The American Kennel Club awards the prestigious canine Good Citizen Certificate to the breed for its consistent adherence to good behavior throughout its lifetime. The breed has held this title since 1924. If you want to show your dog or puppy how proud of their status they deserve, then you might want to consider breeding a Doberman dog.
One of the many wonderful things about the Doberman dog is their great temperament and beautiful coat. This breed was developed in Germany in the late 1800s as a cross between the German shepherd and the Doberman pinscher dogs. Originally these dogs were used as herders and herded animals. Today, they are famous for being skilled editors. These well-balanced and intelligent dogs are quick to learn and easy to train, making them an invaluable member of any family.
Breeding the Doberman may require some work on your part because of their long and curious nature. If you plan to breed one from lines that share your bloodline (say you are a German Shepherd owner and your dog is a Doberman pinscher) then you will have the advantage of knowing all of your dog’s characteristics from the moment it arrives into your care. The long life span of the Doberman pinscher dogs make them a popular choice as pet-bred companions because they can easily provide the family with another generation of quality dogs. In fact, the breed is so resilient that even after crossing two lines of the Badger and the Doberman, they produce offspring that have an even longer lifespan than the original lines.
However, you need to know that just like with any other dog, there are possible health issues bred in these animals. Before considering starting a Doberman pup in your household, be sure that you are ready for the responsibility because this breed has its own set of challenges. The coat requires regular brushing, since it is prone to matting and since it sheds quite a bit. Pups do not mix well with other pets and can become quite demanding when it comes to attention. Also, while most breeders encourage responsible breeding, there are still some who do not take care of the health and grooming needs of their dogs.
A good breeder will also ask a lot of questions in order to understand what type of doggie he is getting before bringing the pup home. Once you visit the shelter or rescue where your puppy came from, you will be able to observe the pup in person. There are many different dog breeds out there, but it seems that the Doberman is one of the rarest. This small dog stands at about three inches high and weighs about ten pounds, although breeders sometimes give them a little more, because they tend to have extra fat in their bodies.
The doberman is known to be a very healthy breed that is eager to do anything and everything you ask of it. However, if you want a small dog that is easy to train and is relatively easy to manage around other dogs, then you might want to consider adopting a Doberman pincher. It should not take long for you to fall in love with this breed, as they are very lovable. A Doberman is sure to bring a smile to your face and to the hearts of your family and friends for a long time to come.
