Hi this is Kody, we would love to socialise him more but quiet new to the area and don’t have friends with Gsd

it would be great to meet up have a walk , also interested in pet share for holidays or just a loverly Aunty who could help out.

He is a beautiful boy.  You are in England?  I am in the U.S. does Kody need a German Shepherd to walk with? My dogs have walked with other breeds, Beagles, Mals, a Jack Russel.

I'm in Louisiana. Are you from England? As DW said, you may be able to get someone else to walk with even if it isn't a German Shepherd.

It’s just GSD owners inderstand the breed, many other think their pooch will get eaten

Yes, they do.  The best suggestion is to start talking to people with dogs, and see if they know anyone with one.

I think that's because too many people with big dogs say their dogs are fine and then allow their dogs to go up to someone else's dog. That can be good or it can be bad. As I tell people in my class, if you're talking unneutered dogs or even one neutered and one not and there's a bitch in season within two miles, then dogs that might have gotten along, or did so in the past, can suddenly want to drive the other male dog away. Dogs can walk with their owners with other dogs and their owners without needing to meet and greet or play. Perhaps if you talk to people, tell them your dog is under your control and you won't allow him near their dog, then you'll find walking partners.

What a gorgeous dog! I hope you find someone to walk with! :)

Personally, I like walks alone with my boy. I think he does, too. It keeps him listening to me, and definitely has an impact on our bond. But I do understand wanting to find someone to walk with.
