What’s bad about German shepherds?

German shepherd dog is the first breed of rescue. In other words, more German Shepherds are homeless, abandoned, or abandoned than any other breed in the world. Sad, but true. Unfortunately, the number of euthanasia we see every day is amazing. The lucky ones are back, but not enough to stop the trend. Therefore, we ask you to read the following to make sure that this is the right breed for you and your current lifestyle.


The temperament of German Shepherd Dog

Our varieties vary greatly in type (structure) and temperament. Each of these German shepherds is an individual, and one size cannot and cannot fit all people. Lack of research often leads to mismatches; individuals or families have wrong types of German shepherds, and there are unrealistic expectations and common misconceptions about the level of commitment required to spend a lifetime with German shepherds. German shepherd dog is not the simplest, but certainly the most versatile breed. They are usually not round and easy to keep. All German shepherd dogs need constant mental and physical stimulation, as well as human companionship, socialization and training. This is not a species abandoned in the yard, away from its family, isolated or lost contact or attention. German shepherd dogs are not TV fans. They insist on interacting with their own individuals or family members. They don’t thrive like dogs in a kennel or backyard. If you’re left outside, even when you’re not at work, it can lead to a lot of behavioral problems. These problems include, but are not limited to, digging, barking, separation anxiety, fear of attack, jumping and escaping, destructive behavior, and excessive defensive / protective postures against people and other pets. These German Shepherds need to be exposed to the outside world, strangers, strange dogs, sports and noise related to leaving home, and, at least, basic obedience training. Regular exercise and activity is necessary. German Shepherds are all interacting with their people, with their people. Although to varying degrees, the German Shepherd is a working breed.
All German Shepherds shed their hair all the year round and “blow” twice a year. If you’re picky about bunnies or hair on clothes or furniture, maybe the one that doesn’t fall off is more suitable for you. German Shepherds were born to protect their families, territories and ties of life. They are very loyal, so the decision to use German shepherd dogs should not be impulsive. Without proper training and socialization, they can become a “loaded gun,” or extremely timid and fearful.


German shepherd dogs are sometimes cold or suspicious of strangers, and rarely submit to other dogs

German shepherd dogs tend to be more gender-specific than most other breeds; that is, they are more likely to get along with the opposite sex. Putting two males or two females in the same home can be troublesome, even if they get along well in the first place. If not well socialized, they tend to become dogs and attack any unfamiliar dogs. German Shepherds don’t respond well to being alone for a long time. They are energetic dogs who like to have work to do or keep busy. Their minds need exercise as much as their bodies. Although it works sometimes, German Shepherds are generally not as good “pack” dogs as they are in multi-dog families. They tend to compete for attention, and they need a lot of personal time with their people. Some people with higher motivation are trained to work, and they have to have a job or their relationship will fail.

German shepherd are still puppies until they are two years old

It’s a widely held belief that if you get a very young puppy, it can “shape” into your existing family, thus ensuring a strong bond and success in your bag. This is especially common in families with children. In fact, any dog has a risk factor; you won’t know what kind of health and core temperament you really have until it matures. Raising a puppy from an early age does not guarantee that it is a good fit. Generally speaking, German shepherd dogs of any age are well adapted to a new environment in which their needs are met.
