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.
How dog-friendly is New Mexico?
New Mexico has some room to grow when it comes to its animal-friendly laws and accommodations. On the plus side, a few New Mexico cities are super dog-friendly, and the state is a great destination for visitors traveling with their pups.
Let’s look at a few studies into New Mexico’s dog-friendly rankings.
Animal advocacy group Pawsafe ranked New Mexico as the 35th most pet-friendly state of all 50 states. They examined several factors, including animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, and the number of dog parks and hiking trails. Unfortunately, they didn’t rank New Mexico very well for its animal welfare laws, which address things like animal abuse, neglect, or even fighting.
Another study by a safety review website, Safewise, actually ranked New Mexico last of all 50 states. The ranking has a lot to do with animal welfare laws and access to pet services.
Overall, we’re hopeful that New Mexico makes some improvements for its dogs and dog lovers!

Yes! The good news is that New Mexico has some great pet-friendly destinations. A study by Wallethub ranked the 100 largest cities in the country by their pet-friendliness. Here’s how New Mexico’s biggest city stacked up.
Albuquerque is the biggest city in New Mexico with a little over half a million people. The city ranked very well at 14th out of 100 cities.
They placed 16th for pet budget and 7th for outdoor pet-friendliness. The city lagged behind a bit for pet health and wellness, ranking 83rd.
A separate study by the Trust for Public Land (TPL) shares great information about dog parks. They published a ranking of the 100 largest cities to see which has the most dog parks per capita. Albuquerque ranked well in the 13th spot with 2.4 dog parks per 100,000 people.
