German Shepherd Background

German Shepherds originated in Germany where they were dubbed the “Deutscher Schäferhund“ or German Shepherd. German Shepherds are highly intelligent and trainable dogs. For this reason, they are often used as sheepherders, drug dogs, bomb sniffers, military dogs, seeing-eye dogs, rescue dogs, and guard dogs. They also make faithful companions when raised well. However, when trained to be vicious or improperly raised, they can be very vicious attack dogs.

Why Some German Shepherd Attacks Happen

German Shepherds are often used as guard dogs for businesses, junkyards, car lots, and warehouses. The problem with having dogs that are trained to defend property against strangers is that the owner has to be careful not to let these dogs come into contact with other “strangers” that he does not intend for them to attack.  If there is a gate left open or a hole in the fence, these dogs may get out and attack people that are not really a threat to the property the dog believes it is protecting. Furthermore, if the property entrances are not properly secured and/or marked with warnings, unsuspecting meter readers, postal workers, salesmen, and other visitors may become victims of German Shepherd attacks by mistake.
