Training German Shepherd Dogs. I have 3 dogs and 3 cats :-)
I trained my oldest shep, Willow, to herd sheep and when she retired we had earned 3 sheepherding titles and one obedience title. My next oldest shep, Cairo, was trained for obedience competition from the time he was 8 weeks old. He recently retired after earning 7 AKC and UKC titles in classic obedience and rally obedience. Our proudest moment was taking first place at the 2007 German Shepherd Dog Nationals. :-) My youngest GSD is still a puppy. He's an awesome companion and guard dog but unlikely to be suitable for competition.
