This survey has been established by the German Shepherd Dog breed clubs and The Kennel Club to gain a better understanding of existing health concerns and identify potential emerging concerns within the breed. Please complete this survey even if your dog has never been affected by any conditions, it is important to understand the prevalence of different issues within the breed. The results gained from this survey will direct new research to specific areas of the breed's health that require further attention for the future health and well-being of the German Shepherd Dog. 

Please complete one survey per German Shepherd Dog that you own. We recommend using either a desktop computer or laptop to complete this survey. All personal information given will be kept confidential and be presented anonymously. 

Please note: this survey contains an optional question that allows you to submit a side on image (approximately 2 metres away) of your German Shepherd Dog.
