Doberman Pinscher Review

We review the Doberman Pinscher a medium size dog. Compactly built, muscular and powerful, for great endurance and speed. Elegant in appearance, energetic, watchful, determined, alert, fearless, loyal and obedient.

The Doberman Pinscher Club of America was founded in 1921.
"Pinscher" means terrier
Doberman Pinschers were named after Louis Doberman, a tax collector
The first official records of the Doberman appear in the stud books of the Dobermannpinscher Verein stud book of 1890 in Germany.
The Dobermann is one of the few breeds that has been named after a person.

Lots of dogs have their own websites, here's another one

Dobermans were actually designed mathematically. Seriously. They are the
fastest dog when it comes to turning at a (basically) right angle. We know
what breeds that they were basically derived from. I have had 2 Dobes in my
life and I agree that the cropping and docking (ears and tails) are
essential for a great looking Dobe. You have a beautiful dog there,
congratulations. They are extremely smart and brave and loyal and if you
don't over socialize them they will retain their serious protectiveness.
The US breeders have taken some of the "fight" out of the breed, sometimes
to the point that they are actually cowardly. That is really a big fault in
this breed and those dogs shouldn't be bred. Dobe's are actually very
catlike in how they lounge and how they basically groom themselves. They
are stealthlike and have been known to let an intruder in to a space BUT
then not allow him out of that same space. I prefer that they just don't
let them in period. They are one of the best Schutzhund dogs in the world.
That is something I did with one of my girls and she excelled at it. Some
people have been breeding males up to 100 lbs. or so and that is not good.
Some people believe there is some Great Dane in them, maybe there is but
that is not the size they were originally designed to be. A truly "correct"
doberman is a marvel to witness. They are fast, strong, fearless, beautiful
and extremely agile. They are great family dogs and excellent with children
when raised with them (just like most dogs). Good breeding matters a great
deal in this breed. I think more so with dobes if you really want them to
be what they were originally designed to be. There are not many breeds that
can compete with a true example of the breed and I am not talking strictly
about protection type of ability. I mean brains, braun, natural instinct,
loyalty, agility and fierceness with fairness. Of course GSD's are in this
same category but the shedding is just too much for me. The Malinois is up
there also but they are a bit hyper for me at my age, lol. Truth is there
aren't many dog breeds that can give you what a well bred donb can. Great
video and thanks for posting, God bless.

This dog is super-duper smart, and I actually love this breed the best! My
female used to sit next to me and make a
wasn't giving her the affection and attention she thought she always
deserved! Anyway, she was never aggressive but felt she was in charge of
everything! I've never known an aggressive Doberman - friendly and
sociable to welcomed guests, but I know how protective they are! I had two
Dobermans who loved being outside, while tracking down and plotting
strategic attacks to any other animals who entered their yard!

Cropping the ears does have NON-COSMETIC benefits.
I have two dobermans, one male with cropped ears and one female with
natural ears. While I've had no trouble with the cropped ears, my female
has had lots of issues. Tiny scratches on her ears bleed like crazy, they
need to be cleaned a lot more and they also seem to attract more ticks. I
still find specks of blood on my walls occasionally from when my female has
had an ear bleed and shaken her head.
If I had it to do over again, I would have cropped them both and highly
recommend ear cropping to any doberman owners.

My father had a doberman as a kid but had to give him away when he moved 30
minutes away and one day he was playing outside he said and his dog found
where he lived lol his mother didn't believe him. I guess my dads doberman
was bats hit crazy though, everyone says he would chase cars at the tires
and bark as people drove.

you never have to trim them? you do actually, had dobermans all my life and
unless you constantly walk them on concrete, then you do have to trim them

Author Shamrock Rancher ( ago)
I am surprised you didn't mention a couple of significant Dobe factors
(IMHO). The 'Velcro' factor. My dog follows me everywhere in the house and
will position himself to keep an eye on me. I mention it because a lady
asked me how to get the dog (hers) to stop doing that... it was freaking
her out that he was always watching her. It's part of the breeding, I've
been told.

