Hey everyone, I recently adopted a Doberman and I am already in love with him. However, I am quite new to owning a dog and I want to make sure that I am doing everything right to raise him to be well-behaved. I have been reading about positive reinforcement training and I want to provide him with the best training possible. Can anyone please suggest what kind of training I should provide to my Doberman to help him develop good behavior? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Hello! I also have a Doberman and I've found that providing plenty of positive attention and affection can help prevent bad behavior. Dobies are highly intelligent and sensitive dogs, so they need a lot of love and social interaction from their owners. They thrive on good, positive energy, and giving them plenty of attention and praise can help them feel secure, content, and prevent them from becoming anxious or destructive. Additionally, it's important to establish clear boundaries and house rules. Consistently reward good behavior and discourage unwanted behavior with a firm, but not harsh tone. Dobies are also highly emotional dogs, so try to avoid yelling or using physical punishment as they can be counterproductive and detrimental to your dog's well-being.
