Hello from Ontario, Canada
Hi all, been lurking around for a few months during the research phase of our puppy/breeder search. I've been wanting a GS or Husky since as long as I can remember and never even considered a Doberman. A few months ago my wife brought up getting a dog and I immediately took the idea and ran with it. She has always wanted a small dog, but I'm not a fan of the small fluffy dogs, so when she out of nowhere suggested a Doberman, I was a bit resistant but began my research and the more I looked at them and read about them, the more I fell in love. This past weekend we met with Hausenbrook, I know she's on here too, and were quite pleased. The kids were great with the dogs, my son right off the bat, and my daughter took a few minutes to warm up but once she did, she was good. We got contacted later that evening from Hausenbrook informing us that they are approving our application to bring one of their pups into our family and in turn join theirs. The kids were ecstatic, as were my wife and I.
So, as we prepare to bring home a puppy in late September/early October, if the pregnancy took, what are some tips you guys can offer in regards to essentials. We've had a dog in the past but he was a small one, so we're wondering what size of crate the doberman would need. I've seen that there are crate dividers that can be installed and moved as the puppy grows into their crate. Any other tips and suggestions are welcome. Looking forward to participating a lot more in the forum.
