Energetic, watchful, determined, alert, fearless, loyal and obedient…

That’s a Doberman Pinscher. For the past 100 years, our breeders have been producing a stable, smart, discerning dog capable of doing it all. From loving, loyal family companion, to search and rescue, to agility champ, to service/therapy dog, to police and military protection, today’s Doberman Pinscher is the aristocrat of canines.

The Doberman Pinscher is known best, perhaps, for its guarding qualities. But the dog of yesterday’s scary movies has been transformed through years of meticulous breeding into a fun-loving, exceptional athlete and a watchful, protective, and above all, discerning companion who has no trouble accurately distinguishing between friend and foe. The key word is discerning.

Among the top smartest canine breeds in the world, the Doberman Pinscher is breathtakingly perceptive, intuitive, and sensitive. Properly trained and socialized, your Doberman won’t just place itself between you and a visible threat. As owner after owner can attest, your Doberman will anticipate that threat to you and your child, sometimes in uncanny ways.

Naturally, we’re biased. For us, the Doberman is, paws down, the world’s Number One breed. But that said, the Doberman just isn’t for everyone. Dobermans require a calm, stable, firm, and smart pack leader, or they will assume that role for you. They must also have plenty of vigorous exercise every day, and stimulating mental challenges. Without these things, they will become destructive of themselves and of your home.

One last thing: Dobermans are nick-named “Velcro dogs” because they stick to their people. Heaven for a Doberman is leaning into you for a prolonged head rub. Balancing that well-known guardian instinct is the world’s most loving heart and a sense of humor that will keep you laughing its whole life long.
