Red Rose and DobermannThe Doberman Pinscher is a beautiful and unique dog. It’s known for it’s athletic body and it’s intelligent mind. Doberman’s are not for everyone, some have said that the Doberman can be vicious and stubborn.  Any dog not cared for properly can become dangerous. All dogs need to be respected. As far as his viciousness is concerned, this is a behavior and is a result of conditioning and training.  A dog can become vicious when it perceives a situations as dangerous or threatening.  Dobermans are bred to have confident temperaments, so they do not often feel a threat unwarranted, and are in fact less likely to over react with viciousness or biting.

Dobermans are bred to assist man in some of the most dangerous jobs so the Doberman must be strong in all areas.

The American Kennel Club’s book The Complete Dog Book describes the Doberman temperament as this: “Among the endearing qualities of the Doberman has come to be its devotion to hearth and home, and its discriminating service as friend and guardian of the whole family. The proper bred and trained specimen has a sane mind and a sound body; the heart and spirit of a gentleman.”

Training and upbringing always dictate how a dog’s temperament will turn out. Keep this in mind.
