I grew up with a Doberman when I was a kid and have always loved the breed. I am now considering getting a Doberman puppy for my own family, but I have two children under the age of 15. I have read mixed reviews on whether or not this breed of dog is good with kids, so I wanted to get some input from people who have experience with Dobermans.
Do you think that Doberman dogs are a good breed for families with children under the age of 15? Have you had any experiences with this breed and children that you can share? Any advice or tips for raising a Doberman with kids would be greatly appreciated.
I'm the proud owner of a Doberman named Django who is amazing with kids. I've got two boys, aged 9 and 12, and Django has been wonderful with both of them. He is a high-energy dog, but he's also very gentle and loving with my kids.
I think that Dobermans can be a great breed for families with kids, but it's important to remember that every dog is different, and their temperament can often depend on their upbringing and training. When we got Django, we made sure to socialize him with both adults and children, so he feels comfortable around people of all ages.
Of course, as with any dog, it's important to supervise your dog and your children when they're together to make sure that no one gets hurt. But overall, I would certainly recommend Dobermans to families with kids, as long as you're willing to put in the effort to train and socialize them properly.
