Where to go from here 1yr old Dobi

I feel I don't have to necessarily bring the pup to school if I can use this forum and YouTube to learn all what I need to learn to prep my pup for show .

I'm new to the serious side of dog training. I can naturally make them recall, go in cage, go upstairs , wait for eat command, fetch , take it , sit , down, paws from sitting or lying down. But that's about it. I use a mixture of positive and negative reinforcement. As well as non verbal or semi-nonverbal corrections unearned from dog whisperer. .(for those who hate Cesar Milan , don't read too deep into it ) I mix methods and my dog beys me the best and loves me a lot ! I'm on my first Doberman , but I raised a German Shepard, golden retriever, a westie mix rescue and now another westie before. Never did obedience class and all basically act the same in personality. So there must be a nurturing reason behind all this. Thanks in advanced

find a breed club in your area, see if anyone there is a handler and work with them?

if you want to get into obedience, or conformation etc...............you really do need to join a club in your area........either an all breed club or if possible a Doberman club.

there is much more to 'showing' your dog than just training your dog.

If you really want to give showing a try you will need to work with a club, training school or mentor to help teach you. Showing (conformation) is far more difficult than it seems, and takes a lot of time and skill to be good. If you are not at the top of your game, in the doberman ring you're already behind the ball. Showing is very much a fine art, and presenting your dog to it's best requires knowing all the faults and strengths of your dog according to the standard. Knowing which virtues to show the judge and how to minimize the appearance of your dogs faults is critical.

There are plenty of videos and books out there that talk about the basics of showing, but nothing beats the hands on experience. While novice (newer) handlers do succeed in the Doberman ring it takes a lot of perseverance, thick skin, and hard work as it is one of the toughest breeds to compete in.

Remember that at shows, there are a lot of other dogs, handlers, and activity going on, so its important to train in a similar environment. You can do some things at home, but you'll really need more than that to do well in a show environment.

Also, there's so much involved - its a whole other culture - and you really can't learn any of it by not working with a club, mentor or training facility.

Good luck

I went to a private dog training facility for 27 weeks, back in 1978 for weekly confirmation & OB training (from a professional handler).
- and practiced faithfull one hour/day for the other 6 days/week...redoing drills of all lessons learned
With some early hands on show experience, I puppy trained my 2nd dobe myself and obedience titled her later.
I couldn't imagine much success, without club training, in the early days...it was a great learning experience.
- many people have trouble with "proper timing" and internet/book training won't help everything & cure all

In addition to all previous post recommendations, being a part of club and/or working with mentor is half the fun!! (for both dog and handler)
