Generally they can get along well with family and other pets and are not generally dog aggressive. They should be introduced to newcomers, since they are territorial, but will quickly warm up to those the family accepts. This is an excellent, courageous, alert watchdog who will bark at strange noises and intruders. They are slow to mature, both physically and mentally. “Puppyhood” may last 2-3 years.

Prone to bloat and hip dysplasia. Many GSMDs have distichiasis, a condition in which extra eyelashes grow along the edge of the eyelid. These extra lashes can curl inward and scratch the eye. Though the condition may not pose any problem, it sometimes requires surgical correction. Some lines have incidences of epilepsy and digestive disorders. To minimize the risk of your GSMD developing any hereditary health issues, you should buy a dog from a reputable breeder.


They will do okay in an apartment if sufficiently exercised and a small yard is sufficient. They prefer cool climates.
