The Doberman is a joy to own.
Exceptionally smart, loyal and intuitive, they are so easy to train if you have the skill. If not, it is essential that you get professional help to do it right. When properly trained and socialized, the Dobe has no equal.
Given all that, this is no breed for idiots!
Much like the Pit Bull, irresponsible owners have contributed to giving the Doberman an edgy reputation. Also, this highly intelligent dog needs daily attention, exercise and companionship. Integrate your Dobe into your daily family routine. Show him off and prove to the rest of the world what a wonderful breed they can be.
