I want to buy a dobro stand to hold my instrument flat & steady. My thinking is that it would provide much better support as I struggle to put on my picks, get my tab set up, etc. Any thoughts on the use of a stand, & where I might buy one?

Some have found keyboard stands handy for that purpose.
The gold standard though, IMO, are the Deluxe 34 stands that now are produced by Asher guitars.

I looked at those, but very pricy. They didn’t recommend their stands for Dobro & recommended I look at keyboard stands.

I don't know how to find the stand but there are quite a few videos of Emily Hogeback playing with one. I believe she is blind and I saw a picture of her fretboard that has no frets.

I have seen pics of a stand using a medical walker with a piece of plywood across the top.

An inexpensive keyboard stand and a really high quality dobro strap might meet all your requirements. If you're not using a strap, it's a good habit to get into and will solve most of the challenges of holding your guitar while you put on picks, set up sheet music etc. 

I have a deluxe34 stand and its real nice. I have brackets for double steels, single dobro, weissenborn---but to be honest, something about a nice dobro guitar sitting up flat on a stand worries me. A strap (with straplock) just seems so much less worrisome. Funny, I don't worry about the lap steels up on the stand--I guess because they are solid planks.

I have a wild one-year old chocolate lab--that might be the root of my paranoia surprise
