GSD's are watchers that would be normal to me. Dogs don't need strange dogs , they don't need to meet strange dogs, having manners out in public is more important. That they can stay on task with you out in public is important. You having other dogs at home is a plus and all your dog will ever need .. to learn and practice good social skills.

People forcing their dogs into bad situations, bad things can happen when they didn't need to happen to them. If you want to rebuild confidence in your dog, then go to a no contact training class. Let your dog learn trust in a room full of other dogs not paying attention to him, that strange dogs play by the rules....

End game for me is having a dog that an go anywhere and every where and they not interested in people and other dogs doing their own thing all around us. that I can go to a vet clinic that is packed and we can all sit side by side waiting our turn. Not important or a consideration that my dog go play with every dog and every person .. that is not what I got them for and it's not a job requirement for them to have to perform.

just depends on what your expectations you have and what dog you actually have.
