The average life expectancy for the German shepherd dog is between 10 and 13 years.
The German Shepherd dog’s longevity can be affected by a variety of factors. It’s possible to avoid many of these issues.
A balanced meal is vital to your German Shepherd puppy’s health. Large breed puppies should be fed a specially prepared chow that supports joint health.
Puppies require adequate exercise in addition to nutrients. Experts say a three-month-old GSD can walk for 15 minutes, and a one-year-old GSD can exercise for an hour.
The longevity of a GSD is heavily influenced by how they are bred. Many breeders choose practical and temperamental dogs above cosmetically pleasing dogs.
