Suggestions welcome She's bundle of energy, which is perfect for my family as we are very active. 3 of us are joggers in half marathons. Of course, long way to go before jogging so I don't damage her growth plates.

here's her parents:
Champion Sired by CH Holly Woods Race The Sun "Trace" X Camee's Don't Ya Tell V Briarwood, "Nakita", CGC, 13 pts/1 major

No pictures yet. Cell too slow, couldn't capture her quick enough; little ball of energy. When she's home, I'll use my camera and then post some.
You give us all hope that people can read the opinions and suggestions of others and make their own decision but one in keeping with the goals of this forum.

Thanks very much and Merry Christmas with Harley

the boys (rip): Cato, Emerald's Black Onyx, Emerald's Black Quartz
Owned by the girls: Enid, Jill (kelpie) and Lana.

I didn't even know dog-friendly 5Ks existed. That's so exciting and great thing to look forward to. St Louis is only 1.5 hrs away, so easy enough. Won't be running for a little while though till her growth plates are closed. Read around 18 months, or can get an X-ray to check earlier. I'll find plenty of things to do with her before then, plus it will give me plenty of time to have her heeling refined.

Let us know if you get one and good luck!

Google "rover runs" and your area... There's a whole sub culture of runners who have canine training partners. It's a small group, but we are out there

PM me if you have questions about a good training plan for you and your dog!

Ears reposted today. Lots of compliments on how pretty she was (thanks Carol!). Harley was also very calm during reposting. I'm giving credit for that to her breeder Carol as that's where all her prior posting was done, and obviously was done in a positive manner with her puppies. Since Harley had a few days without posts, she wouldn't leave them alone, so Harley left the vet with a lovely cone collar for a few days, lol. But it doesn't slow her down any. I hope she won't need it too long though.

By the way, we live in the midwest, and go blasted with snow and cold wind... Harley does not like the bitter cold and refused to budge... so at 330 am, I was carrying her to the potty spot, lol Me in my pjs, coat, boots, and a big 23 pound puppy. Thank goodness for a privacy fence. She went quickly, and we both went back to bed

SInce Harley is my first Doberman, I am amazed each day, with how freaking smart she is! Just have to get past the "shark" part, haha. She's going to be an amazing dog. Of course, we all think that about our Dobermans, right It doesn't take her long to pick up things. Of course, being a puppy, she doesn't always want to do it. My family room is now covered with a dog blanket, lots of toys, chew stuff, water bowel, and the extra wire crate (other one is in my room, by my bed). Reminds me of when my kids were little, and we had toddler toys all over the family room. Now it's puppy toys. Love it!

I'm really glad I found this site.... because of your referrals, I was able to do more research, and found a great breeder in Ohio. After long emails, and several long phone calls, txts, etc... I was able to bring home this beautiful little girl, from a caring, responsible breeder. She had a lot of advice for me, showed me how to do Harleys nails with a drummel vs clipping, and lots of other stuff. And I can contact her anytime. Carol, the breeder, kept some of this litter for showing too. I can't wait to see them grow too.

But again, it was because of this site, that I was able to find her. I've also read a lot of great information for raising my puppy too from prior threads, which was so helpful since this is my first Doberman, and it's been 10 years since I had a puppy (boxer). Knowing about the "shark phase" (which is sooo true) has helped warn me ahead of time this is normal, what to expect, she'll outgrow it, and how to work positively during this phase with her. Many great threads of me to learn from.
