They usually out grow this problem. I have never heard of a dog being treated with anti seizure meds for them. What most people do is offer the dog a treat and it snaps them out of it. Let me see if I can find a link for you.

Interesting link. My first Doberman Max has been to see Dr. O'Brien before. Max was born with neuro problems and was sent to see Dr. O'Brien when it was suspected that he had wobblers.

I'm just wondering if what the OP is talking about is what alot of Doberman owners report of their dog's head bobbling. That is the common description. And I don't believe it is a seizure disorder.

A focal seizure could be confirmed with an EEG, don't know it the OP has had one done her dog.

On another forum there have been quite a few posters describing the same as you. There is a term for it, but I can't remember it.
I do not recall the dog's age or any updates to know if and at what age they out grew it.
I just recall that they were told it was something seen in Dobermans and they all agreed that giving the dog a treat made him snap out of it.
I wish the link I wanted you to see wasn't broken. I can email the lady that that helps with the website, but she is out of town this weekend.