The other thing that was a total surprise to me (I've always had Golden's)
is how affectionate he is. I was very surprised by this. He loves attention
and will come by for a petting pretty regularly. If I'm busy on the PC
he'll flip my hand off the keyboard with his nose to let me know he needs
some love'n.

He's a rescue. He had some serious mental issues when I first got him. I'm
pretty sure he was just left in an outdoor kennel (he hates rain and snow)
and he was probably beaten since every time I picked up my back scratcher,
fly swatter, etc. he'd change zip codes. It took about two years to settle
him down but he's relaxed now and I much prefer him over the Golden's. I
just wish I would have had him from when he was a pup. He had a lot of
anxiety and he ate a few shoes, t shirts and ruined a collector hockey
jersey. He tried to convince me that he was actually a fashion designer and
he was giving my clothes 'an edgy street look'. No problems with that now.

The docking of the tail is done at three days old. So that way the dog does
not remember it. Yes it still hurts them but it is better if the tail is
docked because of the way their tails are which is long and boney. If the
tail hits cages or walls when being wagged it cuts open their tail. It
happened to my Great Dane and its a lot mor painful then. My two that I
have now have their tails docked. And the ears are usually done at 6
months. Mainly for looks. Yes, it hurts but their asleep during the
procedure. And it only hurts afterwards if they hit their ears or if you
touch them. So don't get pissed off because of someone's preference!!

Holy shit😂 K People pierce their kids ears when they're unable to consent,
their kid is too young to say anything about it. People trim their child's
foreskin without consent. I don't see any of you guys shitting bricks about
that. Their dog, their business.

Great looking dog, great crop too. Having a Pedigree doesn't mean a dog is
breeding quality. Remember all those ugly toothless dogs in puppymills have
full AKC reg as well. Euro dogs don't do well in shows here, so you don't
really have a way of proving him. Breeding him to an American dobe would be
a mistake as well.

Author endocry ( ago)
I'm really surprised how many bleeding heart ignorant people are making
comments. Cropping the ears and docking the tail don't hurt the dog at
all. If you don't want to do it to yours, that's great. However, since it
does not hurt the dog at all, physically or emotionally, you should really
get off your high horses and shut up about someone who does want to do it.
I'm not emotionally scarred from being circumsized, it's the same shit.

OMG was this person who owned the stud from the u.k!? If so then yours and
mine are brothers! He had a stud dog that was u.k and European champion
that went on a u. s tour too and the pups were born in Bulgaria or
somewhere alike! I know it would be weird and unlikely but that would be
great for jax to have an American brother. It's the uk that doesn't allow
cropping and docking, that's why I went to mike who sends his dog over to
Bulgaria where it is legal and then brought him back to England :)

i understand that in the USA ear cutting and tail docking are still legal
and considered normal but as a Doberman lover in the UK i'am thankful that
this barbaric treatment is now illegal here . It does nothing to improve
the animal in either looks or ability and is purely done for so called
'looks' . i grow up in a Doberman household , i've shown them at
championship level and i love the breed . Please help stop this outdated
practice in America

they are much much more susceptible to ear infections if their ears are not
cropped, and they often will break their tails if they are not docked. both
are standard procedures that does not harm the dog at all.

Author aalmon ( ago)
Really? You don't concur with a safe medical procedure performed by a
medical professional who is also a licensed Doctor who attended a
University for a minimum of 7 years, while you pet is being daunted on with
the care of the quality of *North American Hospitals* and you know this
because of the expense the procedure costs and the laser technology
involved. Really? Yeah, I don't believe those lies either. I KNOW those
corner shop bastards only use laughing gas and rusty tools!

Author sirscrotum ( ago)
Make sure you don't comment on the situation where you know nothing about
how it happened. The dog has bitten 5 people already, I was the most
seriously bitten. None of them provoked the dog or were intruding for that
matter. It is the type of dog that is an ideal candidate for being put
down. I could have asked animal control to put the dog down, but I chose to
let someone else do it. The dog has bitten 5 people and it was only 2 years
old. Just a matter of time before it maims some1 else.

