I am a first-time dog owner and I am considering getting a Doberman Pinscher. I've done some research on the breed and have heard conflicting opinions about their loyalty and affection towards their owners. Some sources claim that Dobermans can be aloof and not particularly attached to their owners, while others say that they are incredibly loyal and loving pets.
I want to make sure that I choose a breed that will show me affection and love as their owner. So, I'm wondering if any Doberman owners on this forum can share their personal experiences with their pets. Do Dobermans generally have a strong bond with their owners and show affection towards them? Or are they more independent and aloof?
Any insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
