I would like to share the following with you but please keep in mind it is only my opinion.

Regarding missing, lost or stolen German Shepherds: I do not recommend offering a reward for returning a loved one that belongs to you. Placing a flyer showing that Your German Shepherd was stolen should be sufficient. If someone contacts you and demands a reward then you should get as much contact information from the Individual as possible. It is illegal in the USA and probably in other Countries for demanding a reward  to take place. Call the Police and give them the Contact Information that you have obtained and let them retrieve you’re your Loyal Companion.

This is only my opinion - Please use your judgement.

Ocassionaly an Owner has a need to depart with their German Shepherd Dog or Puppy. This is usually caused by a move or a new baby in the family. More often than not they will offer their German Shepherd Dog Free or their German Shepherd Puppy Free.

Who Should Wear a Medical ID?

That's a question we are asked each day at GSDsite.com and a question that you, at some point, may have asked yourself.  There are common misconceptions that by wearing a medical ID you are labeling yourself or bringing unwanted attention to your condition or diagnosis.  The truth is that medical Identification can be, and often times is, life saving. 

If you have been recently diagnosed with a medical condition, a quick diagnosis of your condition will lead to faster and more effective treatment.  Your medical ID bracelet or necklace will alert doctors, paramedics and school nurses of your medical history so that time is not wasted.

Who should wear a medical ID?  

If you’ve been diagnosed with a chronic condition, have food or drug allergies or take medications, then you should wear a medical ID.  Any of the following conditions may alter the treatment you might normally receive. If you are a caregiver you should also wear a medical ID to alert emergency personnel of your loved one who needs attention. Let your medical identification jewelry speak for you when you can’t.

Here is a short list of conditions and people who should wear a medical ID bracelet or medical ID necklace.  If we left anything out of this list, please bring that to our attention by commenting on this post.

  • Diabetes
  • PTSD
  • Heart Patients with Pacemakers, Heart Stents, Atrial Fibrillation, Mitral Valve Prolapse, Arrhythmia
  • Hypertension

 German Shepherd Dog Training Toys...more

The GSD's high intelligence, strong athletic physique and silky smooth movement have seen the breed excel at all kinds of duties.

German Shepherds are trained and considered invaluable in such jobs as seeing eye dogs, police work, search and rescue, herding, protection, bomb and drug detection and as guard dogs. They also relish activities which stimulate their acute senses such as tracking, agility, fly ball, endurance work, schutzhund and German Shepherd obedience training.

Dogs have their own set of behavioral problems. Lack of proper training methods may badly affect your dog's behavior and turn your beloved pet into a disobedient, aggressive or unruly dog. As a dog owner you should be aware of these problems and train your dog accordingly.

If your dog bites or tears up your furniture, this is not the dog’s fault. These are types of behavior problems that most dogs show signs of having and it’s up to you, the owner, to train your dog to know what is acceptable and what is not.

Aggression related dog behavior problems include biting, jumping, barking uncontrollably and not obeying commands.

Once a dog ages from a puppy to an adult, it will become much harder to train. Training should start from an early stage, so that these tendencies do not become dog behavior problems.

 Muzzle

When to muzzle your dog

Leather Adjustable Dog Muzzles for German shepherd, basket dog muzzle for gsd , best dog muzzle, training dog muzzle, walking dog muzzles, padded dog muzzle, large dog muzzle, dog with black muzzle, dog black muzzle, metal dog muzzle, types of dog muzzles, buy a dog muzzle, comfortable dog muzzle,  humane dog muzzles, dog muzzle to prevent, Hund einen Maulkorb, Hunde maulkörbe gsd, shepherds Hundemaulkörbe, police muzzle, Schutzhund muzzle, dog training muzzle, k9 muzzle

By and large, muzzles are used to keep a dog from biting or causing injury. There are two types of muzzles: nylon (also referred to as the "groomer's muzzle") and basket.

Nylon muzzles consist of a wide strip of nylon that surrounds the dog's own muzzle, and two nylon strips that attach behind the ears to hold it in place. The nylon muzzle keeps the mouth in an almost completely closed position. Since their design restricts dogs from panting, nylon muzzles should not be used in hot weather for more than very short periods.

The basket muzzle resembles a basket that fits over the dog's own muzzle, and is normally constructed of wire or heavy plastic. Unlike nylon, the basket muzzle allows a dog to open and close his mouth. However, a dog who is wearing a basket muzzle can still cause harm by jabbing his mouth (called "muzzle punching") at a person or another dog.

