Regular brushing and occasional bathing keep your German Shepherd's coat healthy. Use a de-shedding tool like a Furminator to remove loose hair easily and safely.
Bathing your German Shepherd too often can strip their coat and skin of natural oils. Unless necessary, bathing once or twice a year is sufficient.
The quality of your German Shepherd's diet can affect their shedding. High-quality protein can help reduce shedding. Avoid shaving or cutting their coat.
The frequency of nail trimming depends on your dog's environment. Dogs who walk on pavement may not need trimming, while others may need it monthly.
German Shepherds' tall, alert ears can be prone to infections. Regularly clean your dog's ears with hypoallergenic baby wipes and check for infections.
For dental care, use disposable dental wipes or dog-friendly flavored toothpaste. Consult with your vet about the best dental hygiene routine for your dog.
Regular grooming helps you spot any medical problems early. German Shepherds are a versatile breed, so a little regular care goes a long way.