DCM , its a heart disease that can happen to any doberman at any age (if
you dont go to a reputbae breeder it will happen earlier) and it s when the
dog can just drop dead all of a sudden. usually the first symptom to dcm is
death. if you have regular (holter) check ups (every year or 2) than you
may be able to catch it early and your dog can go on medicine

Author xxNeverGiveUpOnItxx ( ago)
there is a forum called dobermantalk, i suggest you join it

Author xxNeverGiveUpOnItxx ( ago)
no , theyre not a "violent breed" all animals are violent. theyre not
weapons, theyre loving companions that will protect their owners with their
lives. not a weapon, theres a difference. and obviously a lot of americans
also think youre wrong as all of the comments directed back are you are
telling you that you are WRONG. and no, i didnt have to go to a plastic
surgeon because i got bit by some stupid yokie because yorkies cant cause
as much DAMAGE as a doberman. youre an idiot..

Author xxNeverGiveUpOnItxx ( ago)
of course we would, these are our babies. obviously, a dog who attacks
unprovoked should be put down, NO MATTER THE BREED. you just walked into
the house, no one opened the door for you. id say your lucky the dog didnt
attack you then. we will defend this breed with everything we have because
of the misleading reputation they already have, we will do everything to
prove them wrong. and if the dog murdered a jogger for no reason, the dog
would be put down, not the whole BREED

Author xxNeverGiveUpOnItxx ( ago)
no , there are many benefits to both. floppy ears on dogs are far from
natural. Humans made them that way, havent you noticed that all wild dogs
have upright ears? they can hear better, infection is less likely and can
be caught earlier and toddlers can not pull on the ears (or tail) for the
tail, because the dobermans natural tail is held high and is very thin, so
the likeliness of a doberman breaking their tail (which is horrible) is
very high. if it was cruel, it wouldnt be done

Author C Fong ( ago)
It's cruel i know but i think some dogs do benefit from having their tails
docked but the ear thing wrong.

Author sirscrotum ( ago)
Also I find the Doberman Pinscher community to be some of the most hateful,
violent and sadistic human beings I have ever met on the internet, or for
that matter, the planet. For talking about being the victim of a violent
attack by a Doberman, I have had people say they wish I was killed by your
breed of animal instead of having my face mutilated. So apparently the dog
could murder a jogger, and the Doberman Pinscher community would STILL come
to the defense of the violent animal.

Author sirscrotum ( ago)
They're a violent breed of animal. They're not really pets. They're
weapons. And unlike a gun, they can go off all by themselves. Outside of
the community of people who like dangerous dogs like Doberman's, a lot of
Americans think your dogs are way too violent which is why we pass laws
targeting specific breeds. Im willing to bet you didn't have to go see a
plastic surgeon because you got bit by a Yorkshire Terrier. I did because I
got bit by a Doberman.

Author Karla B. ( ago)
To @sirscrotum, well your screen name is on point. I've owned Dobe's all my
life and have owned more than two at a time. They've never bit me or anyone
that has stepped foot in my house. If someone ever posed a threat to me my
babies did take issue and I took heed to their warning signals. It is my
responsibility to be the safe guard between my babies and my guest, but the
guest will NOT be returning. My mother's 5 pound Yorkshire Terrier bit me
because I was playing with the poodle and not her.

Author Jade Murillo ( ago)
I agree. My Dobermann chased down a known delinquent (about 16 or 17 yrs
old) and just held him in a corner without laying a paw (or tooth) on the
kid until I got there and told her to relax and heel. Which, by the way,
she was trained for. Correctly, I might add. Dogs who are trained for
protection don't "attack," not even naturally. So yeah, it comes down to
the owner and trainer.

My family had a Doberman when I was born and that dog was the sweetest dog
I've ever known. It died when I was 7 or 8, but she would never leave my
family's side and I don't think I ever heard her bark or growl, or even
open her mouth except to eat or pant. Dobermans, and all dogs for that
matter, are products of how they were raised. Pitbulls are also incredibly
loving and caring, by the way.
