About Doberman Pinschers
The Doberman is affectionate towards children, intelligent, extremely loyal and obedient (with postive training) towards it's family, it can also generally be easily exited around small or young kids.
Temperament of the Doberman Pinscher:
The nature of the Doberman is a watchdog, so it can be wary of strange or new people. The Doberman will suit someone who ideally has experience with owning other dominant protective breeds (like the German Shepherd for example). The Doberman will generally respond much better to kindness than harsh treatment, and will respect and obey you much more in return.
As with all dogs, socialisation and obedience training is very important to start from an early age. This breed is quite energetic and therefor needs plenty of excercise.
Apparently, the doberman has been known to perform well as a Police dog, a Guard dog, and an Army dog. (and of course as a family pet!).
