I am new to the world of dog ownership and I have been doing a lot of research on different breeds that would make great family pets. I have come across the Doberman Pinscher and I am interested in learning more about their temperament and suitability as a family pet.
From what I have read, Doberman Pinschers are known for their loyalty and protective nature, making them great watchdogs. However, I am wondering if they can also be friendly and loving towards their family members.
I have two young children at home and I want to ensure that any dog we bring into our home is safe to be around them. Can Dobermans be trained to be gentle with children and other pets, or are they better suited as watchdogs?
I would appreciate any advice or personal experiences that anyone can share about owning a Doberman Pinscher as a family pet. Thank you in advance for your help!
