Mods, can we just close this thread?
Bold, mine.We were going to show Raven (our first Doberman) but after her blood test and DNA test we found out that she was a high Carrier of VwD and was then spay. like I said I wanted to show Spirit( our second Doberman) but after trying with a handler, trainer, we decided that his marking next to the front of his nose was too dark, so we went for Working. he was my first Therapy and Assistance dog. Again, We started Agility with Spirit, but with my handicaps we had to do it just for fun. He also had some Protection training but I was not interested in an IPO because he was for Therapy and Assistance for my disability. Gypsy was the one who lost or cracked 4 teeth as a puppy. She was my other Therapy dog.
I have been trying to show for several years and now I am going to try with Senshi. if he does well then good if not then no big deal. He is still going to be trained in Therapy and Assistance for me.
Like I said before, Doberman's were created as a working breed but I don't have a problem with people using them to show either. I think it is up to the owner to decide.
It bothers me that you'd label a nasty post such as the one to which you're referring as "KIND."Thank you for your KIND words. I joined this site when it first was formed. I joined to talk about Dobermans with others who love the breed as much as I do. I would tell everyone I knew who had a Doberman about this site. Now I just don't know.
Thank you again!!!!!!!:nicejob::nicejob:
I have TWO Dobermans now, Yuki my rescue Albino (CREAM And WHITE COLORED ) Girl we got from Ohio Doberman Rescue and now my new Service in training Puppy Senshi (black and tan). He has just had his ears cropped BY MY VET(as I didn't like the breeders Vet ear cropping technic or style) plus he is battling an UTI, he starts puppy classes in about 4 weeks. We have already started basic training. He comes on command, sits, walks on a leash, loads in the car GREAT,and sits to great people without jumping on them and is potty trained for pooping.:nicejob: he will pee outside on command but with his UTI we have to watch him in the house because he goes about every half hour. I think for a 10week 2 day old puppy I think that is GREAT!!
Again thank you
Why?Mods, can we just close this thread?
I am not sure?! But I have been to a motel(Private hotel not a chain) with my boy Spirit and been turned away because they did not allow dogs over 15lbs. I told them he was my assistance dog and rather than get into a whole fight. I just went to another motel.frznbuns,
Are you the same one that had an issue with size? In a motel? We already told you size doesn't matter when taking a dog into a motel.
