Do You Want a DOBERMAN? Check This!!

So you’re thinking about getting a Doberman. Congratulations for that! But before taking that step you need to
know when the Doberman is NOT for you! But before we go… if you want to help a
non profit organization: Uou can get the Pink K9 Duke Patch! All the money raised will go directly to Unravel
Pediatric Cancer A nonprofit organization working to spread knowledge about the grim realities of pediatric cancer and the devastating impact from the lack of funding. Duke is a Doberman working with the Menlo Park
Police Department, in California, USA. More information in this video description. Dobermans are energetic dogs and they love
to run. This is one of the reasons that they make
excellent wilderness search dogs that need to cover a lot of ground. You don’t need a huge propriety to make
a good Doberman owner, but you will need to spend some active time each day with your
dog. Without this, Dobermans tend to become bored
and possibly destructive. If you are the kind of person that don’t
go out, don’t do exercise, don’t do walks, the Doberman is not the dog for you! Dobermans are watchful dogs and as a Doberman
owner, you must be aware of the Doberman’s abilities to guard and understand the responsibility
that comes with it. You cannot assume that just because your Doberman
has never guarded before, that it will not guard when challenged, so you cannot leave
your Doberman unattended or out of your sight in a public area, such as a terrain or a dog
park. It is important that you begin
obedience training with your Doberman at a young age and establish appropriate
behaviours for greeting visitors to your home or for meeting other dogs on walks. When training begins at a young age, you can
use gentle and positive methods to encourage the behaviour that you want from your dog. If you don’t have time to teach your Doberman,
then a Doberman is not the dog for you! Dobermans are determined dogs by nature! It takes only a few moments for a Doberman
to scratch or bite your furniture or belongings, while on it’s quest to obtain a favorite toy. So, if you love your furniture more than your
dog, the Doberman is not the dog for you! Dobermans are always alert! If you live in a busy area, your Doberman
will not likely bark or otherwise alert you, unless something out of the ordinary is happening. But when it does, you must expect your dog
to let you know quite firmly, and loudly, that something is not right. If you are not prepared to have a dog that
barks loudly when something out of the normal is happening, the Doberman is not the dog
for you! Your Doberman is going to be very loyal and
would rather be with you than anywhere or anyone else. If your dog is getting plenty of exercise
and has some basic obedience training, he or she will generally choose to stay by your
side, and will follow you from room to room in your home. Dobermans are terrible kennel dogs and will
often develop obsessive behaviours if they are kept away from you or your family, so
you need to plan to have your dog in your house. If having a 60 to 100 pound dog in the house
bothers you Then the Doberman is not the dog for you! I hope this helps you to make the final decision
if the Doberman is the right dog you, of if you are the right person to have a Doberman! Write in the comments if you still want to
live with a Doberman! Thanks for watching!

  13. Kelly Krueger says:

    Doberman's are a wonderful breed. Please consider adoption/rescue before buying. There are plenty of beautiful doberman's that are sweet, gentle and with a big heart just waiting to be a part of a family in their forever home. And they are just as special and loving that maybe haven't had the best of starts to life as a new puppy will have. Doesn't mean that there is anything wrong with them, just their previous owners had let them down. About 6 years ago we adopted 2 dobermans (male and female adopted at different times) that want to always be with you and have so much love to give. Please look into Illinois Doberman Rescue Plus at I am not affiliated with them. That is just where we adopted ours from because we were wanting a doberman but were deciding if we wanted to get a puppy or adopt a less fortunate but still deserving dog. We are glad we made the choice to adopt.

  17. Shamino Ranger says:

    The best trained dog I ever met was a Dobe named Uzi. Her "dad" was ex British SAS and her "mum" was a professional dog trainer. Uzi was an active participant during dog training sessions and she had an astonishing influence on the other dogs. It was as if a war-hardened Field Marshal just walked in on a bunch of Privates horsing around. There was no questioning the hierarchy. I got to know her in the home too and she had manners that would put the Queen to shame. I never met a dog that was so professional and serious on the one hand, while being such a softie on the other, (once I passed her standard of approval ). If one has the training skills, this breed responds extremely well.

