German shepherd dog also commonly known as Alsatian did not look like what it is today; it looked like a common mongrel having coarse coat and a short tail. However, its origin can be traced to the end of 19th century. It is an intelligent, agile, loyal and self-confident dog; it is fearless but not hostile and it's quite sociable. In the late 1800s with the modernization of transportation and communication a trend towards selective breeding started and records began to be kept. The motive was to breed a dog which could work well under any condition. The making of German shepherd is known to have begun at a dog show when Captain Max von Stephanitz spotted a dog of the primal canine type who had all qualities of endurance, suppleness, intelligence, steadiness and strength. It was a working sheepherder born with all the above mentioned qualities and absolutely needed no training. Its name was Hektor Linksrhein; the captain was quick to buy it and renamed it Horand von Grafath, the first registered German Shepherd Dog. Von Stephanitz founded the Verein fur Deutsche Schferhunde, SV or the German Shepherd Dog club to keep a tight watch on the breeding. The captain's main aim was to develop a dog with "Utility and Intelligence." He maintained that beauty was secondary and a dog was useless to his master if it did not have soundness, intelligence and structural efficiency to make him a good servant. He then developed a breed standard which outlined all the required features. Initially he extensively did inbreeding on Horand and his brother Luchs so that the qualities became permanent in the bloodline and later on bred with other unrelated blood of herding origin to prevent defective off springs. As Germany started becoming more industrialized, Stephanitz realized that he would have to employ the dogs in some other area to keep the breed alive. As a result of his efforts, the dog served during both the world wars as supply carriers, watchdogs and for tracking. After successfully serving in the wars, the breed developed quite a name for itself because of stories told by army men of all countries. Some were also taken to America where as a result of cross breeding, a different group evolved. However, in the United States it is among the top five popular dogs. Okay... let's not get carried away, I was just trying to give you brief rundown! Anyway, I want you to get a copy of the book today, and gain access to the whole details and more specifically, the whole secret tips to training the German Shepherd dogs to become your dependable ally in life and start enjoying a wonderful experience with your pet!
