We picked up our Shepherd Rotti cross on Tuesday, she is believed to be about 7 months old.

We are trying to train her, but she is stubborn at the moment. Terrible on the lead and tears stuff up in the backyard.

We are getting training this week and have been watching lots of videos so we will get there.

Welcome! Sounds like an awesome addition to the family :)

You may find she's acting 'stubborn' because she's stressed and it's just too much right now. There's been a lo of big changes, and finding out what is actually motivating to your dog can be tricky-food usually is a good one but needs to be built into routine, toys, etc. Shepherds are very sensitive dogs and it can be a blessing and a curse all at once lol.

Playing games like tug will help build impulse control while getting some energy out for the leash walking, too. Just a fun suggestion you might enjoy :)
