Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I live in an apartment, does that mean a Doberman is not for me?
A: No this does not mean a Doberman is not for you, but it does mean much more of a commitment on your part to insure the dog gets the exercise he will need to be healthy and happy.
Q: Will Dobermans turn on their owners?
A: No. Based on the experience of many breeders, including those breeders who have been doing this business for as long as 30 plus years, reported not one of them had ever been bitten by one of their dogs.
Q: Where did Doberman breed originate?
The Doberman Pinscher breed was developed in Germany by Friedrick Louis Dobermann in the early 1890′s. ‘Pinscher’ was added to the name which translates to ‘Terrier’ in German.
The Doberman was created from several breeds including the Rottweiler, Thueringian Shepherd, German Pinscher, and Great Dane. After Friedrick Louis Dobermann’s death other breeders carried on the development of the breed and over time it has been refined.
