In my opinion you should ease off with the running, puppies naturally do all the running around they need without us humans adding to it. Her growth plates are not fused at her tender age which doesnt happen as has already been pointed out until she is around 18 months old or so.

I also wish to say. Please, please, please, I know your girl is being very good and staying by your side when you walk her, but she should be on a leash, it is too dangerous for her to be off. Any number of things can go wrong, another dog might attack her, she might become distracted and run across a road before you even know what has happened. I appreciate you may be in a park when you exercise her and whilst she is cute and loveable now, an unleashed Dobe no matter how small running around is likely to provoke the wrong kind of reaction from folk. You are an ambassador now for the breed, you and your girl must show the world that dobes are wonderful, loveable dogs and not the killers they are made out to be and that Dobe owners are responsible with regards their dogs and the general public.
thanks for the advice... i will start to walk her on her lead i just realy enjoy her with out it.. i dont really walk the park its more round the streets near my house.... the 2nd day i had her off her lead a dog ran up to her and like you said my dog ran off and would not come back... she was how ever sat on my door step when i got home.... the next day i had her on a lead and thought well i will try again... its only again today a staffy dog ran up too her and she stayed right by my side and then the staffy did wunder off... but i was scared for her..

as for the running iv now stopped doing that and just go on my own lol...

hi and welcome from suffolk uk..

i agree with keep her on the lead untill you train recall..

get a whistle.. in the house to start blow and treat when shes just sat in front of you.. then after a couple of days move a bit further away then blow and arms open she should run to you.. big fuss and treat !!

then do it in the garden.. when shes in the garden call her in with the whistle then bogg huge fuss and treat.

she needs to be taugh to come back it wont happen unless you train it.

and keep her on a lead round the streets.. its actually illegal to have a dog offlead in a public place unless undercontrol.. and if she runs off shes not undercontrol... its more for her safety aswell !!
