I am currently considering getting a Doberman and would like to know if they are suited to apartment living. I live in a small one-bedroom apartment in the city and I am worried if it would be too small or if my Doberman will get bored and restless in such a small environment.
I am aware that Dobermans are a high-energy breed and require a lot of exercise, but I am willing to make sure they get the necessary exercise through walks and runs in the park. However, I am more concerned about their behavior indoors. Are they prone to destructive behavior or excessive barking when kept indoors for long periods of time?
I am also considering getting a Doberman as a guard dog, so I want to make sure they will be alert and vigilant even in an apartment setting.
Any advice or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
