The Doberman Pinscher is a breed with a stance and stature like no other. Known as a guardian breed, the Doberman Pinscher possesses confidence, strength and a keen sense of awareness all his own.

As a watchful dog, the Doberman Pinscher is a true protector of his family. He is very loyal in nature and will guard its loved ones to no end. With that said, the Doberman Pinscher is also very affectionate with his family members and is quite loving in general to those who know this pup. As a guard dog by nature, it is no wonder that the Doberman Pinscher will respond well to a training atmosphere, therefore training this breed is usually much easier than with some other breeds.
The Doberman Pinscher has a short coat of fur and this means that grooming is not too difficult a feat. The Doberman should be brushed occasionally and the pet owner may want a professional groomer to handle more extensive grooming for this pup. Since the Doberman Pinscher is a working dog and is used to being outdoors and guarding/policing, he needs continual exercise. Daily exercise, walks and open spaces to run will benefit and keep the Doberman Pinscher healthy and happy.
