Hi everyone, I'm a proud doberman mom to my now 11 month old puppy Duke. My husband got him for me when he was 2 months old to help with my great sorrow over the lost of my 12 years old female doberman named Princesse ❤
This puppy journey has been quiet the experience since my Princesse was already 8 months old when we had adopted her and she was pretty much already trained.
Here with my then 2 months old pup Duke I had to learn on how to train him first with potty training which it went well he was all trained after 3weeks. On obedience commands it also went very well I must say he's smart! I wanted to take him in a class but once I decided to go the pandemic hit and with the shutdown I wasn't able to do so since all the classes were canceled. I was able to socialize him a bit late at dog parks and pet stores. He's doing great with other dogs and people at now 11 months old. I must say that I'm glad that the puppy hood is getting behind me and my husband's arms have all heal now for some time lol.

Welcome and good luck with your new boy.

Fine looking dog you have there...

If you copy and paste the part that says: 'BBCode (message boards & forums)' into your posts - The picture will appear directly in the post instead of the link to it.

I do like imgur. Very easy

Just a hopefully helpful tip: If you lift those blinds up so he can look outside whenever he wishes an invisible cone of protection will surround your home causing 70 to 80% of potential criminals to choose someplace else to consider doing any criminal activity at. This cone of protection increases in size as the dog does to a certain extent.

A pair of Dobermans looking out the window increases the size of the protection cone again and the percentage of 'would be' criminals that choose someplace else to be goes way up.

:)

 

An example for anyone that doubts this 'cone of protection' idea:

Needed to bring some stuff inside from my truck today at work so I propped the door to the shop open and had the girls in a STAY waiting for me at the doorway while I was doing it. Was unloading my stuff and looked up when one of the girls let out a single bark. A guy that was walking down the street in our direction and on our side of it heard the bark too and quickly decided he wanted to be on the other side of the street.

A single bark from just one of them while they were for the most part 'inside' the building expanded the zone all the way across the parking lot and to the other side of the street for that guy.  :)

Good morning dobermanguy, yes I agree a 100 % with you what a good idea! But that picture was taken in the RV...we leave the blinds down in there so the sun stays out and the A/C can keep up lol
But I'll definitely do that at home ! Thanks for the tip

Do not blame you a bit. 

Left mine at home today so they could get a break from the heat and humidity also. They spent their day guarding my couch at a fixed cool and comfortable 74 degrees. :)

Was mid 90's and humid as heck at the shop today. :(

Good morning dobermanguy, oh yes I can see that being a nice break for them! Here too in Florida it's in the mid 90's and Duke feels it on his walk and park or backyard play time...he's cutting his play time in nearly half.

Oh thank you so much he's my proud of joy! He's american( father) and European ( mother) mixte. I had missed this tip from you... let me try to upload a direct picture like you suggested...https://i.imgur.com/QdOOfUQ.jpg no all I can copy and paste in the version that I have of imgur is the link... I dont see there on imgur where to copy and paste BBCode. The only place I see BBCode is right under this answer box and if I press on it it explain the definition.. no place to copy and paste. I don't get it probably.

The BBcode link will start with [img] and then the rest.

Your link does work when I click it just fine. Takes me right to the picture.

The bbcode with the the [img] part in front makes the picture appear and not the link.

 

Love those ears by the way. :)

Good morning dobermanguy, I'm still trying all of your tips and all that comes up is the link. I even got my husband helping me since I'm not too savvy lol. Anyway thank you at least I got the link to work with imgur...yes we were very lucky to have a 25 years experience veterinarian that specializes in dobermans close by, 10 minutes away. His ears were standing after posting them in about a month and a half only! Very lucky again. Even thru teething they never bent down. The only thing we did was tweaking them with nasal strips on the tips for about 2 weeks.
I know some Dobie's have trouble so I am grateful his ears cooperated.
