Hey guys,

     So I've been off for a while really trying to work with Kratos on listening to commands off leash.  He has really been moving along through training, so much so that we can now go to the park, and trust him to listen on command.  On occasion we will have a mishap but I have really learned not to freak out about it and just move on.  My boy is doing so good, I just want to show him off he makes me so proud. I love all the comments about how gorgeouse he is, but I especially love the ones about how obedient he is now. Well, here are some pics...

Here he is at the mountains...

Staring out at the beauty...

I think he looks absolutely gorgeouse here.

Kratos, you are dynamite!
Dobieluver,
I'd have to rename the "staring out at beauty" to "watching my own back, thank you!"
Ha!
He is so beautiful!
Those mountains must be staring back at him thinking the same!

Oh my gosh, Dobieluvr, I love his crop!!! He's so regal and gorgeous. 
When I get my male, I hope he's as handsome.

Kratos is a super cool doberdude. I love his crop, too.  I personally like a wider base to the ear like he has.

It's a wonderful feeling when you see all your hardwork (training) pay off in ways that you want it to.  Congrats on that!!

And yes, Kratos is very good looking.. but also.. he is outshining all these dobie teens (Steve included) who have decided that they don't need to listen to their parents.  ;)

Oh these doberboys!!! I came home to find my outlet from the backyard completely torn out, I was so heated, not to mention the fact that he really could've hurt himself!!! And, cost me a fortune!

Kratos! Chill dude! I just laid an ironing board on the floor in front of an electrical cord that I can't hide behind furniture. Leo's never chewed on it, but he will take his water bottle "chewy" to the wall within in inches. I think it's easier to baby proof a house than baby dobe proof it.
Grrrrrr!

Hi guys!

I know it's been a while but I've got updates, I've still been training with momma and she loves me more and more everyday, I'm much calmer now too.

Raven-

Don't be upset, you're beautiful and I would want to be with you if I was your age but I don't think your brother would allow that to begin with and now to mention momma would bop me on the nose and yell at me for taking advantage of a young female...

Oh, oh, I think she's coming now.

I took my boy to the mountains for some good, old, tiresome hiking, he loved it!!!

This is when we first took off...

We just got here...

So much to sniff, feel, and chew on!!!

He saw someone he didn't quite have a liking for...

Gorgeous, isn't he?

That pic in the car with his head on you.........My Brody does the same exact thing.Too funny!Does he like to put his head in your free hand while you drive too?He's a handsome little man.

Cisco,Raven's ears look awesome!I remember Brody's ears looked like that and I was thinking he'd turn out looking like a bunny rabbit.Needless to say,he grew right into them.

Thanks Patriot- She has a pocket in her left ear we are working on~ But her right ear is standing beautifully- Cisco's are another Story - His are even longer than hers (bigger doggie head) and they just refuse to stay pocket free or stand at all-

Next dobe- I want a crop like Kratos or maybe natural!

I actually want the opposite though, our next dobe is going to be exactly like Raven with a nice long show crop, Kratos was our first dobe and he's definitely been quite the learning experience, but once we buy a bigger home we're going to get a black and tan fully registered female. Right now our house has a tiny backyard and at the time we were so overwhelmed with Kratos we didn't think about how that would affect him, so now we have to have to make sure he gets more then enough exercise to keep him happy.

Patriot & Dabbles:
Yeah as long as I have a free hand or shoulder, he's right there leaning on it, he's really spoiled sometimes. I love it though!

Kratos has  become a wonderful dog.. You've done an amazing job with him.. and the picture of him with his head on your shoulder ( maybe he thinks he's your GPS) is adorable.
