puppy

Hi, I just bought a puppy, he will be here in five weeks. Any tips for a new doberman owner? Also I would love any name suggestions.

Isn't the breeder naming the litter or at least have a theme that they want you to use?

Check the stickies at the top of the Puppy forum--I think there are several collections of suggestions about things you should know, do and remember about new puppies.

Welcome to DT from Colorado!

Here's the link to the subforum dobebug is talking about. Check out the threads labeled "Sticky" toward the top of the page.

https://www.dobermantalk.com/puppy-corner/

Do you have any specific things you want to know about?? Or just generalized joy and anticipation coupled with "OMG, what have I gotten into" about having a new puppy come to stay?


I think we must have a thread or two of various doberman names, but all I can come up with is this one:

"What are the Nicknames for your dobermans?"

You'll probably be calling your pup names like these pretty soon after you get him anyway

I forgot--welcome from Portland (Oregon, so it's the left hand Portland in the Pacific Northwest).

I get puppies from showline breeders so they almost all came with registered names--some even came with call names. When they only came with registered names I didn't even think about a 'call' name until they had been with me for several days to several weeks--eventually a name came to me that was a direct result of getting to know the puppy.

I do the same thing with cats (and they are all reclaimed strays or from rescues, dog pounds and rejects from former owners) One of my cats went through 6 or 7 call names before we finally settled on a name that seemed to belong to him.

And one of my Dobermans call name is 'Toad'--that used to really attract the judges attention when he was in Obedience trials doing recalls and he got called--'TOAD COME!"

He came with that one--I don't think I would have given him such a nickname but he was six months old when he came to me complete with both registered (Foxfire's Gold Toed Monster) and call names.
