baby girl is very sleepy today, we had kind of a big day.
A family that is interested in buying a dog from the breeder I got Lara from lives nearby. They wanted a chance for their kids to meet one of her dogs so they can decide if they want to get a puppy, so my breeder asked if I could connect with them. That made me feel anxious because wow, my dog is basically going to be the deciding factor if they like this breeder’s dogs or not >.< but Lara did really well! SHe was great with their kids and was veryyyy sweet.
Also these people are thinking about hiring me as their trainer if they proceed to getting a puppy, so maybe that in the future?

Hey :) I just found your blog and I really like what you do!! I have a question. I don't know what is the right decision for me...I want to get a dog and I don't know which breed. I have to say that I absolutely love the nordic breeds like husky, samoyed and malamutes...akitas. They are absolutely gorgeous but I am scared that they aren't the right dogs for me because as much as I love their independent character - I need a dog I can relate on and I need a dog that listens to me. ...? Help.

I’d say that you might want to wait then when it comes to something like a husky. Idk that I am the person to ask for easier breeds. I’ve only had GSDs, huskies, cockers ( i sorta hated these), and vizslas. All dogs will ignore you sometimes because they’re dogs.

I consider german shepherds to be a bit easier and eager to please… but thats me, I know some people consider them a bit difficult. My neighbor has a 6 month old GSD puppy and is currently very frustrated but mine were very good listeners growing up. kaisertheshepherd has a very sweet GSD mmmhoneycombs also has one. I don’t think I’ve heard either one of them say much about their dogs being really stubborn.

I really love Golden retrievers, they’re incredibly sweet, and they are willing to please for the most part, I have a really hard time saying they are easy dogs because goldens still have a ton of energy. The two in our neighborhood get a ton of exercise but are bouncing off the walls, Duke doesn’t like to listen and casey does I think it really depends on the dog sometimes ;/  guidedogintraining has one named stella that she’s training and she would be the one to ask for definitive answers.

Labs are fairly dependable and eager to please. I don’t want to say they’re dumb but the labs I’ve met and spent time with, if you told them to run out in front of a car, they’d listen to you. But they listen! My grandparents lab Abby is an idiot, I’ve spent too much time with her so maybe that is clouding my judgement. Labs are used a lot of service animals so that says something too (as are goldens). I don’t actually think I follow a lab blog oops :/ maybe I do I can’t remember I don’t see many lab pics so I should get on that. 

I’m not really sure if you’re looking for something that looks like a northern breed but is more dependent? I think all sptiz dogs are fairly independent. And itsybitsysleddogs filled everyone (including myself) on the smaller Nordic breeds. They just seem like more portable/compact versions of huskies, not saying they are mini huskies, just that they have a great deal in common. 

I think the issue is how much time are you willing to put into training? My huskies while very independent and stubborn DO listen. They do what I ask for the most part but I am not big on “tricks” we don’t do unnecessary things. We didn’t even teach them “shake” Ani picked it up on her own, she likes to hold hands. Everything we teach has a purpose, I think that makes it easier. My fiance wanted them to learn roll over but they refused to learn, its only for our entertainment so I think hey caught on that it literally had no point. No matter what if you don’t have the time to dedicate to your dog’s instruction and bonding then your dog won’t listen no matter what breed.

Thank you for the shoutout :D

Lara is the most stubborn gsd I have ever met in my entire life LOL I am just quiet about it because we found a way to train through it :D Most aren’t half as bad as her though!!! She’s a nightmare little queen <3

More pics of Lara compared to male &#8220;littermates&#8221;. Neko, the dog on the top, is 1 year older than her - same parents. Woden, the boy on the bottom right, is 1 year younger than her - same parents.
