Do take your puppy to puppy playschool and obedience training classes and do your homework for these classes. Behaviors that are cute in a 15 pound puppy can be dangerous in a 75 pound doberman. Socialize your puppy with people (especially children) and other dogs frequently (after your puppy has completed its immunization). Your doberman puppy may go through a period known as “adolescent shyness” when it reaches 4-5 months of age. This period can last until the puppy is 12-18 months old. Socializing your puppy from an early age will help minimize this shyness. Expose your doberman puppy to a variety of experiences, but do so gently. You don’t want to traumatize your puppy. Be careful of heavy physical exertion directly before and after eating, especially if your Doberman is a “gulper”. Dobermans puppies can suffer from bloat. If your dog’s abdomen becomes distended and rigid and it can not seem to belch or pass gas, gastric torsion may be the problem. This is an urgent health concern and puppies, doberman and other breeds, should immediately attend the vets.

What traits are inherent in Dobermans generally?

The breed is naturally loyal, intelligent and protective. A Doberman thrives on regular exercise, mental stimulation and a well-balanced diet. These traits make a Doberman an absolute pleasure to own when well-trained, but in the hands of a novice, unconcerned, uncommitted owner, their intelligence and drive can become difficult to manage. Breeding plays an important role in the temperament of Doberman’s, so selecting a reputable breeder concerned with both physical health and the personality of their puppies is of utmost importance. Different bloodlines exhibit traits differently, so question breeders about the strong and weak traits of their bloodlines.

What toys and supplies do I need to buy?

Different dogs like different types of toys. Most Dobermans like toys that they can fetch.  It is a good idea to teach your dog early on to chew on the proper toys that will result in good dental health.  Hard nylon chew toys or sterilized bones are good for helping reduce the tarter on their teeth. Not all dogs like to chew on these types of things and they must be encouraged to do so. Some dog treats such as rawhide bones and rope toys should be given to the dog only when supervised. These types of toys can be dangerous if the dog eats them rather than just chewing them and most Dobermans are inclined to do this. Some dogs savour their treats and simply enjoy chewing them; others simply destroy them and swallow large pieces.

A crate is a must. It should be large enough for the dog to stretch out in, stand up and turn around but not so large that it does not provide the secure ‘den’ feeling that dogs enjoy.  There are various types of crates, usually wire and plastic. Different situations call for different crates.  Wire affords good circulation but is not as secure feeling to the dog as a plastic crate. Plastic crates are required by the airlines.

Collars with tags marked clearly with the address and contact numbers should be worn by dogs when they are outside.  Even safer is a microchip implanted under the skin registered with the AKC’s Companion Animal Recovery program.  Most veterinarians can provide this service.  Be careful of loose fitting collars and dangling tags when the dog is confined to his crate as there is the possibility of it becoming tangled in the crate and causing harm to the dog.  A “choke style” collar is very dangerous when a dog is crated. Only snug fitting, flat collars with nothing dangling or protruding to catch wires should be used. Use discretion with these items.

Where should they live/sleep?

A Doberman that gets a lot of exercise and interaction with family makes an excellent housedog but he must have a secure area to run and play in or he should be taken on very regular romps to let off some steam.  A Doberman that has been cooped up and not allowed to play rambunctiously may be too active to enjoy in the house.  Because of their curious nature and high activity level it is best if young dogs sleep in a confined, secure place such as a crate.  This assures that the dog does not “accidentally” get into trouble during the night when he wakes up and is unsupervised.  Older, mature dogs that have proven themselves trustworthy housedogs can be allowed to sleep loose.

Will protection training make my puppy doberman vicious?

Protection sport training is probably the most misunderstood training in existence. Many people think that sport protection training makes dobermans vicious and aggressive towards people. The dogs are not taught to bite the person, but to bite the fabric. In the basic training the dog or puppy is taught to play with a burlap sack, sort of a tug of war. The doberman (or puppy) is then graduated to seizing a tube of burlap/fabric and stuffing. Then the dog is graduated to a leg sleeve and then to a decoy suit or sleeve. If the decoy, the man in the suit, were to take off the suit and shake it around, the dog will grab the suit and start a tug of war, in the same manner as he/she did with the burlap sack. If the decoy were to run away holding the suit, dangling from an out stretched hand, exposing the rest of the man to the dog, the dog would grasp the suit and pay no attention to the man. The doberman is taught to grab the fabric. The decoy is friendly towards the dog and many times, in training, the dog will climb up in the decoy’s lap and lick his face, immediately after the protection session is over. Puppies, dobermans seem to be particularly keen to start young, can start in a very small way from an early age but of course a puppy needs to mature into adult before progressing.
