Doberman Puppies (Preparation and Post Care)
I am not a breeder of these dogs and have no kennel experience of them. However, for the past 30 years, I have always been a Doberman owner. Currently I have two Dobermans, Doby Wan and Espiritu De Mujeres! Espiritu is now heavily pregnant with pups from Doby Wan and my reason for writing here is:-
1) Could anyone offer me help and advice on how to make sure Espiritu comes through this ok?
2) I need advice on preparations, and post care of the puppies, weaning , diet etc!
3) When the pups are born, I am going to have to leave Espiritu and her babies alone ocasionally...how do I best make sure that her pups are safe from accidental crushing?
I did not allow Espiritu to mate with Doby because I am interested in selling pups. I live in Lanzarote and though the breed is rare here, there are a small number of these dogs needing homes here. If I cannot find good owners here, my intention is to newter and raise all her pups myself.
If anybody here can see past my ignorance here and just offer me helpful advice in what I see as a truly magnificent event for my Espiritu, it would be very, very appreciated, otherwiise its just between us and the info on the internet thats going to get us through.
I have access to vets here, but none have experience of Dobermans!
Thanks in advance to any responders out there!
