German Shepherd

general characteristics

All over the world, the German Shepherd is famous for its loyalty and reliability: it can be an excellent watchdog, shepherd, hunter, guide for the blind and even a lifeguard. A properly trained German Shepherd is almost impossible to see irritated or aggressive. She is tolerant, intelligent and instinctively feels the mood of people. Endless dedication to her family and good attitude towards children make her one of the most popular dogs in the world.


Every owner dreams of seeing his dog healthy, active and cheerful.
And, as you know, the basis of health is proper, nutritious and balanced nutrition.

That’s why PEDIGREE® has developed a special application that will help you evaluate how the diet you feed your pet meets his needs.
