Town Hall Topic - Your Daily Routine with your Doberman

How do you interact with your doberman (and other dogs) on a daily basis
  • What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? (Fetch, Frisbee, walks, dog parks, quiet play time together) How do you spend time with them?
  • Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car?
  • How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around?
  • Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.)

  • What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? (Fetch, Frisbee, walks, dog parks, quiet play time together) How do you spend time with them?
We mainly have laid back days. The favorite activity here is to lay back on the couch and chew on a bone. We spend some time running like crazy in the backyard chasing eachother. Some training sessions sporadically during the day. The favorite is still cuddling on the couch.
  • Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car?
They take turns running errands and going on car rides. I always have atleast one dog with me. That is their private time with me. They go to visit everyone and get spoil me time.
  • How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around?
I hate to know the answer to this one. I like to think on the couch.
  • Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.)
All the time. Harmony likes to tell me she is ready to go to bed and crawls in her kennel. If the lights are still on in the other room or the TV is too loud, she comes in and stares at me until they are turned off and the TV is turned down. She likes it quiet and dark in the house. They are also my alarm clocks and wake me up everyday at the same time for work. I don't ever set my alarm clock. They know what days I work and these days we get up at this time and this is what we do on these days. On my days off, we get up a little earlier. They have it down perfectly. I'd never make it to work without them.

My dobie and I keep each other in check. I don't let her get too silly and out of control and she does the same for me

From day one I have tried to keep the training regiment strong and to keep refreshing things on a daily basis (sit/stay/come/down/back/easy/teaching her self control in different situations/socialization), I try to make everything fun and exciting so she doesn't get bored of it.

To keep her teeth and gums healthy and shiny she gets a RMB (raw meaty bone) once a day during the day. She gets a rawhide chewy once a week.

Quote:

8am-Lick my face clean to wake me up, take her outside to do her business, have a little romp play session and come back in to start the hard day being silly again.

9am-Feeding time. Prepare the meats, supplements and put them on her food table. Make her do a sit/stay before allowing her to attack the food. Repeat at 6pm.

During the day she goes out for long walks in intervals of approximately 4 hours. If its too cold or too hot out we don't spend as much time out.

We do approximately 3/4-1mile walk each interval ending each walk with some tennis ball throwing or just playing with other buddies that may be out.

Quote:

Most of the time, if I know she will be in the car for short periods of time.

Quote:

Playing with her toys, looking for ways to get back at me for leaving her home, sleeping.

Quote:

"Daddy what are you still doing sleeping (8am sharp)", and feeding times are the routines that she never fails to forget. She gets long walks 3 times a day and lots of play and exercise in between so doesn't remind me of that (but that doesn't mean she doesn't start bouncing off the walls as soon as the thought occurs in my head).


Great thread topic.

Everyday is differant. The few things that never change are their eating times. They defiinitely will let me know about that.
Fetch is everyday. Training of some kind, but varied. Walks. Car rides, sometimes, depending where I`m going. A dog was stolen from a parked car while the owner was in the grocery store a few years back. This was a very nice area. In Nov. of this year, a couple from up North were shopping and their van was stolen along with their dog. They have put up fliers, worked with a rescue group. Last I heard the dog has not been recovered.
So leaving a dog unattended makes me a little nervous.
Strange habits. the lab brings gifts to people who come to the door--dog toys, bones, whatever he can find. Now Tamora, the dobie does too, but only when we come home.

My day starts about 5:30 to 6:00 am whatever the weather we saddle up and off we go over the fields where they chase rabbits (good exercise) back to the garden for some sit stay work even on the dark winter mornings,then its off to work for me but before i leave i hug and kiss all my pack (wife last of course)then when i return from work we go for another walk over the fields and some more O.B.stuff,then there is training nights and shows so my gang go pretty well everywhere with me.
Anywhere that has "No Dogs Allowed" signs is just not for me,we avoid places like that(although the supermarket is an exception )

[quote=Kratty]How do you interact with your doberman (and other dogs) on a daily basis

[*]What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? (Fetch, Frisbee, walks, dog parks, quiet play time together) How do you spend time with them?
Up at 5am weekdays. Vary the times we leave for a walk due to the whinging from the dobe. Walk on leash for 45 min. OH takes the GSD for a walk/jog as he is dominant and I don't trust him with other big male dogs. Harley plays in the off leash park with the other dogs at this time. Afternoons are cuddle times followed by ball play and a bit of obediance. Weekends is a later start and usually involves a swim at the beach (he only will go in up to his chest). A hose down or full wash every other weekend.

