can you post a clear pic of your puppy's current skin condition? my dog had experienced skin disorder during his puppy age too. it was really sad to see him suffer like that. i've tried all sort of diet and treatment but in the end i think it healed as he grown. guess the immune system has boost up also. hence, it healed by itself. my dog was allergic to pork and chicken during his treatment. so, you'll also need to observe which type of food worsen his condition and avoid those. take note of the shampoo and sleeping place also smile.gif

Hello. I am new here. However Im not new to owning dogs or dobes. I have owned dogs since I was small and I used to breed dobes. IMHO they are the best breed of dogs to have. If you ask me to describe a dobe in one word I would say "characterful" (not a real word I know).

From what the OP is describing this is pretty standard dobe behavior. As you probably already know a dog is a social creature with a hierarchy. Normally it should be you (the owner) at the top of the pecking order (the alpha dog so to speak).

From the attitude that you are describing it seems as if your dog was either not trained properly when young or was not trained by you. (Dobermans are generally a one person dog. If you are the owner the dog will go to great lengths to keep you safe - speakin from experience here.) However you have no need to worry. The old maxim that "you cant teach an old dog new tricks" does NOT apply to dobermans. I once adopted a 2 year old dobe which was never trained and was kept on a farm without much human contact. Within 2 weeks I potty trained her, thought her a new name and thought her how to stack and heel within a month smile.gif

So in response to your first issue, take this coming weekend off to spend ALOT of quality time with your dog. The dobe that I mentioned earlier had free reign of my house when I was awake and at home so she was always with me while I was at home. After she was potty trained she used to sleep in my room. Make sure that you are the only person who feeds him for the next 2 weeks or so. When you call him for food call him by his name. Be very supportive and heap on the compliments. For example when he greets you in the morning reply him with a hug and a "good morning, <insert dogs name here>. While talking to your dog make sure you exaggerate your tone of voice. Be extra sweet. Your dog doesnt really speak english but he can understand your tone of voice VERY clearly.

In response to the other issues that you are having, dobes are natural born mischief makers. They are basically like little children and you have to treat them like little children. If you kid does something that you do not approve off tell him off immediately. Dont ever punish your dog unless you actually catch him in the act. So next time he grabs your shoes immediately say NO, BAD DOG or something to that effect. Now Ive met a lot of breeders and owners in my time some good some bad. Im sure you are aware that some owners actually beat their dogs in an attempt to discipline them. I do not condone beating of animals (or humans for that matter) in anyway what so ever. However there are some people who use rolled up newspaper for the sound that it makes without actually hurting the animal. Besides I would strongly recommend that you have a loving and trusting relationship with your doberman ... its most definitely not a dog that you want to have turn around and bite/nip you because you were causing it pain (My doberman used to bite through mutton bones as if it was cardboard). Although I should say that a doberman will probably let you beat him to death before he would turn around and bite the hand that feeds him.

Finally another word of advice is that if you have other family members in your family get them to play with you dog and feed him once in awhile. As I said earlier dobermans are a one man dog and you definitely dont want your doberman barking (or worse) at your spouse/gf/bf when you have a fight with them (happened to me before tongue.gif). Also if you dont want your doberman to be overly aggressive let your friends socialize with him as well. They are still extremely good guard dogs even when you socialize them this way.

Finally I wish you and your dobe all the best. I am very sure that the two of you will have a very meaningful relationship in the years to come. Sorry for the wall of text and PM if you need anymore info on dobes in general.

Hello. Everyone has different ways on how to train their dogs. Golden rule is to learn to walk before you fly. First teach your dog its name. Then to come to you and so on and so forth. If you are in KL they regularly hold classes in many places. Otherwise you can ask around for a dog trainer to help you. I learnt from friends who were also bred show dogs so its not something that I can help you via a forum. However I did get alot of information from books and online as well. You could even check youtube out.

Btw doberman skin problem isnt necessarily due to food. Doberman's like most other purebred dogs have got certain genetic disorders that afflict the dobe subspecies. Dobes are susceptible to skin disorders (looks like dandruff) and heart problems.

Hi friend, I am looking for Dobe puppy now, but I found that it is quite hard to get the dobe breeder. Can you recommend some here? I am from Perak. Thanks.

i think whatever breed, even dogs and cats, if they're being socialise at young age, getting along well shouldn't be a problem.
