Recommended diet for German Shepherd

There are 3 things that are detrimental to a German Shepherd's health and well being. Diet is one of them. There are several schools of thought on the best diet for German Shepherd Dog: 1. raw food diet 2.  strictly dog food diet 3. cooking for your German Shepherd.

Personally I prefer to use a combination of the above, and I observe how each of our dogs responds to the diet it is on and adjust accordingly. As far as dry food we prefer "Taste of the wild", "Merrick" and "Fromm" brands. We use grain free only as some GSD can be allergic to grains.  We also give our dogs raw beef, raw salmon and raw chicken (half a chicken). We also cook meals for our German Shepherd Dogs: Chicken quarters, rice, brussel sprouts, broccoli, carrots, oats.   Along with a daily vitamin and a capsule containing Omega 3, Omega 6 and Omega 9 oils it keeps our dogs happy and healthy.

German Shepherd needs plenty of exercise!

I can't stress enough the importance of exercise for German Shepherd Dog. German Shepherd is a very active breed and long periods of inactivity can be bad for their health as well as their mental state.  You can play fetch, bike ride, run with your dog to keep it active and in shape. It also helps you develop a special bond with your dog. A well exercised German Shepherd is much less likely to be mischievous  and get into trouble. 

If a German Shepherd doesn't get any exercise for more than a week at a time it may develop inflammation of joints, ear or eye infection.  Getting plenty of exercise is just as important to a German Shepherd Dog as getting good quality food.