[*]Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car?
No - not allowed in my new car unless its an emergency and our dog car is just to big and cumbersome for me to navigate around the city. Plus it is just way too hot here to leave dogs in a car for any period of time.
[*]How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around.
Sleeps most of the morning (I think) after his exercise. Digs the occasional hole in the garden and play fights with the GSD. If I am home he is glued to my side all day.
[*]Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.)
Harley follows me around the house from 5pm onwards if I am home to let me know it's dinner time. He also sits facing me on the lounge pawing at me if I have not bought his doggie bed in so he can get his pats and cuddles and go to sleep if it is after 7pm.

I bring Diesel to work with me almost every day. I do small residential jobs throughout the city so he is almost always riding with me.

We come across a lot of new parks and other cool places in our travels, so I try and get him out at least once during the day to explore a new place.

If it's really cold or raining, Diesel is quite happy guarding my truck while I go inside the different houses.

He's never really alone, but the few times he is he just relaxes in his bed and chews on a bone or naps.

Then in the evening, it's a either a good walk or goofing around in the back yard.

I hope to one day soon live on an acreage where he can run all day long, but until then thats pretty much my routine.

This is our approximate schdule, of course things differ day to day.
5:45: Sora wakes me up by clicking tonails on wood floor. Then both girls go out for pee, etc. I go to barn with dogs to feed horses.

6:15: Make sure 15 year old daughter is up for school, make human breakfast. The dobergirls play or chew bones

7:00; Off to school, the puppy, Sora always goes with me in the truck where ever I go, unless I'll be in a store too long, I have a bed on the floor in the back seat area, with seats folded up. My senior, Holly, doesnt' really like to get in the truck anymore, She looks at me like "I've already seen it all, I think I'll sleep at home, thank you very much!" Then we run errands.

8:30: breakfast, then a rest for dogs, puppy in crate

9:30: off for a walk on property, off leash. They chase feild mice, rabbits and ground hogs. They also play in the stream, dig under trees etc. Once we get back home, it's time for training with the puppy, about 10 minutes then play time. Then I usually clean house (as little as possible!) or do paper work at my desk, dogs play or chew bones.

12:00 - 1:30: out again for pee, and then nap time for puppy in crate.Senior does what ever she wants, usually sleeps.

3:00 off to pick up at school, and then sometimes we go to petsmart or petco to train and pick up any items we need. In the afternoon I am usually at my desk, dogs play or chew, and go out when ever they want, for the last 10 days I have been trying to teach Sora to ring a bell on front door when she wants out. So far she rings it when I am standing there with my hand on door handle. One time she rang it on her own, but I think it was an accident!

6:00: Go for second walk, feed horses, hang out in barn for a little while.

6:30: Dinner for all, and puppy goes in crate to eat and stays for about an hour.

7:30: out for pee etc, and once back in, dogs play HARD for about 1 12 hours.

1O:00: Puppy in crate for an hour, this start the process of getting her sleepy, then outside

11:30 outside and then cuddle on couch with dogs so puppy stays sleepy. She now sleeps loose on couch all night. So far so good, knock on wood!