  24. Ioane Kirarahu says:

    Yes, this all true. Our Doberman passed away two years ago, from eating things that harmed him. But he was very, very bonded and very, very loyal to me–not quite as much to the other family members. By way of contrast, our German Shepherd was much more protective of all our family members. The Doberman's energy level was off the chart. He was not dangerous, however a couple of times he would snap at family members if he felt they were moving in on his claim to me. He loved going on walks, and it was a good way for me to keep my walking exercise up. He also loved to play "fetch" with balls, and of course eat eat eat. He ate more than all the other pets combined. I'm not sure, however, what he would do to an intruder at night, as whenever somebody would come to the door, he would always go up to them for loves and pets. I miss him a lot, and I'd like to get another Doberman, but he was such a high energy dog, that I'm not sure if we want again the high investment in energy and time. But there is nothing like the bonding and loyalty of a Doberman.

  28. LagiNaLangAko23 says:

    I lived in my mom's employers house. They had a purple doberman. Was a really sweet girl. It was not an active household, just me, mom and elderly couple a young woman. I spent most of my time just running in the yard with pupper. We put her in large cage at night outside (they fear someone might throw poisoned food into the yard).

    I never saw her again after her employer died and we left.

  29. eddy mad says:

  33. Lisa Godin says:

    If I had Doberman I'd treat them like I did my passed on Chihuahua. Doting, spoiling, needing a supervisor as I did my lawn work, helping me mail bills, lounging on my couch watching TV, sharing chicken with, sleeping with being a watch dog. I don't hear good and without my Chihuahua who would tell me when someone was around I do feel uneasy. I was taken to one shelter but not a single Doberman so a Pit Bull comforted me as I was a wreck after my girl passed. But I don't have a ride any more to find a Doberman. So many scammers out there.

  34. Lisa Godin says:

    My cat doesn't follow me from room to room, I wouldn't mind a dog following me everywhere. My Chihuahua never did that unless she wanted her snack.

  35. Lisa Godin says:

    In 1981 a passed away friend took me to meet a friend of his. He had two. One was Doberman-Shepherd mix. His face looked a little German Shepherdy but his body was Doberman. Our first meeting we just eyed each other. Second meeting my late friend wanted to talk to his friend so he said stay with Leo. I said great! So we went into the backyard where I sat beside a tree. I was scratching his back and stopped and next thing I know Leo turns around and growls at me. I said very conversationally don't growl at me. I scratched his back again stopped and not one growl. I then wanted to get up and stretch my legs. Well I was about to get up and Leo rammed his snout into my throat pinning me to the tree. I told him I wasn't going anywhere just needed to stretch. Kinda hard to talk with dog snout in your throat. So I took my hand, grasped his nose pushed it off my throat and said don't you ever do that to me again. I was firm. I released him expecting to be torn to shreds. Leo didn't do a thing. I stood up, stretched and sat back down and was petting and scratching Leo's back. I made my boundaries clear. No growling no pinning me. So I got up because I was wondering how long my friend would be talking and Leo was like attached to me. We walked and to the house and the other Doberman came around me. There was something about him that made me uneasy. He didn't do anything but I didn't feel comfortable, Leo sensed it and attacked the other Doberman. Well I didn't expect that and told him to leave him alone. Leo instantly stopped came to me. I was confuses. Why did Leo get all protective? It was only the second meeting!

    Well when I heard his owner was trying to make him mean, mixing gunpowder of all things in his food well I crowed about it. I was livid! I was banned from seeing Leo because I had a problem with the owner. Leo wasn't mean by nature. But to this day I think of Leo. He never had the attention I gave him and he sorta adopted me. He's long dead by now and I miss him a lot. When I got my Chihuahua this guy was walking his Doberman in the place I was pottying my dog across from my apartment building. I asked if I could pet him. I was allowed. Max was very laid back and he tolerated my puppy. I've secretly had a crush on Dobermans since. What most surprised me was that Leo allowed me to discipline him. Me a stranger! He stuck to me like glue. I felt safe with him. The other Doberman was a little off. He just looked at me wrong I guess. Guess Leo was supersensitive to that feeling. I didn't expect an attack on the other one though.

    Extremely loyal and Extremely smart

  37. Judging Budgie says:

    I have a greyhound at the moment and in the long run I've been looking into dobermanns. I have severe anxiety that prevents me from leaving the house on my own and have found having a dog really helpful. I can now go to the shops, visit friends, catch the bus and generally go out and about (I've been able to take up hiking again!).
    I'd like a protective dog who'd be able to come with me everywhere and spend every waking moment with me. I love dog training and enjoy long walks.
    As much as I love my greyhound, he gets tired very quickly (even though he is the snuggliest!)
    Basic summary:
    *Plenty of energy
    *Smart and enjoys training

  38. Smoriinz says:

    what about leavin them home alone?

