The big, strong Doberman is happiest with his urge to move around in a house with a fenced garden. A regular, long run where he can let off steam is essential for him: if he is kept as a family dog, the conditions must be right.
The perfect home for the Doberman
If representatives of this breed of dog have an experienced, safe caregiver and have had a good, consistent upbringing, they are wonderful family dogs. They get on well with other animals if they have been used to them from the start.
However, the intelligent, willing to learn and sporty four-legged friends are not undemanding dogs. For their species-appropriate husbandry, there is no substitute for varied employment and occupancy, and thus that their owners have enough time and desire to do something like this. Dog sports such as agility or obedience training, for example, offer very good opportunities to do justice to the animals and make full use of them.
Regular care in everyday life
The Doberman hardly needs fur care: he has a short coat without undercoat and is therefore very easy to care for. Now and then brushing is enough and gives the dog fur a nice shine. However, check the eyes, ears and teeth of your four-legged friend regularly so that you should see a veterinarian in the event of any abnormalities.
