In this article we will introduce you to the dogs of the Dobermann breed. Characteristic of the breed will help identify all the advantages and disadvantages of these animals.
The history of the breed
Doberman, which reviews different (we'll discuss this later) is a popular German breed. Its name it received in honor of the first breeder – Carlos Dobermann. He was a tax collector, but also had the knacker's yard, and therefore had the right to catch stray animals. From them he selected "butchers dogs" (in Germany sometimes called Rottweilers), which at that time was considered to be already fully Mature breed. So these dogs played an important role in creating the Doberman. Carlos Luis created the breed, knowing exactly what he wants to achieve as a result of breeding work. First and foremost, it was important for him that the dog was a good defender. Unfortunately, the Dobermann have left records of their work. It is known that on one of the shows he bought two puppies, which subsequently came to light a black and red female. Then it was crossbred with some species, including "butcher's dog".
In addition, the selection used in herding dog, the Thuringian shepherd dog (now extinct) and Omarska hunting dog. Latest added of breed Doberman a bluish tinge to the base color.
The resulting breeding Doberman, characteristic of the breed which meets the requirements of the breeder, the official recognition in 1898, after the death of its Creator. Changed the official name of the breed. If earlier these dogs were called Thuringia Pinschers, after recognition they are called "Doberman Pinscher". Quality Dobermans appreciated in the army and the police. Animals received another unofficial name – the gendarme dog.
These animals have long been recognized as one of the most beautiful in the canine world. Slender, muscular, long-legged and lean – Dobermans look like real athletes. Their beautiful face is slightly elongated and graceful. Posture proud, addition elegant, with a slightly protruding withers, wide and deep chest and sloping croup. The weight of a Doberman (dog) from 40 to 45 kg with an increase from 68 to 72 cm Females are slightly smaller.
The Doberman Pinscher: ears
Most often we see these beauties without a tail and with a triangular, high set pointed ears. Their form was changed several times. At first it was small triangles, and more recently in Vogue is very high lugs. This figure is a credit to the owner, because the right ear is a rather complex and laborious work. To do this, use various devices, including the crown, which give them the correct form.
However, in many countries, including in Germany, the deformation of the ears and docking of tails are not recommended. If you dream that your pet became a participant of international exhibitions, then you need to buy a lop-eared puppy with a tail.
The coat of these animals is very pleasant to the touch. Smooth and elastic hairs close to the skin. Undercoat does not have a Doberman. Characteristic of the breed indicates the presence of only two colors – dark brown and black with clear bright reddish-tan color.
Maintenance and care
It features the coat absolutely forbid keeping dogs in a kennel or cage. Doberman, characteristic of the breed which suggests that this animal cannot be considered as a "diva" pet active and athletic dog. She needs long walks and high physical exertion. It should be remembered that letting go of a Doberman to run around without a leash should be in a sparsely populated place.
These dogs can easily tolerate heat and vagaries of the off-season, but winter in severe cold, the duration of the walk is better to reduce. You can use warm overalls so that your energetic pet can enjoy a long winter walk. Caring for these dogs is minimal: they practically do not fade, absolutely not afraid of water, have no unpleasant smell.

This smart amazing dog feels the mood of his master and behaves accordingly. The Doberman Pinscher – a great friend, but he becomes so only for good and smart person.
Future owners should know that the Doberman gets a little nervous, especially with the sharp change of scenery. If you have an aggressive cat or other animal, their introduction should be gradual.
I should say about the special, emphasized respect for the children. As soon as the child begins to walk alone, he immediately comes under the tutelage of four-legged friend. Interesting to see how this big and strong dog gently and carefully playing with the kids. Many trainers believe that if the right dog for your child, then you should buy a puppy from North America. There are breeders achieved amazing results in the fight against the aggression of these animals, completely eliminating the possibility of a dog attack on a person. As for the attitude towards strangers, we can say that all Dobermans it is equally cautiously-aggressive.
The owners of these dogs should know that the pet can easily provoke the attack unfamiliar dogs and people. Given the size of the animal and its strength, you should always walk your pet on a sturdy leash with wrist loop and muzzled. Here I would like to note that timely and properly conducted adaptation and puppy training can significantly reduce the risk of such reactions.
Dobermans are dogs that are always alert about the attack uterine low growl. Usually this is enough to rival retreated.
This dog barks very rarely. In the room the sound is like a bomb – all the living in this case will be stunned, except for the Doberman.

From an early age, smart kid easily and happily learns new lessons. I must say that working and studying are the most favorite activities of a Doberman. The puppy have to be monitored very carefully. If he lost interest or tired, it is better training to finish. Of course, you can get the dog to accomplish anything, but we can assure you that in the next lesson, it will find a thousand ways to unpleasant him the command not to perform. But with the stubbornness of a Doberman can cope not all.
It should be remembered that by nature the Doberman breed is quite aggressive. Do not experiment, do not provoke the dog, do not drive it in anger. This is especially true of puppies or adolescents. His innate malice and distrust you more than enough in order to with proper training at the proper age he makes a great guard.
The cost of a puppy
I'm sure many dog lovers want a pet, breed Doberman. The price of a puppy is made up of several factors. A dog breed cannot be purchased from the owner or the pet market, despite very attractive prices. Because usually they sell animals without papers. In addition, the buyer is deprived of the opportunity to see the parents of the baby.
Unscrupulous sellers are using the gullibility of prospective owners and sell puppies over 4-6 thousand rubles, "forgetting" to mention that in front of you is not a Doberman and Metis, with someone unknown crossed.
It should be noted that the substitution in the pedigree dogs of this breed are rather difficult to notice. And how to behave in a "hybrid" of a Doberman, it is hard to imagine. Therefore, be careful to approach the dog breed Doberman. The price of the puppy (average) to date is from 18 to 25 thousand rubles.
Checked known kennels that we recommend that you buy a puppy, offer the following prices:
- Pets (dog with small deviations from the standard, is ideally suited as a family pet) 8-20 thousand rubles
- breed-class (for animal breeding) — 20-30 thousand rubles.
- show class (dog with excellent pedigree) — from 30 thousand rubles.
