Ive never really liked animals because of the chewing house breaking etc. I bought my Gsd with my husband and as soon as he was old enough we brought him home. He literally always went outside never in his cage. Couple accidents inside but he whined to go just we were busy. Great with my 4 year old he loves him they always play together. He is a puppy still about 15 weeks and does snap playing around but not bad. He's Definetly a big part of our family. Just like another big baby. German... (read more)

Very intelligent and loving breed. great with my kids and after i had shoulder surgery he would come to check on me and it was amazing how careful he was around my shoulder. he would actually heard my other dog away from my shoulder when he thought he got to close. this breed like all breeds will step up and get aggressive with strangers if he or she isn't confident that you are capable of protecting the family. if he/she does have confidence in you then your GSD will relax and only step up...

my dog isn't a full German Shepard she is a cross bread (with collie we think) she was a bundle of joy since the day we got her we got her at 1 and a half ish from our local dogs home and she is great only downside is she pulls and jumps up on people although that might be cause her previous owners didn't train her from a pup. most of the reviews don't match word for word because its because all dogs (even same breed) are different in there own unique way based on parents, training,...

Every dog lover will say that their dog(s) are the best that anyone could ever wish to have and I'm no different!
I owned three GSD's, 1 male & 2 females from 1971 to 1984 and I can say with hand on heart that they were the most dedicated of dogs to their owner.
They were so easy to train and were alert at all times. I still remember with a big grin on my face, the time when my male dog pinned a burglar to the outhouse wall while the other two barked & growled at their quarry when this... (read more)

My scorcher is wonderful.
I rescued her she was 8 at the time.
First day we had her someone stopped us and asked it we could buy her off us because she was a puppy. (which she wasnt).
Since then she has been great company, friendly and very active.
I cant fault her other than when we got her she already had AF bad enough for her to need steriods for the rest of her life.
Great breed I honestly love them. (read more)

I think German Shepherds are distinctive in terms of their attachment and loyalty to their owners. We have only had two, but with both I was acutely aware of feeling protected and safe with them. Although neither of them were aggressive in any way, I sensed that they were assessing anyone who was a stranger, e.g. anyone who even looked at me when I was walking them. I have learned from my mistakes in terms of not socalising one of them enough with children and adults when he was younger, so... (read more)

I have owned German shepherds for 25 years and currently own 4 of them. All 4 are easy to handle together on leash in one hand. These dogs do need a strong willed owner willing to be pack leader, their desire to please in second to none in the dog world. You will get used to being constantly watched by these dogs.
Do not get one of these dogs if you are not prepared to train it, or are going to keep it as a yard dog. These dogs will become a member of your family. Mine also remember every... (read more)

A very loyal, obedient and intelligent dog that needs a responsible knowledgeable owner and plenty of exercise. Can be aggressive and temperamental which could be a danger for small children. More suited to mature adult owners. (read more)

I have had many different breeds of dogs, and after having a german shepherd my family never had another breed - we were set on shepherds. they are without a doubt the most beautiful dogs, so loving, playful, loyal, trustworthy and protective. excellent with kids, I've never been worried about my kids playing with any of my shepherds.
I have been breeding and training shepherds for 6 years and can't imagine life without my shepherds. (I never breed without having found suitable homes for... (read more)

I love my German Shepherd Dog to pieces.. I have been brought up by them most of my life and I know that my dog would do anything for me, as well as being loyal is he great with kids (especially the neighbour's) even for his size. Although, he can be very hyper and attacks anything mechanical that moves (cars, forklifts, bikes) in which he has already been hit..
But I would always have a GSD, and hopefully will bring my kids up around these superb dogs. (read more)

Originally bred to herd sheep, the GSD is one of the most loyal breeds in the world. Unrivalled in intelligence, these dogs are used in a wide variety of jobs serving the public - such as seeing eye and hearing dogs and airport sniffers, police dogs, as well as great stock dogs.
Fiercely protective of their "pack", the GSD makes a terrific guard dog, without showing such aggression displayed in other breeds. I have witnessed this first hand when I was home alone one night when my parents... (read more)

German Shepherd dogs are great companions. I would start training my puppy from day 1. This is not a dog to leave in the back to yard, it will chew the siding off your house if bored. You have to consider this dog a member of your family, and should be treated that way. (read more)

German Shepherds make ideal guard dogs but can have problems with families. They are extremely protective and can also get jealous if they aren't used to children, etc. Very intelligent and perfect if you want a loyal friend and have no children. They do malt a lot too. (read more)

German Shepherd - For all the bad points I have listed, the good points definitely outweigh them and I will definitely be getting another one in the future. They are great family pets - my 18month old loves to cuddle both of mine and they are starting to enjoy the attention she gives them (although they were a bit wary at first). They do not need massive amounts of physical exercise as this can have a real negative effect on their joints when they get older, but they do like to be mentally... (read more)

The German Shepherd dog is one breed you will always love. Having puppy walked for the police, I have found that it is best to socialise them at a early age, get him used to other dogs, people, children, walking on the lead. Get your dog used to only one toy, e.g., Kong, so when training he will do anything for it.
Hope these tips are of use!!!! (read more)

German Shepherd Dogs are the best working breed, but at the same time, are excellent family dogs. They require a lot of time and attention, but for this you will be rewarded with loyalty, obedience, and devotion. German Shepherd Dogs are very clever and trainable. They are very intense dogs and will focus on their training with single-mindedness. There is a misconception that German Shepherds are vicious but this is only the case if they are badly raised. German Shepherds are seeing eye... (read more)
