    Should we get a Dobe?

    I’m looking for some advice from experienced owners of the wonderful breed. My boyfriend (Michael) and I have been in love with Dobies for a long time. Info about us: We both work full time but Michael runs his own business and can therefore be fully flexible in terms of working from home. We...

    Day after cropping ears oozing and bad odor, HELP!

    Hi everyone, This is our second dobie and we're still learning. We got our first dobie from the breeder at 12 weeks and he was already healed up and posted from his crop. He was very tolerant of our posting. We got our newest addition at a younger age and we took him to the ear cropping...

    In over my head with training!

    First off, I know that my dogs lack of proper training and misbehavior is 100% on me and my husband. It's very humbling/embarrassing to ask for help with this and I am genuinely trying to find a way to remedy my mistakes, so please keep that in mind when framing your responses. That being...

    Any one have an idea what this is?!

    Hello, so I found this spot on my dog, about 2/3 weeks ago?! It started off just as red irritated skin bump?! Hair was still on it then, Sorta looked like a ingrown hair or pimple, but no puss inside(tried popping as she gets ingrown hairs and pimples occasionally) so just left it for about a...

    Infected ear? Candida? Mites?

To the story: my girl is now 5 months old and about a week ago we noticed her scratching her posts at the...

    Need help with posting method for 1 y/o!

    So long story short I’ve been terrible about posting, haven’t tried in something like 8mos and now my boy is 13mos. One ear stands and one flops. That one has been flopping for the whole 8mos, though his cartilage is still insanely soft and he can make that ear stand if it’s perked up. I stopped...

    Questions about ear cropping post care

    we are getting our beautiful girl on Oct 1. This will be one day after getting tail docked and ear cropped. She will be two days short of 8 weeks. The reason for a late tail dock is because we are from Canada where no vets will perform the ear crop or tail docking so the breeder does take the...

    Is the Doberman moving towards extinction?

    Hi guys, From the research I've done it looks like the doberman breed is severely inbred, as breeders are churning out puppies for aesthetics and neglecting longevity and health. As so, it looks as if the gene pool is rapidly shrinking (at least in Europe) with only a handful of kennels...

    I need some help picking my new little girl. I am getting a fawn female and I get to choose between two. They are both healthy and absolutely beautiful. One is the runt and one is regular size. According to the breeder the runt is a little spit fire. I am learning towards the runt but don't...

    Hi, I have a five month old European doberman that I got when he was 3 months old. In these past few weeks he has developed a really bad biting problem where he snarls, growls, barks and bites people in the house, especially my sister. Me ( the dogs owner ) and my sister are the main targets for...

    What could this be?!

    I noticed what looked like a swollen scab? on my dobermans muzzle that appeared out of nowhere yesterday. I didn’t think much of it at first cause Zoe is pretty clumsy, I thought she might have just scratched herself on something. Today it looks more of a moist/oozing wound? Like it’s getting...

    Sigh...Crate training is not getting better.

    Hey all, so we’re 2 weeks in to doberpup ownership and things have been going so well (after the initial ear freakouts) except in ONE area. Although I am definitely not new to crate training, it seems like we’re failing at this part big time! Ive had three (shepherd mixes and a dobie-lab x) pups...
