Doberman Pinscher Dog Breeds
Another medium to large sized dog, the Doberman Pinscher is known for its distinctive black and tan coloring and the long muzzle. While they can also appear in other colors, this is their trademark. Doberman Pinschers are agile and fast dogs. Dobermans also commonly are part of the two most controversial dog breeding choices. Their tails are often docked and their ears are often cropped. These acts are legal in parts of the world and illegal in other parts of the world. These create a show dog that is lacking their tail and has tall pointed ears that are meant to hear better. While controversial, the original points of each of these jobs were to help a work dog with their duties.
The Doberman Pinscher sometimes gets a bad rap. A lot of people consider the Doberman Pinscher to be an aggressive and scary dog. However, that’s just not the truth. There have been studies that show how dogs channel any aggressiveness they might have. The Doberman shows that it has one of the very lowest levels of aggression when it is dealing with its master or family. It does have a higher than average level of aggression when dealing with unknown people. So the Doberman does make a good guard dog or family guard dog. It’s simply a case of providing your dog with some early training on how to meet and adapt to strangers.
Dobermans are not immediately obedient and responsive to human commands. This isn’t because they lack intelligence, but perhaps the opposite. They are very intelligent, but they require their owner to earn the dog’s respect. The owner needs to be the clear alpha in the relationship, as Dobermans need to know their place in the pecking order of things. Once you have established who is in charge, the Doberman is an affectionate and obedient breed that you can train to be a great family dog as well as a good worker.
Doberman Pinschers are a lot like other overly purebred dogs in that improper inbreeding has managed to give them a lot of potential health concerns. They are the foremost dog suffering from Dilated Cardiomyopathy. This is a disease that leads to their hearts enlarging until they are no longer functioning properly and doesn’t pump blood properly. Unsurprisingly the lack of blood means that the dog then suffers from other issues with their brain, lungs, etc… It’s a serious disease and over 40% of all cases in dogs end up in Doberman Pinschers.
