I have been considering adopting a Doberman as my new fur baby, but I have heard mixed opinions about this breed. Some people say that they are aggressive and make bad pets, while others say they are loyal and loving companions. I am confused and unsure about whether a Doberman is a bad dog or not.
I live in a suburban area, and my house has a small backyard that my current dog enjoys playing in. I have no children, but I do have nieces and nephews who visit occasionally. I have experience training and caring for dogs, but I have never owned a Doberman before.
I am hoping to gain some insight from those who have experience with Dobermans. Are they really bad dogs, or is it just a stereotype? Can they live in a smaller yard or do they require a lot of space to run around in? Would they be good with kids or should I be concerned about their temperaments?
Any advice and personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
