The Doberman thrives on attention from humans. They get along well with children, as long as they have been raised with them.

Common Name(s) Doberman Pinscher, Dobermann, Doberman, Dobie
Breed Type The Doberman Pinscher is a working breed. Known for being a great guard dog, the Doberman is increasingly sought after as a family dog. This breed is best suited to warm climates.
Background Doberman Pinschers originated in Germany in the late 1800s. Its ancestry includes a number of breeds, and there is some debate as to which exact breeds were used. Some that are widely agreed upon include the Pinscher, Rottweiler, Greyhound, Great Dane, Weimaraner, and German Shorthaired Pointer. The goal of the Doberman's breeding was to create a strong, ferocious, yet loyal guard dog and companion.
Description The Doberman Pinscher is a muscular dog with a short, stiff coat. Colors include black, black and tan, blue-gray, red, and fawn. White Dobermans are also found on occasion, but are not accepted by some clubs. The Doberman's eyes are dark, and its ears houndlike if not cropped. The tail is very long, but is usually docked where permitted. Males measure 26-28 inches in height, and females 24-26 inches. Weight is 66-88 pounds for both sexes.
Care and Feeding The Doberman's diet should include beef, horse meat, corn, and wheat. Dobermans do not require much grooming. They should be brushed and bathed only as needed. Traditionally, Doberman Pinscher puppies' tails are docked, and their ears cropped and taped to make them stand up. But many countries have outlawed the practices, and many kennel clubs allow the dogs to be shown with or without cropping and docking. Dobermans need yearly checkups. Vaccinations should be administered on the following schedule:
Dobies shed moderately. Regular vacuuming is required.
Housing Your Dog The Doberman should be kept indoors, but needs to get out for exercise each day. It is important to keep this breed warm.
Social Behaviors Socialization is important for Dobermans, and should be started as early as possible. They do well with children if raised with them. They are often aggressive toward other pets, especially dogs.
Handling and Training This breed requires firm, consistent training. Although the Doberman can be stubborn, it is highly intelligent and eager to please his owner.
Activities The Doberman is a high-energy breed, and it needs lots of exercise. It should be taken on a walk or jog each day, and also enjoys intense play sessions.
Breeding/Reproduction When selecting a mate for your Doberman, it is important to check bloodlines for genetic health problems. Things to look for include Von Willebrand's disease, heart problems, wobbler disease, eye problems, and cancer.
Common Health Problems Dobermans are prone to bloat, and should be fed two or three small meals each day instead of one to help prevent it. They may also become overweight as they age, so regular exercise and proper diet are crucial.
Availability Doberman Pinschers are fairly easy to find. Prices can be anywhere from $400 to $2,000 or more.
Norma - 2013-10-17 I first got to know about the Doberman in the mid sixties in Scotland. A boyfriend and his dad used to breed the Doberman & the German Shepherd. They would train them for Security and Police work. They would take them to factories as guard dogs for nights. After coming to South Africa in 1972 my husband and I decided to get a Doberman, a bitch called Susie, we eventually after searching high and low decided to breed her. She was a gentle dog when needed but a great guard dog and would never leave my side. Since Susie I have had 8 Dobermans, the latest 2 being Duke & Apollo, Duke is now 15 years old, he is the longest living Doberman that I have ever had. He is going deaf and is short sighted and suffers a little from arthritis, but before this, he has never been ill. He has been a loyal companion and friend that I will miss dearly when he goes over the rainbow bridge. Apollo is 4 years, and Duke has trained him well, they are both my constant companions, even sleeping in my bedroom on their own beds. I have had numerous breeds of dogs, but although all were loved, the Doberman has stolen my heart and I would pick one over any other breed. Oh by the way they are great with children, I have had 6 children and now have 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.
barbara - 2011-03-09 Dobermans DON'T need wheat or corn; in fact a lot of dogs are allergic to wheat and corn. A raw diet or a high quality kibble, preferable grain-free, would be a much better choice.
