Understanding and Training a Dobermann


The Dobermann is a strong, intelligent, and adaptable breed that learns well. Firm, but calm, consistent obedience and activity are essential to maintain control of this dog.

The breed is also known to be restless without something to do, therefore give your Dobe a purpose and they will respond intently and willingly.

The Dobermann is a powerful breed and can be quite headstrong at times. Aggressive games should be controlled from an early age to discourage unsafe and undesirable behaviour. Proper leadership is paramount.

Well-balanced Dobermanns are highly sociable and crave attention, bonding tightly to

their owner with the utmost of loyalty.