So when is muzzling appropriate? Some dogs snap when having nails clipped, being brushed, or being vaccinated. A nylon muzzle is a good idea with a dog who is likely to bite when being handled by a groomer or veterinarian. Muzzles may also be used during training sessions for behavior modification. For example, if a trainer is working with a dog who has handling issues, a muzzle is used in order to ensure the trainer's safety.

The brand I recommend has horizontal slats through which slices of hot dog or other food can be passed. The design is useful for classical conditioning--pairing something delightful (slices of hot dog) with something the dog does not necessarily love (being handled)--to modify behavior.

Regardless of which type of muzzle is used, the dog should be acclimated to it before use. This can easily be accomplished by pairing food with the muzzle. For the nylon muzzle, stick a small treat through the bottom and let the dog place his nose into the muzzle to take the treat. For the basket muzzle, place a treat into the basket and let the dog take it.

Repeat a few times, and as the dog becomes more comfortable, gradually begin to place the muzzle on the dog, using incremental steps. For example, dog takes treat, hold for five seconds, release; as dog becomes comfortable, dog takes treat, move muzzle back over dog's muzzle, release; next step, bring straps up behind ears, release; eventually, as dog becomes comfortable, attach straps, feed through muzzle, release.

Important: Muzzling an aggressive dog can be a good management solution in a particular situation, but a muzzle should not be used as a substitute for behavior modification.

 German Shepherd Toys

German Shepherd Toys

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.

 German Shepherd Beds and Crate Pads

Dog Beds

Have you ever thought about the benefits of giving your dog his own bed? Many people still have the idea that a dog bed is a luxury and isn’t really a necessity. This could not be further from the truth. People sleep in a bed not because it is a luxury but because it is a requirement. When you start thinking of it this way, you’ll see that your dog really deserves a dog bed. Here are just some of the many benefits you’ll see as a result of getting your dog set up with his own special place to lie down.

1. Protection While you may be trying to keep your home as clean as it possibly can be, it is hard to always get all of the little bits and pieces off of the floor and carpets. If you have children and other animals in your home it can at times seem virtually impossible! Think about all the crumbs and dirt that your dog may be lying on when he rests on the floor. This can be very uncomfortable to say the least. Dog beds, on the other hand, are easy to clean and maintain. Your dog is sure to get a better night’s sleep when he is sleeping on an area that is free of any debris.

2. Comfort level Any dog will feel more comfortable in his own bed as long as you put in the effort to find the right one. Dogs love to snuggle and it is important to find the right size that gives your dog enough room to move around a bit but also gives him the security of being in a closed area. When you are shopping around for dog beds you’ll have to imagine the area your dog covers when he is curled up in a sleeping position and get one that is slightly larger than that. This is the optimum size of bed that will give your dog as much comfort as possible.

3. His own place Many dog owners have reported that their dogs love a bed because it gives them a space of their own that no one else can enter. If there are two dogs in the same home each dog will take command of their own bed, in most cases, and call it their own. A dog can actually feel lost if it does not know its boundaries and understand that there is a place it can go that belongs only to him. Your dog probably does not own much in your home. His own bed will give him his own sense of dog ownership, which is important.

4. A healthy dog A dog bed will also benefit the health of your special friend. His body temperature will be more regulated on a bed, which will contribute to his overall health. As well, the mattresses found on these types of beds offer firm support for your dog’s back and limbs. You can expect to find your dog more relaxed after a better night’s sleep and generally happier. A dog bed should really be considered a necessity for any size of dog and any breed. You wouldn’t want to sleep on the floor every night so why should your dog be any different?

German Shepherd Dog Agility Training

Agility training and dog obstacle courses were shaped after a Steeplechase in England. The first debut was in the UK at Crufts in 1978, and has become the fasted growing dog sport among both spectators and competitors because it is fast and entertaining. Dogs, too, love the sport; it lets them run, jump, and climb, exercising many of the behavior they enjoy. The sport also allows the dogs to have close contact with a handler, giving them all the attention they want. Agility is a great way to help build confidence in shy dogs, but only if you are supportive and enthusiastic.

If you've never tried German Shepherd agility work, or as we like to call it "play", you're missing a lot of fun. Don't get me wrong, though, it is also a lot of hard work, but well worth it. Much like a combination Doggie Obstacle Course, agility training is comprised of multiple types of various obstacles that the dog must complete.

The dog sport of agility was originally developed by combining the sport of stadium jumping (with horses) with many of the different challenges that are unique to dogs.

