Unique and FREE Dog Health Assessment Online! MYGERMANSHEPHERD.ORG has so much that no one else has - seen our DIY Dog Solutions Analysis?, our Dog Expert Interviews with Expert Reviews?, our Live & Multimedia New Puppy Diary?, seen the world's only Dog Training Toolkit? ... Oh my!
And here, try our Free Online DIY Dog Health Check right after these helpful explanations. Suitable for GSDs and physically similar breeds.
Being a free online health assessment based on your input data, and without seeing your dog for consultation, in the end it's a calculation of course, but the quality and amount of insight our unique DIY Dog Health Check provides may surprise you. Just make sure you enter data as precise as possible to get the most reliable results.
And use it frequently, whenever your dog changes. The more GSD owners use this FREE DIY Dog Health Check, the better its calibration.
Be aware that the scope of the results significantly depends on your input data. As a general rule, the healthier your dog (and/or the less data you enter) the shorter the results. That's like at a vet: ideally you get a mere "Your dog is fine" statement - but there, of course with a hefty price tag underneath! Conversely, if your dog is say underweight or too heavy, our Online dog Health Assessment will even give you dietary advice. Nice!
So that you know how to use it, next you see a couple explained dog health assessment example results, based on other dogs' input data. It really is that easy to use.
When you hover over any input field you will see helpful "tooltip" information as highlighted in the image (unless you use a suboptimal mobile device). When you've finished your inputs click the red Calculate HP button (Calculate Health Profile).
All results will depend on whether you enter 'f' or 'F' for female dog or puppy, or 'm' or 'M' for male dog or puppy. Only Gender, Height, and Weight are required inputs, the others are optional.
The info-icon next to 'Height' you can click. Then you see a page with an illustrated explanation how to easily and correctly measure your dog. This is critical to get accurate results, so don't treat that bit lightly: Most dog owners don't know how to measure their dog's height accurately, hence the linked page with an illustrated explanation.
The more input data you provide for your dog, the more results you will get! And the more accurate your input, the better the results!
The results will show up underneath all your input, they start with "Your GSD".
In addition to the surprisingly detailed results presented in text form, I also implemented for you a graphical representation how your dog or puppy compares to the German Shepherd "Breed Standard".
Don't worry if your GSD is a Large Breed GSD (predominantly bred in the USA), this will be identified and considered as well. Very nifty, did I mention?
To my knowledge this is the only comprehensive free online dog health assessment anywhere on the web! Certainly, in terms of its underlying methodology and hence the quality of its results it is second to none, because I with my academic methodological background developed it.
Very cool also is that from now, when you input your dog's data and click "Calculate HP" (Health Profile) the results are transmitted both onto your screen and back to the server to complement our global GSD database. Thus everyone's input will contribute to even better calibration for all results. For data cleansing reasons (dummy data from funny or spammy visitors) we will apply established statistical methods that shall help to generalize and cleanse all data before it is being used to derive any results.
The free online GSD Health Assessment ends with a call to action: "Improvement suggestions welcome" - because they really are:
