Adopter Success Kit

Congrats on adopting a DHDR Doberman!

You have us as a resource for life. At this point, you’ve signed your contract, and have your new family member at home. Within 48 business hours of your adoption, you’ve been sent health records and DHDR has initiated the license transfer, if you live in Maricopa County. DHDR has also begun your microchip transfer and introduced you to the post-adoption counselor. Some other helpful resources:


Slow Introduction

The Slow Introduction to other animals in the household is the most critical component of a new adoption, and is required for DHDR adopters and fosters.

Two Week Shut Down

Aside from integrating with other animals, a new dog needs time to decompress to set it up for success. These tips from another rescue are helpful for a harmonious new home.

Our resources section has important information and contacts for training, health, and more. Don’t forget to check out our blog for great tips as well!

Lastly, be sure you read up on our Holter Monitoring Program, a benefit to Volunteers and Adopters!

Don’t forget to send us updates – we love photos. In fact, we post happy forever family photos every Friday and love to use them on our Instagram.  Follow us on Facebook and join our Facebook Group to stay in touch!

Keep an eye out each spring for an invite to our annual adopters picnic. Email with any post-adoption questions or to get support and help!

Nothing on this website is meant to replace the advice of your vet or a qualified trainer/behaviorist. Suggestions here are just suggestions. Before you decide on any action, please consult a professional. Any decision you make is your decision and your responsibility, not ours. Make learning about your Doberman something that lasts your Doberman’s whole life.
