Facts - Overview

One of the most well-known breeds of dogs is the German Shepherd. Also known as the Alsatian or the GSD, the German Shepherd dog breed is known for being smart and capable, with an unmatched courage and devotion. German Shepherd dogs are versatile; they also excel at whatever they are involved in, whether it be police and military service, search and rescue, competitive obedience, herding, assistance and guide for the handicapped.

German Shepherds have bodies that are very strong and well-proportioned. They have this light and solid bone structure, and a slightly elongated body. They have this muscular stance that makes people think that they are these vicious creatures, when in reality, they can be sweet and cuddly.

German Shepherds love the company of their families. They are loyal to them and will do anything to defend and serve them. They have this protective instinct and guard their families against strangers, but will only bark when they think it’s really necessary.

This breed of dogs loves physical activity that’s mixed with an exercise of some kind. They love a good challenge, and will appreciate time spent together through daily walks or ball chasing. They would love it if you spend time with them, and this quality time will help develop them into becoming a sweeter and more affectionate member of the family.

You don’t need to do a lot to maintain their thick coat. They don’t require everyday baths; all they want is for you to comb their hair regularly to prevent clumps and too much shedding.

With the right amount of assistance and exposure, a German Shepherd can be trusted with toddlers or small children. He’s protective of them, but still exudes a gentle demeanor. With proper training and instructions, he can also live peacefully with your other dogs or pets.

German Shepherds are loved for their pleasing personalities. There’s no doubt as to the reason that people prefer to have the German Shepherd – they have a lot of qualities that a pet owner would appreciate.

Alert and protective

Most families require only a couple of warning barks, and an alert dog such as the German Shepherd will satisfy that need. This breed is protective of the family he lives in. With proper care, a German Shepherd will exhibit just enough aggressiveness to protect his family without being unpredictable to everyone that surrounds him.

Intelligent

German Shepherds are one of the most intelligent and most trainable breeds. They excel in different activities – they’re known to sniff drugs and strangers, and can identify gas leaks and underground mines. They’ve been used as guidance for the blind, in the military, and for search and rescue services.

Loyal

It’s a part of the German Shepherd personality to be loyal – the dog won’t think twice about sacrificing their lives for their human masters. They have this strong protective instinct and once the two of you become friends, it’s definitely going to be a lifelong friendship.

Obedient

Typical German Shepherd temperament includes obedience, which is why they can be easy to train. In fact, their obedience helps develop their cognitive abilities, and can go the extra mile for his loved ones. Trainings with regard to obedience also help them fight boredom and make them excited about what’s going to happen next.


Facts - Care

German Shepherds don’t need clipping or unusual grooming methods. They only need occasional baths; overbathing can irritate their skin because of oil depletion. Their ears and claws should be trimmed regularly.

Puppies wearing collars should preferably be given adjustable ones. A narrow collar may end up hurting his neck, and chain collars may be too heavy. Wide nylons are ideal as they are lightweight. He’ll scratch the collar at first, but soon, he’ll get used to it.

German Shepherd care further includes always having fresh water at all times. Like any other puppy, German shepherd puppies love to chew, so they should be given toys that are more durable due to their strong and powerful jaws.

Ideally, German Shepherd training must begin when the puppy is about 10 weeks old. Known for being an intelligent breed, German Shepherds can learn a lot of things even at a young age. Bear in mind that your tone of voice also matters in training. Talk to the puppy like a friend – this won’t spoil the dog but make him respect you instead.

For emergency cases involving the German Shepherd, stay calm, and if you can, administer first aid. If serious cases such as abdominal bloating plus restlessness and vomiting attempts, drowning, or poisoning take place, call the veterinarian immediately.


Facts - Grooming

German Shepherd grooming is surprisingly easy. It’s a breed that’s a “wash and wear” type, and doesn’t need a lot of maintenance compared to other breeds.

