There’s just something about German Shepherd dogs that attract people to them. It’s that certain something that probably led you to click the link to this story; you’re probably thinking of getting one.
It’s actually more than one thing. There are lots of reasons people love to own German Shepherd dogs.
Here are some of the most popular reasons.
The Greeting They Give You
Whether you’ve been gone for 8 hours at work, or 8 minutes at the store, your German Shepherd dog will always greet you like a long lost friend when you walk in the door.
Who wouldn’t want to come home to that level of enthusiasm, every single time they come home. That greeting is a warm hug after a tough day at work that you don’t get from most pets, and it’s one of the main reasons people love their GSDs.
It’s been said that you can teach a German Shepherd to just about anything.
They’re inquisitive, perceptive, and relentless problem solvers. If you put in the time to properly train them, you will make all other dog owners jealous with what your GSD can do. This is why they’re the go-to choice breed for the police and the FBI.
They Know How You Feel
German Shepherd dogs also have incredible emotional intelligence. They are keenly in tune with your feelings and always want to show you that they “get it.” Sadly, we can’t teach humans to do the same…
They can pick up on how you feel and what you need. They can tell if you’re sad and need some affection, or you’ve had a long day and just want to be lazy at night.
They’re Great With Kids
Your kids will love your GSD, and it will love them. German Shepherd dogs are family-focused and extremely loyal to the people they love. They will adore and protect your children forever.
Of course, proper training and socialization are crucial to making sure your German Shepherd puppy knows how to act around children (particularly young ones) and vice versa. But once the connection is made, your German Shepherd is a part of the family, and it will warm your heart to watch them interact and play with your kids.
