I am in the market for a new dog and have been torn between getting a Weimaraner or a Doberman Pinscher. I am looking for a dog with a high energy level that is intelligent and trainable, but also good with children and other pets.
I have done some research on both breeds and have found that Weimaraners are known for their athleticism and love of the outdoors, while Dobermans are highly loyal and protective.
I have a large backyard and live in a suburban area with plenty of parks and trails nearby. I also have young children and a cat at home, so I need a dog that will be gentle and patient with them.
Does anyone have experience with either breed and can provide insight into which one may be a better fit for my lifestyle? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
