I have an 8 month Dobermann and she pulls on the lead, we have tried head collars but they just made her nose sore and bleed because she has short hair. Any suggestions would help or do I grin and bear it because she is still a puppy?

No! Don't grin and bear it, the more she is allowed to pull the more it will reinforce her pulling. She needs to learn to walk on a loose lead, and the only way she will learn is if she is taught (and I don't mean by giving leash corrections).
My lurcher was a nightmare puller when younger, I taught him loose lead walking with the help of this articlehttp://www.clickersolutions.com/articles/2002/pulling.htm
there are lots of techniques that can help stop pulling, but for me that article was the most helpful. Also you have posted your question as a blog so not many people will see it. If you post it in the 'Behaviour' section you will get many more replies and lots of helpful tips :)
