Overview
Originating in Germany during the 1860s, the Doberman Pinscher was used as a personal guardian and watchdog, vermin eradicator, sheep herder, and gun-dog. Developed by Louis Dobermann, this breed is one of a few to be named after an actual person. This noble and proud breed served heroically during both World Wars and is the official combat dog of the United States Marine Corps.
Character
Muscular, elegant, and graceful, the Doberman Pinscher is medium to large in size. This breed is courageous, resourceful, bold, and highly intelligent. They are one of the most respected and popular dog breeds; known for their deep devotion and protective nature.

Does your Doberman Pinscher bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Versatile, fearless, and assertive, the Doberman Pinscher thrives on human companionship and stimulation. They are exceedingly loyal and protective of their family and home. This breed does best with older, well-behaved, and considerate children. They do not typically get along well with other household pets. They are aloof and reserved with strangers and make excellent guard dogs. This people oriented breed may closely bond to one particular family member. The Doberman Pinscher requires constant attention and does not do well if left alone for extended periods of time or is in a two-career family. They are not recommended for the novice, inexperienced, or sedentary owner.
Care
Doberman Pinschers require minimal grooming. Occasional brushing or wiping of the coat with a damp cloth will minimize loose hair. Dental hygiene is crucial to prevent early tooth loss. It is also important to keep their nails trimmed short. Bathing or dry shampooing should only be done when absolutely necessary. The Doberman Pinscher is prone to Wobbler Syndrome, Von Willebrands Disease, bloat, hip dysplasia, and congenital heart disorders. They do not do well in cold climates.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The coat of the Doberman Pinscher is thick, smooth, short, hard, and close-fitting. The color of the coat comes in fawn, red, blue, black and tank, and black. There are typically rust colored markings above the eyes, on the muzzle, throat, legs, feet, chest, and below the tail. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
The Doberman Pinscher is easy to train but requires a dominant owner. Early socialization and obedience are crucial to prevent shyness, timidity, and aggression. They will not respond to harsh or heavy-handed methods. This breed does best with positive reinforcement, firmness, fairness, consistency, and respect. The Doberman Pinscher excels in competitive obedience, schutzhund, tracking, search and rescue, police work, and as a therapy dog. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Doberman Pinscher puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
Highly energetic, Doberman Pinschers require daily extensive exercise and stimulation. They enjoy family play sessions and make wonderful walking companions. This breed will do okay in an apartment provided they are sufficiently exercised. However, a securely fenced yard is best for romping and running freely. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Are Doberman Pinscher's good family dogs?

The Doberman Pinscher can be a great family dog as long as the dog is well socialized and from a good breeder who temperament tests all of his/her puppies. Positive Reinforcement Training techniques work really well in training this breed to be a loving, protective companion for the whole family.

Doberman Pinscher's are fabulous dogs! I have had 3 now. My first two lived to be 12 and 15 years of age. Raise them with love from the onset when they are puppies and you will have a loving dog. You do though have to make sure the Doberman knows his place. If you are a responsible dog owner and love your Doberman, he will love you and your family right back. I just adopted 2 cats that I got from an elderly lady who didn't want to take them to the shelter. My Dobie is fine with them.

Doberman Pinscher I am very interested in adopting a Doberman. My only concern is I have a small family dog 7 years old. Is it possible to have them both, successfully?

It is possible that they can live together without an issue. However, you must understand what prey drive is and why some dogs have a high prey drive then others. Prey drive is the drive that makes a dog chase things that move quickly, whether other dogs, cats, deer or even cars. It does not mean your dog is aggressive unless he/she acts aggressively when he/she gets closer to its target. But with proper training and lots of socialization, your dog can develop self-control to not act on that instinct. But anytime there is a significant difference in size, all interactions should be supervised.