Appearance

German Shepherds are double-coated; they have this coarse and water-resistant outer coat and a wooly and heavy undercoat. This breed sheds heavily, especially in spring. Dog hair on furniture and fur clumps on their hair won’t be a problem so long as you comb their hair regularly; it can even serve as your bonding activity.

Now, when it comes to how to groom German Shepherd, all you need is to comb the hair for 15 minutes or even less as long as it’s done a couple of times a week. It won’t be hard to do as the dog tends to stand quietly and enjoy these combing sessions with you.

Size and Weight

Weight of males ranges between 30 to 40 kg, while the weight of females ranges between 22 to 32 kg. A German Shepherd will normally reach its physical maturity upon reaching 18 to 24 months.

You don’t have to worry a lot about your dog’s size and weight – so long as you feed them quality dog food and give them enough exercise, your German Shepherd will definitely reach his full potential.

Color

German Shepherds are versatile dogs, and you can see it in their appearance that can vary in coat length and color. German Shepherds come in colors such as black, blue, sable, liver and white, and combinations such as black & silver, black & cream, black & white and black & tan.

The dog’s outer coat must be as dense as possible, and composed of straight, hard and close lying hairs. Most popular colors are black, sable and black & tan. The dog’s final color will only be determined once the outer fur has developed. The color shouldn’t be a basis or reference to the dog’s health or fitness – a German Shepherd is a great dog regardless of the color.

Special Grooming Needs

As previously mentioned, German Shepherd dogs don’t need special German Shepherd grooming. They are naturally clean dogs despite the shedding.

The ears can also be checked weekly for signs of infection, irritation or wax build-up. Don’t use a cotton swab; it’s better to use a cotton ball with a solution approved by a veterinarian. Brush the dog’s teeth once a week to avoid bad breath and accumulation of tartar.


Facts - Health

The German Shepherd’s life expectancy is around 10 to 13 years. They are playful and active creatures so they should be allowed to run not only for their physical strength and mental condition but also for their immune system. However, they don’t need as much exercise compared to other large dogs – all they need are daily walks and strolls at the park.

German Shepherd health concerns are normal, but with proper monitoring of the dog’s diet, the dog can manage possible conditions such as hip dysplasia and arthritis.

Diet

German Shepherd nutrition principles are similar to any other healthy diet – it’s not just the volume, but the content of the food that matters. German Shepherd dogs require a diet that’s high in protein to support their muscle health, as well as fat for energy. The protein sources should preferably be animals rather than plants.

Vet Check-Ups

Your German Shepherd must have regular check-ups and monitoring so you’ll have an idea of the dog’s overall health. The trip can serve as quality time between you and your dog. Better yet, you’ll immediately see if there are any problems during its early stages, and does something about it before it gets serious and life-threatening.

A dog that’s properly bred, fed and loved will give you years of affection and love, and are less prone to health issues. As long as you provide enough (and the right kind of) food, adequate exercise and the love the dog deserves, your dog should do just fine.


Facts - History

Compared to today’s breeds, the German Shepherd breed is very young. The GSD, as its name suggests, originated in Germany during the late 1800s. It started through Captain Max Von Stephanitz who loved the qualities of his native German sheep-dog breeds such as strength, intelligence and ability. He first bought a dog named Hektor Linksrhein, and later on changed his name to Horand v Grafath. He together with Ernst Von Otto, Adolf Meyer, among others started the Verin_fur Deutsche Schaferhunder, and Horand v Grafath was the first German Shepherd.

Come the 19th century, dog breed fanciers started to modify the sheep dog breed that served as the modern GSD’s basis. Different attempts were made. Careful breeding was performed. Pedigrees were scrutinized, as the dogs themselves were, and von Stephanitz chose a dog that has a firm and proportionate body. This served as the foundation for the German Shepherd breed.

As years passed, the breed remained popular. Canine movie stars such as Strongheart and Rin Tin Tin were known during the 1920s, and in 1999, the breed’s anniversary was celebrated worldwide.
