    • Hi Victoria, I would have liked to have got back to you sooner… phone line been out for the last two weeks and I’m depending on my mobile phone to access the internet. My knowledge on owning GSD’s myself is its not unusual for the breed to be wary of strangers. One of my GSD was like Kimber where he needed time to warm up to outsiders… once he knew they were not a threat he too was ok with them and happy to greet them. I still use to take precaution with him by sending him to a place first with those he was uncertain about til I was sure he would be ok with them. Teaching him a “leave it” command I found to be very helpful too. Though with Kimber it seem it’s mainly men she is mostly concerned with. In my situation I found it better to use precaution measures just in case he did bite.
