Differences between male and female german shepherds
This is the second most asked question that we encounter as breeders. Choosing between a male or female dog is strictly a matter of preference. From our experience, I will say that males are more protective of their surrounding area,  while females are more protective of their family (your family).

The German Shepherd Male
  • Generally, the German shepherd male is larger in size and more masculine in structure.
  • His size allownace shoud be 60–65 cm (24–26 inches).
  • The size and the masculinity of the male, most often is intimidating to strangers.
  • German shepherd males are generally more territorial of their location. The marking of the territory can be a problem. How-ever, if trained properly, the problem can be controlled.
  • Neutering may help lighten this problem (In our experience neutering the male/s did not alter this territorial marking).
  • German shepherd males are also larger in size and bulk. They will go further to explore their territory when scent of female in heat is near.

The German Shepherd Female

  • The female German shepherd should be smaller in size and feminine in structure. You should be able to recognize her gender from distance.
  • Her size allownace shoud be 55–60 cm (22–24 inches).
  • The female may be smaller in size, but the size can be of advantage in her working ability.
  • Female German shepherd have the "pack" instinct. They will be protective of their family more so then males. This instinct will sometimes cause her to be jealous among the other dogs in the household.
  • If the female German shepherd is not intended for breeding, she should be spayed. 
  • The female dog is Ideal for a family, will protect her family (her pack)with a much stronger desire then the male.
Constant access to fresh water can help keep your dog healthy. Water is the most important nutrient, and is considered essential for all body functions.