Then whole thing starts over again next morning! I love it!
I really don't know how I am going to get the excerize with puppy when snow is deep. any suggestions?

romanfoster will become famous soon enough
Weekdays - up and outside at 6:15 to potty; breakfast at 6:30; Julie - the oldest - gets to hang out with me while I get ready for work and Leo - the youngest - hangs out in his room. Weather permitting they chase squirrels in the backyard until about noon, otherwise, they nap in their rooms until their other mommy gets home from work; long walk around 2:00; a jog around 5:00 then training; dinner at 6:30; chew toys and lounging until bed time at 8:00

Tuesday night - obedience class

Thursday night - cousin Maui (Weimeraner) comes over to play in the yard; Leo and Maui are best friends and can run for hours; their favorite came is to each take one end of a stuffed animal and pull in separate directions until they tear its body in half and strew the stuffing out all over the yard, then they stand around with stuffing hanging from their mouthes and shout "Look at me Mom Look what I did aren't you proud!"

Saturday morning - dog socialization class from 9:00-10:00

On the occasionaly Saturday or Sunday - hiking

Well today I loaded the dogs in the car and we dropped Donnie off at work, then went to Petsmart to shop for BIB's new girl Friday. After that we went to the park and hiked around in the woods for an hour and a half, then they sat in the car while I went grocery shopping. Now they are all hanging out with me in the living room while I type this. In a bit we will dremel everyones toenails and mow the yard together, and Cher will do some obedience in the backyard. Thursdays and Saturdays we have schutzhund club training, and every other Sunday we have race practice (which Cher gets to participate in also).

When we're gone all day at work the dogs are all in their indoor/outdoor kennel runs.

The only time they remind me it's time for something is around dinner time they all start milling around staring at me waiting for food to appear.

  • We get up at 5am during the week, and Koko wakes me up 10-15 minutes before the alarm goes off lol. M/W/F we do a 30 min walk in the morning, 30 minutes with the dogwalker at lunch and 1hr after work. (just not in this recent weather - 15 below). T/TH she is at daycare from 6:45am to 5pm. She gets multiple play sessions, lots of potty breaks and lots of organized interaction with all types of dogs.

    Weekends we do long walks/jobs at the Forest Preserve or the Lake Front (1-2 hrs) and the usual 45 minute walk around where we live. In the summer, we do "pet-friendly" 5K walks and hope to run one someday (working on reaction to squirrels!)

    Other than that, she goes everywhere with me but work and the gym, loves to cuddle and tells me every night at 8pm that it is bed time. This involves letting her sleep on the couch or the bed and wrapping her in a blanket until I got to bed. If I spend too much time on the computer/working/cleaning, I get pawed repeatedly.

    We are VERY routine.
  • Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car?

    Most errands. Thank god for my remote start on my car. The only times she is not brought with me is when I will be a long time or I know she isn't feeling well.
  • How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around?
  • At home, she opens closet doors (bifold), dumps the hamper over and drags my dirty clothes out for the dog walker. She gets two kongs in the morning, and two at night. They are my job to find when I get home and could be anywhere from under the couch or couch cushion to the bathtub. She also barks at a lab mix that lives near us as well. Other than that, she snoozes on the couch while watching the weather channel or listening to jazz. lol
  • Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.)

I can't forget anything - she wakes me up 15 minutes early during the week and by 6am on weekends. Potty is at specific times when she does not have diarrhea. Meals are 5am and 5pm during the week and 7am and 7pm on the weekends (for some reason she snubs food at 5am when I am not getting up for work). Walks too - our evening walks are within 30 minutes of her dinner, and I will be reminded 100x if I am slow or forget

How do you interact with your doberman (and other dogs) on a daily basis

* What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? (Fetch, Frisbee, walks, dog parks, quiet play time together) How do you spend time with them?

7AM: Hear Bella whining. Let her out to do make a 'hurry up'. When she returns (about 5 minutes) feed her breakfast. She goes out again, to do 'big business'. While I make my breakfast, she visits the other dog, 'talks' to me while I make my breakfast. Sleeps at my feet, while I eat. I give her last couple of bites. She chews on bones, etc., while I read email, pay bills, catch up on DT, etc.

9AM: We head out for our first hike, walk in the woods. She runs free for about one half hour, then we practice commands and lately working on 'heel' a lot. Then, a session of Frisbee, for about a half hour, then a little walk on leash.

