The German Shepherd is a highly energetic dog breed, and is popular for its dedication to work and its master. Max Von Stephanitz, a dog breeder, first developed this breed in the 19th century. He is known as the father of the German Shepherd breed. The German Shepherd was the first breed to be ever used as a guide dog for a blind person.
Training German Shepherd Puppies
Training should start when they are 8 weeks old. Till then, you have to care for the pup the same way as you care for a human baby. You can train it yourself or you could get a professional trainer. One thing that you need to keep in mind is its age. Remember, a dog becomes an adult only when it turns a year old.
The daily routine of the pup includes his food and toilet timings, location of his food, water, and bed. You should also time his sleep. The pup should be trained to keep his toys back in place after playing with them. Training these puppies is like training a human infant to tackle things.
You should teach the German Shepherd a few English words, such as 'No', 'Stop that', 'Good', 'Sit', 'Stand', 'Easy', 'Breakfast', 'Supper', 'Biscuit', and so on. Initially, the pup may not recognize the words, but gradually, he will understand what you are trying to convey by the tone of your voice.
