German Shepherd Dog Breed Origins and History:
In Europe during the 1800s, attempts were being made to ensure there were a set of standards for each dog breed and category of breed. Specifically the German Shepherd dog breed was bred to preserve traits that assisted in their job of herding sheep and protecting flocks from predators, such as wolves. During this time it was common practice within local communities, where shepherds hand selected and bred dogs that they believed carried the herding gene. The need for a dog breed to have intelligence, strength, and a keen sense of smell was more than apparently needed when herders were faced with the predators of their flocks. The end result is the German Shepherd dog breed we see today.
German Shepherd Dog Breed Temperament:
German Shepherds are highly active dogs that requires to be handled and worked (exercised) daily to prevent bad habits from forming. This breed like many of the “protector” breeds have been over publicized in bad light. The breed is marked by a willingness to learn and an eagerness to have a purpose. Owners of a German Shepherd should know they are higher maintenance than other breeds. The term “one man dog” is an often thought of the German Shepherds breed due to their loyal nature and ability to bond well with their trainers. If given the opportunity however that natural instinct can make them become overly territorial, especially if not socialized correctly. Its very important to begin training with your German Shepherd from a young age. German Shepherd rescues are very strict on what dogs get adopted for this reason. Any signs of aggression, as is with any instinctual animal, is a hard habit to extinguish.
