Overview
The German Pinscher said to be Germany's "Best Kept Secret". The German Pinscher can be an ideal companion dog. This rare breed has a sense of humor, is brave, not squeamish, sober, and have considerable stamina. It is lively but docile, quite versatile, and a vocal guard dog. It responds to obedience training. However, they can be bull headed and stubborn and need to know who is boss.
Character
German Pinschers are very loyal, alert, and playful. This breed does require proper socialization as a puppy; as they can be weary of strangers. They are energetic dogs and enjoy the company of their companions. This breed if properly socialized can do well around children and other pets.
Temperament
The German Pinscher can be an ideal companion dog. This rare breed has a sense of humor, is brave, not squeamish, sober, and have considerable stamina. It is lively but docile, quite versatile, and a vocal guard dog. It responds to obedience training. However, they can be bull headed and stubborn and need to know who is boss. This breed only barks when it feels it is necessary, which may be often. Visitors will be announced with loud barking but then things usually calm down quickly. This breed needs to know that when the family is gone, it owns everything and when the family is home it owns nothing.
Care
The strong, smooth, glossy coat requires little grooming. An occasional brushing to remove dead hair is all that is needed. This breed is an average shedder.
Coat
Short and dense, smooth, close, shiny, covering the body without any bald spots
Training
Consistency is the key to training a German Pinscher. This intelligent breed is very eager to learn and if given the proper training, will thrive.
Activity
The German Pinscher requires a lot of exercise. They will enjoy running alongside you when you bicycle, playing in the yard, or a walk around the block. Walks per day should also be sufficient. This eager little breed is sure to keep your on your toes.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of German 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.

Is it possible to train her even though she is no longer a puppy? We have been trying over the last year but nothing is working. Most of the time it seems like she wont listen, we would love to have her inside most nights with us, but when ever she comes inside she goes toilet everywhere. Please help

Dogs need a pack leader or he/she will become the boss. There are many guides and books on how to become a pack leader but it is best if your very new in understanding dog behavior that you speak to a professional.

I adopted my Pinscher at 3 . He had to learn to be crated, walk and run on a leash and simple commands. They learn very quickly. However, the times when I have moved or had significant changes in living conditions he did act out by going in the house. I am having a difficult time with my newly adopted terrier puppy so I understand your frustration. Be patient and be consistent.

They said it was a Min Pin but he was a bit bigger than Min Pin's I have seen. He has prominate markings that are very similar to the similar to the Black/Tan (reddish) Doberman. The vet even identified my dog as a Min Pin and told me it was overweight and blah blah blah. Then one day while cruising the internet I see a picture of a GERMAN PINSCHER and it looked exactly like my baby. I researched it and low and behold the characteristics are identical to my little boy. The weight of them was what my dog was at when the vet said he was overweight. Now that I have this info I need to educate my vet and get him back to his ideal weight. Anyone else have a prob where there dog was mis-identified? Any other German Pincher folks with stories?

Yes my german pincher...named Cecil is afraid of thunder and heads for under the bed every time it storms. He is also very aware when a storm is coming. I have seen him look his nose sniff the air and then he grabs his favorite chew toy and off he goes. Very playful and any form of tug he is up for..he was a very easy boy to train in all respects. Hope if you are considering getting a GP...you will... but they are high energy and I at 65 yrs old can keep up to him....kids will have agreat playmate as they love to play..are protective and faithful and great fun Mine is 3 years old and marvelous companion for me as a single senior..albeit not q large breed i have seen grown men get right off the side walk when they see me coming down the street and they have never even met him lol He is very protective and is wonderful with my grandchildren after i have taught him not to jump up to greet them and also to not be such a barker...they are yappy...but lets face it we love them

Their age can be determined by their teeth. German Pinscher's generally live about 12-14 years if well taken care of. As for food, it all depends on the individual. Every dog is different.

What food should be given for 4month old German Pinscher?

Any left overs really. Your German Pinscher should eat the same time you do. If you stop in burger king for example, buy him a Bouble whooper with cheese. No Mayonnaise please because he will.. well... just kidding. For food I believe they can eat any dry food.

Is a German Pinscher the same as a Doberman?

No, the German Pinscher and the Doberman are completely different breeds... no relationship whatsoever.... the pinsher came before the doberman so when people say miniature doberman correct them and tell them there is no such breed.. They are strictly a rat terrier breed and called Pinschers... where the name miniature pinscher came from.... :)
