Doberman Pinscher

Doberman Pinscher


Height: 24-28 inches

Weight: 66-88 lbs.

Life Span: 10-12 yrs.

Breed Group: Guardian Dogs

Overview
Dobermans are highly energetic, sensitive dogs that respond well to love and praise but not to heavy-handed discipline.

Well-socialized Dobermans get along with children and other animals if raised with them and if treated with respect, but they can be aggressive with other dogs.

Do not play aggressive games, such as tug-of-war, with Dobermans. While they are natural guard dogs, some Dobermans are so sweet and submissive they will let strangers take anything from their homes in exchange for petting and playtime.

Basic obedience training is mandatory to socialize young Dobermans and enhance bonding with their owners.

Appearance
The coat is smooth, short, hard, thick, and close-lying. Coat color is black, black and tan, red, blue, or fawn.

Sharply defined rust markings appear above each eye and on the muzzle, throat, forechest, all four legs and feet, and below the tail. There may be a gray undercoat on the neck.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
The Doberman sheds very little and needs only a quick brushing with a rubber brush once a week.

This highly energetic athlete needs a secure space to run off-leash in rapid bursts of speed. Walking or jogging is usually not enough.

Origins
The Doberman was originally bred in the late 19th century by Louis Dobermann of Apolda, Germany. Herr Dobermann was the town's dogcatcher and also a policeman at night. He wanted to develop a guard dog to accompany him on his nightly rounds and probably crossed German pinschers, rottweilers, black and tan terriers, and greyhounds to produce the elegant Doberman.

Special Alerts
It is especially important to obtain a Doberman pinscher from a reputable breeder, as poorly bred Dobermans may suffer from severe health or aggression problems. The Doberman is not suitable for inexperienced dog owners.

Breed-related health concerns: cardiomyopathy, cervical vertebral instability (malformation of the neck vertebrae resulting in a wobbling gait), hypothyroidism, von Willebrand's disease (a common disorder that causes excessive bleeding during or after surgery), osteosarcoma, parvovirus, acral lick dermatitis.
