German Shepard Puppy

By Ian Vanderpute

There is nothing cuter than a puppy but have you considered the type of puppy that you want gamboling around in your home? With so many dog breeds to be found you should see which of these dogs will be very faithful to you. Well this question is easy to answer. The German Shepard puppy can be trained to be not just a companion but to also for the various tasks that you may have.

Choosing a German Shepherd can be a tricky task because you need to look at the puppies carefully so as to ensure that there are no health problems as hereditary breeding is known to cause health issues in German Shepherds. Some health issues that affect these puppies are hip and elbow dysplasia, digestive problems, epilepsy, chronic eczema, dwarfism, flea allergies and keratitis. The best way to ensure that you are buying a puppy that is free from any kind of medical problems is by choosing to buy from a breeder who would be able to provide you with a certificate that assures you of your puppy’s health.

Since German Shepherd puppies are very friendly and very eager to learn new things, care must be taken to ensure proper training for them so that you have a well trained and obedient German Shepherd dog in the long run. The best way to ensure that your puppy is absorbing all what you are teaching it is by training it outdoors. This is also a method to maintain a puppy’s health.

While it is a fact that puppies enjoy going out for walks and playing outside, this is especially true in case of German Shepherd puppies. The walks can be used as a method to train your puppy to have good social behavior in the company of strangers. There is one other important thing that needs to be taken into consideration while training your puppy.

This thing is that a German Shepherd is a very intelligent dog. But if there is no activity that is currently occupying the puppy, then it can turn into a destructive puppy. Correct training and proper handling are the only methods to reduce this destructive nature. It should be ensured that your puppy is being trained with a lot of patience, firm but gentle handling and lots of affection.

When you are thinking about the grooming which is entailed with this breed of dog you will find a dog type that is relatively easy to groom. You will need to brush out the coat of the German Shepard puppy on a daily basis. Other than this your puppy will need to have a bath only about twice a year. More than this amount will cause your puppy’s skin to loose its protective skin oil.

Even though there are many different breeds of puppies that you can think about getting, the German Shepard puppy is one who will provide you with loyalty and companionship all through its life.
