"They are fluffy cute pets "

OVERVIEW :

This breed was founded in Germany. They are many times confused with the Pomeranian dogs because of their white colour and fluffy and small appearance. They are perfect dogs for an apartment as they are adaptable. They are the best ones for your family. They can get aggressive at times. They have a high level of energy and they bark a lot, in fact, they can bark constantly. They are very playful, alert, obedient and intelligent. They love the company of human beings so try to keep them away not for too long hours.

  • They have long straight top coats and have a soft woolly undercoat.

FOOD HABITS :

They don't need to eat in bulk. You cannot make them eat for the whole day, you have to stick to a schedule and divide the meal between two times a day. They need high-quality dry food in a day.

But with this, I would even tell that the need for a dog's body varies from one dog to another because that depends completely on their physical needs. If your dog is sporty and an active one, then, of course, he will need more food than others. So it's important to watch out your dog and accordingly develop up their eating habits.

It's important to feed your pet with the right quantity and quality of food to help them grow in the best manner they may can.

You should never share human food with your pet because that may contain elements which can be toxic for your pet for example potatoes, chocolates, etc.

CARING TIPS:

Their grooming should be performed once a week. They shed little so they need occasional trimming.  They need your attention always. If you are planning to have German Spitz with you then you have to be a bit bossy with them ( Owner should be a leader to own a German ). They need a daily walk or jog of 20 miles at least.

MEDICAL TIPS :

HIP DYSPLASIA -

  • In this condition, the bones don't fit into the hip joint.
  • The dog will have pain and will be low on rear legs.

ELBOW DYSPLASIA -

  • It is caused due to the different growth rate of three bones that together makes up a dog's elbow causing joint laxity.

TAIL PROBLEMS -

  • In this, it is caused to have various skin infections.

ALLERGIES -

  • They catch but allergy very soon and it can be caused by anything. If he starts licking his paws or if he rubs his face more often then it's time to get him checked up.

PROGRESSIVE RETINAL ATROPHY -

  • It is a disease which has the ultimate outcome as blindness. In this slowly the dog starts losing his vision.

 HOW TO SELECT YOUR GERMAN SPITZ DOG :

There are two most important things you should keep in mind if you are planning to buy a German Spitz.

First and the most important thing is to approach a reputed breeder because if you are not doing that remember you are on the verge of getting trapped and will be fooled out with a dog of the different breed. No doubt, that there are many beautiful dogs which will give you an illusion of being a  German Spitz dog but as we know looks is not all that is needed in a pet. So choose your breeder wisely and smartly. Try not getting fooled up from the fake breeders. Last but not the least choose the breeder with your area of interest. 

The second thing I believe comes as being an important point of concern is the quality of pedigree and remember only a reputed or a good breeder will only know what is pedigree. Actually, quality pedigree means what kind of parents, grandparents and ancestor that particular pet had, because through that only you will understand the abilities, temperament and health of that pet, as almost the same traits are passed as hereditary. Basically track record of a quality pup is very important.

Now what mostly happens is that at times we confuse the two important terms pedigree and puppy's registration but they are too different. Through pedigree, a reputed breeder can tell you what qualities the pet must have inherited but through registration papers, you identify who are the parents and ancestors of the pup but they will not tell you about the qualities.
