Doberman Pinscher - Care and Grooming

Proud, noble, and alert, the Doberman Pinscher is a dog with plenty of devotion and love to give. These dutiful dogs tend to have an even, well balanced temperament, and are intelligent, creative, and quick to learn. The Doberman Pinscher excels in obedience training when it is positive and includes treats and lots of praise. They are one of the most intelligent and fastest learning of all breeds.

These dogs are best suited to those who can establish themselves as "boss" from day one, as this breed can be strong willed and stubborn. These dogs definitely do not take kindly to being teased or treated roughly. It is important to ensure that you provide the Doberman Pinscher with plenty of physical and mental stimulation, otherwise he can get bored and restless, which can result in behavioral issues.

The Doberman Pinscher tends to get on well with children when raised with them, although you should be mindful that his large size can result in problems when younger children such as toddlers are around. He also gets on okay with other pets, although he may be bossy and dominant with them, quickly establishing himself as the leader of the pack. He may chase smaller animals such as cats or rabbits due to his high prey drive, but this can be curbed by socializing him with your household pets early on. The Doberman Pinscher can be reserved with strangers so plenty of socialization from a young age is important. He is fearless, powerful and protective of his loved ones. He will fight if provoked, and he definitely wont back down (unless trained to), making him an effective guard dog.

The hard, sleek coat of the Doberman Pinscher can vary in color and the coloring of these dogs includes fawn, blue, brown, black, with rust colored markings on the head and legs. The height of the Doberman Pinscher is around 22-28 inches, and the weight 65-85 pounds.

Doberman Pinscher Grooming

The grooming requirements for the Doberman Pinscher are pretty low, and all that is required to keep the coat looking good is an occasional brushing. You can also use a damp cloth occasionally to keep the short coat looking glossy and conditioned. These dogs are medium shedders, and may shed more heavily on a seasonal basis, which means that you may need to step up the grooming during these times.

The life expectancy of the Doberman Pinscher is around 8-12 years, and there are a number of health problems and disorder linked to the breed.
