I'm in the process of deciding which breed of dog to adopt, and I'm torn between getting a Pit Bull or a Doberman. One of the most important factors for me is the level of obedience each breed possesses. I want a dog that can follow commands and be well-behaved.
I've done some research, but I'm still unsure which breed is better in terms of obedience. I've heard that both Pit Bulls and Dobermans are highly trainable and intelligent, but I'm not sure which one would be easier to train and more obedient.
So, my question is, who's level of obedience is top between a Pit Bull and the Doberman? How do they compare and what should I consider before making my final decision?
Thanks in advance for your help!
I have only owned a Doberman and from my experience, I agree that they are highly obedient dogs. They are smart, quick learners, and respond well to positive reinforcement training. Dobermans are also very loyal and can be very protective of their owners and families.
In terms of their obedience compared to Pit Bulls, I can't say much as I haven't had personal experience with Pit Bulls. But from what I've read, both breeds are known for being intelligent and trainable.
One thing to keep in mind with Dobermans is their high energy level. They require a lot of exercise and mental stimulation to stay healthy and happy. Without adequate exercise and attention, they can become restless and destructive.
It's also important to choose a reputable breeder when getting a Doberman, as some may be prone to health issues like hip dysplasia and heart problems. Proper socialization is also key to preventing aggressive behavior towards strangers or other dogs.
All in all, Dobermans are loyal and obedient companions that require a lot of attention and care. With proper training and socialization, they can be well-behaved and make great family pets.
