Name for a German Shepherd Puppy?

Name for a German Shepherd Puppy? Topic: Football writing paper
May 25, 2019 / By Josse
Question: I have a German shepherd puppy and right now he doesn't have a call name yet (he came with a registration name, which is German and way too difficult to pronounce!). He is a working line puppy and a stock coated saddle sable - hard to tell now, as he is still very young and sables change a LOT from puppy to adulthood. His mother is a dark sable from German working lines and his father a saddle sable with a distinct mask and pigmentation, from American working lines. He's very smart and curious, and very playful. Right now I am thinking of Trent Ruin Havoc Chaos Ember Dagger Malice Hawk Talon Peril Thorn Something that suits a German shepherd... and nothing "cutesy" (like Fluffy or Mocha). Thanks :) He's a boy puppy, so no girl names! And I don't want to have an overused name, like Chief or Max (which is the most popular dog name!). I don't consider them dark names, I consider them names that I like. Plus, he's a dark colored dog, so why not? I mean, does it make a difference to his personality if I call him "Happy Fluffy Bunny Pops" instead of "Ember" or "Talon" And since what makes a name just for humans?!? Tell that to all those people with dog's name Max! I liked Trent after Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails (and according to my dad there's a football player named Trent... I've no idea...) Oh! And Blade was on my list too, I loved that name :) Love Cain! and Frog? Last time I checked, Malice had two syllables. Maybe I'm just pronouncing it wrong? He's a stock coat, so he's not very fluffy. yaivi - thanks! I have considered those factors, and I plan to use his registration (official) name in documents and papers. I originally thought of the name "Bane" but it sounded too much like "Bang!", which I'd look like a lunatic yelling!

I personally love all those names (I'm a somewhat dark person at times! XP). However, there are things you should consider when choosing a name. Are you prepared to write it on important documents and registration papers at the vet, training program... etc.? Are you comfortable with calling it in public when doing a recall? Is it easy to pronounce? Can the dog recognise it easily? Will any of the names sound like a human command or frequently used word (e.g. Joe sounds like no, which is used when reprimanding the dog)? I can't offer any opinion as to which name--sorry!--but I hope that what I've given you in the above paragraph is of at least some help. =)

If BIGness is what you are looking for, and is the only thing that is important to you, then a GSD is NOT the breed for you. Although there are many people in Britain, Canada and the USofA who think that "Bigger is better", they simply prove that they know nothing about what the GSD breed was developed for. Experienced shepherds have worked out a suitable size range that allows their GSD to be" SMALL enough to be more nimble than the sheep that is trying to dodge past it to eat the unfenced crops, plus be economical to feed; STRONG enough to drag a sneaky sheep out of the crops, plus to "see off" 2-legged and 4-legged predators. The ideal is built into the International Standard of the GSD: http://www.fci.be/uploaded_files/166A199... (much more specific than the rebel inventions used in the 3 nations I named). For a second class GSD a tolerance of 1 cm is allowed, and so a male MUST fit into the range 59-66cm, a female into the range 54-61 cm. So the MAXIMUM for a dog is 26 inches, for a bit.ch the maximum is 24 inches. Anything bigger than that cannot be classified as a GSD. Have you found out how tall are the 2 parents and 4 grandparents of the litter you are thinking about? Are they actually breeding-quality GSDs? These are the requirements for that: http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/The_G... (1) Have you researched so that you understand the various ways of reporting on hips & elbows, then made sure that both parents and all 4 grandparents have OFFICIAL certificates reporting their joints as being acceptable? A missing Certificate spells DANGER - so go away. (2) Have you STUDIED the printed & signed Guarantee that goes with each pup in this litter? If there is no Guarantee, or the wording aims to make it impossible for you get financial compensation for treating any genetic "unthinkable" that might afflict your pet in the next few years, get away as fast as you can. The only time you ignore #1 and #2 is if you are getting a pup from a rescue group or SPCA shelter - the people there did not choose the parents, and usually know nothing about each pooch's background, so cannot be held responsible for genetic defects. But you MUST maintain comprehensive veterinary insurance in case your pup inherited "bad" genes that will afflict it in a few years' time. By the time you've read through to here (including the links I gave), you OUGHT to realise that attitude, behaviour, biddability, calmness & courage are FAR more important than size - especially OVER-size. Apart from which, size is almost impossible to predict. My last litter was a repeat. Both times, most of the pups were about medium size as adults. But a dog in the first litter was over-size, a bit.ch in the second litter is absolute minimum size. So, provided the parents are satisfactory, forget size - your first priority must be a pup that is INTERESTED in you, INTERESTED in chasing after a gently bouncing ball or something you are dragging as you walk - but not the least upset if another pup gets there first. Also check for physical soundness - there must be no wobbling or dipping or twisting in any of its 4 legs as it moves around. Its front legs musts be dead straight while it comes towards you, its hind legs must be dead straight as it goes away from you - it's paws may be closer together than its shoulders & hips, but the legs MUST be straight when seen from either end • Add http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/The_G... to your browser's Bookmarks or Favorites so that you can easily look up such as feeding, vaccinations, worming, clubs, weights, teething, neutering, disorders, genetics. And realise that you haven't asked the IMPORTANT questions, the ones about feeding, housing, toilet training, no-bite training, familiarisation (often called "socialisation"). Do you even realise that YOU must be in a weekly training club class (forget pet-shop play-groups) from when Pup is 18-22 weeks old until at least a year old, so that you get coached on how to be an effective trainer? At the same time, Pup learns to pay attention regardless of what other dogs & people are doing. • To ask about GSDs, join some of the 400+ YahooGroups dedicated to various aspects of living with them.

