About the German Shepherd
As their name implies, the German Shepherd dog is a large-sized breed that originated in Germany. They are currently the second most popular breed of dog in the United States, after the Labrador Retriever. This breed has a wolf-like appearance with a long snout and pointed ears because they are direct descendants of wolfdogs.
The German Shepherd is a herding breed renowned for its bravery, loyalty, and guarding instincts. It is a top choice for search and rescue work, police work, military service, and as a guard dog. They can also be beloved pets for many energetic or athletic families.
Care and Training
Taking care of a German Shepherd is a big responsibility. They are active and smart dogs, so they must be kept busy learning, playing, exercising, and working. German Shepherd dogs should start with early socialization and obedience training to prevent over-guarding and violent behavior. Because of their intelligence and enthusiasm for work, they can easily be trained and quickly follow directions.
For those who want their dogs to receive a Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate from the American Kennel Club, we encourage you to have them participate in an all-breeds CGC obedience training program. It teaches your dog good manners and trains them to be well-behaved in various situations.
