Hello DT, I have been lurking for years reading breeder recommendations, health threads, etc. I finally felt I was ready to consider a new dog and filled out an application fully prepared to wait for a year for the right fit, as I have learned is common with reputable breeders. However I was shocked when I got a reply a few days later with pictures of a beautiful male 6 month old dobe. I currently have a two and a half year old female altered pitbull. We are okay with the monetary commitment and driving nearly across the country but I am slightly concerned that he is not fully socialized. He has not been around other dogs besides dobermans and has not started any formal training. We have raised dobermans before understand that socialization and training is crucial. I think an older puppy would fit in well, but want opinions if he is getting a late start. I am planning to enroll him in training immediately and after he is adjusted start talking him to the beach, park (not a dog park), downtown, etc. Any suggestions?
