  1. Doberman defensive behavior around other dogs

    Doberman Related Chat
    So I have a little girl doberman named Remi who is a little over a year old now. She also only has one eye which I feel might be relevant. She has had it since birth, her breeder told me it was a defect and she couldn't breed her because of it. Shes a very shy and sweet little girl, and only...
  2. Help for new dobie mom

    General Training & Obedience
    Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help from dobie lovers for a semi-reluctant new dobie mom (my boyfriend's dog). I tend to gravitate toward large, lazy, little-effort-required sort of dogs, so a doberman is a new world for me. I'm having trouble adjusting. I've never had to train an animal...

    Doberman Related Chat
    I had been bringing my girl Kaia to daycare a couple times a week from the time she was fully vaccinated until her 6 month birthday, when we had to take a hiatus until she got spayed. I had her spayed at 1 year, and just started bringing her back once a week. The first time she went with no...
  4. Neutered at 14 months

    Doberman Health
    I found this forum to be helpful in deciding whether/when to neuter and thus I will share my experience in hopes that it will help someone else. I adopted Muthu from another family approximately 3 weeks ago (they could no longer take care of him for a health reason). He was 14 months old at...
  5. Will neutering stop interest in female urine?

    General Training & Obedience
    My five year old male is uncontrollably interested in female urine. He licks any female urine he comes across and of course that causes the mouth drool saliva and chattering teeth. The problem is that my six year old female is spayed and dribbles a bit. So, after two days the entire tile floor...
  6. Few specific questions

    General Training & Obedience
    Hi all! Couple questions about my pups behavior. (novel ahead, sorry) So he knows he is not allowed to put his teeth on us, at all, even mouth. We always end the game/ pets/ fun whenever he does and he learned this really quick a while ago. However now whenever he gets in a mood, he will snap...
  7. 5 years old and I still cant control him

    General Training & Obedience
    Hey everyone. I have a 5 year old Dobe who I had since he was a puppy. I took him to obedience classes and he did great. He was crate trained for the first 2 years of his life. After moving, he refused to go in and outgrew his crate anyway. He NEVER pees or poos in the house and I never had that...
  8. My 7 mo. old is becoming a demon/hellion/beast/monster

    Puppy Corner
    Despite the thread title, I love my dog. He's been great. Up until last month when he turned 6 months old. He's 7 months now and still has his balls. Why? For every opinion as to why you should neuter your pup early, there is a contrary opinion as to why you should not. My vet says he's a...

    Doberman Health
    Hi there! I haven't been on this forum for a few years... but I have a concern. I have a 3 year old doberman female. She has always been a whiner.. nose whining.

  11. My Doberman Too Calm???

    Doberman Related Chat
    I have a question. My Dobie is almost two tears old now but the last couple days has been acting different. Normally he is a very hyper active dog but lately he has been strangly calm. He just wants to be right by us and sit on our feet. Kind of like he is just being super protective and his job...

    Puppy Corner
    Hi guys! Long-time stalker, first time poster here. <3 About 5 mos ago I adopted a Doberman/Rottweiler mix puppy by the name of Dante. He's been a peach to train so far (if with a little bit of an attitude!) but I have a question about his most perplexing and often annoying behavior: his...
  13. becoming very untrustworthy lately, very frustrated...

    Puppy Corner
    So to start this off, it's about his destructiveness and overall disobedience when i'm not around. when i first got him at 10 weeks, there were little things here and there he would do, but after about 2-3 weeks of solid corrections, the habits virtually stopped. Especially when i was around to...
  14. Behavioral Concerns

    General Training & Obedience
    I have a 9 month Doberman rescue. I love everything about him. However I have noticed some behavior patterns that concern me. He prefers people over dogs. He follows me every single step. Even at the dog run/park he follows me around or walks around playing by himself ( balls, sticks, chasing...
