Those of you who have a playful German Shepherd running about your yard let it be known that help is at hand. It is also hoped at this time that your yard is well secured. One can never take it for granted that your dog is going to protect all inhabitants and the property’s valued contents by its mere presence in an open yard, for instance. You need to secure your property as far as possible. Now when the good dog’s work is done for the day, what do you do? Yes, of course you feed him well, in accordance with your specialized veterinarian’s recommendations.
But what else do you do? It seems like such a silly question at this point in time, but, really folks, it needs to be asked, just to be certain. Particularly if you have an outdoorsy Alsatian as your loving pet and perfect guardian, you will, it is hoped, be taking your happy dog out for his daily walks. You need to take him out of the yard at least once a day, this after all the hard work he has done for you. And here we are not just talking about the quick zip around the corner so that you can be back in time to watch your favorite TV show.
Here we are talking about quite a lengthy walk. Time being of essence, what a pity that is the case, because your faithful dog has all the time in the world for you (so do him a favor); at least thirty minutes per evening should suffice. At the best of times, your favorite Alsatian will always remain quite an excitable chap. So just to be on the safe side for you and your dog, and the neighborhood cats and squirrels, do secure the boy with a German Shepherd Police Harness. But why a police harness? Isn’t that what the cops will be using to tie up the crooks?
No, not at all. In fact, most law enforcement agencies and professional dog handlers swear by its use. You have to bear in mind that when you are utilizing a sturdy leash for a rather big but excitable dog, you need to protect all interests, particularly that of your dog. Say now, you are taking him out on the evening walk. Even if he has been well trained, and well groomed, there will always be something out there to rattle his nerves. Even the best German Shepherds out there can be rather temperamental. It is in their nature, and they were bred that way.
You do not wish to be held liable for your neighbor’s cat being chowed or a nervous child being surreptitiously bitten. Rather be safe than sorry, and secure, by keeping your good canine pet in check with a sturdy harness that also fits comfortably around his neck. You are not enslaving him. You are just looking after his, and yours, best interests.
