EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GERMAN SHEPHERDS

 

The German Shepherd is a popular breed of dog that is known for its loyalty and intelligence. The breed was originally developed in Germany in the late 19th century, and it quickly became one of the most popular breeds in the world. German Shepherds are a versatile breed that can be used for a variety of purposes, including obedience training, protection, and law enforcement. The breed is also well-suited for families, as they are affectionate and protective of children.

German Shepherds are typically large dogs, with males averaging around 100 pounds and females averaging around 80 pounds. They have a lifespan of 10-12 years, and their coat can be either short or long. The most important thing to remember when owning a German Shepherd is that they require a lot of exercise and socialization. Without these things, they can become bored and destructive. When properly cared for, however, they make loyal and loving companions.

German Shepherd Puppies Temperament

German Shepherds are one of the most popular breeds of dogs, and it’s easy to see why. These pups are intelligent, playful, and loyal companions. But German Shepherds are also working dogs, and they have a reputation for being serious and even aloof. They are natural guardians, and they will protect their families from any perceived threat. German Shepherds are also exceptionally trainable, and they excel in a variety of disciplines including obedience, agility, and tracking.

Despite their many talents, German Shepherds are not the right breed for everyone. They require consistent training and socialization, and they need plenty of exercise to stay happy and healthy. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance pet, a German Shepherd is probably not the right choice for you. But if you’re prepared to commit to training and exercise, you’ll find that a German Shepherd can be a loyal and loving friend for life.

German Shepherd Puppies Health Considerations

Though generally very healthy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 10 to 12 years — our German Shepherds for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our German Shepherd puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones.

German Shepherd puppies are at somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •    Hip Dysplasia
  •    Elbow Dysplasia
  •    Arthritis
  •    Ear Infections
  •    Degenerative Myelopathy
  •    Von Willebrand Disease

Perhaps the most well-known is hip dysplasia, a condition that causes the hip joint to develop abnormally. This can lead to pain and lameness, and eventually requiring surgery. German Shepherds are also at risk for elbow dysplasia, a similar condition that affects the elbow joint. Other common health problems include allergies, intestinal issues, and eye problems. With proper care and diet, however, German Shepherds can live long and healthy lives.

Finding a German Shepherd puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

German Shepherd Puppies Coat & Coat Care

German Shepherds are one of the most recognizable breeds, thanks to their distinctive black and tan coats. While German Shepherds are often considered to be low-maintenance when it comes to grooming, their coats do require some care and attention.

The most important thing to know about German Shepherd coat care is that the breed does not shed uniformly throughout the year. Instead, they “blow their coats” twice a year, shedding large amounts of fur over a period of several weeks. During this time, it’s important to brush your dog daily to help remove loose hair and prevent matting. After the shedding period has ended, you can reduce the frequency of brushing to once or twice a week.

In addition to regular brushing, German Shepherds also need to be bathed on occasion. This should be done using a mild shampoo designed specifically for dogs, as human shampoo can strip away the natural oils that protect your dog’s skin and coat. How often you need to bathe your German Shepherd will depend on factors such as how often they play outside and whether they have any allergies or skin sensitivities. Generally speaking, however, a once-monthly bath is sufficient for most dogs.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your German Shepherd’s coat healthy and looking its best.
