Welcome! I love this site! and you will too!! Well...like we tell everyone...we definatly need pics! Everyone here loves the breed so much! Since you are a new Dobie owner...if you haven't already...you'll realize that youll want a Dobe with you for the rest of your life! lol
Welcome! I checked out your gallery photos. Mojo is a beauty! Nice ear carriage. He looks so grown up already for only being 19 weeks old! I have been a dobielover since my first dobe 28 years ago! Currently I have 2 black females, but in the past I have owned reds and a blue also. Are you doing any training with Mojo yet? Dobes learn stuff so quickly! Looking forward to many more pictures of Mojo, he is a real looker!
Oh Thank you so much !!! I have fallen so hopelessly in love with him you would think I gave birth to him. Well at least that is what my son says .... Hmm a little jelousy maybe LOL.
We go for our evaluation for formal training placement this Thursday.
We already tried some other training in a group setting and it was not working out. Had one dog that was so out of control all the instructors time was taken up with him.
So I hope this new place we attend will be a little better suited for him to learn and socialize.
We shall see since while they evaluate us I will be evaluating them!!
He already has the basics down pretty well and is fully potty trained and crate trained for night time. Smart as a whip too!
I am in Culpeper. I love my breeder she did everything right he is above all else Healthy as can be and as you will probably will get sick of hearing BEAUTIFUL ( I am partial of course as all mommies he could be butt ugly and I would still think he is a beauty)
Took me six months of research of just breeders to find her. I did a years worth on just the breed to make sure I was making the right decision.
Made hubby dip into the equity well to fence in 2 acres around the house before I did it too.
All our other dogs have been rescues with the acception of one my POGO a cairn terrier. He passed on at 15 in 2002. We still have Cleo a terrier mix who is estimated to be 12 and Bubby the chiuahua who everyone thinks may actually be a short haired cat with 9 lives since the vet estimated him at 16 and we have had him for 3 years since then.
Welcome to the forum Amy
I am also a first time Dobe owner and know that I will always have at least one in my life. Chihiro is 8 months old now but it seems like we brought her home just yesterday. They grow so fast!!!
Look forward to getting to know you and Mojo better
