I am planning to get a Doberman puppy as my new furry companion. As I am new to the breed, I am a bit confused about what type of personality I should look for when selecting a puppy. I want a puppy that will fit well with my family and lifestyle.
I have researched about Dobermans and found out that they are intelligent, loyal, and protective dogs. However, I have also read about their reputation for being aggressive and difficult to train, which makes me a bit hesitant. I don't want an aggressive or dominant Doberman that may pose a risk to my family or other pets.
Therefore, I am here to ask for advice on what type of personality traits should I look for in a Doberman puppy. What are the indications that a puppy will grow up to be a friendly and well-behaved dog? Should I focus on their behavior during interactions, or is there any other way to determine their personality?
Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
