Editing a post—

There's a row of buttons at the bottom of your post—Edit, Quote, Multi-quote, Quick Reply, Thanks

Click on Edit, and you'll see a box with that post's text that you can edit. But you folks can only edit your posts for about 25 minutes after you've put it up and then it is carved in stone for posterity to see, so try to be careful that what you say originally is exactly what you want.

Well, that it doesn't contain anything incriminating or personal in nature, that is. We're very accepting of grammatical mistakes or spelling errors here (witness our treatment of ECIN's posts) with only a few snide comments from time to time (witness our treatment of ECIN's posts.)

good morning Melbrod, well that's very nice of you to offer but how would I see my answers if we do that move my threads...and how would I answer. Probably complicated also...for now I can post in here puppy corner and someone had told me to search the girls outside and I was able to open that thread as well and they had said to post there also if I wanted...but not sure on how to start a new thread on an ongoing thread ...anyway a few option here. I do received your PM's but after first reading them I don't know how to get them back up to read or answer on the PM's...let's keep it simple for me which it's easier:) I have a question how do you go about editing a post? I forgot how already haha. Thank you for your help and your interest!
Do you have the forum open in a browser (like Chrome) on your phone? If so, have you tried choosing the option to exit the "enhanced mobile view"? That's the only way I can get the forum to work on a phone for me. It is a little more cumbersome, but that seems to work for being able to actually navigate everything.

I absolutely hate the "enhanced mobile view" and don't use it at all. Whenever it shows up on my phone or tablet, I always exit it. On the regular form, I use the "classic" view (you will be able to change that in a little box at the very bottom left corner of the page. The stark black, white, and red "full" forum is too eyeball boggling for me.

I was talking to Bug yesterday Princesse and we talked about the same thing - its part of the journey with a Dober :grin2: The wife and I talk about it just about every night - What Chi did or Kasia , Ali , Kadin and a few more others did as puppies - it comes up down the road too after we lose one - it's the great memories we build over the years , Won't trade it for nothing :grin2: Little girl is coming along pretty good , well , for the most part , LOL Another month and I see big changes with her . I have been working her here with the lead and other OB , but very short sessions , shes starting to get it .

thank you for the direction but unfortunately I don't have any of those functions at the end of my posts whatsoever...probably goes back to my original problem, I'll just have to be careful typing...lol I know I makes some grammatical errors myself.

no I haven't tried that yet Medowcat, thank you I'll see what I can do. In the meantime I rather keep it simple. If it's more cumbersome it probably won't be good for me...hahaha I'm not too savvy.

awwww that's great Doc, yes they leave us with wonderful memories. Were all your puppies that you mentioned dobermans? Me Duke is my second dobe. And dogs as an adult. Yes I did grow up around all kinds of dogs on the farm, but it wasn't like today's dogs back then...they were outside dogs and today we all have our dogs inside and especially the doberman. I like these times and bond with my baby better than when i was growing up...I'm sure you understand what I'm trying to communicate. That's great that you're doing the lead and training yourself, I did too. I find it more rewarding...yes they catch on fast, I'm always amazed by the breed. Cheers.

It's not more cumbersome, really, it's just a less "mobile" looking version. It will actually allow you to use the forum.

Yes all of them were Dobermans - then we also had 3 Australian Shepherds - 2 of them were raised with a Dober - What a pair of dogs , lol

On a farm huh ? We also farm here in Indiana - but have to wonder with your sign off ( Cheers ) if you live in the states or not - Sounds more like you may be from England :grin2:

Hi Doc, thank you!I'll just pass this by you real quick, I'm interested in finding out if Duke would protect me in case of a bad encounter on my walks with him...he protects the back yard and the house RV etc... but I'm curious, I read that there's a test that you can take to find out his temperament? Wae I think they called it. I'm wondering where do you go about finding such a test? If you know I would gladly appreciate it! Thanks in advance! Should I start a new thread on the subject?

The WAE is not a test to "find out" temperament. It's an evaluation of a Doberman's temperament based on going through several stations and having a trained evaluator assess their reactions to each station. It is the Working Aptitude Exam. Dobermans must be registered with the AKC in order to take the exam. WAEs are offered periodically throughout the country by DPCA chapter clubs (my club offers one every year, for example).

You can read about the WAE here: https://dpca.org/awards/wae/

Essentially, your dog is evaluated on how they react to the following:

- A neutral stranger
- A friendly stranger
- A hidden clattering (someone holds a tin can with noise and is hidden from the dog - do they move to investigate it?)
- A gunshot
- An umbrella (popped open suddenly as they approach it - must closely investigate it)
- strange footing (an x-pen flat on the ground, a tarp flat on the ground, dogs must walk on them)
- response to a threat (stranger approach in a threatening manner)

More description is on the WAE page. You can click to see the scoresheet, where a bit more description is given of each exercise. I've seen dogs get non-passing scores on any of the exercises. One of the evaluators reminds our club often that this is simply an evaluation of temperament to give us insight into our dog. Too many people start to look at it as a "title" (dogs can receive their Working Aptitude Certification) and try to train their dogs to pass certain elements, which is not what this is for.

In any case, hope that gives you a little bit of info on the WAE. If you can find one near you (and right now it may be hard with the pandemic) it is excellent to watch. You can learn a lot about temperament in our breed. If your dog is registered you can take the exam.

Hi, thank you for the great explanation of WAE and link to it, you completely answered my question. I wont need to start a new thread on it...unfortunately my dog is registered with the CKC because he's from both American and European bloodlines. So I guess I'm out of luck:( my curiosity is to,: if he would defend me on a bad encounter. Oh well I guess I will find out if the situation ever occurs...and hopefully not! thank you very much for your help! Ps: I'm not sure if I'm answering Meadowcat or Ecin. I see both names above. Still new to the site and my side of the forum is still not working properly so thanks to all!