Dobermans can get along with just about anything if raised correctly. We have guinea foul wandering around all the time. We have cats they tolerate, but mostly they have to be trained not to think of them as something to chase for the fun of it. We've occasionally had some strong alpha mentality Dobes both male and female, that would not accept being challenged by any other dogs unless they had been raised with them and learned from the start that play is fine, aggression is a "No". They are the exception for the most part, they learn from good exposure and socialization that good behavior is rewarded. The keys - exposure and socialization can not be overstressed. Bringing a new pup into the family that includes other dogs -- you'll get what you create.

My male Doberman is 6 years old & he has always been a great dog. When I brought him in the house the other night he slept on the couch next to me (once I let him lay on when he's inside). When the morning came, I was running late to work & he was still sleeping. I frantically yelled @ him" get up!" He ignored me as he was half asleep. Long story short, I went to grab him by him collar to pull him down & he rose up & bit/nipped my hand . This happened 3 times of me attempting to grab him. After the last release of my arm he jumped down as I started crying . Not in fear but thinking I'll have to put him down. He immediately did what he was told. He ran like he knew he did something wrong. What do I do?

What your Doberman did was called a reaction bite, which means that your dog was startled and bit as he didn't know what situation was going on. He ran because he knows that he is not supposed to bite people. It is up to you to decide what to do now. You need to go to the hospital and get your wounds checked for sure. But after that, it is up to you to choose whether to put him down or not. What you should do is contact a Positive Reinforcement Training in your area that can help you work through this situation.

It sounds like there is some confusion about who is dominant in the household. If you do not take that role firmly with a Doberman, he will.
The first thing I would do is revoke furniture privileges. The next thing I would do is remain calm! Acting frantic and frustrated around any dog is basically a sign of instability to the dog and they will not respect it.

We've had 5 Dobermans and not a one would dare challenge us in any way. They were all made to sit and wait for each meal and were not allowed to eat until they were "released" to do so. It is not cruel or harsh. It is one of the many ways we provide structure and a clear message to the dog - you are running the show and he is following.

When it comes to being dominant and submissive, that is between dogs. Between dogs and humans, there is a much more complicated dynamic, but it does not include you being 'dominant' over your dog. Being dominant means that you physically dominate your dog, whether by pushing him around or by physically moving him. But with humans, we have taught our dogs to respect us because we are the bringer's of food, play, affection, etc. What your dog needs to learn is to respect humans again, so going to a positive reinforcement trainer will help you with how you feel about your dog now.

My sister in law had a female Doberman that started biting. She had it checked and found to have brain tumors.

We once took a dog that was about to be killed as it had bitten a kid for no apparent reason. Snappy dog. Checked him for worms. Loaded with them. Dewormed him and a new dog was born.

How much does a regular Doberman Pinscher cost?

The average price of an AKC or CKC or any other kennel club registered Doberman Pinscher is $1500.00 per puppy. However, they can cost less and more depending on your area and if you plan on shipping the puppy to you, the blood lines of the dog and the breeder itself.

I live in Upstate NY and we do get cold weather. How will the Doberman handle a cold climate?

The main thing to understand is how a dog feels in the cold compared to a person. A dog with little to no hair, ie: Chinese Crested Dog will feel just as if someone is wearing a bikini outside in the same weather. A dog with short hair: Dalmatian, will feel the same as a person wearing a light jacket in the same weather. A dog with medium/wire hair, ie: Labrador/Wire Hair Fox Terrier, will feel the same as a person in that weather wearing a cotton jacket. A dog with long hair and/or double or more coat, ie: Newfoundland/Rough Collie, will feel the same as a person wearing a proper winter jacket. So, if you need a jacket, so does your Dobie. Make sure to watch your dog at all times and know the signs of hypothermia. In general, your Dobie will be fine, as long as the walks are brisk and you don't ever leave your dog outside alone in the cold.

Having had Dobermans in Chicago the reason for your question is understood. The two short answers are: 1. They will do fine. 2. Watch & know your dog. Leave them outside with not protection: the same should be done to the owner. Going for a reasonable walk in a cold blustery day - be reasonable. In summer & winter: watch for dehydration. Subzero or 115-degree day: put on booties. Watch him while outside & when you return to the house.
