If raised properly, a Doberman is the best dog you could have for a child and family. Dobermans are very forgiving with ear, leg pulling. They love for someone to just "love" on them. They love to sleep in the bed with you and get on couches.I have pictures of my son sleeping ON my Dobermans when he was a young child.
If raised with your child, the Doberman will watch and protect them. The females have more of a tendency to "mother" children. The only problem is the dog might not like you to discipline your child. They are a very playful breed. They love to run, play, fetch. They will accept other dogs and cats. I've had Dobes my whole life.
