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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Doberman Pinscher puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

Doberman biting 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?

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, ect. 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-law had a female Doberman that started biting. She had it checked and found to have brain tumors.

How much does a regular Doberman pinscher cost?

1 Comment

Anonymous

First off, I don't understand your concept of "regular", as opposed to what? Anyway, 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, if you plan on shipping the puppy to you, the blood lines of the dog and the breeder itself.

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 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. But 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.

Without seeing her, it kind of sounds like mange of some type. I would definitely get your Doberman checked out by a vet to make sure it doesn't spread.

Your Doberman has CDA - color dilution alopecia. It is extremely common in the dilutes (fawns and blues). I had a fawn that was pretty bald but the bumps were minimal. I kept her on salmon oil supplements and a grain free diet. We kept her skin clean by wiping her down (in the direction of hair growth ONLY) with a wash cloth dampened with mouth wash. Your girl is also hypothyroidic so keep a close eye on her T4 panel to make sure she remains between the correct levels and she should do fine. She will never have the soft glossy coat of a red, but she should still be comfortable. Use coats for prolonged outdoor time and overnight if you let the house temp drop. But take them off during the day to prevent her hair from further rubbing off.

doberman tail and ears Is 4 months too old to get a dobermans ears done and tail clipped?

why not? I had a male fawn's tail redocked at the same time his ears were done. The vet agreed with me his tail was too long and since he was pit under anesthesia it worked out fine. He lived to be 13 1/2 and was as beautiful as could be, an obedience champ.

This reply post is over a year past the original question but the information is still useful. The cartilage in ears has already set up by the time the puppy has reached 4 months. A crop at this age will do nothing but cause a pup unnecessary discomfort and he will just have floppy cropped ears. The tail can be docked at 4 months but it should have been done within a fews days of birth. Ask for some pain management medication to help during the healing process of docking an older puppy.

This is false. It's just a silly rumor that was started much like a Pit Bull's jaws locking.

Bovine manure. The Doberman has been breed for over 100 years and usually done carefully. The breed is very trusted & highly intelligent.

More Doberman Pinschers will die from dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) than ALL other breeds combined. 40% will develop the disease. 50% of those dogs will have sudden death. The dogs can develop the disease at any age from 1 year to 11 years of age but it typically affects dogs about 5 to 6 years of age. I am on my fifth Doberman. I lost the first to Doberman hepatitis. All of the next three had DCM. One was euthanized just shy of her 10th birthday for other reasons. The other two had sudden death. Our black male, who was under treatment for the disease, died just shy of 6.5 yo. Our red female went undiagnosed and had sudden death just prior to her 8th birthday. We have our fingers crossed for our remaining 4 yo blue male. They are wonderful dogs but they do have some serious health risks.

My 1 old Doberman hates my husband and beginning to hate my other dog We rescued Rocky from a shelter when he was four months old. He had pneumonia and was very afraid of people. After a week or so he warmed up to myself and my children ages 12,10 and 5 but never really warmed up to my husband. It seems like it's getting worse now anytime my husband comes in the room He growls and barks.

Sorry I could not get the rest of my question on. Now Rocky is growling at my other dog only when she comes near me. He is a good dog and I love him so much but don't want him to be so protective of me with family. I want to nip this in the butt before he gets this way with my kids. Sorry this question is so long. Thank you for any and all advise.

He needs to be obedience trained and walked daily. Training goes on everyday you have your Dobie. Watch the "Dog Whisper" 95% of canine problems stem from lack of training and exercise. Through training your Dobie learns their place in the "pack" and you are the pack leader.
