Devoted and intelligent, the German Shepherd is one of the most popular dog breeds. They excel in jobs such as search and rescue, police work, and therapy dogs. The German Shepherd was originally bred to herd flocks all day and to this day has endless energy. This breed requires a lot of exercise and a lot of training – especially consistent and early training. Their loyal and protective nature makes them great watchdogs, but they can also be apprehensive of strangers. Early socialization will help them get along with other dogs and people. A well trained and well socialized German Shepherd will make an amazing family member.
