I am considering adopting a Doberman Pinscher and have been doing a lot of research on their personality and behavior. While doing so, I came across the term "velcro dog" and I'm not sure if this applies to Dobermans. I know that some breeds, like the Labrador Retriever and the German Shepherd, are known for being velcro dogs because they form strong bonds with their owners and like to be near them most of the time.
I am interested in getting a dog that will be loyal and affectionate, but I also don't want a dog that will become overly attached and suffer from separation anxiety when left alone. Can anyone who has experience with Doberman Pinschers share their thoughts on whether they consider them to be velcro dogs or not? And if so, how do they manage to prevent separation anxiety?
Thank you in advance for your insights!
