Your WGSD Must have a Confident and Consistent Master who will enforce the rules. Before you bring a WGSD into your life, set ground rules (i.e. he/she will never enter this room, obvious potty training, he/she will not leave the back yard, etc.), and never veer from these rules. First you are master, and the friendship will come, and it comes quickly! WGSD's respect solidity. They are intelligent. If you want to allow them to guide you and steer you around while you're walking, they will if you allow them to. Enforce your rules, and talk to them. They do understand you! They love you and they want to please you, but you must be their alpha to have their full loyalty. With these rules they will grow upon the right foundation and you will have a friend for life!
