Ive got a 2 year old female German Shepherd. Ive had her since she was 6-8 months old. I am handicapped and I have no money to pay someone to excercise her. Ive researched severeral websites and they all talk about how the dog will get upset and behave badly if this is so. But why does my GS dog NOT behave badly???

Are you giving her plenty of mental stimulation? What do you with her?

There could be lots of reasons.

First and foremost is that she likely has a genetically calm disposition. If she was a high drive, high energy dog with no physical exercise and/mental stimulation, you and she would probably be driving each other crazy.

Another reason could be that she is getting enough mental stimulation to keep her happy. Mental work can me more tiring than physical exercise.
