I have been considering getting a Doberman as a new addition to our family, but I have some concerns about how they interact with children and other family members. I have a 4-year-old son and a teenage daughter, and I want to make sure that any new pet we bring into the house will be a good fit for our family.
I have done some research on Dobermans and it seems that they are loyal and protective dogs, which is appealing to me. However, I have also read that they can be quite dominant and may need careful training and socialization. I am worried that this could make them a difficult pet to introduce to children or other new family members.
I want to know if there are any special considerations that I should keep in mind when introducing a Doberman to children or other family members. Should I be concerned about their protective nature? Are there any specific training techniques or tips that would be helpful in making sure that they are a good fit for our family?
Any advice or experiences that you can share would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.
