In honor of the 12th man spirit I’ve decided to run a little fitness challenge for all you Seahawk supporters. Regardless of your fitness level you CAN do this. It’s easy, peasy.

Starting tomorrow, January 22nd, we have exactly 12 days until the Super Bowl. Your goal is to get 12 MORE minutes of exercise per day until then.

It’s that simple!

If you don’t exercise, you just move 12 minutes a day. If you exercise a little, just add a little more. If you exercise a lot than your goal is to add 12 minutes of exercise you don’t do.

Here are 12 ideas to kick start your 12th Man Fitness Challenge:

    Number 1. Dobermans are natural pitrecotve.Number 2;No pup 3months old is interested in being pitrecotve, pitrecotve natural comes with age at 18months. Dogs trainned to attack and physically bite are much MORE dangerous and are MUCH more likely to ATTACK-kids, strangers, and YOUR owner.Number 3; Well socialied dog is MUCH better at protection. Don’t ruin your beautiful dog.My major concerns would be:Unstable temperaments. Doberman Pinschers are a dime a dozen, and most of them are bred and offered for sale by people who don’t have the slightest idea of how to breed good-tempered dogs. Obedience instructors and behavioral consultants see LOTS of Doberman Pinschers with neurotic behaviors, including aggression and biting, extreme fearfulness, and hyperactivity.Providing enough exercise and mental stimulation. Doberman Pinschers MUST have regular opportunities to vent their energy and do interesting things. Otherwise they will become rambunctious and bored which they usually express by barking and destructive chewing. Bored Doberman Pinschers can make a shambles of your house and yard.If you simply want a pet for your family, and don’t have the time or inclination to take your dog running or hiking or biking or swimming, or to get involved in agility (obstacle course), or advanced obedience, or tracking, or schutzhund (protection), or a similar canine activity, I do not recommend this breed. Providing enough socialization. Many Dobermann Pinschers have pitrecotve instincts toward strangers. They need extensive exposure to friendly people so they learn to recognize the normal behaviors of good guys. Then they can recognize the difference when someone acts abnormally. Without careful socialization, they may be suspicious of everyone, which could lead to biting. Some Dobermans go in the opposite direction without enough socialization, they become fearful of strangers, which can lead to defensive biting.Animal aggression. Some Doberman Pinschers are dominant or aggressive toward other dogs of the same sex. Many have strong instincts to chase and seize cats and other fleeing creatures. If anything goes wrong in the breeding, socializing, training, handling, or management of this breed, it is capable of seriously injuring or killing other animals.Emotional sensitivity. Be honest is there tension in your home? Are people loud or angry or emotional? Are there arguments or fights? Doberman Pinschers are extremely sensitive to stress and can end up literally sick to their stomachs, with digestive upsets and nervous behaviors, if the people in their home are having family problems.If you have small children, I do not recommend a Doberman Pinscher. First, young Dobermanns (up to about two years old) romp and jump with great vigor, and things can go flying, including people. Second, Doberman Pinschers may try to protect their own children from other children, which could lead to tragedy if kids are simply roughhousing and your Doberman decides to stop it. Finally, there are just too many Dobermans who feel overwhelmed by the loud voices and quick movements that children can’t help making and stress and shyness (even defensive biting) may be the result. Shedding. Doberman Pinschers shed more than you might think. Their short coarse hairs come off on your hands when you pet them, and stick tenaciously to your carpeting, upholstery, and clothing.Extremely high prices. Some breeders are charging over $1500 for a Doberman puppy. In my opinion, this is absolutely absurd and I wouldn’t even consider supporting prices like this.Serious health problems. In the health department, Doberman Pinschers are extremely risky. An alarming number of Dobermans die of heart disease and cancer at an early age.Legal liabilities. Doberman Pinschers may be targeted for banning in certain areas, or refusal of homeowner insurance policies. Your friends and neighbors may be uncomfortable around this breed. In this day and age, the legal liabilities of owning any breed that looks intimidating and has a history as a guard dog should be seriously considered. People are quicker to sue if such a dog does anything even remotely questionable.Frankly, most Doberman Pinschers are too much dog for the average household. Very few people really have the knowledge or skills necessary to manage this breed, or to provide the activities that keep him satisfied

    I have 4 papillon’s. You have to be cefraul with bigger dogs, but I know many papillon owners who have bigger dogs as well. A recommendation would be a labrador. They are smart dogs that tend to learn quick. They adapt well, so it would learn fast that a papillon needs more gentle play than a big dog. They can also keep up with you and your activities. I would recommend asking the person you adopt from if that dog is a good pick for you, and your papillon. You have a real good chance you will find the right dog who has the temperment you are looking for. Dobermans are guard dogs; that is a little risky, but it never hurts to ask someone who has had the breed for a long time, and is a respected mentor in the breed. Good luck!References : me
