Doberman Pinscher Characteristics
The muscular build, shiny coat, and regal appearance of the Doberman Pinscher might make you think of them as canine nobility. While these dogs are bred and well suited for a guard dog position or police K-9 unit role, they have the ability to make great family companions when trained properly.
Doberman Pinschers originated in Germany during the late 1800s, primarily bred as guard dogs. While their exact ancestry is unknown, the Doberman is thought to be a mixture of the German Pinscher, the Rottweiler, and the lesser-known Black and Tan Terrier. They typically stand between 24-28 inches and weigh between 60-80 pounds, often with a red or blue coat.
Doberman Pinschers are a single-coat breed and are moderate shedders throughout the year, so regular grooming is recommended, and frequent brushing will ensure stray hair is kept to a minimum. They are also sensitive to cold weather due to their thin coat, so keeping them indoors during the winter is recommended.
They've gained a reputation as cold and unwelcoming (likely due to their intimidating appearance), but those who have owned a Dobie know they can be as sweet and loving as a Labrador or Bischon Friese when properly trained.
While they can be trained to be great household pets, they are extremely active and require a lot of exercise. The Doberman Pinscher does not do well in small spaces, and a large yard is recommended to prevent bad behavior and escape attempts. They also require adequate mental stimulation and frequent socialization in order to keep them on their best behavior.
