Hello Everyone

Firstly Hello to everyone here.

this is my first post. my name is Sohan and am a 30 year old father of two.

my family and I have recently rescued a male 8 month old German Shephard (pure bred) that has been neglected (Simba).

Simba was underweight and has not had much human contact before we rescued him. He was out of control and my son (8 years old) was scared to go into the back yard because of Simba's energery and power.

Within a week of owning Simba we contact dog tech and had a trainer come out. It has been 2.5 weeks and we have noticed a large improvement in Simba but still have a long way to go.

I will be posting in the training section shortly for some further advice in different areas.

I look foward to speaking with you all.

Good luck with Simba...give him a lot of time to adjust to his new home and family...maybe teach your children how to recognize when Simba is feeling threatened and give them information on how to react to a growl or an aggressive or fearful stance from Simba... I think this will be very important for them to know what to do in situations..
