If you’re considering a Nobleheim German shepherd puppy as a family addition please make sure that this breed is the best fit for your family and lifestyle. The German shepherds are strong in body, spirit, and mind. They need much attention, love, and firm guidance as they grow. German Shepherds are very sociable dogs. They need attention and companionship and they will not do well if left in isolation from people and other companion animals.
The NobleheimGerman shepherd puppy matures slowly so you can enjoy your new puppy very nicely and get to learn his likes and dislikes quite well. You should be prepared to provide gentle but firm discipline with a secure environment to help your NobleheimGerman shepherd puppy develop into a healthy, happy, behaved German shepherd dog.
German Shepherds are active and alert, they love to explore their surroundings with room to run and exercise, especially as a puppy. You should be prepared to stimulate this desire to explore and to fulfill the drive of your German shepherd puppy/dog. This exercise can be provided by an active owner, another dog or few with a fenced yard or dog kennel/run.
Tying this dog to a house or a tree is unacceptable and absolutely cruel, it will create frustration, boredom, and a potentially dangerous dog for you and for everyone else. They make excellent family dogs, although they sometimes pick one person as their special person, they can relate well to all members of the household. If they are raised with children, they will develop an abundance of tolerance to the grabbing and poking of tiny fingers.
Raising a puppy with young children takes extra patience and effort for parents. Often the fast growing puppy will use his teeth in playing with children and their toys, sometimes resulting in scratches. Young children often excite puppies who want to wrestle and chase as they did with their littermates. Children can undo all the work a parent has done in training the puppy because a small child is neither firm nor consistent with the pup. As long as parents realize that they will need an extra dose of patience, the German Shepherd puppy can grow up side by side with the children and be a source of lasting memories for all.
