  1. Unruly 10 month old male

    Doberman Related Chat
    Hello everyone! I have grown up with male dobermans, and i have never seen one do this. I rescued a 6 month old intact male doberman in July. He had no training whatsoever- he would not come, sit, down, nothing. He was kept inside all day with no one around when he was with the other owner, and...

    New member introduction
    Hello everyone! :bye: I was a member of DT years ago with my last Dobe, who was the love of my life. Unfortunately, he passed away from an unexpected illness a couple years back. The members on DT were always so helpful and friendly, so thank you for that. After spending tons of time...
  3. Teach to look at me on walks?

    General Training & Obedience
    Hello everyone, I was wondering, how do you teach your Dobe to look at you while on a walk? I see this all the time in the show ring, and it would be super useful for me. Yen is so gentle and friendly when we go on walks, but anytime she sees a squirrel or other dog she perks up and 100%...

    Hey everyone! Zeus is doing well. :) As he continues to mature (and I am in no way, shape, or form saying that he is MATURE...but compared to his 3 month old self, he's come a long way!) we are learning more about the personality of our boy. And he's becoming a little calmer about things. He...

  8. Walking two dobes without them pulling

    General Training & Obedience
    I have a problem. I have two dobermans, the male is younger than the female but she is the dominant dog. He, however, naturally wants to be dominant because he is male and larger. This means that when I walk them together, he wants to be in the lead. This in turn leads to a competition between...

    We have a 10 month old doberman puppy. He's really very well behaved most of the time.. but for some reason, when it comes to his biting we're having a really hard time. He doesn't chew anything he isn't supposed to. He doesn't bite any other people other than me and my boyfriend. He's even...
  15. Calming an aggressive dobe on leash.

    General Training & Obedience
    Fellow Doberman Owners, Our pup is just turning 18 months old and he is calming down a lot, but he still has a huge play drive. When we are walking on leash he is very bad about getting worked up when another dog is approaching. He will respond very well to my commands to sit and wait while the...

    I have trained Brutus to sit, shake, lie down, stay, come, and he is still learning fetch and not to jump on people as much. (Are there any other things I should teach him?) He knows the material, and performs it very well. But he wont respond to anything if there is a distraction like a noise...