  39. Doug H. in VA says:

    a Dobe is a 'working breed' and that means an animal that needs a job to do every day. Nearly no owner takes a dog through 1 basic obedience class. And working breeds need constant handling and understanding. Don't pretend because the dog will be abandoned and destroyed.

  40. E says:

    The guarding thing is really true and needs to be emphasized. I work at a doggie daycare and we have a single doberman that boards on occasion. He's an absolute sweetheart but we can't pet him at all and can't let him stay still in one place for too long periods of time. If we pet and love on him too much he claims us as his and will snap and go after any dogs that approach the staff, we keep him moving so he can't claim space the same way, such as play equipment (for the same reason, keep private toys private, don't take them to public spaces). I usually pet him at the end of the day after he's left the group and gone in for bed, assuming he's been a good boy (always is as long as his staff member knows what their doing).

  47. ThcRicc #916 says:

    Yeah not going to lie, i was smoking in my back yard with my Doby cause he cant stand to be a second without me & out of no where he started barking at nothing & i was frightened lol.

  48. mwbright says:

    My Doberman passed more than three decades ago, and I'm still in mourning. I just haven't been able to get another. The agony of losing him is still too raw. I just hope I get to see him in the next life.

  49. Gunzee says:

    I think my dobe is broken, i have to guard him. He's scared of small dogs! Strange as medium or large he's really happy around.
    If you're thinking about getting one please know that from 0 to 3 years they'll be hyper as hell. Even with 2/3 hours of bike side running mine had no of switch. At >3 years they, from my experience become totally mature and so relaxed.
    I've seen two dog owners give their dobes up due to this. One actually got an ear full from me as i offered to take him more than once.
    Also these dogs are intense family dogs, they're not the ones to be left outside in the garden. They'll howl and whine all night long. My current, third dobe doesn't even let me use the toilet or shower with the door closed. If you dislike clingy dogs avoid dobes. They'll literally want to watch everything you do.
    One benefit is you'll never need a hot water bottle again. They are lap dogs and if given the chance will curl up on your legs in bed.
    One thing people don't realise is how sensitive this breed is. You never shout, berate or even train using any negativity. That really goes for any dog, but dobes can easily lose confidence if treated that way.
    Also they'll try to be the master! If you're submissive they'll quickly begin setting the rules.

    Lol… your video has good information, but almost all is referring that people shouldn't get a Doberman. I think you could rename the video stating what you are showing…. like why you shouldn't have a doberman….. FYI: I have 2, I dont have any problem you state in the video, I have not trained them and they are fully obedient, don't bark without a reason. I'm thinking getting my third.

And this dog follows me around. Yes you're right the Doberman will follow you around room-to-room. They are excellent beautiful gorgeous dogs

  69. My Svensson says:

    My dobermann was my absolutely best friend and so loyal and gentle. She was also extremely powerful and we trained several hours every day, when we didn't we walked in the forest so overall I spend 4-8 hours each day. I will never forget her and she is highly missed but when I think about owning one again and remembering all the time I spend to solve problems and the sadest thing that also became a problem was that most ppl are really afraid of them and they of course take advantage of it. One day when I have the time I will own one of the most beautiful and loving dogs again but meanwhile I have easier breeds such as saluki and dashound.
    It's so sad that ppl doesn't understand what a dobermann needs before they get one. In wrong hands they can be dangerous, in right hands the most loving life companion.❤️

  70. Mary Berry says:

    I got one..and he is a joy but also apin kn the butt..warning they are velcro digs for sure…and suuuuoer hyper…loves to play..BUT MOST OF ALL THEY ARE SUOER SMART AND VEEEERY PROTECTIVE.

Never had a bad reaction, even with the children of the neighbourhood , but it was vigilant and protective as well. I could have slept well at night even with the door unlocked because I knew it was there . it was a very polite , intelligent and obedient dog and many things I didn’t need to teach it because it was a natural learner I didn’t need to repeat the same thing 100 times .it was the best dog ever , I miss you ARGO Rest In Peace ❤️
