Just wanted to know if anyone has a dobie that is a nervous wreck a lot of the time? Mariah is so skittish and is basically scared of her own shadow. If my hubby and I have a mild arguement or raise our voices, she starts to pace and sometimes will throw up. Is this normal? I heard that Dobie's are very sensitive to their surroundings.

Also, thunderstorms and fireworks make her nuts!

Any advice to help out Mariah? :help_up_2

The part about being afraid of her own shadow and throwing up isn't normal.
My boy Cole at about age 5 became afraid of fireworks and I have heard of other dogs being freaked out about thunderstorms.

I'm getting the impression that your girl is quite nervous most of the time and that isn't normal.

Have you ever discussed this with your vet? Has she ever had a full thyroid panel done? Dobermans are prone to thyroid issues and behavior changes can be a sign.
