I've been doing some research on different dog breeds and I'm wondering if a Doberman Pinscher would make a good family pet compared to a German Shepherd or a Labrador. My family and I are looking for a dog that is loyal, playful, and protective but also good with children. We have two young kids aged 5 and 7, so it's important that the dog is gentle around them.
I've read that Doberman Pinschers are intelligent and loyal dogs, but can also be stubborn and require a lot of training. German Shepherds are known for their protective instincts and obedience, but can be wary of strangers. And Labradors are often considered one of the best family pets due to their friendly and outgoing nature, but can also be prone to excitement and jumping.
I would love to hear from anyone who has experience with any of these breeds or has any advice on which one would be the best fit for our family. Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions!
