So you've got an adult dog and you're looking for solutions to dog care?
Well, we don't restrict dog care to skin care, ear care etc, we see adult dog care much wider.
Let's explore a few key dog care topics below. Note that you don't have to pay for any of this: it's all FREE dog care, while your vet's care you pay dearly each visit.
What to feed, when, how, how much, and for each: why!
- pharma industry sharing income streams with veterinarians!
- and pet "food" industry sharing income streams with veterinarians!
Veterinarians always make their cut, indeed. All three of them joined forces for HUGE business. Knowing: dog owners don't notice the unethical collaboration.
But fact is:
- Industrial pet "food" is a waste product from rendering plants from the very very end of today's food chain.
- And breed-specific dog food is nothing but marketing: There is NO difference to other packages, and there is NO inherent nutrients left in any packages.
You can STOP THAT anytime though, and that's FREE too: see Owner education further below.
Sufficient varied exercise is another hugely important part of adult dog care, in particular for the German Shepherd Dog breed: German Shepherd exercise is essential.
After all this is a herding dog, specifically bred to run around all day to collect livestock. Not bred to lie on a couch and watch TV.
Without these learned experiences your dog will become difficult, and you are denying your dog to live the healthy and meaningful life (s)he otherwise would.

Freedom - for herding dogs and other dogs
In fact, if you start out right - with Behavior Training, not Obedience Training - then you too can even leave your puppy with free run of the house, even while you are away - once fully house-trained:
