Message Subject I'm thinking of getting a german shepherd
Poster Handle SilverPatriot
Post Content

German Shepherds are good dogs but not a breed for everyone much as the breeds I have a St. Bernard and Anatolian Shepherd are not for everyone due to their innate and/or physical characteristics.

You are correct socialization of any dog is important as is experiencing different everyday circumstances as this helps them interpret other new experiences. When I introduce my Anatolian Shepherd to a new person, I have to sit on the ground to show him that I am comfortable in their presence while no introduction is necessary for the St. Bernard.

I am not certain as what you are on about as I simply voiced my opinion and experiences.

My point is...talking to a dog is more about body language.
 Quoting: Chip

Yes, my apologies you are correct it is pointless to command a dog such as a German Shepherd and especially an ancient independent thinking breed such as the Anatolian Shepherd where one has to lead by example.

I researched the breed and learned they will lie down when not at alert and will uncurl their tails when not threatened therefore I assume that position and he accepts new people.
