Hello everyone thank you for the great welcome!
We adopted Chip and Lily from a breeder in Calumet City, IL. No problems with litter mate syndrome yet but we have made an effort to give individual attention to both. We haven't had Dobermans before but they were highly recommended by friends and now I don't think I could ever have another breed and I'm reading a lot of people saying that on these forums. We have worked with both dogs but no professional obedience training. They walk very well with loose leash but Chip is starting to spaz when he comes around other males and small dogs (yorkies, chihuahuas etc). Any referrals for how to work on this or is obedience school the way to go? Also, would love to read messages from anyone interested in play dates, especially while the dogs are still pups. I'm going to work on getting some photos on here in the meantime.
