Smile Lander Wyoming Dobe

Hello Everyone,
I just purchased my first Doberman. I am so excited and got him from a professional breeder who takes passion and pride in her puppies. I am looking for as many tips to owning a doberman and to help me in the long run. I have an 8 week old fawn who is absolutely gorgeous. His name is Brock "brock the rock". I am planning on getting his ears cropped and would love to have as much information as possible before I get the surgery. I am working on getting him professionally trained and becoming a show dog. His family genes are some of the best out there with minimal health problems and only the best Pros for a doberman. Thank you all for the help and may all of you have a blessed experience with your wonderful Dobermans!!

Welcome to DT from DFW, TX! Congrats on adding Brock to your family! We'd love to see pictures (plural!!) of Brock.

I'm a newby Dobe mommy (General is 16 weeks old) so I won't be able to add much but there is a wealth of information to be found on this forum.

Check out the following link for information on wrapping cropped ears. It's no longer recommended to use vet wrap because it can continue to tighten around the ear possibly cutting off blood supply/flow.

Best wishes to you, your family and Brock!

Welcome neighbor - from Utah!

Did you get your puppy from a breeder in Wyoming?
We all love pictures around here

Welcome to DT from Tennessee.

I must say that reputable show breeders crop their puppies ears, at 7-9 weeks of age) before the puppies go to their new homes. Good cropping vets are not easy to come by and show breeders don't want their puppies(their reputation) running around with horrible crops, which is what most vets do.

Did your breeder inform you of the special coat problems that come with owning a fawn?

Please stay with the forum and learn all you can. I know you are excited with your new puppy and that is as it should be.

Pictures, please post some pictures of your new little guy.

Did your breeder refer you to a good vet in Wyo that crops ears? I am asking because Lander is a 6 hr drive (I think) to SLC and we do have a reputable vet that gives excellent crops and follow up. If you don't know of a good vet there, you can contact Dr. Carl Pew of Orem, Utah.

Hi! Welcome from the Pacific NW.

Ditto RE: The potential coat problems in dilute dobermans....... Specifically Alopecia (excessive hair loss) and Puritus (itching, skin irritation, leading to excessive scratching, licking or chewing on themselves. Just something that you should be aware of.

Also, as LindaH implied, quality ear croppers are few and far between. Take great care in choosing a reputable ear surgeon. You may have to travel some distance to have you pup's ears done. Or.... you could leave them natural.

Thank you for the pictures. Cute boy you have!
What is his AKC reg. name? I am a nut about names and pedigrees. I love the research.
