German Shepherds are a breed that originated in Germany, they were developed in the late 1800s and were subjected to stringent selection. In the US, this breed was introduced by soldiers returning home from World War I. This breed caught the public eye because of movie stars Strongheart and Rin Tin Tin. By World War II, German Shepherds were the military breed of choice, and in 1999, German Shepherds were third on the American Kennel Club‘s list of the Top 50 Breeds.

German Shepherds not only stand in the front rank of canine royalty but also, they are gentle family pets and steadfast guardians, but before they become any of these things, they are the cutest puppies.
To be active and an athletic breed, a German Shepherd needs lots of exercise for its physical and mental wellbeing. Those who are not exercised enough will become frustrated and is likely to develop undesirable behaviors.
If you have a German Shepherd puppy you can start with short daily walks as well as play sessions in a safe, controlled environment like a fenced area.

Dog behaviorist Nick Jones MA said that German Shepherds are for people who have had experience with similar dogs before. “Provided that the owner is not a complete novice, has experience of training and living with larger protective breeds, the German Shepherd makes an excellent choice of dog for a family. Take time and care to find a reputable breeder that can show you dogs with a good parentage and can demonstrate a sound temperament in the parents and previous litters, as living with a nervous or under-socialized German Shepherd can be stressful.”
According to the specialist, this breed requires plenty of mental and physical stimulation and must be thoroughly socialized, both with the breeder (0-8 weeks) and with the owner (8-16 weeks in particular, and then it’s an ongoing process). Jones stressed that German Shepherds require a great deal of time and effort in the initial stages once the dog goes to its new owner. “Provided that training, socialization, and good manners are put in place from a young age, this a breed that remains highly desirable.”
