Hi everyone, I am considering getting a Doberman as a family pet and have been doing some research about their temperament around children. I have two young children, a 4-year-old and a 6-year-old, and wanted to know if Dobermans do well with children. I know that Dobermans are highly intelligent and loyal dogs, but I am concerned about their reputation for being aggressive or protective. Have any of you had experience with Dobermans and children? Are they gentle and patient with kids, or should I reconsider this breed? Thank you for any input you can provide.
