This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in October of 2018. German shepherds are very special dogs. When grown, they are athletic, protective, and, overall, impressive animals. We found food that helps developing puppies meet their full potential, while still being gentle on the sensitive systems of young ones. Your furry friend will be excited to gobble up any of these tasty selections, and you'll be satisfied with the nutritional profiles. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

November 05, 2018:

While German Shepherds definitely have some distinctive traits, we know that not every single puppy is the exact same. Some thrive on different protein sources than others and certain dogs have allergies and sensitivities. We worked to include a variety of foods that cater to these diverse needs while focusing on formulas designed to help little canine babies grow up to be big, strong companions.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
