I am considering getting a Doberman as a pet, and I am curious about whether they need to be kept indoors or outdoors. I currently live in a house with a large backyard, but I also work full-time and won't be able to spend all of my time with the dog. I want to make sure that I provide a comfortable living environment for the dog and keep them safe and happy.
I have read that Dobermans are social animals and require regular exercise and human interaction. However, I have also seen some owners keep their dogs primarily outdoors in a kennel or dog house. I am wondering if this is a suitable living situation for a Doberman, or if they need to be kept inside where they can be more easily supervised and engaged with.
Any advice or personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. I want to make an informed decision about whether a Doberman is the right fit for my lifestyle and living situation. Thank you!
