I know what you mean Mel - lol He takes better pics with this phone than I can with a camera - lol

Mr. B is a read off the leash dog as well = most of the time - it was my fault - he was reading me - was probably the best lesion I have learned .

It may be because we live in the country - some days - very few cars go by here So - the 2 get excited - when any thing go's by - Motorcycles ! Harleys ! get them the most jacked up . We have a National Guard air unit based near Shelbyville , Mainly Blackhawks - As all choppers - they have there own sound and boy do they know when one is coming over - lol They run out doors and then only bark a couple of times then just watch them fly over - We do have a local friend that is a pilot there and sometimes - he will come over and then circle around the house = Jacked up real high for them 2

Sand Hill cranes -- in the fall and spring ! Drives Ali girl nuts ! She hears that sound they make --- WAY - before we can and she wants out ! NOW - lol I told a friend one day about it and he said no way - he was laughing hard - I then pulled up a you tube of sounds by the sand hill - girl jumped up and went nuts - he couldn't believe it - then wife called in --- KEN ! Shut that damn thing off - lol

TN - You have a great girl - 4 sure !

I work a schedule where I get every other Friday off, and since I'm off this Friday and Monday is a holiday, I strategically took off today and tomorrow which gives me a 6-day weekend So of course, Mocha and I were out of the house at 7 today for a nice 4-mile early morning hike in the park. It's funny; the first loop (2 miles of up and down hills), Mocha stays ahead of me, not pulling, but eager to go go go, but after we got into the 2nd loop, she's had enough and falls back into a nice loose-leash heel. Here are a few iPhone pics:

Am I the only one on here that thinks show off are JERKS ????? lmao !

I will have to give the Atta Boy for this week TN - Great thinking on your part on the 6 days off ! Really glad to see you use your head for more than just someplace to put your hat ! lmao - I'm sorry - but I'm on a roll blowing you crap !

Can't leave with out one of my stories ! Back in the mid 70's - I was working at a Fertilizer plant here in town - I got 3 weeks paid vacation + 2 unpaid - Yes - I was that good - lol anyway I asked the plant manager if there was any
restrictions on how I took my vacation time - he said no , use it anytime you want - other than in busy season - which I knew that - SO I took every Monday and Friday off - lmao ! That was great - only working 3 days a week - Management didn't think as highly of that as I did - the next year - they wouldn't let me do that

Great Pictures btw ! Mocha ! What a girl !

In my current job, I accrue 8 hours vacation per 2-week pay period, so 16 hours per month, plus we get 4 hours (or 8 hours per month) sick leave as well. We're also allowed a flex work schedule, I work 9 hours per day, and then the first Friday is an 8-hour day, and the following Friday is my day off. I kinda like it

Most days, when we hike and come across others with dogs, they'll shorten their leash as I shorten mine, and we both move over to the side of the trail, and no fuss, no muss. No growling, no hackles raised, and all is well in the world. But...every now and then, you get that one person. Like this morning. A lady was coming toward us with a huge white shaggy sheep dog, and I saw she had about 5 feet of loose leash, and right where we were going to meet, the trail was about 2 feet wide. A recipe for disaster. So I did something I haven't had to do in quite the while, I moved about 3-4 feet off trail so they could pass. What did she do?

She stopped right there, to tell me how beautiful Mocha was, with still 5 feet of leash loose and her big pooch is coming right at Mocha, who started growling. I stood in front of Mocha and had to tell the lady that I wasn't trying to be rude but that my dog wasn't comfortable with strange dogs coming right at her and to please pull her dog back so we could keep moving. I know she meant well, but a little common sense would go a long way. I've come so far with Mocha, the last thing I need is any kind of setback, and I know how fast that can happen.

TN - Be "N" that your one of my favorite posters on here - I will tell you one of the things I learned in Mr. Business's Group OB class's -- FREE of charge !!!!!! Yep = you read that right Free !

The trainer said to not let Mr. B start to stare at the other dog - dogs - I guess I had not noticed it till she pointed it out - I then started to pay better attention to the job at hand - One time we walked in - there was a Healer and he started to give Mr. B the eye and he picked right up on it and started a low growl I immediately turned him and got his attention else wear - it only took a sec - but I was still slow to pick it up - I finally got the hang of it - well better - when another dog is around or were meeting - no eye contact if I can help it - He is better now but far from perfect .


