a NOTE ON sHAVING YOUR DOGS
Many pet parents believe that shaving their German Shepherds in summers will help them stay cooler. But this is not so. Shaving off all your pet’s fur leaves their skin unprotected from the elements. Without any fur to act as a shield, a dog’s skin is open to sunburn among other dangers. Instead, discuss a more specific summer grooming routine and design activities that will help your GSD stay cool. You can also visit your nearest HUFT Spa for a professional grooming session for your dog.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Are German Shepherds easy to train?
German Shepherd dogs are highly intelligent and obedient, making it easy to train them. As herd dogs and guard dogs, they were bred to follow instructions/commands and have a love for rules. It is quite natural for them to want to excel at tasks, observe their surroundings and keep an eye out for trouble.
Which is why they also need a lot of attention and physical and mental stimulation to be the best versions of themselves. Like any other dog, start this process when they are young.
For instance, start with basic commands such as Sit and Stay, use treats for positive reinforcement when they listen to a command and socialise them by letting them be around family/friends and other dogs.
Are German Shepherds good for first time parents?
If you have the time and energy to socialise them, then they are a great choice. But if you have a busy lifestyle and are looking for a dog that requires little training or grooming, then you might want to reconsider.
Are German Shepherds good family dogs?
Like any other dog, if socialised properly from a young age, German Shepherds can be a fantastic addition to your family, including children.
Can German Shepherds live in hot weather?
German Shepherd dogs have a high tolerance for cold weather. Having said that, GSDs are an adaptable breed and if acclimated, they can do well in hot weather too. Always make sure that your dog has access to cold water and shade.
How do I use a German Shepherd grooming brush/comb?
Comb in the direction of hair growth and away from the skin. Work on the coat in sections to make it easier. Remove tangles gently, do not pull on the fur too hard as it will hurt your dog.
If you are unable to detangle your pet’s fur, make an appointment for a dog grooming session, so a professional can tackle this in a way that will not hurt your pet.
How often should I bathe my German Shepherd?
During summers, you can bathe your GSD once every 2-4 weeks as required. Bathing your dog is an excellent way to bond with them and check for skin problems or lumps that may otherwise go unnoticed. It also depends on where you live and how much dirt your pet’s coat collects.
Practice a basic grooming routine to understand your dog’s coat better. In cities, due to pollution, a dog’s coat gets grimier much faster. So, a bath once in 15 days may be required. The type and length of your pet’s coat also plays a role here.
If the weather is not cloudy, the coat may not dry well after a bath at home. On such occasions, make an appointment at a pet spa where professional dryers are used to ensure the skin and coat are completely dry post bath. Damp coats can lead to infections and irritation.
