I am a long-time German Shepherd Dog (GSD) owner and can tell you that they are one of the most intelligent, yet territorial dog breeds in the world. As such, they have been placed on the "naughty list" by most insurance companies. This is something to keep in mind if you are considering adopting one. Back to your question, I believe that GSDs are born with a territorial instinct; however, their level of assertiveness and aggressiveness really depends on the environment in which they were raised. Eight months seems to be the age when GSDs become more aware of their surroundings and start to develop a "that's mine" attitude. It's best to introduce the breed to strangers early on, so that they do not develop a fear or become too aggressive. Set boundaries and make sure to stick to them. GSDs know how to problem solve. They also know how to get the upper hand. Good luck!
From 7 months to a year...
A German Shepherd dog doesnt become aggresive with age. They only become aggresive for these reasons 1. they were abused 2. They were not trained 3. They were trained badly 4. They have pups and they can also be aggresive if they are old, scared, or if you agitated one
German Shepherd can live up to 12-14 years.
After the age of seven you should never breed her.
10 weeks is the best age to buy
German Shepherd usually slow down rapid growth at 6 months and slow down growing at height 8 - 8.5 months of age, and at nearly 9 months when German Shepherd gets their undercoat and following after when head gets wider and body chest gets wider; and continues to mature and becoming adult looking German Shepherd. German Shepherd don't reach their full adult size till they are 14 months of age; however, they get muscular at 18++ months of age, fully at the peak 36 months of age.
They live on average 12 to 15 years.
Dogs physically mature over 15 months of age
A female shouldn't breed on her first ever cycle.
At one and a half years she should be fully grown.
400 to 800 depending on age and breed pureness
A 2 week old German Shepherd puppy should be eating mother's milk. DO NOT REMOVE A DOG THIS AGE FROM THE MOTHER. If the mother is unavailable, consult with a vet immediately.
I would stop by age 6 by then they are tired of having babies, and it gets harder on them
Once he/she is sexually mature. The first cycle should be missed though.
The average is 5-7 years when it is half way through its life.
German Shepherd's are considered adults at just one year of age, though they usually take longer to mature mentally.
Depends on their age...to make them stronger feed them "royal canin junior for German shepards"
A male at that age should be: 22.9kg A female at that age should be: 20.0kg
Most large breed dogs, like German Shepherds, finish growing somewhere between one and one-and-a-half years of age.
You should never breed a German Shepherd until the are AT LEAST two years of age and have been certified by the OFA to be clear of hip and elbow dysplasia.
All dog breeds open their eyes and ears near two weeks of age.
Every month until 6 months of age and then every 3 months , hope this helps
This is possible. But mainly not till 6 to 12 months of age will you have to start to worry much
Your vet can determine the dog's age by looking at their teeth, size and behavior, but they won't be able to give you an exact age.
