The Doberman Pinscher

Someone once said that the Doberman Pinscher is the Cadillac of dogs. Most People who have owned Dobermans will agree. There are many other good breeds of dogs; Then there are Dobermans ... “The dog of dogs."

A Doberman is an affectionate animal, but his affection is noble.
He wants to be close to you, to have your hand on his head, to rest his head in your lap, or to sit
with his back to you pressing his body as close to yours as he possibly can. He owns you and he wants you to know that he enjoys this role. He is glad that you belong to him.

A Doberman is a lively dog with lots of speed, strength and agility. He can run with a horse, maneuver quickly enough to catch a rabbit, track faster than a Bloodhound, tree a mountain lion, and beat you to that favorite chair every time - if you let him. ...

A Doberman is a very gentle dog with the firmness of Gibraltar ...
He will let a baby crawl all over him. He will take his six-year old mistress walking to show her off
and guide her with mature judgment. He knows that it is well to let a six-year old have her way -
unless it is dangerous ...

A Doberman is a sensitive dog, keenly alert to your feelings and wishes. If someone visits you whom you don't like, watch the dog, for he will be watching your visitor.
After he has been with you a few years, you will find that often you don't have to speak a wish. He

The Doberman is a gentle dog. He guides the blind. One of the largest foundations specializing in guide dog work, kept records on various breeds in training. They found that the Doberman had the best training record, the best record for ones not
included as "rejects," and the best record for continued devotion.

The Doberman is an obedient dog.
Today, those who want a great performing dog in obedience trial work usually turn to Dobermans.
As one top professional trainer and exhibitor says, "In obedience, a top working Doberman can be
topped only by another Doberman."
No other breed can compete for cleanliness, speed, and
performance."

The Doberman is a magnificently beautiful animal. He is a square dog with ample body. He has a
sleek dry coat with precise clean markings; a long, arched neck for balance and nobility; a dark eye,
almond in shape and set fairly deep for appearance only. He is a dog with "built in beauty." There is
no such thing as an ugly Doberman. Some are closer to perfection than others, that's all.

The Doberman in pose is a noble and lovely thing, but the most thrilling part of a Doberman's beauty
is in action. He is an animal so natural you would think that evolution has been aimed at him, and yet the precise control of selected breeding of more than 60 years is what has crystallized his form and motion ...
