Is The German Shepherd The Right Dog For Me?



I have a large yard with plenty of running room. I also have a kennel with roof over it and a portable air conditioner next to it. I am still 15 so I go to school from 7am TO 2pm, while I’m at school my brother will walk the dog every two hours, he/she will be a family dog, since we are an active family we will stay outside more than we do inside. We know the responsibilities that come with raising a dog and we are fully capable of handling them. Anyway after I come back from school the Mental and Physical training will begin from after lunch until 8 or 9pm.

I’m really looking forwards to reading what you have to say *THE DOG WILL BE FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY SO HE WILL ONLY BE ALONE AT BED TIME AND ABOT 3 HOURS EVERY MORNING other than the week end where I will spend the whole day with him?her…

So Is It The Right Dog For Me ?
We Will Also Use Him/Her As A Guard Dog 🙂
BTW Do Any Of You Guys Know Which Age I Should Get The GSD Becuase It’s Gonna Be An Outdoors Dog ?

    Yes to methe german shep sounds like a good dog, just make sure you give it alot of excercise but it sounds like you will because your family is active. Also make sure that you train it properly or bring it to training classes especialy if you want it to be a guard dog!
    Also make sure you have the money for it because they are a big dog they will eat, drink and poop alot so make sure you have the money for its food vet bills ect….
    Hope this helps 🙂

    Well, let’s see…sounds like you are prepared. It’s hard to say if any particular dog is for you because I don’t know you. But I will tell you for owning my 2 German Shepherd puppies for only a week, they are a handful. Do not reprimand them for bad behaviour or they will learn to be aggressive. So we try not to do that. They respond better to positive reinforcement, praising them for going outside per se.

    The first week, I am not joking, they have had us up every hour and a half to the most 3 hours. I have not had a complete night of sleep since I have had them. Do your homework before you guys pruchase! They have sensitive stomachs and they cannot play after they eat because of a stomach problem that they have.

    I think you have made a great choice. There are alll kinds of great resouces out there on the web. German Shepherd Dogs (GSD) make great companions, work dogs, and guardians (which we bought ours for this too)..

    Good luck!
