Thread: German Shepard Puppy

  1. #1

    Default German Shepard Puppy

    Hi,

    My wife and i are hoping to have a German Shepard as a pet and understand that this breed requires alot of attention. Both my wife and i work during the day but we'd make time at the end of the day taking the puppy out for exercise etc. Question is, is it ok to leave the puppy on its own in the garage during the day?

    It's not OK to leave any puppy alone in the garage, or anywhere else, all day. Not even a German SHEPHERD. Do some research about your breed and be ready to fork out over $1000 for a well bred youngster who will NEED your attention. Take some leave or wait for holidays.

    I've been searching for a pup for years (wasn't going to be ready for one til Cappy went and unfortunately he went far too early) and I am still 6 months away because the breeder I have chosen wont be ready to breed her bitch til then.

    GSDs are cute and fluffy and magnificent - but not suited to someone who can't devote time to them.

    Thanks for the reply, how old should the puppy be before they can be left alone in the garage during working hours? Thanks.

    In my opinion German Shepherd or any other breed, puppy/adult should not be living in a garage for most of the day.

    Patrickraj came for help, lets not drive him away!

    A puppy/dog cannot be left in a garage. Can you imagine how boring that would be!
    They need stimulation and attention.

    Thanks for that valuable insight aussiemyf...

    Pups should never be left locked up - runs are preferable to garages where they can access poisons etc.

    A secure run is preferable - costly but a great investment.

    No need for sarcasm Occy.
    I was just confirming what the others had said, but maybe a little less, aggressive?

    The only others=myself and Occy,
    and neither of us said anything to 'drive him away'. Simply answering Patrickrajs question with the fact that no pup/dog should be locked in a garage for most of the day.
