Welcome to my How To Train A German Shepherd website! Periodically you will find additional articles I have written on the subject listed under “German Shepherd Articles” in the side bar menu. These will giving you additional tips and pointers I like to include to give you as much value as I can.
Now more about me. Our first family dog when I was a boy was a large German Shepherd named “Mike”. We all loved Mike and he quickly became part of the family. However even though my dad loved Mike and took him everywhere, his training methods often bordered on mean. He used a lot of praise but he also used fear and intimidation. As a result Mike was an obedient dog, especially to my dad, but the training methods damaged effected Mike negatively. I believe my dad’s relationship with Mike would have been even better, and he would have been even more obedient, with better training methods.
As an adult and I began to have my own dogs, I have studied the best methods to train them. This website has grown out of that search. As you can imagine I have seen many courses and training methods over the years. The purpose of this website is to give you the benefit of my experience and research. I hope you find the value here you were looking for. Happy training!
