German Shepherd Puppies
Up Your New
the early days, you should decide on one person to be responsible for
up your new German Shepherd puppy,
develop a daily routine for feeding
established straight away as it's easier to train a small puppy before
he picks up any bad habits, and it will be more difficult and time
consuming to train a larger dog.
You need to give your German
intervals and establish a relationship with your puppy,
trust and inspire confidence, coax him to eat at mealtimes which should
and often (about 5
times per day at first up to 11 weeks of age - then
feed 4 times per day from 12 weeks of age to 6 months - then
6 -12 months feed 3 times per day - after 12 months feed twice per
day, then adult dogs - feed once per day)
forget to increase the size of portions gradually - dependent upon each
individual dog .........
i.e. don't starve him and don't overfeed your dog or you may make him
give your dog small bones of any kind -
especially rabbit or
poultry bones - as they can be swallowed and maybe get stuck in your
throat or stomach which can be dangerous to your dogs health.
Large bones can be helpful when your German
Shepherd puppy is teething, and always have a bowl
or dish of fresh cold water available at all times.
place them in the same spot after meals and when they first wake up in
the morning - cover
this spot with newspapers and they will get in the habit of going back
to the same spot each time. Make a fuss of him and carry him back into
the house - put him out late at night and very early in the
morning so he can relieve himself.
starting Preliminary Training of your German Shepherd puppy,
remember that a puppy
has a short memory, so if he does wrong you must catch him in the act -
tone of voice is very important - it must be instant or it
useless, scold him at once - if you don't catch him in the act, then
telling him off later will be a complete waste of time because he will
have forgotten all about it, and he won't understand why you are
cross with him and he will become confused.
him happy and maintain
trust at all times
lavish praise when your German
Shepherd puppy performs well and reward him with 'treats' -
way he will begin to associate that doing what you want results in a
short commands i.e. Sit ............. (not
using his name to
get his attention, and reward him frequently in the
his mind when you call him - he will recognise the sound of his name
and he will come to you - and you will reward him! Believe me - if
there's a treat in store for him - he will soon learn - and remember 'practice
makes perfect' -
repetition is the name of the game.
up your new German
is a wonderful experience, you're taking a young puppy
at least 8 weeks of age away from its mother and members of the litter,
and bringing it to your home - which
is a daunting experience for such
young dog - to new surroundings, and new people to get to
So while it may be
exciting for you, your new puppy is going to find it a little
soon as you get back home, let your puppy out into your backyard so he
can relieve himself- give him as much time as he needs, then take him
back inside, keeping him on his new leash and take him into each room -
give him time to sniff about and 'aclimatise' to his new surroundings.
Make sure you talk
to him, your voice is comforting to him and will give him a sense of

are creatures of habit and learn quickly)
Now the first
subtle sign of leadership to your puppy is to get him to 'sit' before
one hand on his chest, the other hand on his rear end, give the command
'sit' and push down on his rump and up on his chest to guide your new
puppy into the sit position. Give lots of praise to him for 'doing it
right' so he feels pleasure - then give him a 'treat'. So now every
time you go to feed your puppy, you make him sit first. This way your
puppy will learn that you are in control - he doesn't get to eat until
you say so, and he must please you first.
