Is the Doberman the right dog breed for you?
The Doberman is not suitable for beginners, because due to his intelligence, alertness and courage in inconsistent, insecure education, he makes his own decisions, which can sometimes be dangerous. Especially since he can inflict serious injuries with his strength and body size, he should actually bury because he believes he has to defend his family. Ideally, you bring your Doberman puppy into the house as early as eight weeks, and you immediately begin education so he knows what he is allowed to do and what not.
