I see... wow, this is kind of all new to me. But I tried to do as much research as I could before getting him-- I'm glad I did, it's kinda paying off. Preparation is the key . I'm going to keep in mind that he's still a puppy, he's been doing great with the exception of a few accidents now.

You've done a WONDERFUL job of preparing for Rocky. There are just some things you have to experience first hand, though; like the great loving heart these dogs have - and their ability to make mischief! You've been warned, lol. They're smart, clever and quite imaginative!

Remember he's a baby. I'm sure he'll grow more and more attached to you. He's a GSD, right? Talk about loyal ! He may love your family members, but he'll love and want to be with you, too.

If you don't want your pup to nip just say NO, NO BITING and then give her the chance to do it again, if she does it again then you say NO NO BITING again.

I always give my dog to make a mistake again right after i tell her not to so i can make sure she understands, after 2-3 times she gets the idea.

I found my pup didn't play much when i kept saying no biting but then i decided to let her and her bite is soo soft now (she is 5 months) when i put my hand in her mouth when we are playing her teath hardly touch my hand.

Your dog acting the way she does NORMAL, I got mine 3 months ago and went through everything your saying, when she got to ignoring me i done the same to her and she ran to me after a week every time i moved.

You have done a wonderful job geting ready for this new addition. You have to realize that this is an adjustment for the both of you. I think its a little to early to get overly concerned with Rocky's behavior. Its a new environment for him also, as well as it is for you. Just don't worry so much and let the 'getting to know you' (sort to say) period play out. Dogs CAN and will pick up on any worry emotions that you have. As a puppy, Rocky is probably just try to get to know you all and where he fits in.

Just keep giving the love your giving him!
