I'm considering getting a Doberman lab mix as a family pet, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea. I've done some research on both breeds, and I know that Dobermans can be protective and loyal but also need a lot of exercise and mental stimulation. Labs, on the other hand, are known to be friendly, easy-going, and great with kids.
I have a 6-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son, and we live in a suburban area with a fenced backyard. We're an active family and love to go on hikes and long walks. However, we do have a cat, and I'm not sure how well a Doberman lab mix would get along with her.
Can anyone share their experience with this hybrid breed? Is it a good family pet? Are there any concerns or challenges that we should be aware of before adopting one? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
