Doberman is the most common type of pet dog, and the Doberman breed is one of the most common pet dogs and is smart, energetic, and loyal.
Dobermans were used in guard cars or police dogs. Doberman dogs are considered one of the most distinctive breeds because of the media's interest in them and their actual role in society, and Doberman dogs are raised to become more vibrant and active to fit to be family companions.
- The Look of the Doberman Dog
The Dobermans are medium-sized dogs, have short furs, square builds, and are sporty, compact, and fast. The nature of the Doberman dogs is vigilance and pride, obedience and determination, and the appearance of male Doberman dogs is strong and noble, while females have a slimmer structure.
- The size of the Doberman dogs
Doberman dogs are characterized by their average size, with male dogs often ranging in length from 26 to 28 inches (66 to 72 cm), while females are between 24 and 26 inches (61 and 68 cm) long. The body of the Doberman dogs is square in shape: its height is equal to its length to the shoulders. The length of his head, neck, and legs is suitable for his body size, and there are no specific criteria for his weight.
The size of a Doberman must be proportional to its strength, agility, and carrying, and the dog usually weighs between 75 and 100 pounds (34 and 45 kg), while females weigh between 60 and 90 pounds (27 and 41 kg).
The color of the Doberman dog is black and blue, and there are two types of Doberman-colored genes: one black (B) and the other d.
- There are also nine possible combinations of Doberman dogs:
These combinations produce four different colors: black, red, blue, and light brown, which produces the most common traditional colors when the genes share at least a dominant characteristic (e.g. BBDD, BBDD, or BbDd).
- Doberman's tail
Normally, the tail of a Doberman is fairly long, but individual dogs have a rather long tail due to surgical amputation of the tail shortly after birth.
- Doberman ear
Doberman dog ear is natural and is short most of the time as a lot of other breeds. This is related to the type of mating functionally, and in some countries, part of the ear is amputated to be straight.
- The mood of the Doberman dog
Some believe that Doberman dogs are fierce and aggressive, so they are raised to be a personal protection dog, and the dog must be large and terrifying and can defend its owner.
He must also be obedient and no one should be attacked unless he is ordered to do so, and these qualities are important for the dog to be a personal guard dog or a war dog or a police dog.
But so he can't be a perfect companion. More recently, Doberman's short body, size, and intelligence have helped to be a pet dog, and these dogs are loyal, despite the mistaken belief that they are aggressive.
They can be taught to respect and protect their owners easily, so they are excellent guard dogs that protect the owners who love them.
Therefore, dogs in North America are quieter than others in Europe because of the different breeding strategies used in this.
- The intelligence of the Doberman dog
Intelligence incorporates a range of mental potential such as: dog's style of problem-solving, learning and communication, laboratory experiments, and expert assessments have proven that Doberman strains are the highest strains of dogs.
- Aggressiveness in Doberman dogs
Some research has been conducted on whether different breeding leads to aggression and other studies on the personality of dogs.
The violence was divided into four categories:
Aggression targeting strangers, aggression targeting the owner, aggression targeting exotic dogs, and competition with other dogs.
These studies have resulted in the highest violent Doberman against strangers (after the German dog, Chihuahua), the middle place in violence against dogs and competition with them, and very low in violence against the owner. Doberman dogs are ranked low in human aggression. Studies have said that aggression is caused by genes.
Despite the belief that Doberman dogs are very aggressive, the reason for this is the strength of the dog and its size and aggressive behavior towards strangers.
The CDC has also shown that the dog does not cause death like other dog breeds, such as pitbull, German shepherd dog, Rottweiler, Husky, Wolf, and Alaska. Dog bites also depend on the extent of responsibility that dog owners exercise.
