The German shepherd is one of the cleverest breeds of dog, with only the border collie and the poodle being considered more intelligent.
The bark of a German shepherd can be as loud as a chainsaw.
The German Shepherd dog was originally bred to herd sheep. But no matter what task you give it, it will take on any challenge enthusiastically and master it with unparalleled determination and great courage. Therefore, it is also ideal as a guide dog, a dutiful guard and police dog and as a reliable rescue dog. When well trained, it is also a great family dog and very chield-friendly. But the energetic, active dog would not be satisfied with a life on a sofa.

Competence and Experience - these two elements have been the basis of our company since we started as a supplier to the plastic industry. Friedrich Schleich founded the company in 1935. The now famous Schleich figurines first came to life in the 1950's.
The design of the Schleich products and the creation of the required tools are done in house, thus enabling us to control the initial vital steps of creating a new product. The production itself takes place at the company`s German headquarters and in a number of production facilities in foreign countries. Our products are marketed world wide.
