How much is it to get your Dobermans ears cropped?

My vet charged $300 for it, and it included all the tapings. But having said this, he asked for a commitment from me to see it through. You must be willing to do work as well, it is not as simple as surgery and immediately ears stand. It is a process that takes a few months. The day of surgery mine had a flexible collar on and ears taped. The ears stayed taped for 1 week. Then we went back to the vet and had them taken down. One reason to see how they were healing and to 'air' them out. They stayed untaped for a day. Then back to the vet to be taped for a few days, then tape off for a day. This sequence continues until the ears stand. I learn how to take the tape off so that didnt require a vet visit, but my vet wanted to do all the tapings. So I went to the vet on the average of 2 times a week for 10-12 weeks. When the tape is off -- you must exercise the ears. This means whistling, making screeching sounds anything that makes a dogs ears go to attention. My vet suggested also to get balloons and make the screeching sounds with them. Both my babies have beautiful erect ears and it was alot of work but well worth it. Do your research on the appropriate vet and what type of cut you are looking for. Search the internet for pictures that you like of the cut and take them with you to the vet's office. Also, if your vet is responsible the he or she will have pictures of previous cuts they have done. Take your time and make the best selections for you!

What was the Black and Tan Revolt?

it wasnt so much a revolt but Englands answer to keeping the Irish down. during the trouble times 1916-1922 the Irish Republician Brotherhood( I.R.B.)later the I.R.A. where a thorn in the side of the British government and so the British sent over a unit of 'elite'soldiers to sort out the problem. they where known as the Black and Tans because that was the pattern of their uniform. they weren't that elite as they shot and harrasaed unarmed people mainly in the city of Dublin they blew up small towns outside the city and eventully went home as the fighting Irish refused to fall under their bully tactics.

The Black and Tans were ex-servicemen brought over to support the RIC(Royal Irish Constabulary). The name comes from their uniform which was a mixture of police and army.

Is it possible to clip a Dobermans ears at the age of 5 months?

It is possible to have ears cropped at 5 months, although the best time to do this is between 10-12 weeks of age. At 5 months the cartilage in the ears is more developed and will be much harder to get to stand. I have 2 dobermans a male and a female both with ears cropped at 10 weeks. They both have a medium to long cut, not quite as long as the show cut. With tapings every week, ears in tape for 4 days, without tape for a day or so, it still takes from 8-12 weeks for them to stand on their own. You must be patient and go to a vet that is experienced in cropping. Not all vets do this and consider it 'cosmetic' surgery. You must be willling to go the distance with this. Commit yourself to going to the vet every week - twice a week. If you are not willing to commit then I suggest you do not crop the ears. At 5 months of age your committment will be much more intense and take longer. And at this age really do your homework on selection of a vet to do it. There are like I said earlier few vets that crop and less that have experience with cropping at the age of your dog. I would select a vet with much experience with your select issues, and probably one that has done reconstruction on poorly cropped ears. My vet has this experience and would recommend him to anyone. I am very fortunate to have this vet in my area, whereas there are other owners that have to travel quite some distance to find a vet with good experience. Good luck and I hope it turns out well for you. My feelings are and I know this is highly controversial but I believe a doberman looks like a hound dog with uncropped ears.

Allergies

Why do some people have allergic reactions to insects and others do not?

For the same reason that some people are allergic to peanuts or milk and others aren't. It's partly environmental (based on your exposure to the offending item) and partly genetic. My brother used to catch and crush (yeah he was troubled) bees, and they often stung him. One day he had a severe reaction and has to avoid bees. Maybe it's karma but his doctor says he developed the allergy thru overexposure to bee venom. Other people can have a fatal reaction to their first bee sting.

Overexposure to an allergen will result in excessive production of IgE. B Cells in our body usually produce IgG displayed on their surface and very little of this IgG is changed to IgE (a process called Class Switching) in non-respondng individuals. For those who become allergic due to to overexposure the class switching (from IgG to IgE) increases, IgE is the antibody which can bind with mast cells and Basophils which contain active substances leading to allergic reactions. Depending upon the location these active chemicals (Histamine etc) can produce vasodilation, increased permeability of blood vessels, bronchospasm, excessive production of mucous which results in symptoms we see.

Why are anime guys so hot?

Anime guys are so hot because they're not real. They can do anything like fly, kill, and even perform magic. Also, you never see an anime hero with some kind of deformity, unless its something cool like a metallic arm. They are portrayed as perfect unlike Roman mythical beings like Jupiter. They are always faster, stronger, and smarter than their enemies. (Which can be hot too, but only because they appeal to our darker nature.) You follow them through their transgressions until the end, so you grow a bond with them.

Because everyone knows that guys in real can't possibly match up with them xD

And so, you tend to feel an attachment to all the hot guys you see. And cute ones too xD

Guys are SOOO hawt in anime xD ---- Yes, veyr true! ^^ Mangakas or anime directors want to attrak people to watch/read the show/book so they can get money and live, since it's their business. But really, there ARE hot guys in real world. I've seen a guy who studies in the library and he looked exactly the same as L (from death note) and Yamamoto (Katekyo hitman reborn). It was amazing. Yes, yes, hot sexy guys are the best!!! XDDD

How many toys do Doberman Pinscher need?

When it comes to dobermans, it's not really how many you buy them but what kind. Dobermans are very smart dogs, therefore toys that really work their minds are perfect. Buy the tough plastic or rubber toys that hold treats inside of them. They have to work to get the treats inside and they won't get bored easily because Dobermans are not the type of dogs to give up quickly. Also, Doberman owners swear by rope toys. They are durable and they will always want to play with it if you hold it up.

ps. don't waste your money on toys with squeakers or toys that are stuffed with cotton. They don't last long, they leave a mess once the dogs rip them apart, and your dog will lose interest quickly.

I have two Doberman Pinschers and I love them dearly.

What if you mate a albino Doberman with black and tan?

It is not recommended to breed from albino Dobermanns as this condition causes impaired vision, weak immune system, hearing loss/deafness and sunburn. However, if you were to breed an albino Dobermann with a black and tan one the resulting puppies will almost all be black and tan. In a litter of four there are likely to be one albino puppy and three black and tan puppies. This is because darker colours are more dominant.

What is the origin of the German shepherd dog?

The German Shepherd dog was developed from prick eared European herding and farm dogs in the late 1800s. During 1899 a German dog fancier and cavalry officer, Captain Max Von Stephanitz, purchased a herding dog named Hektor Linksrhein that greatly impressed him. He brought the dog to his vast Estate in Grafath Germany. Von Stephanitz subsequently renamed the dog Horand v Grafrath. On April 22, 1899 Von Stephanitz, Adolf Meyer, Ernst Von Otto and others, formed the Verein fur Deutsche Schaferhunde (SV) in Germany. The translation of this name is roughly, "The German Shepherd Dog Club of Germany". The SV started a registration book and Harand v Grafrath became the first registered German Shepherd Dog. On Sept. 20, 1899, the SV adopted a breed standard based on the proposals of Meyer and Von Stephanitz and later held its first specialty show at Frankfurt-am-Main, using the titles Sieger and Siegerin. The development of the German Shepherd Dog had begun.

How do you stop a Doberman Puppy from biting?

If your puppy was separated from its litter after 8 weeks, it should be easy. If it was separated before it was with weeks old,then it will have a life-long problem with psychological development issues.

In either case, all you have to do is a loud "yelp" every time it bites. It will soon associate the sound with a negative feedback.
