When we first heard about Packer, he already had 3 homes in his short life, and the last one had returned him within 2 days because he was not housebroken.  This handsome boy just turned one on March 9th.  Unfortunately the important socialization window that young German shepherds need was lost with him.  

We knew he needed more attention to help with some issues including barrier aggression so we asked a trainer who’s familiar with the breed for help, and he took him home to live on his farm.  We’re happy to report that it was only days later that we were receiving videos of Packer going on “pack walks” with some of the trainer’s clients’ dogs.  Then came the videos of Packer walking with the goats, chickens, ducks, and if you can believe even a mini horse!  Packer has really adjusted nicely to his new environment.  He is comfortable with the other dogs and likes to play with them, is very respectful to all the other farm animals on the property and LOVES the trainers young teenage daughters.  

Packer does not respond well to a hard correction, and is a dog who will need a calm, confident experienced adopter who is familiar with the breed. Someone that will continue taking him to obedience training will be a must.  He has a lot of energy and is a very active boy. We also think Packer would do best with another dog in the home.
