Do German Shepherds shed a lot?
German Shepherds have a long, beautiful, and thick coat and tend to shed more in the Spring and Autumn as the weather changes.
And although they tend to shed more than other dogs, there are a few tips to manage things and keep your house nice and clean.
Brush your dog regularly throughout the week, bathe them regularly, and feed them healthy, nutritious food, which keeps their hair follicles strong. (Stress can even contribute to how much your dog sheds too!)
Ultimately, the best way to reduce any shedding is to keep your best friend happy, healthy, and clean.
Do German Shepherds smell?
All dogs have some amount of “dog scent” and German Shepherd retrievers are no exception.
They have very thick, double fur that’s designed to be water resistant and also have oils on their skin for swimming, which can give them their own smell.
But fortunately, it doesn’t mean they smell like skunks and you can easily combat most smells.
Regularly wash them to keep their fur and skin healthy, clean, and fresh. (Because of their thick coat, it’s often the dirt or bacteria caught inside that cause any strong smells.) Also, keep their bedding clean and regularly brush their teeth.
Also, the more active your dog, the more often you should wash them to keep them clean and healthy and prevent any odors from building.
Do German Shepherds bite?
German Shepherds are a very tender dog breed that rarely bite and are known to be friendly and caring with everyone they meet.
They’re also famous for their incredibly soft mouth grip — check out how they can actually hold a raw egg in their mouth and carry it around without breaking it?
Do German Shepherds bark a lot?
German Shepherd retrievers are relatively quiet compared to other dogs and usually bark to show their loyalty to their owners. While they might bark at strangers, it’s only to let their owners know someone is approaching them.
If you do get a somewhat-anxious or bark-happy golden, you can easily train them so they only speak up when you want them to.
How do German Shepherds behave?
With neither an overly aggressive or timid temperament, their innate patience makes them a great match for kids of any age and families of any size.
They rarely cause trouble in the house (like tearing apart furniture or shoes), which is why they’re well-known as a great family dog.
How big do German Shepherds get?
- Males average 23 – 24 inches tall and weigh between 65 – 75 pounds.
- Females average 21.5 – 22.5 inches tall and weigh between 55 – 65 pounds.
Are German Shepherds easy to train?
German Shepherds are the fourth smartest dog breed around and are one of the most common breeds for therapy and guide dogs and even search-and-rescue teams.
With a history of hunting and retrieving game, German Shepherds listen to direction and are a great choice for those who want to teach a dog to do things other breeds can’t.
Are males or females better?
Fortunately, whether you pick a male or female, german shepherds are equally loving, active, playful, loyal, and smart.
The only real differences are in appearance and maturity:
Males tend to be taller and heavier than females. Males also have broader heads, thicker “manes,” and longer coats while females have more narrow heads and noses.
