#1 Opinions differ on the German shepherd. Hardly any other dog in the world is so well-known and popular, but hardly any other breed has so many enemies. Perhaps even more than other breeds, German Shepherds are what their masters make them out to be.

#2 This must always be borne in mind before purchasing a German Shepherd puppy. Untrained, left to their own devices or even turned on, a shepherd becomes a nuisance or even a danger to his environment. In the right hands, however, he can become a real dream dog. A very solid basic education is important to keep the dog under control at all times.

#3 In addition, German Shepherds need a job that challenges them both physically and mentally. This can be found, for example, in the various dog sports disciplines such as obedience, agility or tracking.
