Hey there, fellow dog lovers! I am considering getting a Doberman as my new furry friend, but I keep reading about Dobermans having hip problems. This worries me because I obviously want my dog to be healthy and happy. I've heard conflicting information, though, about why they are more prone to hip dysplasia and other hip issues. Some people say it's because of the way they are bred or because they are larger dogs, while others say it's simply genetic. Can someone here shed some light on the matter and give me some advice on how to prevent or manage hip issues in Dobermans? I want to make sure I'm making a responsible and informed decision before getting a Doberman.
