German Shepherds, Mixes, And Pet Parents

Charlie, “Mom, enough with the pictures. Let me sleep!”

Charlie is our first GSD mix. Most of our dogs have been pit bulls or pit bull mixes, and although I did do some research about this particular breed, there were things that did amaze me, so here it goes:

  • Intelligence – Totally! Charlie takes only a few times to understand what I want from him.
  • Watchdogs – Yes! Even when I take him out to pee on our backyard, he surveys the area
  • Aloof/Reserved dogs – It takes him a little bit of time to make friends, but GSDs are not aggressive dogs
  • Velcro dogs – Charlie prefers, and this is putting it mildly, to be with his people.

Although we did have GSD puppies when I was growing up, they belonged to my grandma and aunts, so when I finally got to learn more about them was when I started to work with my clients’ dogs and I am just amazed at the things they could do when behavior and training is part of their every day life.

With that being said, what kind of dog do you have, and what do you like about his/her breed? Enjoy your week!
