Treating German Shepherd Penis Problems

You’ve had your GSD for a few months now, but you’re starting to notice his German Shepherd red rocket… a lot. More importantly, you’ve noticed that your German Shepherd penis lets out some sort of fluid every time it’s out and you’re sure it’s not urine. Find out if it’s natural and what it all means here!

What is a normal German Shepherd penis size?

The normal German Shepherd penis size (when fully aroused) is about 8 inches. Initially, this may seem very large, but it should be noted that a German Shepherd red rocket does not usually get to this size until after penetration. This happens when the “baculum”, a bone responsible for red rocket stiffness, fully extends.

Why does my GSD become aroused so quickly?

It’s a very normal occurrence for GSDs to “unsheath” their red rocket for a variety of reasons. The most common reason is because they’re excited for play. However, your German Shepherd red rocket should not reach its fully erect state unless they are engaging in sexual activity.

Typically, arousal for GSDs can come from any kind of stimuli; fear, excitement or even curiosity. During these times, it should be noted that your German Shepherd penis size may not return to normal levels for up to 72 hours and may even be more prone to overexcitation and overarousal. This may result in behavioral problems and an overall lack of self-restraint for your GSD.

How do I calm down my GSD?

Games are beneficial in controlling your German Shepherd red rocket. Constant engagement helps by keeping your GSD’s facilities occupied and develops discipline. Consult with your vet or other experienced dog owners about different kinds of games to play with your GSD, with dog arousal control specifically as its main goal.

German Shepherd red rocket discharge

You may notice some unusually-colored fluid or discharge coming from the tip of your German Shepherd red rocket. Read on and determine if heading to the vet and getting your GSD checked is necessary.

What are normal kinds of GSD red rocket discharge?

A small amount of fluid; a few drops is normal to find on the tip of your GSD’s penis. More importantly, the fluid can be yellow-white or even greenish-white. This is smegma and is a sign that your GSD’s red rocket is healthy; your GSD may even use its tongue to clean itself of this discharge every couple of hours or so. 

What kinds of red rocket discharge should I worry about?

If your GSD looks ill, acts aloof, or licks itself more often than usual, you may want to consider booking an appointment to the vet. As mentioned earlier, yellow-white or greenish-white fluid discharge is normal but large amounts of it, pus-colored or bloody discharge, are huge warning signs.

Pus-colored or bloody discharge may be signs that your German Shepherd red rocket is infected, suffering some form of traumatic injury, exhibiting symptoms of a blood-related disorder or cancer, so meet with your vet as soon as possible if you notice this.

Tips on taking care of your German Shepherd red rocket

German Shepherd red rockets make contact with dirty and even unsanitary surfaces more often than not. The following are a few tips to keep in mind when caring for your German Shepherd red rocket health.

Be mindful of your GSD’s prepuce

Your GSD’s prepuce (the little furry lump just below its tummy) serves as a protective sleeve for your German Shepherd red rocket and can become infected more easily than the organ it protects. If you notice any rashes or abnormal discharge coming from this area, try washing it with mild soap and cool water; this will help if allergens or irritants are present. If the rashes are severe, the discharge persists for longer than a few days, or if you notice bleeding, head to the vet immediately.

As much as possible, keep your GSD from laying down in dirty, wet or dusty areas.

Erections happening after getting neutered

GSDs can still become erect after being properly neutered or spayed. While this is normal, check for any lumps that may form on its red rocket when aroused. Lumps at the base of the red rocket are normal, while lumps (or growths) that form on the sides of a penis that don’t recede may require a trip to the vet.