This problem with him around other dogs has it's problems - I was thinking at first nose work next in training - now leaning to more OB classes - I read about Good citizen - I think as of today - he would pass that class - well all but one part --- Must be good around other dogs = we would probably fail

One other thing - this may be a first ------ No Pictures of Mocha ??? you feeling OK buddy ??? lol

Ken,

Believe it or not, Mocha passed her Good Citizen test. Not sure if she got used to the other dogs in that class, or what, but she did me proud. And, she was the best at staying when I left the building we were using for the class. Matter of fact, just to see how well she would stay, the trainer had me tell her to lay down, and stay, and then had me go out the door and stay outside for 10 minutes. They said Mocha never moved a muscle, just laid there and stared at the door, waiting for me to come back.

Mocha's biggest issue is dogs that suddenly come towards her. As long as they mind their business and keep walking, she pretty much ignores them for the most part. It's the ones that are aggressive, that suddenly lunge at her, or the ones that want to run at her to play or meet her, those are the ones she has problems with. She's a lot like me in that regard; we both like our personal space

Alright, since you asked LOL





Thank God she stops to smell the flowers from time to time, otherwise I'd probably pass out ha ha


After 4 miles of going up and down hills, we're both tuckered out and ready to head on home!


And a bonus clover!

Woot!

Man... I remember your posts from a few years ago about Mocha's uncontrollable reactivity to other dogs. What a wonderful transformation.

So congrats to her (and of course you!)

Any plans for the future?

We're still a work in progress, John, and she may never be a dog that can be approached by everyone or every dog but...that's ok. My goal wasn't to create Lassie, all I wanted was a dog that could go on walks without getting all stressed out every time she saw another person or dog, because obviously, she wasn't enjoying her walks.
I'll tell you, it has been a pure joy though to get to this point and seeing the gradual progress in this girl. We've both learned things and have come a long way, together, which is the cool part. No outside trainer, just us two, learning as we go.

I’m ok Frank, thanks for asking. Still missing Indy, the house is so quiet. We did have our grand dog for a week and it was very therapeutic.

Awesome morning! Mocha woke me up around 5:30 (on my day off!!!) so we were on the road by 6:30 to hit the park. This time I brought my old Canon 70D and I also remembered to use bug spray on both of us; the horse flies are getting bad. As you can see, it was pretty dark in the woods, I used the popup flash on all the pics I took to at least get a little light in the scenes but you can only do so much with horrible lighting. And best thing? We finally went for 6 miles this morning, and yeah, I was feeling it because Mocha goes at that "let's test daddy's heart" pace LOL. 6 miles in 1 hour, 23 minutes. Smoking, baby, smoking

It was another very productive and interesting hike though. We met joggers, a few people walking their dogs, and people just out for an early morning walk and Mocha gets better each time we go out. I know I'm being Mr. Obvious here, but repetition and frequency are so important; none of this would be working if I only took Mocha for a hike once every 6 months. Every day I'm off work, we hit the trails and over time, I've seen her stress level decrease more and more. Very seldom do I feel the need to shorten the leash or move to the side when people or people with dogs come our way - BUT, I always watch her body language as they're approaching so I can start distracting her or move off trail if necessary.

Here's a selfie from last Sunday after we finished our 4 miles; that morning the heat and humidity were brutal and as you can see, I had the fogged up glasses to prove it and I looked like I was about to pass out while Mocha was happy as could be and looked like she was ready to go another 4.


And here are a few pics from this morning

I think she does look more relaxed.

Now you just have to keep up with the 6 mile stroll for her.

Oh heck no, that was a one time deal. From now on we're doing our regular 4 miles. Maybe once it starts cooling down some in late September, we'll revisit the 6-mile idea LOL. And yes, she absolutely loves our hikes. I truly wish I could do it every morning with her, what a great way to start off the day Anyone want to let me hold a few million dollars?



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.

That's part of what makes it a good picture.

Entitled:
What We Do to Please our Dobermans or
The Price of Owning a Doberman or
The Master and his Man

In only one picture, you've highlighted the different exercise needs of dog and human.

We need to put it in our Newcomer's Forum to show people what it is like to have a Doberman in their household.

Ha, I love all 3 but I personally would rename the 2nd one to The Rewards of Owning a Doberman


I doubt I'd be out in that heat if she didn't live for these hikes, and as a bonus, I'm getting some much-needed exercise. Win-win, all around

Now we need your permission to start a thread with your picture....Exhaustion is a Dobe's Second Name

I bet we'd have lots of submissions.
