Are German Shepherds Good with Kids?

We often get asked, “Are German Shepherds good with kids?”  The answer is yes, absolutely!  They are one of the best breeds for families with young children.  Check out the video above if you haven’t already…

We understand the trepidation that parents feel when considering a protection dog for their family. That’s why the Wayne Simanovich team goes to great lengths to properly train and socialize all of our dogs around children.

It starts with selecting the right dog.  German Shepherds are great with kids, and will develop a strong loyalty to you and your children.  Our team goes a step further, personally selecting each dog that we place with our clients, and training them from day one.

We have families of our own, and we train each dog as if it were going to be protecting our own children. Simanovich-trained German Shepherd dogs come with a peace of mind, knowing that you have added a loyal defender and companion to your family tree.

Security is always a concern. There is no finer companionship and security then a well trained protection dog. There is no better provider of this type of dog than Wayne Simanovich. He knows what he's doing. Our dogs are big part of our family.

Thanks Wayne. Just what we needed. We love him.
