German Shepherds are known for being intelligent, trainable, alert, and loyal. But, without proper training and socialization, this breed can display territorial, guarding tendencies.
So, they can be wary of strangers and unfamiliar animals, or anyone outside of their immediate family at home.
This doesn’t mean German Shepherd’s cannot get along with other dogs. In fact, a well socialized GSD can be very friendly and sociable.
But, socialization and good training from the moment you bring your puppy home is vital. And if properly socialized and trained well, you’ll find them hanging out adorably like you’ll see in the video below! How adorable!
