  1. Aggression (the good, the bad & the ugly)
    Hi, I’m a new member here and I have a serious problem and I need urgent advice. I have a 7 year old non-spayed female German Shepherd who I’ve raised since she was 7 weeks old and has killed 2 small dogs. As ironic as it sounds, she was raised with a Maltese and a Yorkshire Terrier. They were...
  2. Diet & Nutrition
    I have a 15 week old female. When she was 9 weeks she had a UTI and after urine analysis they discovered she had crystals. They told me she would have to be on Royal Canin Urinary SO for the rest of her life. For the past 3 days she has been refusing to eat her food. She is happy and still...
  3. General Information
    Hi, a few days back I have just asked for suggestions about GSD vs. Bulldog. Most of the people recommended me GSD. Yes! its a perfect dog for the families as we own it from the past 7 years. But unfortunately its passed away, and we are planning to own another dog. But we are still little...
  4. Health Issues
    My almost 7 month old female German Shepherd has this pouch like area behind where she pees noticed today. She started dripping pee inside (smells like urine and yellow). She’s acting pretty lovingly and tired but still eating, drinking, acting mostly normal. Looking to see if anyone knows...
  5. Health Issues
    Due to unfortunate circumstances I have found myself with a 5 week old puppy whom i love dearly. He can't go back to his litter as much as I would prefer he stay to get socialized. I have already begun talking to a trainer to get on top of socializing him as best as we can. I'm concerned about...
  6. Health Issues
    My dog, Zeus, has had persistent pink lips the past three weeks. It came on suddenly and is spreading quick. I reached out to his vet during week 1 of this issue and they said it was a plastic allergy and to swap his bowls to stainless steel. I did that but it’s still not going away! It also...
  7. Training Our Puppy (basic)
    Hi all, We have a 6 month old german shepherd puppy. Ever since she was around 4 months old she started barking in the evenings and it's getting worse as she gets older. During the day she is fine, but once it starts getting dark at night, she starts guarding the windows and barks at literally...
  8. Choosing A Breeder
    Hi there! I’ve found a puppy that I’m quite interested in. She would be $1900. I have a photo of her and her mom, and have asked for one of the dad. I know there are certain things I should look out for in this process, but I’d love to know what you guys think of this particular situation...

  10. General Puppy Stuff
    We have a deposit down for a stock coat, dark sable. The breeder sent some pics at 4 weeks and thinks they might be long coats. Would you give me your opinion on these 4 week pics?
  11. Feeding Our Puppy
    Hello, I have a 5 month old female german shepherd that weighs 60 pounds. From when I got her she has not been very interested in her food. She will eat sometimes with some coaxing but she doesn’t really care about it. I do not think she’s sick as she has an appetite and will eat treats when...
  12. Choosing A Breeder
    Hello, I am going through the process of moving to Slovakia and once I am settled I would like to put more effort into looking for a reputable breeder to get my dog from. Overall the dog that I get would most likely be just a family dog as I have no experience in IPO or Schutzhund. Names of...
  13. B.A.R.F./Raw Feeding
    Wud up to all, My 15 months old GSD is only eating once a day. He’s on a raw diet of chicken quarters, beef liver, chicken heart, ground beef and chicken feet. When I first started the raw diet he ate twice a day now he just sniffs the food in the morning and walks away. He will eat about 1.5...
  14. Health Issues
    Hi guys, First time posting here so will try get straight to the point. I came home two days ago to find my 1 1/2 yr old GSD with a swollen eye socket and right eye unable to completely open. Also, when he gets excited to play with toys he will attempt to bite onto them but yelp in pain and...
  15. General Behavior
    I have a 1 year old female who I don’t have many problems with. One thing I’ve noticed recently is that she’s constantly crying or whining. They’re not long burst but she’s been doing a lot more recently and I’m having trouble getting her to stop. She’s also a bit aggressive at times. She has a...
  16. Health Issues
    my German Shepard mix might have pannus is what my regular vet said. So I’ll be seeing an ophthalmologist but what do you guys think? I really hope she doesn’t
  17. Health Issues
    Hi, my poor dog has me and 2 different vets stymied. Chester is about 18 months old, we got him at about 8 weeks from a shelter and he was already neutered, which I have read, may cause him to be a little taller than usual. He is allowed to free feed and is fed Taste of the Wild dog food. I...
