Doberdane History

The Dobermann is a German breed of medium-sized working dog. The Dobermann is one of two varieties of the same general type, the other variety being the Dobermann Pinscher. The Dobe is considered one of the oldest of the herding and guard dogs and has been referred to as “the noble shepherd of the German people”. The Dobe is one of the four types of the German shepherd, along with the Dutch (Deutsch), the Belgian (Belgisch), and the Austrian (Osterreichisch).

Doberdane Physical Characteristics

The Doberman Pinscher is a medium-large breed of domestic dog of the spitz type, known for its large size, erect ears, and muscular structure. It is also known as the Doberman. Similar in appearance to the Rottweiler, the Doberman is slightly longer-bodied, with shorter legs and a thicker neck. The head is large, with a triangular-shaped skull, a pointed nose, dark, almond-shaped eyes, and a black nose. The tail is carried high. The breed is confident, alert, and courageous with a keen sense of smell. The temperament of the Doberman is highly prized by the breed fancier, but less so by the general public.

Doberdane Temperament and Behaviour

The Doberdane is a brave and resilient working breed, but they are also friendly and gentle toward their families. They are protective and territorial, and they are known to defend their homes and farms from intruders. They are loyal and devoted, and are also very intelligent and eager to learn.

Doberdane Activity Requirements

Like several other large hunting and working breeds, the Doberman Pinscher is an energetic dog that requires several hours of exercise and mental stimulation every day. Dobermans are not well-suited for apartment living. They are too large and active to remain in a confined space for long periods and they need room to run. The ideal home for a Doberman is in a rural environment with a large yard where they can play and run. An ideal day for a Doberman includes a long walk or jog in the morning, followed by some roughhousing or trick training. Most Dobermans will also enjoy a game of fetch or tug-o-war, and they enjoy learning new tricks.
