I love his quickness, but any advice not to slow him down, but to stop him before he makes contact.
My first Working dog, but not my first GERMAN Shepherd, and I am learning quite a bit from him.
Thanks for the advice in advance.

I never laughed so hard about male handlers and the fetal position!!
Thanks to Koots and yourself for the input!

The marker can also be used to teach the send-out.
And yeah, my dog USUALLY isn't bad with her recall, but one night she bent my knee backwards when she came in too fast. Was limping for a couple of days!

I have been slammed into on Recall a few times, but not being a bloke helps ! The only backward bending of my knee(s) however has been when two GSDs play-wrestling have bashed past me because they are too intent on their game with each other and the hume has stoopidly been in their way !! 2 x 40 kilos of dog can have a long lasting effect on the ol' knee-joint geography !
Terrific advice from EmoryG and Koots, ought to do the trick if you follow those tips. Trying to think if I ever did anything else that might help, but they + Sunny seem to have it covered. Best of luck.
