I am a first-time dog owner and recently got a Doberman puppy. I am not sure what types of behavior to expect from him as a puppy. I have heard mixed opinions about the breed, and I just want to make sure that everything is normal.
My puppy is currently 12 weeks old and seems to be chewing on everything in sight. He also has zoomies where he'll run around the house like crazy for a few minutes. He's overall very friendly and loves to snuggle, but he does get a bit nippy when he plays.
Is this normal behavior for a Doberman puppy? How long should I expect the chewing and zoomies to last? How can I help him stop nipping during playtime?
Thank you for your help in advance.
