I love dogs. I knew about them and wanted one for a long time, and recently I applied to adopt a service dog for my generalized anxiety and panic disorder, as well as my cerebral palsy. Because I have limited movements, a dog has been extremely helpful in doing some things I have difficulty with.
If you’re considering adopting one of these adorable pets, here are a few tips I have for you:
•Make sure you’re able to stay active! I take my dog with me everywhere I go because he’s my service dog. However, I recommend being able to have someone watch your black German Shepherd dog for at least part of the day if you aren’t able too.
•A fenced in yard is great! I live with my mother, who has a fenced in yard. I let Bessie run free for a few hours each evening; she really enjoys it.
•Having the ability to introduce your pet to new doggy friends is excellent. I’ve taken my dog to the dog park just so I could introduce him to another German shepherd dog. It’s made Bessie much happier.
•Know that the German Shepherd won’t be happy being away from you for long periods of time — they’re bred for company and companionship. If you work long hours, I’d caution getting this animal as a pet.
Overall, I’ve loved my experience with Bessie, my service dog. If you’re interested in learning more about getting a pet, don’t wait! Find out more about black German Shepherds today.
