I am thinking of getting a Doberman as a pet and I am wondering if I can train the dog on my own or if I should hire a professional trainer. This will be my first time owning a dog and I am a bit nervous about the responsibility that comes with it.
I have read that Dobermans can be prone to aggression and can be difficult to train. I want my dog to be well-behaved and obedient, so I am willing to put in the work to train it properly. However, I am not sure if I have the knowledge and experience to do it on my own.
On the other hand, I am also worried about the cost of hiring a professional trainer. Can I realistically train my own Doberman or should I invest in a professional trainer to ensure that my dog is well-behaved?
I appreciate any advice or personal experiences that you may have in regards to training a Doberman. Thank you in advance!
