I have been struggling with anxiety and depression for a long time now and have been considering getting a therapy animal to help me cope. I have always been fascinated by Dobermans and I was wondering if they make good therapy animals?
I know that Dobermans are known for their loyalty and protectiveness, but I am not sure if their energy level and strong personality would be suitable for a therapy animal. I am also concerned about possible aggression if they feel their owner is in danger.
Has anyone had experience with Dobermans as therapy animals? Are they calm and gentle enough to provide emotional support? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated.