When she runs, she desires you to chase her. I realise that you simply have got to considering the fact that of the street, however you are simplest encouraging the habits. Practicing in an enclosed again backyard (which I wish you've got) is the first-rate technique to educate her. You must educate her to come back while known as with the intention to name her clear of risk and she will get the awareness she needs. Work along with her, provide her treats while she comes. A clicker is well additionally, considering the fact that it really works as a bridge among the motion and the deal with. My first-rate idea for the dust is to spray anything on it that she does not like. Apple sour is a well candidate. Puppies are going to chunk, however to support give up her from biting folks, simply preserve her muzzle close at any time when she does it. Their muzzles are very touchy proper approximately the nostril and only a small quantity of strain will discourage them. I do not feel you'll be able to give up her from barking, it is kinda traditional. The fundamental factor is to only now not present her for the habits. So if she barks, do not pass puppy her to make her give up or yell at her or some thing... Just permit her get worn out of it.

I understand nothing too cute but whats with the dark names??? And Trent is one of those names that belongs to a person not an animal. If those are your options, I'd go with Ember.

Gretchen, Heidi, or Greta are good female German names. Remember to keep it short. Kahki looks and sounds like Khaki. A color! A drab one at that!

Carl Originally Answered: Getting a German Shepherd puppy, can you give me some advice?
#1: Neither. #2: Neither. #3: No, if you intend to close the door to the "cave". #4: No. It should be in a roofed outside security run where it can exercise, toilet, and experience the changing world - NEVER imprisoned in solitary confinement #5: Maybe. That was easy! See, I expect people who want one of my GSDs to have a plan for where it will sleep that does NOT involve a shut crate. My dogs mostly spend part of each day in roofed outside runs with at least 12 feet between each run's gate and its raised sleeping box. My current GSD came inside at 8½ weeks old and had the run of the house 24/7 except for 2 shut rooms (lounge & guest-room) and my always open bedroom. Paper-training was completed that afternoon. That afternoon she was also almost trained that my bedroom was forbidden - but on 5 mornings I had to look in the passage for the aromatic sock she had been unable to resist while I was asleep. She didn't see a crate until 8 years old, the night before when she had to fly to a stud. The problem with crating is three-fold. Firstly, a pup needs to be able to exercise its fast-growing bones & muscles every minute that it is awake. Secondly, it comes with the instinct to get away from its nest before piddle-pooing. Catch 22: An enclosure small enough to trigger that instinct is too small to exercise in. An enclosure big enough to exercise in is big enough to piddle-poo in. Thirdly, pups cannot hold-on for hours. So, being locked in for the 8+ hours that you are boringly asleep, it is FORCED to break the nest-instinct that toilet-training relies on. So if you shut your pup in YOU have to wake up & take pup to the toilet area every 2 hours, and STAY there until it DOES go toilet, then praise it sincerely despite your chattering teeth & blue-white toes That said, a cardboard box or solid-walled crate is very comforting for a young pup, allowing it to lie inside its "cave" so that its rear end cannot be got at, and aiming its teeth at the open doorway deters approaches by mice, kittens, whatever. If Pup doesn't like what you supply as its "cave", placing food in there while it watches definitely helps to encourage it to enter. When it DOES eventually go right inside voluntarily - praise it and shut the door. Open it as soon as Pup turns around, then call Pup out and praise it for coming. When bringing each of our pups home from 400 miles away, back in the late 1960s, we put it in a small cardboard box, with a towel for softness. It could see out of the box, but spent most (not ALL!) of the trip just sleeping. It needs to be where FRESH air arrives, not oily air heated by the engine block. And you need to carry cleaning-up cloths in case it needs to express its unfavourable opinion of the driver's skills.... There is HEAPS you need to know about keeping Pup away from viruses, familiarising it with EVERYTHING possible (movements, reflections, scents, sights, sounds, textures) in a non-scary way, using reward-reinforcement home training techniques to convince it that the world is a fun, safe place and you are the source of everything good in the universe. But DEFINITELY, as soon as you know Pup's birthdate, book yourself into a weekly training-club class that will start when Pup is 18-22 weeks old, so that YOU can be coached on how to be an effective trainer - as a bonus side-effect, Pup learns to pay attention regardless of what other dogs & people are doing. • Add http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/The_G... to your browser's Bookmarks or Favorites so that you can easily look up such as feeding, vaccinations, worming, clubs, weights, teething, neutering, disorders, genetics.
