you can train your dog to be whatever kind of dog
you want but you have to train and socialize the dog.

my dog. whatever it is i want to be protected from

Hello all. I am very very very interested in GSDs, and so far have liked what I have seen, but I am curious as to what others think about the compatibility of GSDs and my lifestyle.
1>>> First, what I look for in a dog: Fun, loving, loyal, somewhat protective (warning barks), and not overly friendly with strangers.
2>>> I also know that GSDs are high energy. I'm a pretty active guy. I jog and go to the gym. I don't think I'd have a problem exercising a GSD.
So what do you think? Would a GSD fit the bill?
3>>> Are you dogs loyal, protective, and aloof?
4>>> Do you think they would go with anyone who had a treat? lol
