Hey guys, I've been thinking about adopting a Doberman as a pet, but I'm not sure if they are intimidating or not. I'm a single woman living in a relatively safe neighborhood, and I want a dog that can protect me if needed without scaring off my friends and family. I've heard that Dobermans are loyal and protective, but I'm worried that their reputation might intimidate people. Can anyone who has experience with Dobermans tell me if they are generally intimidating or not? And if so, how can I train my Doberman to only be protective when necessary and friendly otherwise? Thanks in advance for your help!
