I have been considering getting a doberman puppy for quite some time now. I have done my research on the breed and I know they require a lot of time, attention, and exercise. However, I am concerned about the hidden costs associated with owning a doberman puppy that I might not have accounted for.
I understand that purchasing a puppy comes with the cost of initial vaccines, spaying/neutering, food, and toys. But, are there other expenses that I should be aware of? For example, some breeds have a predisposition to certain health conditions that may require expensive treatments. Do doberman puppies fall within this category?
I want to ensure that I am fully prepared to take on the financial responsibility of owning a doberman puppy before committing to getting one. Any insights or advice from experienced doberman owners would be highly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
