Well I just picked up our new family member today, he is a 8 week old male german shepherd, I have had plans on training him to be a shed hunter but know of no one training a shed dog so iv spent the past 3 weeks reading up on it as much as I can. So anyway, I was able to bring him home today, my women ended up buying a basket full of toys and the only thing he likes are the sheds I have sitting on the floor under my deer mounts. How could it get any better then that! I had to put them away, but left a small one out for him, not sure if I should really just let him have it as a chew bone or not though.,anyone have any tips for me. Also all the research if done, i think I only saw 1 other person use a German shepherd.
