  1. Started Schutzhund but running into major PROBLEM!

    Obedience, Agility, and Working Sports
    So I have a SUPER high energy, bright but very unfocused doberpup (10 m.o. now). She LOVES her chuck-it and can play fetch mindlessly for hours on end. I wanted to start getting her into Schutzhund as she's completely fearless and confident and I thought it would be a great way to get us working...
  2. Biten by dobe as a child, now an owner!

    New member introduction
    Hi! I'm a new member and owner of a 9 month old blue girl Zähne (Zayna). My hubby wanted to purchase a dobe (always have had boxers in the past) and he set about researching & trying to convince me. I refused as I have always been terrified of them since I was hurt badly by one as a child. I...
  3. Things your Dobie is afraid of

    Doberman Related Chat
    So DT-ers, what are some amusing things your dog is afraid of? Rosie is apparently not very fond of bicycles and people on roller blades. Yesterday when we where out for a walk a roller blader went by and she looked shocked! Was almost able to see the thought process going on "Wait...people...

    General Training & Obedience

I really want her to love a crate and have a safe place of her own. I bought the Crate Games DVD and I love it, but the issue is that I...
  5. Submissive urination?

    Puppy Corner
    Bonnie, my 19 week old girl, is not normally very skittish. But with us, her family (well, mostly me and my dad), if we approach her too quickly, she will cower and urinate. We have never hit her, we haven't even had to use a correction collar yet (a sharp disapproving sound or NO! always makes...
  6. Weaseling out of a collar

    General Training & Obedience
    I have a nine month old boy, named Beau, who goes immediately into flight mode when he feels something isn't right - and it's over random situations; anything from walking past an aisle in a pet store, an animal he's never seen before (oh lord, you should have seen him the first time he saw a...
  7. My Dobie is scared!

    General Training & Obedience
    I have a 5 month old male Dobie. He is about 52 pounds and he has grown up with 2 small pugs in my family since we got him. About 2 months ago we went over my father-n-laws house and the black lab came out and he started to make a sound that I was later told is the sound they make when there...
