What makes German Shepherds great pets?

German Shepherds have a reputation for being pretty tough. As puppies, they can be a little boisterous, but if trained properly they will grow to be excellent family dogs.

As German Shepherd owners know, these dogs are fiercely loyal to their pack, highly intelligent and very courageous. But if socialised at an early age with clear boundaries, there's no reason for this behaviour to lead to any aggression. They are the preferred breed of the police and armed forces, and form a strong bond with their handler

Taking out German Shepherd pet insurance could help keep your dog in the best health possible and protect you from unexpected and expensive vet bills.
