How much do Dobermans shed?

Hi everyone,

I am considering getting a Doberman as my next pet, but I am concerned about shedding. I have had previous experiences with dogs that shed a lot, and I found it quite challenging to manage the hair around the house. As a busy person, I would like to avoid the hassle of constantly cleaning the floors and furniture. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone here could provide me with some insight into how much Dobermans shed. I know that all dogs shed to some extent, but I am looking for a breed that doesn't shed excessively. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Hello everyone,

I have a Doberman, and I have to say that compared to other dog breeds I have had experience with, their shedding is relatively low. While there are times of the year where they tend to shed more, with regular grooming and brushing, you can keep it under control. Dobermans have short hair, and you can use a soft brush or grooming mitt to remove loose hairs. Over time, you will get used to the shedding, and it won't bother you as much. You will hardly notice shedding if you have tile or hardwood floors, but it will still be visible on certain types of carpets.

So, I wouldn't overly worry about shedding if you're considering getting a Doberman. They make great pets and are incredibly loyal and protective. Just add in regular brushing to your grooming routine, and you'll be all set.

Hope this helps!


Hey there,

I own a Doberman, and I'd say that they do shed a moderate amount. It's not excessive, but you will notice hair around your house. Our experience so far is that regular brushing and a healthy diet help to minimize shedding. We do find that our Doberman sheds more during seasons where there is a temperature change. For example, in spring and fall, we notice our dog shedding more than usual. Another thing to keep in mind is that Dobermans have extremely fine hair, which means that the hair may be harder to see, but it's still there.

Overall, I'd say that it's not a deal-breaker for owning a Doberman, but you should be prepared for some level of shedding. Hope this helps!


Greetings all,

I have had a Doberman for a few years now, and I can attest to the fact that they don't shed too much. My experience has been quite positive in terms of shedding. I brush my Doberman regularly, and that keeps his coat looking clean and healthy. I do notice some hair on my clothes and furniture, especially during fall and winter months, but it's not too significant, and a quick sweep or vacuum takes care of it. However, keep in mind that every dog is different and may have different shedding patterns based on genetics, nutrition, and lifestyle. So, before getting a Doberman or any other breed, it is essential to do your research and consider your living situation, including allergies and time availability.

I hope this helps.


Hi there,

As an owner of a Doberman for the past year, I can confidently say that they are not heavy shedders. I was also concerned about managing the hair around the house before getting my Doberman, but their shedding has been relatively manageable. In fact, I have found that regular brushing and grooming sessions have helped to keep shedding to a minimum. Dobermans have short hair, which does not stick to furniture or clothing as easily as long-haired breeds. Therefore, I would say that if you are looking for a low-shedding breed, the Doberman is an excellent choice.

Hope that helps!


Hi there,

I have had Dobermans for years, and I have found that their shedding can be somewhat moderate. They have short, fine hair, and you'll likely see some hair on your clothes and furniture. However, it really isn't something to worry about. Weekly brushing with a rubber grooming mitt or a soft brush can help reduce shedding. I also recommend a regular bath, which can help loosen and remove any dead hair. My Dobermans have always been active and love to run around outside, so extra vacuuming or sweeping here and there is a small price to pay for their love and loyalty.

Hope this helps.


Hello everyone,

I have been a Doberman owner for many years now, and I can say that their shedding is minimal. Dobermans have short hair and don't have an undercoat. This means that they don't shed as much as other breeds that have a thick undercoat. Regular brushing and grooming can keep shedding under control, but it's not something you should worry about too much. I use a soft brush and groom my dog once in two weeks or so, and that's enough to keep shedding under control.

Dobermans are great pets, and I absolutely love mine. They are loyal, intelligent, and protective of their family, and they do shed less than many other breeds. So, don't let shedding concerns deter you from getting a Doberman.

I hope this helps.



I have a Doberman and can happily report that they shed very minimally. I was also concerned about shedding before getting one because I didn't have the time to clean that frequently. But my experience with my Doberman has been really great. They have short, smooth coats, which make them easy to groom, and they don't shed as much as other breeds. I only need to brush them once a week, and that's enough to keep excess hair under control. So, if shedding is your main concern, I think you should definitely consider getting a Doberman.

I hope this helps!


Hey there,

I had a Doberman for a few years, and I can say that their shedding can be a little more than some other breeds. While it's not extreme or unmanageable, it was still noticeable. As much as I loved my Doberman, I did find myself vacuuming and sweeping a little more frequently than I would have liked. That being said, regular brushing did help control shedding to some extent, and it also helps strengthen the bond between you and your dog. If you're considering getting a Doberman, I would recommend you to invest in a good vacuum and add regular brushing to your grooming routine. Dobermans make great companions, and shedding shouldn't be the only deciding factor.

Hope this helps!
