German shepherds are a medium to large dog breed. They are known for their loyalty, courage, and intelligence. They can weigh from 25 to 45kg. They possess instinctive drive, resilience and self-confidence, and are suitable as a companion, watch dog and protection service dog. Their coat is medium length with a double coat. The under coat can be thick, we recommend owners trim the under layer when using any E-collar to allow the electronic collars’ contact probes to touch the dog’s skin.
Bark control solution
German shepherds have always been known as guard dogs. Hence, they have an instinct to bark. DogMaster Trainers recommend the Dogtra YS600 anti bark collars for German Shepherds. This collar has an adjustable manual stimulation setting which means the owner can adjust the output to suit their dogs. This feature is a must have for larger dogs.
