I know that all dog's teeth fall out as puppies. I have a male 5 month old gsd about 55 pounds and just after turning 5 months his 2 first canine/ fang teeth just fell out. (other 2 are wobbly). Is he behind in teething or canine teeth fall out at that time?

Usually 3-4 months ending around 5 months. The adult teeth push the baby teeth out, so you want to be sure the new teeth are coming through and nothing is blocking them. If the adult tooth is visible and the baby tooth hasn’t fallen out, then it may need pulling. My older dog had baby teeth pulled around 5 months, but afterwards, I wished I had waited. My younger one continued getting new teeth until 6 months and I’m glad I didn’t rush to have them pulled.
