Hi Heather and welcome to DT , btw -- From Indiana
I have read your post several times , there are many things that catch my eye , first I will start with Rem's eye problem , We farm here in Indiana and have had one eyed cattle before , most from pink eye , so to make this simple , cover one of your eyes and try to look around , there is a big blind spot isn't there ? With our cattle , when trying to move them to a different pasture , we always had to keep on the side of there good eye , when we didn't it would spook them , we appeared out of nowhere to them , this may be what is happening to sweet girl , blind sided and spooked some .
Personally , I think the dog park is a bad idea , but that's just me . Dogs are like people , we don't always get along with each other , I don't trust what the other dog may do or how it was raised .
This part of your post does bother me and I quote : I dont think she would ever intentionally hurt the dog, or any other dog by trying to assert herself.
Dogs are dogs ! Even the best trained can be tripped up , they may feel threatened , by dog or people , For the most part with Remi , being edgy , I would be more proactive with her and keep some distance until she settles down some
By chance - is it only you and Remi ? when she gets between you and or what ever , she is just protecting her love , that's her job to her , she is glued to your side , Yep , you got a true to the bone Doberman ! lol
Snapping at the air , I have no idea about that , other than its her way to talk to yeah , Mr. Business sometimes gives me a kiss on the chin and he has started to sort of lick and snip at the same time , lol im guessing some kind his way of saying dad I love yeah , lol
sorry about that , had to post early , lol just about lost everything here , my token must have run out .
Anyway , I do have a few questions , Have you took Remi to any OB classes ? And do you ever socialize her , other than the dog parks , like is there any family that stops by ? I thinking probably not , my reason is that may be why she is so nervous around others . Now Mr. B has been a challenge for me . He has been to 2 OB classes and that really helped , but its the other dog , the one that is on one of them dang retract leads and its all the way out on it and runs at him , or they start barking at him , either is not good . but were still working on this .
Lots of what your wrote sounds like a Doberman , glued to your side , sleeps on top of you , in-between your legs , so really don't think she is that abnormal , lol
But like all the others have stated , I won't be taking her to places that trip her trigger , not yet anyways . She is still a pup , as they mature , they do chance . Hang in there and best of luck
