German Shepherds are highly active dogs, fearless but not hostile and are often described in breed standards as self-assured and never shy. The breed is marked by a willingness to learn and an eagerness to have a purpose. Shepherds can become over-protective of their family and territory, especially if not socialised correctly. Due to their loyal nature Shepherds bond well with children they know. While typically approachable, Shepherds do not become immediate friends with strangers.
German Shepherds are highly obedient and not easily distracted, but due to their self-strong will must be trained by a firm hand. Like most large breeds, Shepherds can be aggressive and uncontrollable if not trained correctly. In the United States, German Shepherds are responsible for more random bitings than any other breed and have a known tendency to attack smaller breeds of dogs.
