The German Shepherd is one of the world’s most instantly recognisable dog breeds. High-energy, intelligent, good-looking and incredibly loyal, German Shepherd dogs (or GSDs) excel at almost anything that they are trained to do.
Originally bred for herding and military assistance, they are now a household favourite and a top choice for K-9 units, search and rescue operations and even films.
A German Shepherd dog is usually well-built with a square head, long muzzle, slightly angled legs, erect ears and long bushy tail. Their coats have a distinct, rich colour such as black, tan, a combination of both or even shades of red.
You might think that German Shepherds usually keep to themselves or take time to befriend strangers, which makes them seem aloof or formidable. But ask any pet parent and they will tell you—once a German Shepherd dog decides to like you, he/she will be your partner for life and you best be prepared for all the goofy antics that follow.
So, whether you have a GSD in your home or are planning to welcome one, here are all the German Shepherd essentials to tick off your checklist.

FOOD FOR YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD

German Shepherd dogs are not usually voracious eatersb> but they do enjoy tasty dog treats once in a while. You can opt for a meaty diet which also includes vegetables and nutrients that are formulated to meet their unique nutritional needs.
We recommend puppy varieties from Farmina, Taste of the Wild, Acana and Royal Canin. Soaking kibble in water helps to soften it and makes it easier for pups to eat.
Remember that pups who are younger than three and a half months old should be started off with puppy starter varieties from Royal Canin or Arden Grange.
Adult German Shepherds enjoy options from Royal Canin, Taste of the Wild, Farmina and Acana.
Always remember to feed your German Shepherd puppy or dog the appropriate quantities and choose a dog bowl accordingly, so as not to underfeed or overfeed them. Refer to the food packaging or consult your vet, before introducing any new dog treats or making any dietary changes.

PLAY

WITH YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD

banner
Like most high-energy dogs, German Shepherds love expressing themselves through play. They also have strong hunting instincts, thanks to their military history, so it is normal to see them chase after squirrels or smaller animals in the backyard.
Engage them in a game of tug or fetch with German Shepherd toys such as Better Than Basics Dog Rope Toy and KONG Extreme Chew Dog Toy for strong pullers. These not only keep them entertained but also scrape off plaque and tartar as they chew on them, thus aiding in dental health.
Due to monsoons or lockdown restrictions, if your GSD is unable to go out to play, it could lead to boredom or anxiety. Introduce them to interactive toys like the HUFT Curious Canine Snuffle Mat or Nina Ottosson Outward Hound Hide N’ Slide dog toy which keeps them busy and their minds sharp, even if they are indoors.
German Shepherd dogs have a thick coat, so keep an eye out for heatstroke or dehydration after play and when indoors, offer them a cool environment and a roomy lounger bed from HUFT X Disney to relax in.

GROOM YOUR GERMAN SHEPHERD

Grooming your German Shepherd dog not only helps with their blood circulation but also gives you a great opportunity to bond with your furbaby. You can check them for ticks or fleas and any abnormalities that might otherwise go unnoticed.
Use a German Shepherd grooming brush like the HUFT Silicon Pet Grooming Brush to dislodge shed fur from the coat and the HUFT Deshedder with Rake to work through your German Shepherd’s undercoat.
When it comes to bathing, the Isle of Dogs Everyday Silky Coating Dog Shampoo and Conditioner work well.
You can also use the non-toxic Isle of Dogs Replascent Spray on your dog’s coat, at home or in your car to keep them smelling fresh.
