hi All,
cant believe i never thought about searching for a forum about my dogs till now. a little break down I've had 2 Doberman's previously a Black and Tan female Genesis 12yrs old past a cpl yrs ago and my Red Doberman 15yrs old Maximus just passed Dec 2020. Now I have a 8week old Blue Doberman Achilles. Ive had him for 1 week now and he is a pain in the butt lol. Well actually he is using the doggy door regularly now to go play and has his accidents a little bit. but i am excited to read up on everyone's experiences and training tips to help . its been so long since ive had a puppy around. and planning his ear crop here in the coming weeks

I'm sorry about your loss of Genesis and Maximus. It sounds like they sure made it to a ripe old senior age--how blessed you were. Though no matter how long they live, it is never long enough.

Achilles is a cute little guy. I hope you stick around, post lots of pictures and let us watch him grow up. :)

Welcome - I don't know if you have had a dilute Doberman before (blue and fawn), if you haven't, then read up on Color dilution alopecia. Blues and fawns tend to have thin brittle coats and will generally start losing hair coat by the age of two. Not every blue will lose coat, but about 75% will at least lose some. It has no bearing on the overall health of your Doberman, but will require some special care.
