I'm currently considering getting a Doberman as my next pet, but I'm a bit concerned about their temperament. I understand they have a reputation for being guard dogs, but I'm not looking for an aggressive dog. I've read conflicting information online about their temperament, some saying that they're loyal and affectionate while others have mentioned that they can be stubborn and difficult to train.
I want to make sure that I'm fully informed before making a decision, so I'm hoping those of you who have experience with Dobermans can shed some light on their temperament. What has been your experience with Dobermans in terms of their behavior and personality? Are they good family pets or are they better suited for experienced dog owners? Any insights or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
