You can find out all about the German Shepherd Dog in our extensive guide here. The Rottweiler is a member of the working group of breeds. Rotties are much larger in size, typically maturing to 77-130 pounds and 22-27 inches tall.
Breeds that are predisposed to panosteitis include German shepherds, Great Danes, Dobermans, Golden retrievers, Labradors, Rotties and Basset hounds. The dog may show hesitance to walk, run, jump, or exercise. If the affected bone is squeezed, the dog will exhibit pain as well.
Most puppies can learn to be fully potty-trained by 4 months of age.
Australian Shepherds can typically be potty trained very easily. The key to potty training your puppy is consistency. One of the easiest ways to housebreak an Australian Shepherd is by crate training. Remember that consistency is key to housebreaking an Aussie.
Learning how to potty train a German Shepherd puppy does not have to be stressful or worrisome but it does take time and persistence. When you bring your puppy home the first house rule she should learn is not to poop and pee in the house. If you do it right you'll see it's easier than you think.
Place the crate in a room where you are both happy with your German Shepherd sleeping at night. He might like to be near you or he may want a cool, quiet place to sleep at night. When your pup is sleepy, even during the day, place him in the crate. Before sleep, be sure to take him outside to go potty.
At approximately 20 days your German Shepherd puppy is able to control her bodily functions. In other words, she'll eliminate when necessary. At 8 to 16 weeks your pup can only hold her pee for approximately 2 hours. Take her out every hour to be safe.
