Hi everyone, My name is Khalid Qassem from Kuwait. I am a Dog Lover and specifically a German Shepherd fanatic, but I love them all (breeds, that is) and have always been raised with a Dog beside me: Mutt, Boxer, Shih-Tzu and GSD..loved them all! So I am now partners with Sergeant (I like to use partner rather than "owner" or "care-giver", or even "guardian"...Partner seems to describe our status better!). I am married with 2 Children (Jude is 8, Tareq is 6) and have had Sergeant in our life for 1 year now. He is a pedigree GSD with a wonderful temperament and a very loving nature...Right now he can come, free, heel, sit, lay down and stay all off leash...He can also "shake", "go to place", "fetch" and "go home". So these are all trick/commands I need the dog to know...I have joined this forum to teach Sergeant tricks for fun and for show...I just want everyone to love my dog like I do...just so no one thinks I am crazy!!! Looking forward to contributing and reading your posts and threads!
