Okay so I bought a pet Doberman but the breeder said he was second pick for showing. In reality she was going to keep him if I didn't want him but she knew that I had my eye on him from the get go and I have been on her waiting list. So I bought him with the pet contract but said that I was really interested in showing. I wouldn't be handling him, she would. But I was wondering if there is anything I should be doing to help prepare him.

I have been getting him used to having everywhere on his body touched, his mouth open willingly. To stand and stay because he kind of taught himself to sit.
So is there any that I can read to train him, I have already been socializing him with people and having him comfortably exposing him to large groups of people.

And since he is only 11 weeks I have only been exposing him to dogs that I know for a fact are healthy and up to date on their shots.
