Question by angel: what should i ask a breeder before i buy a puppy?
well i’m interested in getting a german shepherd but i want to make sure (since they have a bad rep) that the dog will be safe. I heard that you should ask for clearences (eye, hip, elbow, heart ect.) i’m not sure what this means though and what i should be looking for? what are other things that i should ask the breeder?
how long is too long for a german shepherd to be alone during the day? we had an akita that did fine being home for 5 hours while the family wasn’t here would this be okay for a shepherd too?
Answer by nikky
German shepards are pretty good about using the rest room when they are potty trained. They only have to go about every 6 hours. But it’s always different. You have to look for a blood line of hip displasya.
