Welcome GSD lovers! My name is Lenni and I have a beautiful 8 year old German shepherd dog named Allie. Allie is my first German Shepherd and I was totally clueless on the joys and demands of owning a German Shepherd until after I already had Miss Allie in my home. The first months of having a rambunctious German Shepherd puppy were rough (a tear or two of frustration may have been shed), but I learned a lot about the breed during my journey. I’ve learned that German Shepherds are intelligent, courageous, loyal, fun, and just an all around wonderful breed. That being said, there was definitely a learning curve for me with training, food choices, toys, socialization and other aspects of having my first German Shepherd. I am hoping that by sharing my knowledge and experiences, I will help save others some time and frustration and we can all focus on enjoying the wonderful German Shepherds in our lives.
