8 tips to care your German shepherd dog


1> Keep your shepherd's weight down. Overweight dogs will have more health problems, including heart trouble and arthritis.

2> Learn what health problems are associated with this breed: Von Willebrand's disease (a blood disorder), glaucoma, torsion (stomach bloat, a very serious emergency), cataracts, calcium gout, chronic pancreatitis, hip and elbow dysplasia, epilepsy, hemophilia, slipped discs and retinal atrophy.

3> Brush your German shepherd daily if possible. This breed sheds year-round and heavily twice a year when the undercoat comes out.

4>Bathe the dog infrequently; shepherds don't require special grooming and can be washed at home.

5> Make sure to trim this dog's nails regularly - every two weeks - to prevent foot problems.

6> Remember that German shepherds are eager to please and very intelligent. You must be consistent and firm while training them.

7> Keep your shepherd indoors or out. Remember that she'll be much happier indoors with the family, since these dogs prefer to be with their pack.

8> Be prepared to enjoy a good 10 to 13 years with your shepherd, as this is the average life expectancy for a German shepherd.
