Brushing your Dobie's teeth 2-3 times a week will help prevent tarter build up and remove lurking bacteria. Chew hides are great for entertaining and brushing.
Dobermans have a semi-coarse overcoat & a soft undercoat. They should be combed one to two times a week and, depending on their activity level, bathed weekely.
Dobermans are very athletic. Daily exercise is recommended. Dobies have been known to chew on items when they have no way of releasing all their energy.
Active Dobermans will typically require a higher level of fat and protein. Adults can eat from 2-5 cups of food a day.
All Dobies are different but depending on their personality, many will whine or bark if they are in need of attention.
Louis Dobermann was the first Doberman Pinscher breeder in 1890. Dobermann was a tax collector who also ran the Apolda dog pound. Dobermann found himself having to travel during late nights with large amounts of money and this lead to him creating the Doberman breed. One thing to understand is that Dobermans are extremely athletic and intelligent. It is almost impossible to find a job this gentle giant can't handle. Dobermans have been used in a variety of fields and sports. Some include: police work, scent tracking, coursing, search & rescue, therapy, and helping the blind. When trained right, there is very little that this breed can't handle.
