Behavior & Training > HELP A. Akita won't stop humping certian male dog

Honestly, it sounds like your Akita puppy is having a lot of FUN! What a lot of people forget to mention is that humping is a display of excitement. Also, humping gets them attention, and puppies love attention. They don't care if it is good or bad attention, it is all the same. Your pup probably humps Lance when Lance isn't playing with him, when there is a lull in the chase or when they're laying around being boring. Humping gets Lance up and moving, although he is showing his teeth and telling your pup to go away, Zeus is having a lot of fun, and it is so fun and reinforcing that he is going to do it again and again...

Best way to get him to stop? Channel that energy somewhere else. You have to be more fun than humping Lance. wink Or, just don't let him do it, and it won't be reinforced.

Behavior & Training > Considering purchasing 2 Dobermans opinions or and advice?

yeah I thought you meant getting both of them at the same time. Although I think it might be better to add another at around 18 + months old, if you go on to DobermannTalk forums, the Doberteen stage (10 months) can get a little dramatic.. adding another pup then just might drain you.

However I do not see any problems in having two Dobes.. go to a good breeder and ask if their dogs do well with other dogs.. Some lines of Dobe are super dog-friendly, others are same sex aggressive.. so find a breeder you get along with because if you hit any rough patches they will be there to help.

1 1/2 to 2 years is my ideal age to add another dog. Some add them sooner.. others later. Could always put a deposit down and see where you and your pup are in 10 months and decide from there.

I really love Dobes and almost adopted one.. have fun. They're great dogs. smile

If you add 2 dogs then you'll have 3 dogs total and will be violating your contract.

Dobe puppies are a lot of work, and I don't think any reputable breeder would give you 2 pups or give you a pup if they knew you had another.. Why do you need 2 anyways ?

I would not gamble on this.

Just got wonderful news that Nare's tumor was benign, yay!
This time the vet referred to it as an epulis, lol.
Question is, if it comes back, should I remove it? as long as it doesn't bother him it should be okay, right ? or if you don't remove it right away, can it become cancerous ?

Well, if its when shes unsure of her surroundings.. go to new (quiet) places and practice all of these things! smile Maybe take her to a familiar place (not home) and practice.. then a less frequent place.. and slowly add new ones.

How do you think Shadow would react if the vet came to your home ?

Lol! Most everything I do is self taught, through youtube or reading up. That was always my view.. Why the heck does everyone take their dogs to classes when all of this info is available to them ? But then I realized.. some people don't do well without being shown how.. or do not have the dedication.. patience.. motivation ? But if they spend money on it, they do. Even then, a lot of classes I have attended.. first class there is 10 people, last there is 3. Depends on their priorities.

I personally signed up for it because it keeps me dedicated. I'm the person who does just enough to title or to teach the trick.. then I dont keep up. frown

But, I can sympathize about everyone elses dog being perfect! With Nare and Arkane.. I could teach them anything at 8 weeks old. Tavi is 12 weeks and doesn't even know her name! laugh out loud It is something I'm not used to. I know how to teach this stuff, but not at such a slow pace lol.

Theres a 13 week old Labrador that is finished with the whole first lecture! Its driving me nuts watching him!
