I am considering getting a Doberman as a family pet, but I have some concerns about whether they are suitable for families with young children. I have two children under the age of six and I want to make sure that they will be safe around a new pet.
I have always admired Dobermans for their loyalty and protective nature, but I have also heard that they can be aggressive and have a tendency to be dominant. I don't want to risk the safety of my children, so I want to hear from other families who have Dobermans and young children. Have you had any issues with your dog's behavior? Do they get along well with children and other pets in the household?
I also want to know what kind of training and socialization is necessary for a Doberman to be a well-behaved family pet. I am willing to put in the time and effort, but I want to make sure that I am capable of handling a breed with such a strong personality.
Overall, I am just looking for some guidance and advice from other experienced dog owners who have dealt with similar situations. Thank you in advance for your help!
