Doberman Pinscher Breed Guide
Tuesday 27 November 2012
Contrary to the beliefs the Doberman Pinscher is a very nice and child-loving breed. It is playful and vigilant dog with guarding instincts and is also very attentive. Therefore it is as good as a working dog as a loving family member even near a baby!
Dobermans are the only German breed that bears the name of their originator. Friedrich Louis Doberman was a tax-collector but he also provided the duties of a flayer or a skinner. Thus he came into contact with the breeds. Although he didn’t keep a record on Doberman’s evolution, we may suppose that the actual appearance of a Doberman Pinscher was influenced by the Rottweiler, the blue dog, the schnauzer and different other mixtures. Therefore, despite his very elegant and gentle-structured appearance, it became the most intelligent and best working dog among all.
The Doberman as a Watchdog
It is important to firmly and consistently educate and socialize a Doberman Pinscher. Appropriate treatment can make him a loyal, devoted and affectionate companion. They generally don’t deserve their reputation as an aggressive dog.
The Doberman is a true watchdog and typically to his breed he barks quite a lot. Dobermans are very brave, agile and intelligent, being an easy and quick learner, too. Dobermans love to work and requires a lot of exercise. His power has no limits being a really tough breed. It will not let strangers enter the house but if he can see his master do this and showing this to him, he accepts the decision.
