German Shepherd Dog House

If you are getting a new dog for your family, you will have some initial questions to answer about how you are going to raise your pet. Is this going to be an inside dog or an outside dog? If you are raising an inside dog, you will have to deal with a whole host of problems like teaching him what furniture pieces he can and can't be on. But if you are raising an outdoor dog, you need to think about how you are going to train your new pet to deal with living outside.

The first thing you need to do is have a house for your dog to live in. Dogs need a safe and dry space that they can call their own. Inside this is often a bed or crate, but if they are outside, you should look more towards a house.

When selecting a dog house it should be big enough that your dog can stand up and move around inside. It doesn't need to be too much bigger than that, as dogs like their dens to be cozy and not too large.

When you are first bringing your new dog home, you will have to teach him that the dog house is his space. This could take some time and prodding. You should first let your new family member walk around the house and get to know it. He is going to want to do a lot of sniffing, getting to know the scents that are around your yard and the new house.

Next you want to get your dog to go inside the house. You shouldn't push your dog too much. Forcing him inside is just going to make the dog house seem like a frightening place to be. Instead, use positive reinforcement to get him inside. If your dog likes a particular type of treat, you may want to show him one of those treats and put it right by the door of his house.

Once you dog takes that treat you can push another one a little further into the house. Now he should be willing to peek his head inside to get the treat. At the same time he will be taking note of what he sees and realize it is not threatening.

You may have to repeat this a few times, moving treats further and further into the dog house until your dog realizes it is safe to be completely inside the house. You should spend some time with him at the house. When he is young he is looking to you as his keeper and the person who he should follow. The longer you stay by the house with him, the more he understands it's safe to be there and that he can get comfortable.

Speaking of getting comfortable, you should consider comforts for your dog while in his dog house to make it cozy. You can put a dog bed inside or at least a blanket and other items that will make it seem like a home.

If you keep this up while your dog is a puppy, by the time he is old enough to go outside for good, he will be comfortable living in his house.

 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 Crates and Pens

German Shepherd Crates and Pens

With the help of a crate you:can enjoy complete peace of mind when leaving you dog home alone, knowing that nothing can be soiled or destroyed and that he is comfortable, protected, and not developing any bad habits.

You can housebreak your dog more quickly by using the close confinement to encourage control, establish a regular routine for outdoor elimination, and to prevent "accidents" at night or when left alone.

You can effectively confine your dog at times when he may be underfoot (meals, family activities), unwelcome (guests, workmen etc.), over-exited or bothered by too much confusion or too many children, or ill;

You can travel with your dog without risk of the driver being dangerously distracted or the dog getting loose and hopelessly lost, and with the assurance that he can easily adapt to any strange surroundings as long as he has his familiar "security blanket" along'.

Your dog:can enjoy the privacy and security of a "den" of his own to which he can retreat when tired, stressed, or ill;

You can avoid much of the fear/confusion/punishment caused by your reaction to problem behavior;can more easily learn to control his bowels and to associate elimination only with the outdoors or other designated location.

You can be spared the loneliness and frustration of having to be isolated (basement, garage, outside) from comfortable indoor surroundings when being restricted or left alone.

You can be conveniently included in family outings, visits, and trips instead of being left behind alone at home or in a boarding kennel.

Being prepared can even make the difference between life and death.

FIRST AID KIT

Blanket (the compact thermal blanket works well; uses include keeping an injured animal from going into shock)

Put a drop in your water bottle and in their water. To help prevent travel sickness, a common dosage is four drops in the mouth about ten hours before the trip, repeating every four hours as needed. For stressed or injured animals, rub a drop on their ear or put a drop on the towel in their crate or carrier. Flower essences can be used along with conventional medicine.
