Engaging, attentive, focused, determined, alert and fearless. Loyal and obedient.

It’s a Doberman Pinscher. Over the last 100 years, breeders have created a strong, intelligent, and discerning dog capable in all aspects of life. The Doberman Pinscher today is the most prestigious of all canines.

Doberman Pinschers are perhaps best known for their guarding abilities. Through years of careful breeding, the Doberman Pinscher has become a fun-loving, exceptional competitor and a watchful and protective companion. Distinctive is the key word.

Doberman Pinschers are among the smartest dogs in the world. They are amazingly sensitive, perceptive and intuitive. If properly socialized and trained, your Doberman will not be able to place itself between you or a threat. Your Doberman, as owner after owner can attest to, will anticipate any threat to you or your child, sometimes in surprising ways.

Naturally, we’re biased. We believe the Doberman to be the number one breed in the world. However, the Doberman isn’t right for everyone. Dobermans will need a calm and stable leader. They need vigorous exercise and mental stimulation every day. These things will make them destructive of their home and themselves.

One final thing: Dobermans, also known as Velcro dogs, stick to their people. Dobermans are happy to hug you and give you a long head rub. This well-known guardian instinct can be balanced by a loving heart and a sense for humor that will keep it laughing all their lives.
