    Default Hello from Tassie!

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Jess and I'm a new member!

    My partner Robbie and I are picking up our very first dog, a purebred dobermann, in about 7 weeks time.

    We're pretty excited, but we've never had our own dog - we're really keen to become good dog owners however so I'm here hoping to learn as much as I can.

    I'm generally a cat person, and have made great friends and received heaps of support from a similar forum for cats, so I'm hoping to find a similar thing here.

    Nice to meet you all!

    Cheers,
    Jess

    Dobermans need a lot of training and socialisation to make sure they become happy friendly adults.
    And beware of their tails. They're like whips when they wag them.

    The whole forum will be here to help you with everything you need to know....as long as you post photos when you get him

    Thanks for the welcome!

    I have heard that a Dobermann can sweep a whole coffee table clean with their tails!

    Although I dont really know anything about dogs, I'm of the impression that all dogs need a lot of training - if only most of the dog owners I know thought so too.... *grin*

    Hi Jessica

    If it's a puppy you're getting - find yourself a nice puppy school and take it along to that. Ask around anyone you know who has a dog, or even the place you're getting your dog from , to recommend a place.

    You need to learn how to train a dog too, so after puppy pre-school -where there should be some training of the owners - find an obedience dog club or school and go to that too.

    Look up clicker training on the net.
    Read this website and watch the Ian Dunbar vids on youtube.
