Today I am going to discuss companionship for your German Shepherd Dog puppy or adult. German Shepherd Dogs are gregarious, social, and pack animals. If you or your family spend the majority of your day with your German Shepherd Dog then your puppy or adult will never feel alone, and interaction with the human family suffices for the German Shepherd Dog’s need to be a part of a pack.
However, if you and your family are like most of us and heading off for school and work at least five days a week, you may consider getting a companion dog for your German Shepherd Dog. You do not have to spend big money to purchase another high quality German Shepherd Dog. You could check into pound or rescue dogs.
If you consider a pound or rescue dog, you should also consider getting the opposite sex of your German Shepherd Dog. Same sex dogs with German Shepherds Dogs may fight for dominance within the pack that includes you and your family, whereas, opposite sexes naturally assume their role in the pack without usually fighting.
In addition, you should consider getting a large dog that can withstand the rigorous and rough play of a German Shepherd Dog. My personal favorite is a Labrador or Labrador mixed breed. If you want a smaller dog, Corgis are an excellent choice.
Ask me a question and I will provide my opinion.
