Questions & Answers

Questions about German Shepherd puppies for sale in Nashville TN? We have answers.

Give me an overview of German Shepherd puppies for sale in Nashville TN.

The breeders and businesses in our network never set out to offer the “cheapest” puppies because anyone who is in the industry understands that cheap often means that important corners have been cut. You’ll notice that if you search common phrases like “German Shepherd breeders Nashville” or “German Shepherd Nashville” that there are Nashville German Shepherd puppies for sale at a variety of prices! The challenge comes when you start to try and determine the reason that these puppies are priced so drastically different.

Why shouldn’t I bring home a shelter dog instead?

If finding a purebred or purpose-bred designer puppy is important to you, you probably also want to know your new family member's health and behavioral history. If that is the case, you’ll want to work with a network that is actively vetting breeders so that you don’t have to waste your time! That being said, as dog lovers by no means are we anti-shelter, in fact we realize all of the benefits that shelters offer. All that we can ask is that instead of searching “German Shepherd puppies for sale Nashville”, you give one of the pre-vetted breeders below a chance!

What is a backyard breeder?

A backyard breeder is a term used for puppy businesses who are operating out of a spare bedroom or even out of a residential backyard. With so many backyard breeders flooding the marketing finding German Shepherds for sale in Nashville from reputable puppy businesses can be difficult.

Finding a litter of well-taken care of Nashville German Shepherds for sale and taking one home to meet your family is one of the best feelings in the world.

Is it enough to walk my dog, or do they need more exercise?

For a lot of dogs a walk around the block or a stroll to the grocery store will be enough but as the dog gets bigger that situation evolves. German Shepherds were bred to be working dogs so you should expect them to have a lot more energy than a Poodle or Miniature Schnauzer. It’s also important to remember that any dog who isn’t getting enough exercise is more prone to destructive behavior like scratching and digging.

What is a puppy mill?

Puppy mills are facilities that breed countless German Shepherds or other valuable dogs while also limiting the resources they are putting into the process. Puppy mills may have grand buildings but that is only because they want to cram as many puppies into them as possible. Unfortunately in the modern world when you type a phrase like “German Shepherds for sale Nashville” into Google or Yahoo your chances of coming across a puppy mill are extremely high!
