I was just curious as to why police forces do not use dobermans as police dogs. I have personally owned a doberman in the past and they are incredibly intelligent and trainable dogs. I also know that they have been used as guard dogs in the past. So, why are they not commonly used by the police? Are there any specific reasons for this? It just seems like they would make great police dogs with their agility, speed, and protective instincts.
Any insights would be appreciated! Thank you.
