I used to own a Doberman a long time ago when I was much younger. They are great dogs and very intimidating, but that's just due to their size and natural features. They grow at a very fast rate and it is very time consuming to keep the area where they like to do their business, clean.
For the most part, these are independent dogs which require minimum attention (in fact the more attention they recieve the more annoyed they can become) and they require you to give them enough park-time so that they can release alot of stress they tend to build up by spending time inside interiors or closed areas for too long.
Overall, these are dogs that only ask for you to make sure you feed them and take them for a walk on a daily basis, or risk having their natural temper start taking over and begin reaffirming who's the leader of the pack in case you lack the dominance.
