Dobermans make excellent watchdogs. They have amazing speed, powerful and muscular bodies, and a look that is so intimidating and menacing. I don’t know why Dobermans have such a bad reputation for being aggressive. As a Doberman owner, I know for a fact that the Doberman is one of the sweetest and most loving dog breeds.
The Doberman in the video below is lurking and slowly creeping towards the camera. His name is Ramsey. He can look scary because Ramsey’s face is very serious and it’s like he’s about to attack. He’s like hunting mode! But he waits to see what he does next! You will see the true nature of him!
Look into your eyes with your nose forward and ears back
Eye contact can be somewhat dominant in Dobermans, but more often if the ears are set back a bit and they extend their neck towards their nose towards you, it is a sign of love. Think of them trying to point their noses at you while making too awkward eye contact. The more awkward this gets, the more love there is.
If your Doberman uses you for a sense of security when something scary happens, then he definitely has a close bond with you. This happens with a Dobie more often when he is younger, as his naturally fearless nature tends to take over a bit when he is an adult.
Doberman Pinscher Health Problems
There are some hereditary health problems that Doberman Pinschers can be prone to, including: Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Von Willerbrand Disease, Hypothyroidism, Wobbler Syndrome , dilute color apolecia and dancing doberman syndrome. A dog affected by Dancing Doberman Syndrome appears to be shifting weight from one hind leg to the other, hence the name for this genetic disease. Although there is currently no cure for this disease, the condition is not painful or disabling. Get a puppy from a reputable breeder and have the puppy tested for genetic diseases.
Do not leave the dog outside for too long during the cold months. The Doberman’s short coat makes the breed vulnerable to cold weather.