11AM: She goes with me in the car to run errands; the market, longs, etc. She waits in the car for me. She has a Hammock and a bed in the backseat. She loves the window down to 'sniff' what's going on.

12-1PM: We come home to do chores. She follows me around and plays. We goof around a lot, practice commands, etc.

3PM: We head out again for a walk either at the harbor, in the woods, or down by the beach. Sometimes more errands. She pretty much goes where I go.

5PM: Feed her dinner. If I have a meeting to go to, she goes with me. Or if not, she plays with toys, we play fetch, she sleeps on floor, on my hassock. We have OB class once a week, so on those days I try to give her lots of exercise before those at 6:30. She sleeps in her crate at night. We go to bed together at about 10PM, then when her Dad comes to bed at about 11:30, he puts her in her crate for the night.

* Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car?
Yes.
* How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around?

I got laid off at work. Actually, it's worked out o.k., as now I get to be with her all the time, and as she is still a puppy (8 months) so it's been good for us.

I bicycle 4 x's week, for about one hour and she is in her crate. I have to go outside to my laundry room. I leave her alone in the house for 10-15 minutes at a time and I've never had a problem to come back to. She is usually laying down by the gate, waiting for me to come back.

* Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.)

Just feeding times and 'time to go to bed'.

Of course, these are approximates as each day is not exactly alike, but this is pretty much the routine.

What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? (Fetch, Frisbee, walks, dog parks, quiet play time together)I get up, they get up. We sit around the house and have a cup of coffee, then we go let the chickens out, grab an armfull of wood and go have another cup of coffee. Then we all have breakfast. After that we decide what chores to do for the day. If I go outside, they go outside, if I stay in, they stay in too. How do you spend time with them? We spend time together 24/7, I am their companion as they are mine.
Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car? I rarely go to town. Given a choice we would all rather stay home!
How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around?If I have to walk out to get the bus, they stay in an outside run or they have the house, with the door open and have the 'house' yard to go out in.
Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.) YES.........FEED me it is time right now!!! hahaha

DobermanDobbie will become famous soon enough
I talk to Dobbie like an ordinary person. When I am from work and away from him, he usually just sleep, eat, or play with the cat of my sister. They have a good bonding.

My day starts at 6:00 AM with taking Princess for a leisurely walk around the neighborhood, then breakfast (1st hers then mine) and a little cuddle time, then I'm off to work at 8:00.
While I'm gone Princess continues her perpetual game of tag with my 4 yr old son Josh and supervises my wife Regina doing the laundry.
I get home at 2:00 PM and after being greeted like I was gone for years, and having my face washed, I feed her lunch and then it's usually nap time. My secondary occupation is Dobe pillow.
Around 4:00 when it starts to cool off we go out and have a long walk, train, and play in the church yard across from my house. Then its back to the house for more fun with my son.
At 7:00 she gets her last meal and is usually winding down and we take a final slow stroll around the neighborhood at 9:00 before bed.
If I get distracted from this general schedule I am quickly reminded that I'm forgetting something. As for errands she will walk to the corner store with me but she gets car sick and has decided that the 4 wheeled things are yucky.

Schedule

What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? No big routine here. We all get up around 1030. Hugo lays in the sun on the porch until breakfast. Cats and dog are fed and toileted while OUR breakfast is being prepared. After dishes are cleared, Hugo and I have some sort of 'school session' and then play catch for about 20 minutes. Hugo is toileted again, and then settles onto the couch for a nap while I'm on the computer.
Afternoon and evenings vary... As a service dog, Hugo goes where I go with few exceptions. I will NOT take him into a beauty salon/spa -- WAY TOO SMELLY, or small social events -- HE'S STILL A LITTLE YOUNG, AND BORES QUICKLY. But, he goes to the grocery store, on various shopping excursions, when we dine out, zoos and amusement parks, the beach, hotels, etc. We try to wander around someplace 'fun for him' each time we're out. Lunch is usually served in the crate whether we're at home or in the car. If we've been gone all day, then after a potty break at home, we have another 20 minute game of catch and some tugging before dinner. Dog and cats eat first, so we can eat our meal in peace, if we're dining at home. Otherwise, dinner may be later than normal (for all animals) if we're out late. After Hugo's dinner he toilets and then curls up on the couch - usually scooting high up into my lap, making it impossible for me to do ANYTHING but admire his beautiful head! He rouses about 2300 for our walk - about 1 mile. (If we're at home all day, we may have 3 or 4 walks totalling 4-12 miles - who knows!?!) Bedtime is around 0100 with lights out around 0200.

