A very loyal, intelligent dog. Not for a first time dog owner usually. They love younger children if they are raised with them. The GSD needs to be socialized and trained from a very young age. These dogs are large, muscular, strong, quick dogs and very protective of their families and pack members. If you want to know where your GSD is look at your feet. They do shed moderately and will blow their coats twice a year. They do need a job to do and plenty of exercise or they will become destuctive out of boredom. They do great at agility, protection work and make excellent farm dogs.
