Excited new Doberman owner

Finally adopted my second doberman after 15 years. He's 11 weeks old and his name is marvel. He's currently about 20 pounds. Adopted 2 days ago. Started his crate, potty and leash training immediately. He's doing great for the moment. He already learned "sit". I'm very excited to be here.

Welcome to DT! Did you adopt your puppy from a doberman rescue or a shelter? You don't see too many dobe puppies up for adoption!

Oh yea sorry I misstated. I didn't adopt from any rescue or shelter but bought from his breeder. He had ear crop surgery recently so he has still posts and some sutures on his ears.

Here are some pictures of him:

Hello! Welcome to you and Marvel from the Pacific NW....

What a handsome boy.

When you start to post, there is a wonderful visual tutorial by member greenkouki. It uses backer rod as posts. It is truly IMO, the best step by step posting instruction out there.

You can find it using the "Search" feature at the top the page. Type in "Backer rod ear posting". It is the one titled "Posting show cropped ears using backer rod". gk also has two other "Stickies" about ear posting near the top of that forum. Both are worth reading.

Best to you and your new pup,

John

Wow. I had adopted my first doberman when she had 2 years old so I never needed cropping and posting her ears. I read very valuable info in the posts you pointed. Thanks for info John. BTW may I ask how long this all posting process could last in total? Like 5 months or so?

Hi M.

For the average pup with a quality show crop... The general consensus is through teething. Teething can actually last though 7 months. Sometime less.

That being said, I have had dogs with shorter crops that were done by 5 months. My youngest (long show crop) was posted until about 7 1/2 months and then I supported the tips using mole foam for another month. Better safe than sorry. His ears are perfect.

Although I have posted pups since 1974, there are other members who are way more knowledgable than I am. I am sure that they will chime in.

Although I will sound like a broken record:

Posting your pups ears is a wonderful opportunity to have one of the best bonding experiences possible with your pup. Plus, it inures them to being handled by both you, vets, professional handlers and trainers.

The concept is to make it easy and comfortable for both you and your boy.

-No stress... Post when you and your pup are rested and comfortable. I have found that for the first few postings, having a second person to hand you supplies or put a reassuring hand on him really helps.
-Be prepared... Have all of your ducks in a row. Everything prepared. Posts made, tape cut, etc.
-Make it fun... No admonishments. Instead, treats and praises.
-Take your time... You may have to take one ear down at a time, with a small beak in between. The same with putting them up.
-Stay upbeat... Dobe pups are really good at reading their humans. Don't get upset.

My boy McCoy, by his third or fourth posting would come right over when he saw me getting the posting supplies together. I don't know whether is was the treats, the kisses or the ear massages.

Maybe he just wanted to get those darn things out of his ears for a few minutes!

Hope this helps
