I have been doing some research on dog breeds and I came across the Doberman. I am considering getting one as my family pet, but I wanted to get some opinions from people who own or have had experience with this breed.
I am looking for a loyal, protective dog that also makes a good companion for my family. However, I have read that Dobermans can be high-energy and require a lot of exercise and attention. I work from home, so I should be able to give them the attention they need, but I want to make sure I am making the right decision before bringing a Doberman into my home.
I am also concerned about their reputation for being aggressive towards strangers. Can Dobermans be trained to be socialized and friendly towards strangers?
Overall, I just want to know if a Doberman would be a good fit for my family and lifestyle. Any advice or experiences you can share would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
