The German Shepherd Training Course For Dog Trainers
How do you feel when a German Shepherd client comes to you looking for help training their dog? How about when a GSD puppy enrols in your puppy classes?
You’re not alone if you feel wary, underprepared or like running for the hills!
German Shepherds are well known for their high intelligence, drive, and fierce loyalty. But they also struggle with reactivity, over-protective behaviour, intense working drive and other habits that make it hard for some owners – and even dog trainers – to manage.
You need to understand this magnificent breed so that you can confidently adapt your training skills and methods to the dog in front of you.
All breeds have innate traits and hereditary behaviours that require deep understanding so you can work with them successfully. And Shepherds are no different.
Welcome to the Happy Shepherd Pro
A six week training course designed for dog trainers and pet professionals.
The Happy Shepherd Pro is a course for dog trainers packed with insights and strategies you can use to revolutionise the way you work with your German Shepherd clients.
With specialist training methods, it’s possible to manage and even transform, seemingly the worst cases.
My programme dives deep into the fundamental characteristics and traits of the German Shepherd to reveal how these traits can manifest as behavioural issues that make them especially difficult for trainers to manage effectively.
As a trainer, I joined the Happy Shepherd course for two reasons; firstly, I was getting an increasing number of clients with German Shepherd puppies who just didn’t know how to handle them.
Secondly, I was also seeing an increase in reactivity cases with the breed. I wanted to make sure that I had a full insight into the breed so that I could offer my clients the best and most appropriate service.
From the outset, I was very impressed with Sue’s knowledge and experience with the breed. She is an absolute mine of information and has been such a wonderful resource for me in the period that I have known her.
Sue is approachable, friendly and extremely caring. She is keen to share her knowledge not only to help fellow trainers, but also to reach and help as many troubled German Shepherds as possible. Such is her passion for the breed.
I found the Happy Shepherd course to be informative and easy to follow and I made a number of friends on my journey. I am now armed with many new tools and I feel confident in my approach.
Another bonus is that my clients are benefiting massively!
I highly recommend the Happy Shepherd Course with Sue. I feel it is an absolute must for people working or living with the breed!
I walk students through proven and effective strategies for learning how to read GSD behaviour, intervene thoughtfully and quickly, and generate positive results for even your toughest clients or cases.

You’ve never worked with a GSD before and don’t know what to expect

I recently completed Sue Kewley’s Happy Shepherd Pro Program. I’m now securing more work with GSDs. This course is a must for professionals and owners.
I’ve spent over 30 years training, breeding, showing and living alongside this wonderful breed through every life stage. From newborn puppies to teenage tearaways right through to senior Shepherds.
And I’d love to share what I’ve learned with you to help you understand Shepherds and get the best out of life with them.
My ultimate dream is to help nurture more Happy Shepherds!
Your free guide to working with German Shepherds awaits
German Shepherds have been bred to be on the alert, curious and to protect. To manage their environment and to keep their flock safe.
In the absence of a job, GSDs will often become self-employed, micromanaging their environment in ways that create big problems.
As a dog trainer, you’ve likely experienced this time and time again.
Discover why these troublesome behaviours are so common and get simple training advice and methods for making progress with these challenging cases today.
