History

  • He originated in Germany from herding and farm dogs
  • He was developed in Germany in 1899 into the breed we know today by a German man named Von Stephanitz
  • He's often used as a police, guard, military, and herding dog as well as a dog for leading the blind
  • He's a very popular breed

Personality and Behavior

  • He's one of the most intelligent breeds
  • He's fearless and courageous in all situations
  • He's physically very strong
  • He's extremely loyal and protective; he may even become a little overprotective of his home and family
  • He makes a very good guard dog not only because he can back himself up if need be but he also look imposing
  • He bonds well with children and is naturally inclined to be protective of them
  • He's highly alert which makes him a good watchdog
  • He isn't overly affectionate
  • He tends to bonds very closely with one person in the home; his master
  • He's self assured and self confident
  • He's an aloof dog and not quick or overly keen to make friends with strangers
  • He is the best police, guard and military dog known to man
  • He can be aggressive with other male dogs

Training

  • He's one of the easiest of all breeds to train because he learns so quickly. (There's only a few of these super-fast learning breeds--and he's one of them!)

Shedding

  • He sheds profusely! You will find a lot of hair in your home - stuck to your couch, carpets and clothes - and to just about everything else. You will be vacuuming regularly.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His medium-length coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds profusely you may find yourself brushing it a couple of times a week, or even daily, to reduce the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
