9 Month old GSD, SUPER LOW ENERGY
 
I haven't been able to find anything on it. But does anyone have a shepherd that wants to sleep 90% of the day?? He has always been like this and never had much energy. I think it might be growing pains because he is almost 90lbs at 9 months. He also makes weird whiny noises when he is laying down. If anyone is familiar with this please let me know!!

dogs sleep a lot. my dog makes noise sometimes when he's laying down.

when out with your dog playing, training, walking how's his energy level?

Riley was very mellow and low energy. He did not whine a lot, but he would change positions and groan quite a bit.

He always wanted to go with me, but after just going to teo stores he would act very tired.

Every dog can be different. So if this is normal for him. The breeder breds dogs like this. The vet says everything is fine... then it should be ok...

While running around and playing his excitement and energy is much more, but nothing compared to my female GSD that is a couple months older. Training, he gets bored real quickly, as my female is as excited as ever to receive an award for completing a task. I don't know, I was just curious because I have never owned such a chill and relaxed GSD before. So I wanted to see if anyone else out there has a similar situation.

Thanks!

It sounds like he is very low drive. Not a bad thing, just the way he is. He may never have the interest and go that your other dog has.

Sounds like a couch potato. Want to trade GSDs? lol :D

Well guys, turns out my "low energy" GSD has severe hip dysplasia and elbow dysplasia. Which explains why he doesn't do much. Only 9 months old. Total hip replacement will be in June :/ but at least he will feel MUCH better!
