I recently adopted a Doberman and I am planning to take him out in public areas such as parks and dog-friendly places. I have heard a lot about Dobermans being protective and sometimes aggressive, so I want to make sure that I take all necessary precautions to avoid any incidents or uncomfortable situations.
As a new dog owner, I am not sure what measures I need to take to ensure my dog's safety and the safety of those around him. What are some essential precautions that I should keep in mind when taking my Doberman out in public? Should I use a leash or a muzzle? How can I train him to behave well around strangers and other dogs?
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
