    Tazer is a German Shepherd and is now 5yrs old. He has completed phase 3 off-leash control. Tazer has always been incline not to make immediate friends with strangers and I don’t allow them to pet him until I know he is comfortable with them. They are usually friends or family members that we have invited into our home or at the dog club where he knows the members. He has been like that from the time he was a puppy… very sweet with us and my hubby little dog but wary of strangers.(Now people are wary of him). Tazer has never been taught to bark, stare a person in the eyes while jumping up and down in front of strangers that enter our property before I am there. (regardless of my sign) He is always looking for the eye contact of people. Tazer is not the type of dog to bite but would if he believe a person was a threat. I think the problem with him not holding on in his bite work is his too focus on the agitator then the equipment and I don’t know why. It’s like he waiting on a further action from the agitator. I have found another club run by a Security company that are doing dog training and I’m hoping they will be able to help me finish off his protection training. The other company that was running the course in Property and Family Guardian Training haven’t return my calls.
