Dobermanns make a wonderful pal and protector for children, an obedient companion and loyal friend, and a loving member of the household. Unfortunately, not every person has the time or commitment necessary to properly teach the very intelligent Dobermann what is expected and required of him. There are many things to carefully consider before choosing a Dobermann as the breed for you.
Owning any dog requires a lengthy time commitment. A dog is for life, not just until it is inconvenient. Whether your Dobe is a puppy purchased from a breeder or a mature adult from a rescue, there will be many learning experiences and obstacles to go through in the course of ownership.
