From Wikipedia: The Doberman Pinscher (German pronunciation: [ˈdoːbɐman ˈpɪnʃɐ]), or Dobermann, or Doberman, is a medium-large breed of domestic dog originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.[2] The muzzle is long, and so affords the leverage for an extremely strong bite. The Doberman stands on its toes (not the pads) and is not usually heavy-footed. Ideally, they have an even and graceful gait. Traditionally, the ears are cropped and posted, and the tail is docked. However, in some countries it is illegal to do so. Dobermans have markings on the chest, paws/legs, muzzle, above the eyes, and underneath the tail.

Doberman Pinschers are well known as intelligent, alert, and tenaciously loyal companions and guard dogs. Personality varies a great deal between each individual, but if taken care of and trained properly they tend to be loving and devoted companions. The Doberman is driven, strong, and sometimes stubborn. Owning one requires commitment and care, but if trained well, they can be wonderful family dogs. Unlike some breeds (such as the German Shepherd), Dobermans are eager to please only after their place is established in their pack and that place is not as an alpha. With a consistent approach they can be easy to train and will learn very quickly. As with all dogs, if properly trained, they can be excellent with children. Dobermans adapt quickly, though they take their cue from their leader and value attention.

Doberman Pinschers were first bred in the town of Apolda, in the German state of Thuringia around 1890, following the Franco-Prussian War by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann. Dobermann served in the dangerous role of local tax collector and ran the Apolda dog pound. With access to dogs of many breeds, he aimed to create a breed that would be ideal for protecting him during his collections, which took him through many bandit-infested areas. He set out to breed a new type of dog that, in his opinion, would be the perfect combination of strength, speed, endurance, loyalty, intelligence, and ferocity. Later, Otto Goeller and Philip Greunig continued to develop the breed to become the dog that is seen today

    1. Topcat 129 Thank you very much 🙂 I’ll give your channel credit in the description. What’ time is your pooch at?

  1. no problem adopting a doberman as your first dog, as long as you put some effort into it 🙂 smart dog so learns very quick 🙂

    1. Ive owned 4 dobies my first dog no problems just exercise and love a velcro best friend and protector. Best breed ever!! 5th smartest breed too.

    2. My first dog is a doberman, he’s 9 months old now n 30kg. He’s been training since he was 5 months and is a lot of work but I expected that and researched before I bought him so i wasn’t going in blind. Anyway he’s doing great, he’s a handful for sure but we love him. Love the video 😁

  2. I don’t think Dobermans as a stubborn dog breed, I guess I was wrong, they can be stubborn. Honestly I thought Dobermans were the 5th smartest dog breed in the world.

    1. My fourth dobie is only stubborn when he wants attention. All 4 of mine were the same. Very intelligent 5th smartest breed, best friend and loyal protector.

  3. Had both a german and an american dobermans very loyal sweet protective intelligent dogs I loved them both my german dibie got in Geemany taught hand signals for her commands as well as english could give her a hand signal while talking and she would do it people were amazed. My amaican dobie knew I was pregant before I did and never would have hurt my son nor would she have allowed anyone else to either yes she let us disipline him as would she if he was headed for trouble lol

  4. Love my doberman they are sooo loyal and seem to live for your approval, he’ll if she sees me looking at her she locks eyes and wags her tail going crazy over any and all attention I give her lol. An added plus she stopped a robery at my house, before the guy event attempted to break in he saw her stand up growl and he took off faster than anyone I have ever seen lmao

  5. there is a lot I like about the dobie. I understand the training scheme of things. It almost appears I should work backwards. Start with vet who knows a good breeder and have him trained before I get ahold of him

  6. My lovely Dobi is the best dog I ever had and a wonderful children protector , awesome family dog that deserve to be known much more
