The Corman Shepherd is a hybrid breed of the Corgi and the German Shepherd. This breed can take on the size of either of its parents and may be a bit on the smaller side or may be a medium sized pup. When it comes to medical and health problems, this breed is considered to be relatively healthy. Some of the most common health conditions to watch out for include bloat, eye problems, joint dysplasia, and back problems. To help weed out some of these conditions, you should work with a reputable breeder that tests his or her pups to ensure their health.
Bloat is a condition that requires immediate attention or it can be fatal. Bloat occurs when too much air becomes trapped inside of your pup’s stomach. There is nowhere for this air to go, so it simply causes the stomach to expand. In doing so, too much pressure is placed on the other organs around the stomach.
Eye problems are common in many breeds and almost impossible to avoid in some cases. It is important that you monitor the health of your pup and always report any changes in your Corman Shepherd’s eyes to your veterinarian. Some common eye problems include blindness, atrophy of the retina, cataracts, and eye infections.
Joint problems are another common problem in some breeds of dogs and your Corman Shepherd may experience some at some point in time. Most joint problems show up later on in life and can often be in the form of elbow or hip dysplasia or even arthritis. These conditions can be painful for your pup and may require medication to help with inflammation and pain.
Lastly, your pup may have back problems, which will show up later on in life too. Back problems are not as much of a concern, but it is important to pay attention to your pup’s health because an injured back can lead to paralysis and other complications, if not treated properly.
Temperament & Train-ability
The Corman Shepherd is considered to have a good attitude and can be very loyal while being smart at the same time. You will find that your Corman Shepherd is fun and likes to play around with you.
You will quickly see that this breed is close to the ones that he or she loves and makes a great companion. Your pup will demand attention from you and will expect you to be as affectionate as he or she is.
This is a loyal pup, but should not be looked to as a watch dog. While you may hear the occasional bark from him or her, it is not common and he or she is unlikely to be defensive when a stranger walks in.
The Corman Shepherd likes to play outside and will require some exercise. You should allow him or her to run around in your yard and take your dog on a walk twice a day.
This breed does not like to be left alone for long periods of time and becomes quite destructive when they are.
You will find that your new puppy is easy to train and responds well to your commands. In addition, he or she will strive to make you happy and responds well to positive reinforcement for a job well done. The Corman Shepherd does not respond to harsh training methods and will take a stubborn stance when presented with a harsh owner. Make sure you keep your calm and remain persistent.
The Corman Shepherd has some grooming needs, but he or she is easy to take care of. You will need to brush him or her every day to help keep the dog’s coat in good condition and to remove any loose hairs.
You do not need to bathe your Corman Shepherd except when it is really needed, but you should clean his or her ears out at least once per week. To clean your Corman Shepherd’s ears, you should purchase a mild cleansing solution and use it along with a cotton ball to wipe the ears clean.
Lastly, you need to make sure that you trim your Corman Shepherd’s nails once per month or as often as needed. When your pup’s nails grow too long, he or she will snag the nails and this can cause breaks and splits.
You can expect your Corman Shepherd to eat 1 1/2 cups to 3 cups of food per day. You want to purchase a dry food that is considered to be high quality and high in nutrients.
Your pup needs a food that will keep up with his or her age and activity level. As you shop around for the best brand of dry food, make sure you choose one that is made with wholesome, all natural ingredients and not with chemicals or fillers.
You can feed your Corman Shepherd wet food on an occasional basis, but do not rely on it as the only source of nutrition for your pet. Too much wet food can lead to obesity and dental conditions.
