New Dobie Dad

Hello Everyone,

I'm picking up my first Dobie this weekend so I'm VERY excited. His ears are cropped and the breeder isn't exactly close to where I live which is Washington DC so it will be my responsibility to tape them which I'm a little nervous about. I've watched and read numerous videos and articles but would love it if I had someone close by who is experienced with this to help me. Any suggestions?

Thanks a million!!!

Can the breeder give you a referral to someone? Usually reputable breeders can network with another breeder or experienced person for help. I would contact
Potomac Valley Doberman Pinscher Club

Usually a good breeder will try to find someone near you to help with ears till you get the hand of it. It is good if it is a Doberman person, but does not have to be.

HI! Welcome to DT from Colorado!

We did put together a thread listing volunteers to help folks with posting. It's out of date, but you could take a look and see if anyone looks close by.

I don't know how active Potomac Valley is. I know we have a couple of MBDPC folks a little further south (Annapolis). Shoot our secretary a note via the form here:
