German Shepherd

This is one professional dog.

Around the world, German Shepherds are considered the premiere versatile worker. Bred to be the ultimate herding canine, they quickly became adept at an amazingly wide range of tasks.

At the end of the 19th century, Germany had many different breeds of herding dogs. A couple breeders began coalescing these different breeds into the ultimate herding dog and resulted in one of the most intelligent and loyal breeds of canine. German Shepherds have been seen doing everything between family pet to police and military operations, service and guard dog, tracking, movies, and, of course, herding.

Their popularity dropped after the World Wars with the stigma of having “German” in their name. Alternately, Great Britain, unwilling to abandon such a wonderful specimen, simply renamed them to Alsatian, which is still referred to today.

German Shepherd’s are extremely loyal and eager to please, but aren’t necessarily the most affectionate dogs. They have a high energy and high intelligence that need a consistent outlet with plenty of exercise. Lacking this outlet, some German Sheperds can become restless and display undesireable, and even dangerous, behaviors.

Trainability: B
German Shepherds love to learn, love to please and are very adept at training efforts. They excel at learning new jobs.

For more information about German Shepherds, visit the German Shepherd Dog Club of America and the German Shepherd Dog Club of Central Ohio.

Some of the information used for the dog breed descriptions was gathered from the American Kennel Club at www.akc.org.
