Want a mature Family Protection Doberman
Hi Dobe Lovers
My name is Mark and I live in London.
My family had a pet Doberman back in Australia and I love the breed!
Me and my fiancé have recently moved to London.
My fiancé was recently mugged at knifepoint during her walk home, and this is a horrifying experience and she has PTSD from that.
She is scared to be alone and scared to go out after dark, she's completely changed after the mugging, I haven't seen her smile since!
A psychiatrist recommended us to get a therapy dog, and "light bulb moment", why cant we get a therapeutic family protection dog?
I want her to feel safe ASAP and I am busy with work, so I want to explore the option of getting an older (6-12 months) Doberman that's already had obedience and protection training.
I want to hear the community's thoughts on this, will it be a good idea to get an older dog that's well trained?
Im scared that it wont have the same bond as a puppy grew up with us.
Please share your opinion!
Thank you very much!