The most important factor in this type of "work" is enthusiasm and positive reinforcement. Why should the dog cross the high walk or go through that collapsed tunnel? It is your job to convince your German Shepherd during agility training that it is okay to follow commands and that nothing will harm it by completing the agility obstacles.

Many benefits are available as a result of this type of GSD agility training. Not only does the German Shepherd get a lot of great exercise (as well as yourself), but other benefits such as socialization skills from being around other people and animals.

The agility trained German Shepherd learns body awareness skills - such as, its back feet are independent of the front which many dogs seem to be unaware of. German Shepherds acquire a new ability to accept challenges and stamina to follow through in many new situations.

One of the most important things is that your German Shepherd agility training teaches your dog to trust you as its leader. As a teacher you learn new ways to motivate your dog during dog training and new ways to get it to perform as you wish while going through the agility obstacles.

Beginning Agility Training can begin at the puppy level. It is best to remember, however, the ability levels of the growing puppy and not to put it in any situation that may result in any type of problem for it in later years. Remember those growing bones and joints even if the enthusiasm is abundant.

 German Shepherd Dog Whelping Supplies

The big day is fast approaching. You should have all of the supplies ready and waiting at least a week before the expected due date.

The whelping box is the single biggest item needed. It should provide enough room for the bitch to lay and stretch out comfortably without being so big that the puppies get 'lost.' For large breed dogs, it is also nice if a person can sit in the box with mom during labor and delivery and to play with the puppies later. The floor must be level and stable. The sides should be high enough to keep 4-week-old puppies in, but be hinged or have a door so the bitch can come and go. The sides may set inside the edges of the floor. This allows a blanket to be stretched tight over the floor and held in place by the sides. A safety rail is necessary around the entire perimeter. This allows the puppies to fit underneath in case the bitch lays down and they are in the way. It should be high and wide enough for a month-old puppy to fit under. The whelping box should be set up in a warm, quiet, safe location.

A heat lamp should be placed high enough that the bitch cannot contact it, but close enough to heat the area. It should only heat a corner of the whelping box, so if the puppies are too warm, they can move away from the heat source. The heat lamp light should be diffused with aluminum foil with holes poked in it with a needle. This protects the bulb from accidental contact and protects the puppies eyes from bright light.

Newspaper can be put in the whelping box during delivery. As it gets wet more layers are added. Once she is done whelping and is taken outside to relieve herself, the entire box is changed and dry paper put in with a blanket stretched tight over the top to give puppies traction.

Whelping supplies

Have large plastic garbage bags handy to place used newspaper, paper towels, and other garbage.

A laundry basket or box should be available to place puppies in while the rest of the litter is born. This protects them while the bitch paces and moves around during labor. A heating pad should be placed on the bottom with a fleece pad over it. (The puppies should NEVER be placed directly on heating pads, as they may be burned.) Another 1 or 2 towels should be placed over the top of the basket to keep the heat in. The fleece and the air in the basket should feel comfortably warm to your hand. If the puppies are moving around and crying, they are too cold or too hot. If they are bobbing their heads, searching, and crying, they are hungry. They should be put with mom as soon as possible to nurse. The puppies can be placed with the bitch between births to allow them to nurse and bond, and if necessary, be put back in the basket while the next sibling arrives.

A large stack of soft, clean towels should be handy to help clean off puppies if necessary. Large litters may require 2-3 dozen towels. White or light colored towels will show the color of any discharge or placenta. Have a laundry basket handy to throw them in as they are used. Wash as soon after birth as possible with detergent and bleach to minimize staining of the towels. An easy alternative is to use paper towel that can be discarded.

Other supplies to have on hand include the following:

