 German Shepherd Dog Foot and Paw Care

Top 10 Paw Care Tips For Dogs From GSDsite.com

Your dog’s feet sure are made for walking, but did you know they are also made for protecting? Pads provide extra cushioning to help protect bones and joints from shock, provide insulation against extreme weather, aid walking on rough ground and help protect tissue deep within the paw. With all that work to do, it’s no wonder your pooch’s paws often take a bit of a beating.

Keep a spring in your pet’s step with our top 10 paw care tips:

Pamper With Pedicures: Your dog's nails should just about touch the ground when she walks. If her nails are clicking or getting snagged on the floor, it's time for a pedicure.Snip and Trim: Trim paw hair regularly to avoid painful matting. Simply comb hair out, especially from between the toes, and trim even with the pads.

Clean In Between: Foreign objects can become lodged in your dog’s pads. Check regularly between toes for foxtails, pebbles, small bits of broken glass and other debris. These pesky items can usually be removed with a pair of tweezers.

Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize: A dog’s pads can become cracked and dry. GSDsite has good pad moisturizers and use as directed. Avoid human hand moisturizer, as this can soften the pads and lead to injury.

Deep Paw Massage: Similar to giving a human hand massage, a paw massage will relax your dog and promote better circulation. Start by rubbing between the pads on the bottom of the paw, and then rub between each toe. Your dog will be forever grateful for the extra TLC!

Slow and Steady: If you’re about to begin a new exercise program with your dog, start off slow. Paws may become sensitive, chaffed or cracked, particularly when starting your dog out on hikes and runs.

Apply First Aid: It's not unusual for dogs to suffer cuts or other wounds from accidentally stepping on glass, debris or other objects. Wounds that are smaller than a half inch in diameter can be cleaned with an antibacterial wash and wrapped with a light bandage. For deeper paw cuts, see the vet for treatment.

Summertime Sores: Imagine stepping barefoot onto hot pavement. Ouch! It is important to remember your dog’s paws feel heat extremes, too. To prevent burns and blisters, avoid walking your dog on hot pavement or sand. Signs include blisters, loose flaps of skin and red, ulcerated patches. For minor burns, apply antibacterial wash and cover the paw with a loose bandage. For serious burns, visit your vet immediately.

Wintertime Blues: Winter is hard on everyone’s skin, even your dog’s! Bitter cold can cause chapping and cracking. Rock salt and chemical ice melters can cause sores, infection and blistering. Toxic chemicals can also be ingested by your dog when he licks his paws. After outdoor walks, wash your dog’s paws in warm water to rinse away salt and chemicals. You may wish to apply Vaseline, a great salt barrier, to the foot pads before each walk.

Practice Prevention: To reduce the risk of injury, keep your home and yard clear of pointy bits and pieces. Be conscious to avoid hazards such as broken glass and other debris when walking your dog. And keep this simple tip in mind—if you wouldn’t like to walk on it barefoot, neither will your dog!

 German Shepherd Dog Ramps and Stairs

Dog Ramps and Dog Steps

Don’t risk injury to your Dog!

Use of dog ramps or pet steps can help your dog when he has difficulty jumping into a vehicle or onto the furniture. When selecting the pet ramp or steps that best fits your situation, consider where it will be used, how high it will need to reach, and whether you want it to be portable. You may also have a preference as to the type of material used in its construction.

German Shepherd Dogs are very nice and social animals. They like being in the center of attention and give all their love to their master. Yet, they need to receive the same affection and care back. In order to show your furry friend how much you love him and care about him you should dedicate some time only for him. Dogs love to play games, so you should spend some times playing specific games with your companion.

There are several reasons why you should play with your German Shepherd dog. The first one is because you will strengthen your relationship even more and will become better friends. Dogs, just as children, like to play a lot. Thus, if you want to gain their friendship you should play with them until they get tired.

Also, by playing specific games you can train your German Shepherd dog, without one or the other being aware of this. By making your dog play by some specific rules you teach him that you are the master and the he should always listen to you. If your German Shepherd dog is shy or lacks confidence in your or even in himself, games are very efficient when you want to make him go out of his shell. He will become more friendly and more active once you will play together for several times.

For a hyperactive German Shepherd dog, games are the right way to get rid of all that energy, while for fat dogs it will be a very good way of burning some of the fats he has had for meal. Do not forget that dogs are predators by birth, so they can become aggressive if they do not burn all that energy. Games which simulate some kind of fights or in which they get to be the predators will exhaust these feared instincts. Thus you diminish significantly the risk of being attacked by your own dog.

You can play with your German Shepherd dog after he has done a good thing, something you are proud of. He will perceive the time you give him as a strong reward for what he did and he will probably try to do that again, just to impress you and make you play more with him.

German Shepherd Dogs have similar needs to those of children, so whenever you have the time, play with your dog! You have a lot of reasons to do that!

German Shepherd Dogs need exercise and training constantly. The best method of reward is play rewards using German Shepherd Dog training toys and Schutzhund Toys, dog Balls and dog Tugs.
