Hello fellow Doberman owners, my little Tyson has just turned 7 months old and i'm really starting to enjoy watching him grow into a beautiful looking dog. To most, this is probably a stupid question but at what age should they become protective? He is such a wuss, he's scared of anybody who walks into my house, anybody knocks on my door he runs away! He is very obediant and extremely submissive to me. I'm sure it's only because he's a puppy still, but i need some reassurance! He hasn't been neutered yet and dominates other dogs, when he does bark, does sound deep and mean so hopefully these are all good signs that he will be a good protector of me and my family. Also he's got huge clumps of white stuff comming out of his eyes after he sleeps, I know they have deep set eyes but should i be worried cleaning them 2 - 3 times a day? Much appreciated!
