German Shepherd's Health Insurance

German Shepherds were originally bred to herd sheep in Germany and they date back to 1899 - making them one of the newer breeds of dogs in existence. They are very strong, intelligent and have very high abilities so they are still used today for working purposes, particularly by the police force. They are a very loyal and loving dog to their owners. They love to get outside and explore, this means that they are more likely to have little accidents from going somewhere they shouldn’t - but for them it’s all in the name of fun!

The breed has been linked to a number of health problems like elbow and hip dysplasia, which might cause them to suffer when they are older. The breed is also characterised by their open, erect ears - which means them prone to suffering from ear infections. Veterinary treatment will clear up ear infections fairly easily. Keeping an eye on their diet, and making sure they get plenty of exercise, will help to keep them healthy and happy.

Like all dogs that are used for working purposes they are at risk to accidents if they are used in risky situations such as guard duty or police dog work.

German Shepherds - sometimes called Alsatians - are one of the most active working dogs around the world due to their loyalty and intelligence.

These dogs make great family pets and will be loyal and protective of your home and the people in it.
