The Unusual Silver German Shepherd: What Should You Know About It?
Does the term silver German Shepherd sound beautiful and exotic to you? Silver is an elusive color in the Shepherd groups. Moreover, silver can describe a vast array of color shades in different dogs.
Many times silver in dogs comes nowhere near the metallic sheen we generally associate with the color. However, some breeds come very close, like the Norwegian Elkhound and a few Poodles.
What is a silver German Shepherd and how do you obtain the color?

Training Tip For Dog Owners
Training can be really hard if we fail to complete all four stages of training, or if we go about the four stages in the wrong order:
1. Get the response
2. Pair the response with a cue
3. Teach the response
4. Proof the response
The first three are the quickest and easiest to put in place, and you’ll likely be able to get through them with ease.
But unfortunately, most people never make it past the first three stages - and a lot of people actually attempt stage 3 without properly getting through the first 2!
So, the 3 key things to keep in mind this week are:
1. Start at stage one: dog training is very hard if you try to take shortcuts - always start at the beginning.
2. Get the order of training right: Work through each of the four stages in the proper order. Complete each step right before proceeding to the next.
3. Don’t stop until you have completed stage four: Remember, success in dog training is impossible if you stop at stage three - always ‘proof’ the response that you have taught to your dog and practice until perfect.
Proofing means teaching your dog that the signal or cue you’ve given has the exact same meaning in ANY circumstance.
- ‘Come’ still means come when he’s playing with other dogs.
- ‘Sit’ still means sit when another dog runs past him.
- ‘Down’ still means down when you’re eating pizza!
The process of ‘proofing’ your training MUST be done so that your dog still responds, regardless of surrounding distractions.
