Doberman character characteristics
The first impression of the size and appearance of the Doberman is that it is very rigorous and afraid to approach it. In the early days, a large number of Dobermans were trained as army and police dogs to defend the motherland. He is very serious and decisive.
This dog is a strong and powerful dog, mainly responsible for guard work. After training, it can become a search dog, hunting dog and shepherd dog. The character is bold, sensitive, determined and decisive, and easy to bite. The Doberman is a natural guard dog, smart, strong, and capable of attacking. Strictly managed by breeders, they can become loyal and affectionate companions.
When it comes to the Doberman Pinscher, whether it is in the fight against criminals as a police dog, or to protect the owner’s home, it enjoys high praise. And it has a very high IQ and obeys its master. If you raise a Doberman, then you should also learn about its character from many aspects in order to better take care of it. Below, I will share with you the common characteristics of Doberman.
One, fierce nature
In fact, when many owners choose a Doberman Pinscher, they will have such a psychological expectation that they will be able to develop it into an obedient guard dog in the future. This is precisely the characteristic of Dubin. But this is not absolute, the specific character of the Doberman Pinscher will still change with the change of the environment. So many owners don’t dare to keep it as a pet dog if they don’t see this. In fact, it is also a good family companion dog.
Two, brave and alert
Doberman Pinscher gives people the feeling of being strong and powerful, and after training, it can be used as a good guard dog to help police officers perform a series of complex security tasks. This is not something that any dog breed can do. Therefore, if you have a Doberman, the sense of security will always be with you, ha ha.
Three, faithful and active
Loyalty Needless to say, the obedience of the Doberman Pinscher is very high, otherwise they would not be able to take on so many guarding tasks. Therefore, as long as you usually pay attention to training and tuning, then it will definitely treat you as the only master. If you are too abusive to him, he will also have an opinion on you. Dobermans are naturally active and have a greater demand for exercise in order to make their muscles plump and well developed. It is very necessary to take the dog out to exercise every day.
Doberman dog care knowledge
As a family member, Doberman Pinscher training needs to be strictly implemented since childhood. After all, it is a strong dog, and the personality of the Doberman Pinscher will change with age. Therefore, the process of training in the middle of breeding must not be discarded.
Doberman is not suitable for outdoor living, it is a member and protector of a family, suitable for living in the room.
It needs a warm, safe, dry and comfortable environment, and it needs a particularly large space. It needs soft materials to protect its joints.
Doberman Pinscher is suitable for high-quality dog food that contains a lot of good meat (not offal, etc.). This kind of food is usually not available in general grocery stores. If you can’t find it, Purina, Iams, and Royal are also available. Water is kept available at all times.
Training and obedience are what a wonderful, happy dog needs. Doberman pins need to be trained to know what to do and what not to do at home, in the crowd, and outdoors. They are smart, easy to be trained, and the proper training method is a joy. However, without management and training, they may show excess energy, a zeal for destruction, and disobedience. They are too childlike, and the owner needs to pay attention: they cannot be allowed to be lawless. Like any guard dog breed, without training, they can become a big problem!
They need care to keep clean and healthy. The teeth need to be checked and cleaned when needed. Nails should be sanded or trimmed when needed-usually once or twice a month.
How to polish your dog’s nails. Check the hair (I understand that you need to clean the bottom of your feet before sanding to avoid getting caught in the nail polisher during sanding), and bathe the dog if needed.
They need exercise to protect their health and release inhibited energy. Exercise can make them a healthy, well-developed Doberman. They are energetic dog breeds, and they need to be active, exercise and play. A large and closed venue is very conducive to keeping your doberman in good condition. No matter how you train your Doberman, they are still “dogs” with the instinct to often deviate. When they see a “rabbit” or something that attracts their attention, they will rush over regardless of danger, such as a car. Don’t raise a Doberman without a big yard! Most reputable breeders will not sell puppies to someone who does not have a large yard.
Doberman Pinscher needs care, attention and communication, and being with the family in which it lives, it embodies true happiness. This is a “man-made” dog breed that special needs to live together-family life. It is the protector of the family, and living with its family makes it more loyal and protective, ready to rescue the family at any time. It cannot live in basements, cars, courtyards, or any other place away from its family. Doberman needs care, put your hands on its head and touch on your body. Unless you live with him and make him fall in love with you, he will not be what you want. Love it, take care of it, train it and let it know what you want it to do-it will spend a lifetime with you-only Dubin is like that.
It is absolutely necessary to sterilize the Doberman! It not only prevents the dog from getting lost during the menstrual period, but also helps the dog’s temperament to improve and become docile.

The criteria for choosing dog food is appropriate and healthy, which has nothing to do with the value of dog food.

Guaranteed dog food.
Of course, when choosing dog food for a Doberman, parents should also decide based on the actual physical condition of the dog. If the Doberman is obese and has thick fat, you can choose a professional diet food; when the Doberman’s fur is rough, parents can choose a beautiful hair food with relatively rich protein and vitamin content. This more targeted method of selecting dog food can meet the more practical needs of the Doberman Pinscher, which is very healthy for its growth.
Doberman Pinscher is a typical carnivorous animal from the perspective of its digestive characteristics. The Doberman’s diet requires a higher content of protein and lower crude fiber. It mainly consists of meat, bones and internal organs of various animals, and tends to be carnivorous or animal-eating. Now the dog food for dog breeds is better than the dog food that I mix and prepare in the kitchen.
Doberman adult dogs are close to sexual maturity. Not only do the male and female dogs have a big difference in body shape and appearance, but the male and female dogs also have certain performances. They can be fed according to the dietary standards of adult dogs. The food for feeding Doberman bred dogs should be finished within 5 to 10 minutes, and there should be no leftovers. Food bowls that have not been eaten clean after 10 minutes of feeding should be removed in time and not left for too long to avoid contamination and deterioration. It is also conducive to the dog’s good habit of eating on time, maintaining normal digestion and healthy digestive tract. The daily water supply should not be interrupted, so that the dog can drink water when he is thirsty.
