Yeah, she sounds like a normal Doberman.

More physical and mental exercise will be good for all of you

Thanks for all your responses. That makes me feel better about Star and understand she is pretty normal. My first doby was a puppy 25 years ago when I was much younger and didn't have kids. I remember her mellowing out a lot at 2 years. I took Star out tonight on my bike and did several laps at our local park. The bike might be one way to get her more activity.

Thanks Again,

Actually, at 7 months forced exercise (jogging with you be it while you're on foot or alongside a bike) is a bad idea. It's hard on the joints and the growth plates that are still forming. I'd take her to an enclosed field (like a baseball field or something) and allow her to run around off leash. Chase her, play fetch, etc. The difference is taht this way she can start and stop and turn whenever she wishes instead of running repeatedly along side you - something she may be happy to do but she cannot start and stop on her own.

No dog is at fault for being born into this world.

Find a place where she can safely blow off steam, at her pace and by her choice.
