I wanted to share with you an update on Arya. She is now 12 months and doing very well. Attached are some pictures. She is a wonderful dog. Her temperament is exactly what we were looking for in a GSD. She is very social but calm. She is doing very well with basic obedience, so much so we have her off leash when walking around the neighborhood.
She is starting to be more protective however with the right balance…. will bark once if someone is at the door but then sit calmly at the door. She likes to keep the kids in her sight and will want to be within 10 ft of them when they are out on their bikes etc. We have been extremely happy with Arya.
