I have a 2 year old doberman, and I can honestly say I can't see myself not having at least one dobe in the future at all times. They are the most loyal breed you can find, and despite their tough reputation, they're enormous cuddlers and real babies. They're one of the most intelligent breeds on earth, so obedience training is quite easy, even for a first time owner as long as you stick to positive methods. Ignore anyone who talks about dominance or being pack leader as these sorts of… Read Full Review

My Dobe is 8 months old. He is such a loyal, intelligent dog. We got him at 10 weeks old. He was fully house trained at 12 weeks old. He is soo good around my 8 and 6 year old kids. I would suggest if you work a lot or are out of the house a lot, that you seriously consider another breed. Jack, as well as other Dobes , are very big people dogs. They need to be around people a lot. Jack hates being left alone. When he's with us, he will not leave our sides. Actually, he prefers to sit or lay… Read Full Review

Our first doberman lived until he was 15 years 8 months old (I kid you not!). Considering he nearly died when he was 10 from a very serious nose infection where the specialist vet had to perform 4 life-saving operations including blood transfusions etc. So to think we had over 5 more wonderful years with him it was a miracle! We chose to have him put to sleep eventually as he was having too hard of a time getting up and down with his hind legs, God love him though he kept trying but we could… Read Full Review

My 4 year old dog just died from a heart condition. He also could barely walk from severe hip and back dysplasia. During the first year of his life, he was treated at the dermatologist for mange - all from poor, poor breeding. I contacted the breeder multiple times, only to be told his medical problems were MY fault. The only saving grace was that my precious dog had the best medical care. His life, however short, enriched our lives. I pray no other family has to endure this tragedy. Please do… Read Full Review

I lost my second doberman one month ago at the age of 14. Our first dobie lived until 13. We have had two beautiful, faithful, loving dogs. They are eager to please and will guard you for life - when you least expect it! I have had 3 sons and both dogs tolerated the kids. I never left other children unsupervised around my dogs when my children were present. If other children chased after my boys our dog would get uneasy - perhaps because they felt their family member was in danger. Both… Read Full Review

My Dobermann is nearly 3 years old and is an absolute joy! I have never owned a dog before so I lept right in at the deep end. I would advise it's probably best not to get a dobie if you don't have experiance with dogs. They are extremely intelligent and demand alot of social play. They love to please so obedience training 15 mins a day is recommended to keep them in check. You MUST make sure you are the alpha or they will run rings around you. Lots of exercise is an absolute must. They are… Read Full Review

My beautiful and regal Cezar died today of sudden heart failure. He was 11 years and 10 months old. He was both my children born, now ages 7 & 10, and always loved and protected them. He would gently put himself between my kids, and strangers at all times. Never being aggressive, just letting the other person know that he always had my kids back.
He loved to play, and was scary intelligent. That is one reason I have always loved Dobe's, they are so very smart.
He was my best friend, and I never… Read Full Review

In honour of my 5 year old Doberman dog. They make cracking dogs as long as you have lots of time for them. They are very demanding and will whinge you to death if you ignore them or don't walk them often enough. These dogs can literally run a marathon a day and still keep going! Don't ever hit a doberman. Their sensitive and intelligent nature and the way they absolutely idolise their owner can make striking a doberman a one way street. First they will loose respect for you and become less… Read Full Review

Our Doberman Zak is now 3 years old we got him when he was 8 weeks. He is a fantastic playmate to the kids, infact he is like kid number 3. Very easy to train took him to socialising classes and puppy training and enjoys doing little tricks. has a tendency to pull on lead but that's only because he is excited about going out. Doesn't like the rain though but does enjoy the snow. good eater but sloppy drinker! Have a question though the last couple of months he seems to have problems… Read Full Review

Your dobes sound perfect my girl certainly isn't. She is 6 months old and we are all completely in love with her. However i wish she had come with a manual. She keeps us on the go 24/7, she's a thief, underwear being her favourite thing. She doesn't greet you, she levels you out. She eats anything and everything if its not pinned down. She has been the most fun we've had in years but are hoping that one day her puppy classes sink in hehe… Read Full Review

My boyfriend had owned Doberman before, but I was really nervous, as I never had. We got a puppy 8 weeks old and she is the most gorgeous dog now. She is almost a year old and is really well behaved.
At first I made her sleep downstairs but she cried so we let her sleep by our bed! She still sleeps there now and is no trouble (apart from when she decides she wants her belly scratched at 6am haha!)
We walk her once a day for half an hour and she has a run off lead twice a week, she is calm at… Read Full Review

My puppy is 10 weeks old and he is all of the above. when he gets tired he runds rond like mad and gets a little disobediant, but all you need to do is MAKE him go to bed for a sleep and he wakes up a good boy again!
I would suggest establishing pack leadership STRAIGHT AWAY as my pup tried challenging me quite soon!
Great dog, such a clown!
