Since I’ve been adopted my new mom and dad take me to a different park most every day. I need more exercise than my two brothers, Zack and Magic. At some point when I am under voice control, I will go hiking with Mom and we will have a great time. I’m taking private lessons with a trainer who works with working dogs. The training part is easy, but I get very excited when I see other dogs when I’m on leash. I’m OK off leash around other dogs, but my last family didn’t walk me much on a leash as a puppy.
The trainer took Mom and I to a very large dog park last week and I did just great. I was playing ball with a group of other German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois dogs. I always got to the ball first. Now I just have to learn how to “out” from the ball. I like to drool and whimper when I get a tennis ball. Mom says I go into an altered state. She says that I’m her project dog and will take time to train, but it will be worth it. She has faith in me to become a great dog.
Zack is my little brother. He follows me everywhere, but becomes bored when I stare for hours looking for birds or squirrels in the trees in the yard. I’m very quiet and Zack likes to sing and dig in the dirt. It’s annoying. Magic is an old guy, but he’s quiet and respects my space. It’s nice to be part of a new pack.
Your new friend,

That is so great you are going to dog parks and being able to play with others. It's normal for you to be excited when you are on-leash!
that sounds like great fun going to those dog parks and meeting new pups, I know that you will do so well with your training!
Oh I'd love to watch for birds with you.

Yeah, it takes a lot of focus to train Mom. She's a slow learner, but I love her!
