Have you Researched the German Shepherd Dog??
It is very important that you research and learn the GOOD, the BAD, the UGLY and the AMAZING characteristics of the GSD. Yes these are dogs that are easy to train, however, they are extremely intelligent, so sit, down, stay is easy for them, throughout their life they need to be mentally and physically challenged. This doesn't mean you have to train them like a working dog, but keeping their minds active, is just as important as keeping their bodies active.