  1. Sterile hemostats and blunt-end scissors to cut the umbilical cord, if necessary
  2. Alcohol and matches to sterilize the hemostats and scissors (dip the instrument in the alcohol, hold downward, light with a match - do not hold upward, as the alcohol (and fire) will go down your hand)
  3. Heavy sewing thread, dental floss, or suture (to tie umbilical cords if necessary)
  4. Lubricating (petroleum) jelly
  5. Several pairs of sterile surgical gloves
  6. Rubber pediatric bulb syringe or other suction devise to clear airways
  7. Surgical antiseptic scrub/iodine
  8. Tube feeder, syringe, bottle and nipple, and puppy milk replacer (such as Esbilac)
  9. Gram or ounce scale depending on average size of newborn puppy for your breed
  10. Stethoscope
  11. Nail polish to mark puppies for identification (puppies look remarkably similar and the best way to identify them is with marks)
  12. Thermometer – rectal to monitor the bitch's temperature
  13. Household thermometer to monitor the air temperature in the whelping box
  14. High-quality puppy food, cottage cheese, vanilla yogurt, and/or vanilla ice cream for the bitch
  15. Fresh water for the bitch
  16. Regular number for veterinary clinic and the emergency veterinary clinic number
  17. Numbers for family/friends/sitter to watch the children during delivery and, if necessary, to go to vet clinic
  18. Whelping books
  19. Vetwrap to wrap the tail of a long-haired bitch
  20. Flashlight with new batteries
  21. Clock or watch to time the birth
  22. Camera, film, and extra battery
  23. Something for you to do while waiting – cards, magazines, etc.
  24. Ink pen (and an extra) and note pad – mark each pup's arrival time, sex, weight, color, and markings (either natural markings or id mark you apply), and if placenta was expelled
  25. Make sure the phone cord reaches the whelping box or that the battery for the cordless phone is charged
  26. Cot for you to sleep
  27. Newspaper – to help line the floor of the whelping box
  28. Small Box or basket – to put the puppies in while another puppy is being delivered
  29. Hot water bottles – milk jugs, two-liter pop bottles, etc... You can use these to help keep puppies warm when they are in the small box away from mom
  30. Puppy Formula/Milk Replacer/Goats Milk – just in case there is a situation where mom cannot feed the pups
  31. Snacks for mom – yogurt, cottage cheese, goats milk, vanilla ice cream. It is a good idea to give her some high in calcium snacks AFTER she has had the first puppy. If there is a break in between puppies, sometimes a little calcium will help get labor started again
  32. Pen and paper – to record the puppy’s time of birth, weight, etc…
  33. Puppy Scale
  34. Vet and ER Vet Phone numbers –  You should have this info on hand in case a problem should arise where you need immediate vet assistance and your vet is not available (such as night time).

 German Shepherd Dog Life Jackets, Dog Life Vests, and Dog Backpacks

Why Use a Dog Life Jacket?

A number of dogs are afraid of the water or can not swim, and your dog may be among them. As a responsible dog owner, it is your duty to ensure your dog's safety when in or around water. Here you can read about the importance of a dog life jacket and understand why dogs must have one.

Reasons Why Dogs Need a Life Jacket:

  • Not all dogs can swim well in the water. Dogs that have low body fat could have a difficult time to stay afloat in water such as greyhounds and Doberman pinschers. Also, heavy dogs with short legs, such as English Bulldogs and Basset Hounds aren't built for swimming.

  • Older dogs and dogs that suffer from bone ailments can easily get tired and have difficulty in swimming. Geriatric and arthritic dogs will have a hard time paddling which may result to drowning.

  • No matter how well the dog can swim, it can drown due to the fast current and big waves. Even the strongest swimming dog may tire out and be unable to stay afloat.

 

The Importance of Dog Life Jackets:

To secure the dog’s safety while in the water, a life jacket is necessary. Dog life jacket keeps the pet afloat in a horizontal, swimming position. In this way, the dog will not be drowned even if it doesn’t paddle his feet. Geriatric or arthritic dog can now enjoy the water without compromising their safety.

Although some dogs may swim very well, owners should not still be very confident to let them swim alone. There is still a big possibility that they may drown if unsupervised. By getting a dog life jacket for the pet, the owners will be more at ease to let him swim alone, or leave him for awhile to do something important.

Available in a variety of fun colors and funky designs, our dog life vests and life jackets will keep the beloved pooches in style even they are out in the water. Owners can even match the swim wear to their dog life jackets. Find the one that will match the fashion taste or the one that will be perfect for the dog's personality. More importantly, with the bright colors available for this dog lifejacket, owners can easily spot the dog in the water. Now, pet owners will have peace of mind knowing that the dog will not be out of the sight anymore.

In addition, lifejacket for dogs can serve as a retrieving device. If the pet falls overboard or jumps to the dock, they can be safely rescued using the lifting handle of the jacket. The handle is also use to take the dog out of the water after swimming.

Truly, dog life jacket can save the life of the beloved pet. This is the best safety gear to give the dog. It makes swimming or boating fun and safe for both pet and owner. Now, dog owners can enjoy the company of the favorite four-pawed friend during swimming trips without having to compromise his safety in the cold and deep waters.
