 Reviewed 22 April 2019 share-a-picture Or go to discussion?join-the-discussion dogphoto

Got a dog problem?

Consider it solved. If only you cooperate here.

Dog Problems?

It is here where you find actual dog solutions. Not merely addressing symptoms like is done elsewhere: from veterinarian to dog behaviorist to dog trainer... doh!

Larry Essman: Tim, you have guided me in obtaining the best health for my gsd (max-A-million) and my little girl boxer/collie 13yrs old (pennies-from-heaven) could have. God Bless Tim and his wonderful website. You are always in my mind and heart. Great job in helping me understand and know that i can trust his word. Larry

Look, it is the widespread habit to treat mere symptoms that has led to the widespread failure of costly treatment attempts.

Not just in matters of dog health, puppy health and people health but dog training too. Example: dog barks too much, owner buys electronic collar to stop that. dumb?

Site member Sally: Your advice is amazing. Very well done! Sally

Dog Solutions!

mygermanshepherd-and-iSo if only you truly WANT(?) and thus you show a tad of reciprocity then my German Shepherd and I are here to actually help you solve your dog problem or puppy problem for good.

Whether that's dog health, dog care, or dog training.

Help is provided in the order of urgency and discomfort of the dog owner.

Joe: Man, what great information! Not only for our pets but for us humans. Please keep up the good work. You are appreciated.

Because we don't temporarily remove mere symptoms like others do.

Instead we focus on cure of the cause. And not only dog health and puppy health, but all dog behavior too.

Jim & Pat Garrity Stryker just turned 20mos old last week, and your site has been a great help to me and my wife Pat, over these many months, (and years to come)!

MyGermanShepherd.Org is The Cynology Hub because we focus on solving the cause of whatever symptoms you notice.

... or soon are going to notice if you continue to have others address mere symptoms. exclaim

Dog Problems: Solved! Dog Solutions ConsultationBecause look: Only solving the cause of the illness or unpleasant dog behavior prevents reoccurence, after-effects and "side effects".

All of which in fact are the consequences of not having addressed the cause from the start!

You see?

And so MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG with Tim Carter's focus on solving issues for good is unique.

John Richard: Perfect... That is exactly what I needed. Thanks, John

Accordingly below we make use of our own clear, detailed and comprehensive Dog Problem Questionnaire to collect from you the information we need to focus on solving the cause for you. Once and for all.

This saves you the widespread "coming back", follow-up bills and follow-up problems caused by not solving the original problem!

Understood the difference?

Maria T.: As always, very well explained. Thank you Tim


Be aware that any genuine dog experts will enquire similar detail as is in our proprietary questionnaire below. The problem however is:

  • you have no access to genuine dog experts (maybe unless you click this link)
  • and already a mediocre vet or local wannabe dog trainer you have to pay a minimum of $120 just to look at this level of detail in a consultation
  • and then mediocre professionals cannot act on the information, even if you give them a detailed questionnaire like ours below.

Sherri: Very informative and certainly puts it in perspective. Thanks very much for the information - as always very informative.

Please share this page with your friends so that your friends can get help too:

Your First Name     Your Best Email

Please make 100% sure your email is CORRECT, because else, even if you donate $1000, we cannot possibly reply, right? - Likewise, Tim's reply may wrongly end up in your provider's SPAM folder.

Remember, no more vet bills and trainer bills to pay!

Also, your vet and trainer you have to pay, and upfront, and for very questionable outcome. And likely: soon thereafter again, and again.
