Taking care of a German Shepherd
A German Shepherd’s coat can be a mixture of black, fawn and gold, however, the final colour of its coat is only revealed after the puppy's coat has shed and the full adult coat has grown. Since they shed all year round, you can help them maintain their coat with regular brushing.
German Shepherd puppies and adolescents should exercise moderately: a few walks, a game of fetch, or playing with another dog will keep them fit and healthy. An adult German Shepherd’s exercise needs will depend on their energy level. Daily walks and the occasional run in a safe and enclosed environment will help this dog breed stay happy and healthy.
When choosing food for your German Shepherd, select food appropriate to your dog’s age and life stage. To help avoid them becoming overweight, ensure that you follow the recommended feeding guides on the food appropriate to your pet's size. A joint supplement can make a good addition, as German Shepherds can develop arthritis.
