Sounds like you guys will be fine.
The problem as I see it isn't with first time owners it is with some people in general. Some people will do exactly what you are doing. It is a lot of work. It takes a cash commitment but they do exactly what needs to be done because they love their puppy and they are willing to put in the hours to make it work.
Some people on the other hand go out buy a gsd. Put in no training, don't socialize with dogs or people, never really developing a bond. They are either ignorant or just plain lazy. So at some point when the dog gets a little bigger and starts to become too much of a bother they drop off at shelter, or just dump off, etc...
