Hi everyone, My name is Anne Jones. Many of you will recognize my name from other sites. I live in CT & have 2 GSDs,( a horse & a cat). My female is an almost 2 1/2 yr old black & tan E & W German working line Leerburg bitch. She is from his Otis line & is just as hard as he was. SHe has pretty exteme drives. All of her drives are. I have had her since 9 wks old. My male is an almost 3 1/2 yr old dark sable E & W German working line out of Belgium kennels. He is 3-4 on Fado Karthago. He is high drive but is also a soft dog. I have only had him for 5 months. Makes for intesting training. I have to always be thinking about what I am doing. If I ever made the error of putting the kind of correction on him that I do my female....he would totaly shut down. I am training them in SchH & some personal protection work. I am new to working dogs, but not dogs. I have spent most of my life (since 7) with horses & just retired my x-country horse last year after 19 years of almost daily riding & numerous competitions. He will turn 23 in July. So now it is time to work dogs full time & I am learning a ton & having a great time. Glad to be part of this great forum. Hope to lean allot & help others with what I am leaned.
