Having Fun with your German Shepherd - Slide Show

The German shepherd  breed is so intelligent and learns so readily that it has been used in the service of people as well as being treasured as a companion and family member. The German Shepherd excels in many dog related activities  There seems to be no end to what we will find this versatile breed engaged in.
