Doberman Pinscher Dogs 101 – Dobie Facts


Intelligent, alert, and tenaciously loyal
companions, the Doberman Pinscher is driven, strong, and sometimes stubborn. When properly trained he can be an excellent
family dog, although he’s certainly not for novice owners. Hi, welcome to Animal Facts. Today, we investigate the incredibly versatile
and fun-loving Doberman Pinscher. Get ready for Dogs 101. Let’s get started. But before we start, take a moment to like
and subscribe for more fun, fauna facts. 10. The Doberman is a fairly new dog breed, originating
in Germany in the early 1880s. Louis Dobermann was a tax collector, who would
sometimes work as a police officer, night guard, and dog catcher. Herr Dobermann often found himself traveling
with bags of money through dangerous parts of town at late hours. With his access to the pound, he bred a dog
that is lean and muscular, a medium sized dog that is refined but intimidating. The American Kennel Club recognized the Doberman
breed in 1908 as a working dog. Let us know your favorite facts about Dobermans
below. 9. Herr Dobermann did not take many notes on
his breeding process, so no one is exactly sure what breeds went into making the Doberman. However, some possible dogs believed to be
in the mix include the Rottweiler, German Shorthaired Pointer, Weimaraner, Manchester
Terrier, Beauceron, Great Dane, Black and Tan Terrier, and Greyhound. 8. During World War II, Dobermans served the
U.S. Marine Corps in their war dogs program. The dogs were used throughout the South Pacific
to lead patrols through the hot dense jungle, to guard troops at night while they slept,
and to give warnings of hidden enemy combatants waiting to carry out an ambush. Many of the dogs survived to return home to
civilian families, but others made the ultimate sacrifice and are buried in the National War
Dog Cemetery at Naval Base Guam. 7. Dobermans are extremely athletic and intelligent
dogs, so no task is out of their league. And that includes the job of a lap dog, even
if you’re less enthused about it than he is. Dobies have been used for a variety of jobs
and sports including police work, scent tracking, coursing, diving, search and rescue, therapy,
and guiding the blind. 6. Dobermans are the fifth smartest breed and
easily trained. That intelligence comes at a price to their
human friends. Dobermans are known for outsmarting their
trainers and getting easily bored. And, Dobermans are famous for ignoring their
handlers if they do not want to do what they are being asked. What breeds would you like to see us cover? Comment your favorite dog breed below. 5. Dobermans are an a-list breed and are popular
among the elite. Celebrities that have called the Doberman
Pinscher “friend” include John F. Kennedy, Beatrice Arthur, Bela Lugosi, Victoria Principal,
Nicolas Cage and James T. Kirk… I mean William Shatner. 4. Speaking of stars, the Doberman is a Film
Star. In the 1972’s a film called, The Doberman
Gang was made. It’s a film about “six savage Dobes with
a thirst for cold cash that leaves banks bone dry.” two sequels were made of the film. 3. Doberman dogs have been a part of Drill Teams. The Doberman Drill Team toured the United
States for 30 years, performing at football game half-time shows and visiting hospitals. Started by Rosalie Alvarez, the drill team
demonstrated the Dobermans’ agility, intelligence, and obedience over a series of challenging
obstacles. The Doberman Pinscher Club of America gave
Alvarez its Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006. 2. Decades of breeding has made the Doberman
gentler. The first Dobermans were bred to be fierce
and only the toughest dogs were selected to carry on the breed. Today, however, breeders are selecting a more
loving group of dogs. And, despite their larger size, Dobermans
prefer living inside the home and want to be involved in what the family is doing. They need lots of exercise. If they are not exercised, they are more likely
to become irritable or even aggressive. They can adjust well to apartment living if
exercised daily. 1. Although Dobies have a softer personality
today, all dogs are different and a lot of their temperament is dependent on proper training. These dogs can be great with families and
children, but only when correctly trained and socialized. Not for novice owners, Dobermans must be treated
with respect and never mishandled. Well, there ya have it, ten fascinating facts
about the Doberman Pinscher. What an amazing dog. We surely could have gone on and on about
him, but for now, we’re out of time. So, before ya go, take a moment to like and
subscribe for more fun fauna facts. And as always, catch ya next time.

  15. Dobies are the absolute best hands down!
    Okay, I'm a bit prejudges, one saved my life during a home invasion, she gave me enough time to get to my gun before that tweeker could get to me. She survived he didn't. I was able to put two shots in his chest before that subhuman stabbed my Sabrina. She did suffer some wounds and required stitches but nothing vital was injured. Unfortunately Sabrina wound up with cancer 5 years later and passed on. Sabrina was my first Dobie, since then I've had the privilege to be adopted by 4 more Dobies. I may own another dog, but I will always have a Doberman as my first choice as a protector of my home.
