I've been considering getting a protection dog for my home and family, and I'm wondering if a Doberman would be a good choice. I've heard that they are very protective and loyal, but I wanted to get some opinions from those who have experience with Dobermans or other similar breeds.
I live in a suburban area and have a decently sized yard, but I also have neighbors nearby. I want a dog that can deter potential intruders and protect my family if necessary. I have two young children, so I also want a dog that is good with kids and won't be overly aggressive.
Do you think a Doberman would be a good fit for my situation? Are there any other breeds that you would recommend? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
