I'm a parent of two young children and I'm considering getting a Doberman as a pet. I've always loved the breed and their protective nature, but I'm concerned about their behavior around kids. I've heard mixed opinions about whether or not they are suitable for families with children, so I wanted to hear from other parents who have experience with Dobermans.
My children are ages 5 and 7 and they are very active. We have a large backyard where they love to play and we enjoy going on family walks in our neighborhood. I have researched the breed and I understand that they require plenty of exercise and socialization to prevent any aggressive tendencies. But even with proper training, are they still a safe choice for families with kids?
I would really appreciate any advice or personal experiences from Doberman owners who also have children. Thank you in advance for your help!
