Should a 15 year old have responsibility for a German shepherd?
yes if he or she is good with animals and know how to look after them
They should only have two maximum.
before one year old
A lot over the year... They cost around 39 pounds a month plus vet bills... It's a big responsibility.
They should be at least one year old before you start breeding with them.
It is seriously said that a German Shepherd should only have two litters a year but any dog should only be bred three times in their life. The more litters a dog has, the less healthy she will be. People who have excessively bred their dog have failed to notice that the pups fade in healthiness.
A german shepherd should have at least 30 minutes of heavy exercise a day. A walk doesn't count as heavy so 45 to 60 minutes a day, a younger one (7 months to a year) will need more in order to tire them out.
If the dog is healthy take him/her to the vet once a year for shots and a annual check up and that should be ok
about 1 year after its birth
2-6 is the average amount for a Shepherd
German Shepherd sheds more than Labrador. Labrador sheds seasonally and its coat is short and thick. German Shepherd sheds throughout the year and sheds heavily during spring and fall. Its has a moderately long and dense coat.
From 7 months to a year...
It was natural and totally normal. You can't punish it for something it hasn;tt been stopped to do.
A few times a year when the bitch comes into season.
Dry puppy food.
What if your 1 year old 85 pound German shepherd just ate a 5 mg ambian pill What should you do Thanks?
First calm the dog then quickly rush to the vet.
yes but it will be very hard
every 6 months
German Shepherd's are considered adults at just one year of age, though they usually take longer to mature mentally.
400g a day and you do the maths, a lot.
Ours has gone into heat/season 3 times in the past year.
In general German Shepherds are a one owner type of dog. However, if your German Shepherd gets along well with other dogs and appears docile then put your German Shepherd on a leash and let the new pup have the freedom, but be sure to keep the pup away from your dog. Watch the reactions from your German Shepherd. You could try this with a friends dog coming into your home to see how your… Read More
At least once each year, depen on how you care for them and depen on the breed too.
It is merely because it is a long hair. And has less waterproof coat.
By the age of two years the breed is classed as an adult so depending on sex and coat length as well as structure 35 - 40 kg is correct for the Shepherd.
Yes, it is possible to train a 4 years old German Shepherd. In fact, it is best to train a puppy as soon as possible.
If he is exercised on hard ground, yes.
You have a Five year old black lab German shepherd mix you are getting another dog what breed of dog should you get or stay away from?
Stay away from negative dogs towards others such as Presa Canaria's and Cane Corso's and maybe Akita's and Rotweilers but another Lab or Shepherd or even a mix would work well :)
A German Shepherd is as intelligent as a ten year old and is the third most intelligent breed. The average GSD can learn up to two hundred words.
wehn they are 7-15 months old. mine is a year and stopped teethingbut still chews for fun
No. Not as a sole responsibility
Take it to the vet immediately. It is probably in a lot of pain and in need of medical attention that should be provided by a professional And if it is more than a cut or simple injury it has to be treated with medicine that is found in a vet clinic.
The Gosselins had dogs for a brief time in 2009. The German Shepherd pups were with the family for a short time before being returned to the breeder. The pair of German shepherd puppies that were named Shoka and Nala by Kate Gosselin. Over a year later one of the pups returned to live with Kate Gosselin and the children.
They generally come into season every six to seven months so twice a year on average.
Don't add another German Shepard. Male or female,they will fight. Maybe add a smaller dog.
At 4 years it's already fully grown and is unlikely to get any taller. Fatter perhaps, but not taller.
That's very difficult to calculate, or even estimate how many German Shepherds there actually are. German Shepherd Dogs are the third most popular breed in the United States. In 2004, the AKC registered 46,054 German Shepherd puppies. If we assume that is a typical number for any year in the last decade, and an average life expectancy of 11 years, we can estimate there are: 11 x 46,054 AKC registered German Shepherds in the U.S… Read More
I need some further information on scoorpion mark and where it is . What do I look for ? It is a real dark mark on the back of the tongue. My dog has one on the rear right side of her tongue. Hitler would not own a German shepherd that did not have this mark. Around nine months old it will start to appear and at a year it is very dark.
After at least a year. Unlike other dogs, these dogs need to be fully developed before under going being 'fixed'.
Why would a 13 year old German Shepherd have problems with poop just sliding out of her like she doesn't even realize it is happening?
There are several possibilities, but a vet should be consulted for a diagnosis. It is possible it is from degenerative myelitis, a disease that effects GSDs and their ability to use their hind quarters.
A German Shepherd is considered an adult when they're 1 year old. They normally don't mature til they're about 3 years old. I'm an expert on German Shepherds. I've loved them since I was 8 years old. I don't own one, but I will next summer. They are high maintenence dogs. They have high standards. You need to be able to know how to take care of these dogs. They need a soft hand when… Read More
If the 17 year old chooses to keep her baby than yeah I feel its his responsibility to support her and their baby. I believe its both parties responsibility. This is why no one should play with fire until they are adults and ready for kids and the consiquences. Having children is adult responsibility.
She should come into heat within one year and a half.
ofcourse not...never before 6 months...and its more preferable that u wait till 1 year old.
One reason is so they can learn responsibility.
At this time in the puppy's life he becomes an adult and your male German shepherd will become sggressive unless you neuter him, he will be aggressive because of the urge to mate and way to many puppies are born a year and most of them die so please don't over breed
Definitely. Do not assume their skeletons are fully developed before they are a year old. Some dogs may actually take a little longer than a year.
yes i currently have a 2 year old male purebred german shepherd whose ears are flopped over, he is still a great dog and has no medical problems and is currently being k9 trained
How many year for king david between shepherd and king?
A female must be sexually mature so about 18months of age and must be at the peak of her cycle and ready to mate.
On their second or even third heat is best, as they have fully developed and complications are less likely. However by not spaying your B*tch within the first year her chances of womb cancer are increased. Also make sure you have a spare two grand of money should complications during pregnancy arise and she needs immediate attention from a vet.
