No Dobes Running In The House!

Dobegal Fallon likes to run in house and jump over couch, according to owner Randy B......




Fallon was "completely unfazed and is doing fine"


Fallon will surely steer clear of glass tables in her foreseeable future. I call this the "Dobe Baby Gate" syndrome...
Once Dobes knock down a baby gate and get scared to death, they respect them for rest of their lives.... (at least ours do)

Wow!



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.

Ah yes, because I rely so heavily on babygates and because I don't really want to take the time to properly fasten them into the doorways, every puppy gets the same 'instant training in my house. I prop them loosely in a door way with the puppy inside the room--and walk away--almost instantly there is a crash and I go back to find a bewildered puppy asking "Wha' was that?"

Usually it only takes once but there is one gate that separates the 'dining room from the living room" (open layout sort of) and some pups don't recognize that as a 'baby gate and they might try that one once--it's even scarier because it tends to fall down on them (but slowly so they can actually get out of the way before it lands. It's the last time they try that one too.

So they stand behind the baby gates and watch the cats jump them--sadly, because they never figure out how come the gate didn't fall down.

The cats won't explain and just smirk.

Pretty amazing video...

My favorite baby gate story?
Puppy Capri took out a metal gate once with a horrendous clatter. Kip took to the hills. She just stood there in the middle of the tangle, wiggling her rump with an expression on her face that said "COOL!!"

But those childhood experiences do stick with them.

My first dobe knocked his sore right-after-cropping ears against the bottom of a piano bench when he went after a toy at high speed. To me, he always seemed a bit reluctant to dive under furniture with low clearance after that.

I can't even watch it.

We use the white plastic lattice from Home Depot to block off rooms/areas. Willie has knocked it over a couple times, and when it hits the hardwood it makes a big smack noise, that scares the crap out of him. Now if one of his toys rolls near the lattice he comes running to mummy to get it because he won't go near it.

This was years ago, Zuri took out the back sliding glass door screen and here she’d been running around outside and ran and jumped up on Matt and knocked them both to the ground. She just sat there like “What do we do now” lol.

Stuff like that is why you only use tempered glass for furniture. If that had been plate glass, it could have resulted in a really serious injury.

That's nearly identical to Sypha and Richter. Richter is horrified by and respectful of gates. Sypha thinks they are fun to climb and knock over.

In terms of the video - Sypha punched through a plate glass french door to our back porch as a pup...it was horrifying. Thank goodness she was uninjured. She looked at us like we were nuts as we hustled her to her crate and had to clean up glass, secure the pane she had punched out, and then, of course, replace that door with a metal door....

Oh I know that expression on her face, she really felt bad about it.
I'm really glad she's ok. Could probably go for a good back rub though.

Aunt Bug - I love to watch the Agility ! The work and the bond between the dog and handler is unreal ! I love how the dog watches the handler - the eye contact from the dog watching where the handler wants him to go , Love it !

Now as far as Mr. B and me doing Agility - I'm still laughing my azz off ! You Talking about a guy who can't remember which foot to start off on in Rally --- let alone try and remember which jump or tunnel to run threw , then there is the knee deal - lol Poor Mr. B would be waiting a hour on me - lol Now if I was younger -- No ---- Lets make that LOTS younger - Oh yeah baby - We would be in there


I have to be honest here Aunt Bug - But If I was going to do agility ( maybe you should sit down first ) I would have either a Boarder Or a Aussie to do it with - I love them 2 breeds - for years we had a Aussie ,Dober pair - they were lots of fun .

Dogs are so funny. Ilka wouldn't have dreamed of jumping over a baby gate in the house, yet thought nothing of clearing my 6' tall fence in a single leap. Leo has never tried to climb the fence, but thinks nothing of knocking down a baby gate inside.

And both Ilka and Lucky went through separate sides of an over-sized sliding patio window (regular glass, not tempered) at my in-laws' house. Ilka escaped with only a minor cut that, while it might have benefited from a stitch or glue, healed up with just being bandaged. Lucky required seven stitches.

Oops! Glad he’s okay!

On the baby gate topic...when Rizzo was 3 or 4 months old she jumped our pretty tall baby gate and landed on a table with a glass top, fortunately it didn’t break but I knew right then and there she was going to be a handful!

I can’t remember why she was separated, probably bc hubby was doing something and couldn’t keep a close eye on her, but I do remember her being very upset! I wish I would have gotten the video clip, she used the wall to spring herself over the the gate! She’s too smart for her own good....

You Talking about a guy who can't remember which foot to start off on in Rally --- let alone try and remember which jump or tunnel to run threw , then there is the knee deal - lol Poor Mr. B would be waiting a hour on me - lol Now if I was younger -- No ---- Lets make that LOTS younger - Oh yeah baby - We would be in there


I have to be honest here Aunt Bug - But If I was going to do agility ( maybe you should sit down first ) I would have either a Boarder Or a Aussie to do it with - I love them 2 breeds - for years we had a Aussie ,Dober pair - they were lots of fun .
You should see some of the really talented handlers run Dobermans--they are practically the only breed that can beat out Border Collies. Aussie are a lot slower but generally really good workers just not as blazing fast as Border Collies or Dobes.

For some reason the Pacific Coast seems to be Doberman Central when it comes to agility. The rest of the country you mostly see a few Dobes but around her there are always several Dobes in any Agility trial.

Toad would have been the perfect dog for you to run in agility--sometimes he'd decide to take a time out to visit people in the ring--the judge, the timekeeper, the scribe or even whoever was leash holder at the entrance. You'd had have enough time to limp after him.

I like Aussies--my Aussie (Henry) was the plaything for 13 years of Dobe puppies--he had infinite patience with the rowdy Dobe puppies and tolerated being dragged around by them and kept them entertained.

I like agility a lot too--and if you think you can convince me that you couldn't remember the course I'd like to point out I'd take a lot of convincing since I know you can back huge trucks into loading areas. And make combines go in straight lines.

The bum knee and the limp are better excuses but I should point out that the very first agility trial I went to there was a girl on crutches directing her dog through the entire Advanced Rally course from the center of the ring--that was really something to behold.

I really enjoy agility, and I know a LOT of people with border collies. There is NO WAY I'd ever own one, lol! Those are dogs that are clearly, clearly meant to work all day. I simply couldn't provide them the life they need. I really love Aussies, too...I might be able to give one what they need...maybe. But again, they really are bred for a lifestyle that many people can't provide. I see sooooooo many people with those breeds who really struggle to meet their needs. I admire them tremendously but I don't think I could do it.

They sure do excel at the sport, though!

There aren't nearly as many Dobes running agility around here. It seems like people do seem to get breeds specifically for the sport, sometimes, and that often isn't a Dobe. We have some, and some that are super talented, but they aren't as common. Then again, we simply don't have tons and tons of Dobermans in MN, either.

I’ve had a rough way to go with it, I got tendonitis in my IT band that caused bursitis, which is extremely painful. I had a pain injection and the bursa drained, which helped for a bit then the tendonitis flared up again, they sent me to therapy which didn’t help. For months I had pain everyday, the last month or two has been a lot better, most days I have little to no pain but some days (today) i have moderate pain but for the most part I have more good days then bad days so that’s good I guess. I stopped seeing the doctor, long story short I didn’t like the care I was receiving from him so I’m basically managing it on my own. Thanks for checking on me! ❤️❤️❤️
