Are German Shepherds good family pets?
Well bred and properly trained German Shepherds make excellent family pets. German Shepherds are naturally protective of their “pack”. Your new German Shepherds ranking in the “pack” should be established as the bottom member below humans. A young puppy should never be left unattended with young children, however, if the children learn to respect your new German Shepherd puppy, it will be a wonderful companion for the children as they grow up together.
