Yes, I am ASTOUNDED at the people who actually have a Doberman and have no idea how to manage the experience. I feel bad for them and worse for the pups!@ MMc
LOL..You have no idea how many folks I have convinced that a Doberman is not for them. Friends who know my son's and my boys just assume that they came home from the breeder as the sweet, obedient and moderately protective dogs that they are familiar with. When I explain the time effort and possible expenses involved the are really surprised. My wife's best friend kept talking about getting a Doberman. Thus is a woman who's Rottie girl killed her cat and currently has a Scottie and a French Bull Dog that have never been properly socialized or even totally house broken.
And she wanted a Doberman puppy. Gee.... I wonder how that would have worked out?
