All About Doberman Dogs

By: Toby Carberton

The Doberman Pinscher breed started in early 1890 in Germany and was made from several unique breeds. The breed was refined over time to have the physical and personality traits that it is known for today. They are a dog breed that requires and enjoys daily activity especially outside. Physically they are strong and athletic and like doing activities that require activity of any level.

Dobermans usually live to be 10-15 years old and normally have fine health records when correctly taken care of. Common health problems include dilated cardiomyopathy, cervical vertebral instability, and von Willebrand's disease.

Dobermans come in four different colors but the most common is black and tan. They can grow to be as big as 100 pounds as adult males and are of medium size compared to other canine breeds. Muscular and strong are two terms that come to mind when viewing the physical attributes of the Doberman, and they carry stylish lines with a properly balanced body.

Doberman Pinschers usually have serene personalities but can be full of determination! This dog breed is best recognized for being obedient and faithful. Doberman Pinschers will protect their owners especially if they are placed in a dangerous situation. Dobermans generally have the reputation as intense guard or police dogs and this is true. However over time people have realized that the breed is much more than that. They also make exceptional family pets and do very well with children when socialized at an early age.

The greatest place to purchase this sort of dog is from a highly regarded doberman breeder. You will need to meet with the breeder and make sure you are comfortable with them and can see the quality of the puppies and that they are in fine health with the appropriate registration papers.

Caring for a Doberman Pinscher is not really hard but it does call for regular feeding, water, and trips to the veterinarian as a bare minimum.
