We picked up our 8 month old male Wednesday. He was one of the breeders keepers but she is placed him due to her health. We have been researching the breed for a year and decided the time was right after loosing our 10 year old doberman female to add a show pup.
I am a little worried about him being so jumpy with him suppose to be a show dog. I know the breed is suppose to be aloof to strangers and he is settling in the family nicley. He stays right by our sides and loves the 2 legged kids and is doing well the the other dobes in the house. But if someone sneezes he runs from the room.
Had him out today and he met my sister and BIL and he was just as stiff and I had to make him stand still in order for them to pet. I worry about this jumpy stuff with him supose to be going in the show ring Is this something we can work through with more outings around strange people?
