Review On Doberman Pinscher
Doberman Pinschers are among the most common of pet breeds, and the breed is well known as an intelligent, alert, and loyal companion dog. These dogs were mostly used as guard dogs, watch dogs, or police dogs. This Dog seems to be slim but is very powerful. It has a life span of around 12 yrs. The traditional Doberman has always been the one that has had both tail and ears cropped.

Appearance
The Doberman Pinscher is agile, elegantly bodied, and powerful. The breed has a short back, well-proportioned chest, and a sinewy, muscular neck. Their legs are straight and parallel. They have well-developed teeth that close in a scissors bite and dark eyes with an intelligent expression. Ears of this breed are usually cropped, and they are often taped for several weeks to prompt them to stand erect. In recent history, many Doberman Pinschers have been left natural- without docking or cropping of the tail and/or ears. The short-haired coat of the Doberman Pinscher is close-fitting, hard, and thick. Coat colors for this breed include black, blue-gray, black & tan, red, fawn, and white. White markings may or may not be present.

Temperament
The Doberman Pinscher is a highly capable guard dog with an energetic personality and intelligent disposition. The breed possesses incredible strength and stamina, and they are adaptable and easy to train. They are courageous and assertive, yet they are not vicious or aggressive. Like any other breed, subtleties in temperament will vary according to the dog. They are regal, loyal, and very affectionate towards members of their family. They are a people-oriented breed, and they require an owner that is capable of disciplining the dog confidently. If allowed his or her own way too much, the Doberman Pinscher can be pushy. This breed is naturally protective, and they don’t need specialized training to be an outstanding guard dog. They should be trained and socialized properly from an early age to prevent over-protective behavior. If raised with children from an early age, they make wonderful family pets. This breed generally isn’t suitable for first-time dog owners.

Summary
The Doberman Pinscher was developed in Germany during the late 19th century, primarily as a guard dog. His exact ancestry is unknown, but he's believed to be a mixture of many breeds, including the Rottweiler, Black and Tan Terrier, and German Pinscher. With his sleek coat, athletic build, and characteristic cropped ears and docked tail, the Doberman Pinscher looks like an aristocrat. He is a highly energetic and intelligent dog, suited for police and military work, canine sports, and as a family guardian and companion.

Doberman Pinscher personality
A super-intelligent and super-active dog--that's what you get when you get a Doberman Pinscher. You also get an extremely loyal, trustworthy dog who's playful and fun-loving with his family. He's a natural protector who won't hesitate to act when he thinks his family is under threat, but he is not aggressive without reason.

The Dobie likes to be busy, physically and mentally. He learns quickly, and training him is easy. Because he learns so fast, it's challenging to keep lessons fresh and interesting. He can have his own ideas about things, though typically he's not overly stubborn or willful with an owner who provides consistent, kind leadership.

The Dobie takes a while to grow up. He remains puppyish until he is three to four years old.

Feeding a Doberman Pinscher
Recommended daily amount: 2.5 to 3.5 cups of high-quality dry food a day, divided into two meals.

NOTE: How much your adult dog eats depends on his size, age, build, metabolism, and activity level. Dogs are individuals, just like people, and they don't all need the same amount of food. It almost goes without saying that a highly active dog will need more than a couch potato dog. The quality of dog food you buy also makes a difference--the better the dog food, the further it will go toward nourishing your dog and the less of it you'll need to shake into your dog's bowl.

Keep your Dobie in good shape by measuring his food and feeding him twice a day rather than leaving food out all the time. If you're unsure whether he's overweight, give him the eye test and the hands-on test.

First, look down at him. You should be able to see a waist. Then place your hands on his back, thumbs along the spine, with the fingers spread downward. You should be able to feel but not see his ribs without having to press hard. If you can't, he needs less food and more exercise.

For more on feeding your Dobie, see our guidelines for buying the right food, feeding your puppy, and feeding your adult dog.

Doberman Pinschers with children or pets
The well-bred Doberman is a wonderful family dog. He is trustworthy and protective of the children in his family, as long as he's been socialized and trained appropriately. Children must be respectful and kind to the Dobie, and he will be just that in return.

As with every breed, you should always teach children how to approach and touch dogs, and always supervise any interactions between dogs and young children to prevent any biting or ear or tail pulling on the part of either party. Teach your child never to approach any dog while he's eating or sleeping or to try to take the dog's food away. No dog, no matter how friendly, should ever be left unsupervised with a child.

He's also friendly with other dogs and animals in his home, especially if he has been raised with them. He can be aggressive toward dogs outside his family if he considers them a threat to his loved ones.

Doberman Pinscher health
Dobies are generally healthy, but like all breeds, they're prone to certain health conditions. Not all Dobies will get any or all of these diseases, but it's important to be aware of them if you're considering this breed.

If you're buying a puppy, find a good breeder who will show you health clearances for both your puppy's parents. Health clearances prove that a dog has been tested for and cleared of a particular condition.

Doberman Pinscher highlights
* The Doberman has a great deal of energy and needs a lot of exercise.
* This breed can be protective, so don't be surprised when he assumes the role of household guardian.
* The Dobie will assume the alpha role in your household if you're not a strong leader. Early, consistent training is critical to establish your role as pack leader.
* The Dobie is sensitive to cold weather and needs adequate shelter in winter (he likes to be in the house next to the fireplace).
* The Doberman Pinscher is a family dog and shouldn't be left alone. He thrives when he's included in family activities.
* The Doberman has gained a reputation as being vicious. Even though your Doberman may have a sweet personality, neighbors and strangers may be afraid of him.
* To get a healthy dog, never buy a puppy from an irresponsible breeder, puppy mill, or pet store. Look for a reputable breeder who tests her breeding dogs to make sure they're free of genetic diseases that they might pass onto the puppies, and that they have sound temperaments.

Doberman Pinscher rescue groups
Dobies are often purchased without any clear understanding of what goes into owning one. There are many Dobies in need of adoption and or fostering. There are a number of rescues that we have not listed. If you don't see a rescue listed for your area, contact the national breed club or a local breed club and they can point you toward a Dobie rescue.

my love for the breed
I have had a Doberman in my house since 1981 and I cannot impress enough how wonderful the breed is. My first girl was almost 15 when she died of natural causes. I was lucky, she was found in the classifieds of a newspaper, yet she was bred well with considertion of the breeds health issues. My second dobe girl went with my "X" in our divorce. The first girl came with me and when she died I located and purchased another Dobe girl (my third) from the classifieds. We were together for only 9 years when her health issues came to surface. She was diagnosed with dicardiomalapia (DCM) which meant the heart pumped in more blood than it pushed out. She received all the best of care, including many visits to the doggie cardiologist. You may think this was crazy on my part but I spent in excess of $6000.00 caring for her until she died. Would I do it again, yes.
Dobermans are wonderful house companions but be careful who you buy one from. A lot of health issues are found amongst the breed so it is prudent to be careful when selecting your next pup or dog. I recommend you check the health issues on line prior to purchasing your Doberman. My next Dobe will be from a Doberman Pinscher Rescue group. Giving one Doberman at a time the kind of life one of those precious creatures is deserving of. The babies cannot help what their mother was bred with and I will take each one and give her all the love in my heart to provide her with the best life possible. If I'm able to care for 20 more homeless babies or only 2, my efforts will be known and appreciated by all of the homeless Dobermsns out there.

Congradulations on owning a pup of the greatest breed of dog!
