Black German Shepherds make great pets

The Black German Shepherd has retained the more traditional look of a German Shepherd through the years. This is one of the main differences between the Black German Shepherd and the regular German Shepherd. The Black German Shepherd is also larger with a much straighter back and it does not "cringe". Cringing is an appearance that is common to German Shepherds. The coat of a Black German Shepherd can be long or short. It can also have feathering and skirting with a flowing mane.

Black German Shepherds have very pleasant temperaments and are very loyal, watchful and self-assured dogs. They very rarely ever back down. These dogs are very trainable and their training should begin when they are very young. The only health problem you must be aware of in a Black German Shepherd is hip and elbow dysplasia. Preventative measures should be taken early on. The Black German Shepherd makes a great family pet, but might be a bit strong for small children.

If you wanted to buy a Black German Shepherd it would cost you between eight hundred and one thousand dollars. The darker the color of the coat and the more luxurious it is, the more expensive the dog will be. Black German Shepherd puppies are very plentiful and should not be hard to locate. They are the most popular dog in Australia. Their litters can reach up to ten pups.

Maintaining a healthy Black German Shepherd is fairly easy. He will need plenty of exercise every day, so walking twice a day or having a large fenced in area is recommended. There is more chance of health problems if a Black German Shepherd is confined to a small area. Hip and elbow dysplasia is a common concern with these dogs, but with proper preventative measures the problem can be easily dealt with.

His grooming schedule will depend on the length of his coat and how often he plays in the mud. But normally, bathing should be monthly and brushing should be weekly.

They work with the police and have become obedience dogs. Plus they make great companion dogs. These working dogs are also great family pets.

What can't these dogs do? They can be used in any environment because of their versatility. This is the most popular dog in Australia and one can see why. This dog is great with children and will make a great guard dog for the home. His loyalty will make him very protective of everyone in the home.

The Black German Shepherd is capable of all of these working environments and still maintains a steady and soft disposition. The Black German Shepherd is truly man's best friend.
