Hi everyone, I am thinking of getting a dog for my family and I have always loved the look of Doberman Pinschers. However, I have two young children at home and I am wondering if Doberman dogs are kid-friendly. I know that they can be very protective of their owners, but I don't want a dog that will be aggressive towards my kids or cause any harm. Can anyone share their experiences with Dobermans and kids? Are they typically good with children or should I consider a different breed?
Hi there, I currently have a Doberman Pinscher and two young children and he is incredibly kid-friendly. He's very patient and gentle with my kids and loves to play with them. However, I do know that not all Dobermans are the same, so it's important to do your research and choose a reputable breeder with a good reputation for breeding family-friendly dogs. Additionally, it's crucial to socialize and train your dog from a young age, and supervise all interactions between your dog and children. From my personal experience, I strongly believe that Dobermans can make great family dogs as long as they are raised and trained properly.
