I need to know if german shepards are good with little kids.
I know that the one we have now is good with kids, and the last two we had were good with them too.
But i don't know if all of them are good with kids.
I am doing a research paper for my english class, and i need to know as much details about german shepards.
So, if you know anything helpful please let me know! (:
Be a little patient, not everyone is on the forums at all times ;-) You waited like 5 minutes. Ha :-P
But anyway, if trained and socialized all dog breeds are great with kids... On exception of many small dog breeds.
Here's a hub I have about German Shepherds: http://hubpages.com/hub/Owning-a-German-Shepherd
This is a tricky question. Are german shepherds good with kids?
From my knowledge it is the friendly dogs that can turn on children. This is because adults say 'let the child play with the dog. It's a friendly dog'. So the child amuses itself with the dog.
The child plays / torments the friendly dog. The dog takes as much as it can for months on end. Then one day, for one minute this good, true dog has had enough and nips the child
Suddenly the dog that has given a lifetime of love to the family and the child is named as a ferocious dog and treated as an enemy. Which is totally unfair.
On the other hand, if there is a dog that is known to be bad tempered adults say ' keep away from that dog. It's a bad tempered dog'.
Maybe it is the dog owners that need to understand dogs more.
I still can't answer if German Shepherds are good with kids. Could there be more to this question than meets the eye.
Regardless of breed, the dog needs to be carefully chosen. The grownup owners need to train and socialize the dog so that s/he's comfortable with little children. And the child needs to be trained in proper handling. Both dog and child need to be supervised whenever they are together.
Your question is "But i don't know if all of them are good with kids." and the simple answer is no.
GS's as with all dogs follow commands, habbits, and behavior from their owner and with that, if you know how the dog was trained and brought up then you base your decision upon that.
Just please don't automatically think because a book or someone says they are/aren't good with children, that it's true words spoken. What determines behavior problems starts with the breeder, weather it be established or backyard, then extends to owner.

If you live in the same neighborhood your children grew up in, a lot of your neighbors might actually like seeing your teens having some good clean fun. On the other hand, if you think your teens are some of those that might be standing in line at the grocery store with a dozen or so eggs,...
