    10 month old dobermann with a new born human

    This sounds kind of weird, but maybe put some of your baby's clothes on one of those dolls that makes noises and let Maze get closer? This way same scent as your newborn and not putting the baby in any danger since you feel Maze is not completely trusted yet.

    Walking distance for pups

    Sorry for digging up old threads... Is there an age breakdown on the best way to safely exercise a doberman. I know it'll be case by case specific, but looking for generalizations where possible so I can follow best practices when I eventually bring one home (and if different between male /...

    Von Willebrand....How common is this?
