Hey, I am a first-time dog owner and I'm trying to decide between a German Shepherd and a Doberman. I live in a not-so-safe neighborhood, and I want a dog that can protect me and my family if need be. I've heard that both German Shepherds and Dobermans are great watchdogs, but I'm not sure which one is more protective of its owner. Can anyone share their experiences with these breeds and give me some advice? Thank you!
