Hi from Oklahoma

I've been checking in on the forum for a while and finally wanted to register. I got my baby Hildegard about 18 months ago when she was 18 months old. I had never known a Doberman, so I had no idea if my doofy dog who cried if she was alone was some horrible abuse case. After reading a few posts I realized that she was just slightly needy on the Doberman scale.

We got her from our neighbors - who at least realized they were neglecting her. They probably got her from a BYB (Oklahoma, the puppy mill/byb capital)- she somewhat fits the German Doberman standard in body, but would be laughed out of an American show ring. She is clipped, cropped, and 85 lb with rippling muscles.

I have PTSD, so Hilde has become my unofficial service dog. We don't go out together (carsick doggie), but she stays at my side and sleeps next to me at night. I am an inexperienced trainer, but she is very attentive to me and is easy to train because she is motivated to please me. She even learned that the cats were friends, not food. In return, I love her, and cuddle her, and made her part of our family. I could talk about her for hours, but I would be the only one interested ?

Oh, and my Norwegian Forest Cat kitten Max likes to cuddle her and wash her ears. So cute.

Welcome to the forum from Utah. I'm glad you joined and thanks for sharing the pictures of your beautiful girl. Looks like you got a good one and I see you loves a sucky toy. Typical Doberman there.

She LOVES her squeaky stuffies. And since I love (to spoil) her, she has a constant stream of them to love and chew to death.

Welcome to DT also in Tulsa, Have a nine year old male Doberman and a 9year old female Dachshund. You might go to Companion Dog Training in Tulsa or go to Tulsa Dog Training depending on where you live in Tulsa. They teach you how to train your dog you go once a week for an hour. They give you homework you work with the dog 10-20 minutes a day if you have questions ask them when you go back the next week. The classes are about 6-8 weeks long. Good Luck
