A German Shepherd Puppy Is Highly Impressionable

Mar 3, 2008
Please think carefully before adding a German Shepherd puppy into your life. These dogs need attention, finical support and training from day one. All German Shepherd puppies will make a mess of your home, so get used to it. It takes time to teach a German Shepherd puppy housetraining. You can make any training easier with sensible German Shepherd puppy names.

German Shepherd puppies are smarter than you are, more loyal than you are and better looking than you are. No wonder you are thinking of getting one - they bring out the best in you. However, before bringing home a German Shepherd puppy, you need to be aware of the incredible change this will make to your life. By being aware of this German Shepherd puppy information, you will know whether another kind of pet or another breed of dog will be right for you.

German Shepherd puppies look a bit different from adults. Their ears are floppy instead of pointed, but they will naturally stand up as the puppy ages. Most German Shepherd puppies change color as they get older, but nothing so dramatic as changing from jet black to snowy white. German Shepherd puppies want to please you, want to have fun and want you to be the center of their world.

German Shepherd puppies are very boisterous and do not know their own strength. You need to let them know right away what is acceptable and what is not. A hard stare, a frown, a sharp "No!" is enough to get the puppy's attention. Never hit your German Shepherd puppy. That will make any dog terrified of people. Dogs bite more out of fear than out of viciousness.

If you live with a family, the whole family needs to use the same commands with the German Shepherd puppy. For example, if Mom and Dad will not allow the puppy on the couch but the kids will, this will result in a really confused German Shepherd. Although highly intelligent, they are always smart enough to slink off of the couch whenever the parents get home. Decide on rules like this and post them where all the family members can see them before the German Shepherd puppy comes home.

In time, lots of patience, daily handling and attention, your German Shepherd puppy will be a canine ambassador. Your friends, neighbors and even total strangers will appreciate you for taking the time and responsibility to train your dog well. You can help the training process along by not only giving your German Shepherd puppy a sensible name, but getting the puppy spayed or neutered. Mentally, they stay like puppies and are comfortable letting you make the big decisions. They also avoid a lot of health problems this way.

Remember that German Shepherd puppies trying to learn your commands is a lot like you being suddenly transplanted to a different country where everyone speaks a different language from you and have completely different customs. Never be afraid or ashamed to ask a professional dog trainer or your vet for help in communicating with your German Shepherd. Your puppy is ready to listen.
