Dobermans Den Posts

A tired dog is a good dog.   We know Dobermans need more exercise and mental stimulation than the average dog. And walking is a great activity for dogs and well as their owners.   Not only is walking good for fitness but it also helps with dogs who experience separation anxiety or nervousness. But sometimes for various reasons, it might not be the best option for you and your dog.  Maybe you live in an area where the climate is extremely cold. Dobermans have short fur and lean bodies which aren’t optimal in freezing temperatures.  Or maybe the owner has health issues, a…

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. Halloween is coming up. Do you dress up your dogs?  

Here are two wonderful old photos of Dobermans.   These were found at this forum link,  http://www.dobermantalk.com/doberman-related-chat/1923-history-dobermann-4.html In the first photo, you can see 3 well-trained Dobermans and one stubborn Doberman waiting for a treat. In the second photo, according to the forum poster, ” shows 2 Dobermann v. Radeland back in the 50’ties, advertising for a dog show in Berlin.” It would be nice to see all these vintage photographs compiled into one beautiful reference book.

You don’t see this every day, a nun in traditional habit clothing walking a Doberman. And here’s another Nun with a Doberman. Sister is on a mission to help prisoners help others  

Yesterday I put down my 11-year-old Doberman. Her legs were failing her that she could no longer walk without falling down. I feel awful right now, but I know it was the right thing to do, and as time goes by I know my heartache will hurt less and less. Now that she’s gone, every time I see something that reminds me of her, my eyes well up with tears. I haven’t felt this sad in a long time. I’m now undecided if I should throw out her favorite toys and any reminders of her, or not. I knew I didn’t want…

We’ve seen Dobermans in the movies. We’ve seen Dobermans in music videos. Now, here are the best Doberman commercials. Let’s start a favorite commercial that was first shown at Super Bowl 2014. What do you get when you mix a Doberman with a Chihuahua? Watch and find out. In this video, it’s Doberman vs BMW. And how do you make a Doberman look even cooler? Give him sunglasses. And another German car commercial. We’ve seen Dobermans with Audi, BMW, and now Opel. This may be the most interesting army recruiting video ever, for the Swedish Armed Forces. Maybe the cutest…

Are You Ruining Your Dog’s Teeth? I was shocked recently to find out that my 11-year-old Doberman has terrible teeth. Here’s a copy of my $2,396 dental vet bill. She had bad periodontal disease, a loose tooth and needed tons of other teeth removed. How had I neglected her dental health? How long has she been in pain? I cried at the dental vet’s office and felt like an awful dog owner. Actually, I cried three times that day. I cried when I got the x-ray results, when I left her for surgery, and when I picked her up after…
