We have a doberman that is 4 months old, he is very hyper. When will he settle down?

His breeder should have warned you about how active a healthy young Doberman can be. In many bloodlines the males are much more active that the females. My males are in motion every minute they are awake and not under a command! Expect your Dobe to "grow up" and "relax" as much as he ever will between 2 years and 2 and 1/2 years of age.

NEVER! it's the breed lol Settle when sleeping or eating lol but they are a working blood line that requires mental and physical challenges....YES! Training should have already been started. Puppy socialization classes or 8-9 mths. Obedience Classes. I find treats (hot dogs, animal crackers) are helpful in keeping their attention. You have purchased a life time of energy. They do settle somewhat around 2 1/2 to 3 yrs. But they will always be active and looking for something to do (good or bad) so your input will keep in on the "good" side. Good Luck and keep your Dob busy as possible.
