From what I have heard, the tail and ears were cropped so there were fewer grabbing points - the Doberman was bred as a protection animal, ie expected to confront assailants, who would likely try to defend themselves. So it made sense to crop and dock. If you look at the original doberman pics the ears were very shortly cropped.

These days I believe it is mostly done for the looks, especially ears - the ear crops are now long and elegant.

There are people for and against docking and/or cropping and both sides have their reasons - in my country cropping has been banned a long time and docking from sometime last year. We have some funny looking puppies around! (Dogs traditionally docked have not been bred with long tails in mind...) you can do a google search -a number of breeds have been cropped and/or docked (great danes, pit bulls, bull terriers, boxers, staffies to name a few).

Congrats!

I personally love the look of a natural dobe. Plus, posting can be such a PITA! It's probably my least favorite part of puppyhood (other than the POOOOOOP)

She's adorable. She'll grow into the ears, too!

Thank you all, and I love the pics Heather00102!! I forgot to mention that the "velcro" characteristic doesn't stop when you are walking through the house either. Look out behind you for the doberpoke! I'm sure you'll know what I mean soon enough!!

Once you go doberman you never go back!

Welcome...your girl is adorable and I love the name Hudson, so cute! As for therapy dogs, like Zelda said, there are lots on here. Some of the bigger organizations are Delta and TDI (Therapy Dogs International). You can look up the requirements on their websites. There are also a lot of smaller private programs run through hospitals, etc.

Rowan recently took the TDI evaluation and it was only about 5 items more than the CGC, including things like walking over food and being able to leave it and being around medical equipment/people with wheelchairs/walkers or unsteady gait, etc. There is an age requirement, I think one year. Here...I just dug up the link to TDI...you can find all of that here:
Therapy Dogs International

Dobes are awesome, they can do it all!

Unhappy

You guys are so VERY helpful. I am so glad i came upon this site! I have caught the bug of the dobbie breed. I have never seen such a loving breed. My Hudson is very loving himself and he also is a very gentle soul like Miley has those soft love me eyes. They are such a great match. Today i had my first negative experience with people when it comes to Miley. I am use to getting comments with Hudson such as he is a terrible monster to put him down which kills me cause he is the most gentle baby ever!!!!!! My boyfriend has four children and they climb all over him and he just licks their faces. Today was a kick though. I was walking downtown like i always do mainly because i want her to get use to sounds and smells and people without getting scared. Some lady told and i quote " you own two dangerous dogs and are walking them downtown you musst be ****ed up in the head think of all the people you are dangering." I simplely replied MA'AM i dont know you nor do i want to you are a very closed minded person and it saddens me actually. My dogs do not judge you so how is it you cna judge them and i walked away not even a minute later alil boy came over and pat both my dogs as they licked his face she just stared me down. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO MAD. I almost cried (sounds over dramatic i knowbut they are my children my babies and i couldnt believe someone saying soemthing like that). ppl really make me sad.

I and another DT member were walking in a group with our boys of a total of 5 dobie puppies in the local park one day, and a group of older women (mind you we were at the end of our walk) came from the parking lot in a group and stopped in front of us. They asked about the pups and seemed to be intrigued.

Well, when we introduced them as puppies and that 3 out of the 5 were related, one of them curtly commented "Oh no... we only like the one with the floppy ears. How could you do that to your dogs, how cruel of you." (The other 4 had their ears cropped).

If it came down to genetics they were looking at the most poorly bred one out of the bunch.

Also, I was walking around a pet store the other day and their dog training class had let out. As one of the students (an older couple with a ugly, squatty pit mix) turned into my isle, my puppy was alert, wagging his nub and play bowing to the other dog the older man said "Oh no, that dog will do you in, boy!" and they quickly turned around and ran out the door... mind you my boy is 7 months old and wouldn't hurt a fly.

People are ridiculous. Don't let it phase you. You have an awesome breed of dog- I own a pitty girl too. I have gotten terrible responses to a pitty I owned a few years back.

Just try to educate the closed minded, who probably don't have a pet because they are too stuck up.

And just remember: It must hurt when they sit down... with that stick up their a**.

She is SO CUTE and her name fits. Sounds like you have a real sweety on your hands - lucky you! Train her a little every day and you won't have a problem with the Therapy Dog evaluation when the time rolls around. Most areas also have classes to help you teach the skills needed to do therapy work. Keep us posted on her training as she grows up!

I had to get used to the negative reactions to Jasmine. Jasmine is a social butterfly and LOVES people and other animals. She's very gentle and friendly. I was at the vet once and a lady with her terrier wouldn't come in because she didn't like "that" dog. If only she knew doberman come from the terrier ha! It's also amazing how many people have unfriendly dogs these days ha! Whenever we encounter a dog on our walks, I say she's friendly, and an increasing amount of dog owners respond with how theirs isn't. STRANGE! I've also had many many positive experiences. A little girl at the park last week ran up to her and started petting her. There interaction was so precious!
Needless-to-say, some of the negative reactions bothered me at first, but now I just laugh because man, if they only knew what big babies dobes can be! I never bought into the stereotypes because I've always had what people call "dangerous breeds," but it's so funny to me because dobermans are absolutely NOTHING like what people perceive. I say turn the negative reactions into a positive. You're a young female, and when you're out with your dobe, people probably won't mess with you!!

Today is a new day and i am trying to let it not get to me. I go a tough skin when it came to people saying it about Hudson. Even my mom was scared of Hudson when she met him mind you my boy is 83lbs and when i first got him had barely any training. Now he is one the most polite dogs ever still deosnt know hiw power needless to say my mom ADORES this dog and Miley. Wont come over without a treat for them and always brings them places when we spend the day together. But i was still a litle taking back yesterday. Specailly with Miley just being so lil and darn precious looking. How could anyone be scared??!


Anyways on some brighter notes. She is such a smart little peanut. She already knows her basics it only took her a cple minutes to learn them when we first taught it. Today i taught some more basic things mainly to wait for her treat until i tell her to and she now knows roll over little things i know but i was so darn excited and so wasnt she! lol once i said good girl she started to jump up and down she is like a lil rabbit with that which i think is so adorable my bf not so much lol. she doesnt jump on people just jumps up in excitement when she knows she has done good

I've had people be stupid too. One time, I was walking Gin (my old Dobie mix) and Lucky, (my Rattie). Someone asked what kind of dogs the were, so I said "The big one is a Doberman mix, and the little one is a Rat Terrier." Person's eyes got big, and they said something to the effect that Gin, being part Dobe, was scary. I just told them that the Rattie was more likely to bite them.

I was walking Lucky, Ilka and Leo one day, when someone started talking to me about how much they just loved GSD, they were great dogs, etc, etc. I was like, yeah, she's nice, and I'm glad I was able to rescue her, but I really want a Doberman. He said "Dobermans are dangerous". I just said that NOTHING was more dangerous than a spoiled rotten Chihuahua, and left.

It is depressioning how little people know and how much the judge anyways. Not even a week ago i was walking Hudson alone ( I walk them alone atleast three tiems a week for quality time) and he got scared of two chihuahuas who bit at his face he ran ebhind me just giving me his eyes! I have onloy seen Hudson mean once and he was protecting me from some guy who grabbed my arm and was followin me he turned around and growled at the guy and went after his leg! I have two "dangerous" breeds that wouldnt hurt a fly lol
