Dog Training & Ownership : How to Select a German Shepherd
Hello, my name is Zephyr Clarke Dolberg from
Miami Dog Training. In this clip we’re going
to talk about how to choose a German Shepherd.
Now, for example, this is a pure bred dog
German Shepherd and the more pure the lines,
the more they want to do their job. So when
you’re looking for a German Shepherd, you
want to look for nice strong bones, you want
to see both parents if you can, you want to
learn as much about the heredity that you
can from the dog that you have. So in choosing
a German Shepherd, you know maybe you want
a smaller dog. Maybe you want to try to find
lines that are smaller. Some lines are bigger.
This is a huge female German Shepherd. And
like I said before, she likes to work. Now
this is another kind of shepherd. This is
a mixed breed. You can see he’s mostly shepherd
but there’s some things that are different.
Notice the shorter snout then the standard
German Shepherd. He’s got stand up ears but
their not kind of batty like the German Shepherds.
And if you notice, he doesn’t have, come on
Stoney, he doesn’t have a body slope like
a German Shepherd. He’s built, his back is
much more level, his tail’s shorter and he’s
a little smaller boned. But he’s got a high
bred vigor like you wouldn’t believe. So sometimes
in mixed breed, maybe what you want. A lot
of times the mixed breeds can be hardier and
tend to do really well. They’re great dogs
and there is no reason anybody shouldn’t want
a mixed breed German Shepherd just as well.
This is Zephyr Clarke-Dolberg and this has
been how to choose a German Shepherd.