How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around? Hugo stays in his wire kennel, in the livingroom, if we're at a small social function (one to two hours) - he stays in the car (weather permitting) for trips to the beauty parlor/spa. For longer stints, he goes to PetSmart's day care. He loves it, and they love him We try to make it a FULL day for him because he has so much fun! - he's really zonked when he gets home - it's straight to the couch - period!!

Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.) No, only the cats seem to care about schedules. Hugo just knows what I'm going to do next

The schedule

What is your daily routine with your Dobermans? (Fetch, Frisbee, walks, dog parks, quiet play time together) How do you spend time with them?
When we 1st got Oliver he wasn't a morning guy, he realized if he got up at 4 AM with me, he could have his breakfast. Now that I'm retired he lets me sleep until 5 AM most days, not always though. We go to the park about 6:30 since it's light now. We stay for about an hour, he has several girl friends. They play ball and he chases them. Then we go home and he has his morning nap. Lunch at noon, then afternoon nap. About 3:30 he's ready to go to the park again. Different girl friends in the afternoon. Dinner after we get home and cool down. He' out again the rest of the night except to go out 1 more time.
Are they included in running errands, car rides even if they just stay in the car?
Always take him with us, we have never left him home. If we don't take him he goes to daycare.
How does your Doberman spend their time, when you are not around?
One of us is always with him or daycare.
Do they have specific routines that they remind you to do things on their schedule? (Specific goody time, play time, etc.)
Walks and eating are always on schedule (his)!

On my days off work, are the times that are really interesting:

Wake up, let Chase out to pee, or lately he has been skipping potty time and just sits in front of the door so he can eat his breakfast. Feed AM meal, and let him out to actually go potty.

I do some house/yard work, he follows me around like a shadow. Says hello to the cats and other roommates.

If its a nice day ill go to the park and let him off leash to explore, then do a bit of obedience. Or ill make a small road trip to his Husky friend Jack, where they spend hours pouncing on each other.

At home i then let him pee again, or sunbathe. Then i challenge him with trick training (we are working on a trick where the dog limps), or other mental games.

I like to keep his socialization with humans as level as possible, so i like to travel with him. I take him on buses, subways, pet friendly stores, ferries, down town, dog events, and every time i take him somewhere, he blossoms into this lovely outgoing dog.

In the evenings we go for a 2 hour walk, through woods, side streets, and parks.

I mix up the walking with some biking, to add some speed.

Let him out to pee again, give him his PM meal, and a bone to chew on.

Before i go to bed he snoozes by my feet while i read whats on DT, then its off to bed.

We like to go on hikes in the forest and walks at the park. We also do doggie day care on weekdays and have a petsitter visit on weekends if I have to work. We love going to the petstore and do obedience classes. At home we usually relax and chill. Often a fun game of fetch or tug between my two dogs. Henry runs errands with me a lot; he knows my family, the oil change place, the convenience store, the vet, and many others. His only routine he reminds me of so far, is outside in the morning and a pigs ear at night. He does walk to the bed or couch when he is tired and throw his front paws up to let me know. He'll kennel up on mornings I have to work and the petsitter is due, but always reluctantly.

hi

It is First Edition, 1953. This hardcover book has beautiful images of stamps from around the world with dogs on them inside the front and back cover. The pages with photos contain black and white pictures from some of dogs that made the breed what it is today.
