1 The Breeder That You Get Your German Shepherd From Is The First Important Step. Make sure that your chosen breeder is a caring breeder, not aggressive, abusive, or indifferent to the puppies. Do your due diligence and make sure that this breeder had no history of bad breeding. Also, make sure that the dam and sire of this puppy are free from disease. Take the time and put in the effort now, and you will be rewarded by getting a gine little puppy.
Ever gone for a walk and watched some poor person being dragged at the end of a big dog’s leash? I always ask if they are practicing for “water skiing” (like being pulled behind a boat). The problem with this is: that if the dog is not friendly, what happens if the dog owner falls (which I have experienced, and that is scary; luckily she managed to hold on to her viscious dog).
The problem stems from the dog knowing he is in charge, and of course taking advantage of it.

A fully grown German shepherd is an extremely powerful dog. It is very important for your safety, and your dog’s safety that he learn how to properly walk, and sit, and stay for that matter.
“Before you buy a puppy, either for your family, or hopefully never as a gift to anyone else, do you really know how much care, time, patience it takes to raise a puppy?”

Please think before you buy that puppy.
Puppies, oh boy, they are cute, but, they take so much time, care, energy. Can you really give all that, day after day after day? You have to feed them up to four times a day (can’t do that if you are out working all day long). Maybe even sacrifice coming home from work… every day, are you ready for that? Or, your kids may have to come home right after school to let them out, are they willing to do that? And, during housetraining, you have to go take your puppy out after (instead of) a nap, if it’s raining, or snowing, or blowing. Do you want to do that, all the time? And, then there are mistakes, will it ruin your floor, or carpet. Will you get angry of it, tired, ticked off? If so, DO NOT GET A PUPPY FOR CHRISTMAS.
