Here’s Neron the young growing German Shepherd and his human at our Sacramento clinic in the Antelope area. He’s at that age where his ears are standing up, he is eating like a horse and growing like a weed! Also Neron is at a perfect age to begin his early training which is essential to him being well adjusted and well behaved. The German Shepard is a relatively new dog from the mid 19th Century which and was bred in Germany from sheep-herding dogs and perhaps some wolf. They are highly trainable, very intelligent and are the 3’rd best learners of the Dog World. The flip side to the Shepherd’s remarkable intelligence is that if left to it’s own devices or if left without plenty of human contact and training the Shepherd can develop some disagreeable habits and psychological problems. Also, they are strong and loyal but can carry some physical flaws which should be carefully investigated before buying or breeding them. Start training your Shepherd thoughtfully and early and expect a long and rewarding relationship with this universally capable breed. – Geoffrey Antipa
