Doberman Pinscher Dogs

Doberman Pinscher dogs are not for the novice dog owner and many experts recommend having a bit of experience before bringing one of these dogs in to your home.

These dogs are very protective over their owners and have been known to attack or bite strangers and other unfamiliar people who walk into the house. For the very social and active person who has new friends over every weekend, then it is recommended to look for a more friendlier dog breed.

Doberman Pinscher dogs require a lot of attention and exercise. It is important for owners to be able to spend at least 4 hours with their dog everyday, especially if they live outside. If they live inside the house then it is a requirement to take them out for walks once or twice a day for about one or two hours total. Dogs that get Regular Exercise live longer and are capable of overcoming hard hitting diseases and flu.

When owners are considering bringing a Doberman Pinscher into the house, they are often worried about how they'd react to smaller children or to other members of the family. Many studies have shown that aggression towards the owners and family members are very limited.

In the unlikely case the dog acts out towards the owner, it was mostly due to the owner provoking the dog in a very aggressive manner or touching his food while he eats. Attacks where the owner had to be put into the hospital are extremely rare when owning Doberman Pinschers.

The subject of whether these dogs are safe around children has always been a highly touched subject. Doberman Pinscher dogs are perfect with older and reserved children. Children that will not go up to the dog and tug on its ear, pull his leg, or in general do not harass or irritate the dog in anyway are suitable.

Younger children or children that are smaller than the dog should be watched. Generally it is not recommended that the Doberman Pinscher be around children that are smaller than him, but this rule can vary based on the Doberman Pinscher Temperament.

There are some very calm and passive Doberman pinscher dogs that have been known to work wonderfully with smaller children. Aside from this exception, owners who are expecting children or already have young children in the house should look for a more passive dog breed.

Doberman Pinscher Health Problems has always been a concern with these dogs, so it is important that owners get all the necessary check-ups and shots from the veterinarian the moment they own the dog. Many owners prepare a Dog First Aid Kit to help with any unexpected emergencies.

When owning a dog, owners should always have a 24 hour emergency veterinarian’s number on the fridge or in the first aid kit. The Doberman Pinscher Dog Breed have been known to get a disease called dilated cardiomyopathy that has been known to kill these dogs in less than 2 months.

It is almost impossible to prevent as many experts suspect that it is genetically passed on to other Dobermans.
