You will find adverts to your left but PLEASE check out our home page before buying doberman puppies.

Here are a few random questions with answers generally available on the internet.  I hope it gives you food for thought but please do as much research as you possibly can before you go looking for your doberman puppy and make an impulse buy.

Trust me, you will fall in love with all doberman puppies you visit but puppies, doberman or not, should never be bought on impulse.

Doberman Puppies Cambridgeshire Cambridge, Chatteris, Ely, Huntingdon, March, Peterborough, Wisbech What are my responsibilities as a new Doberman puppy owner?

Do take your puppy to puppy playschool and obedience training classes and do your homework for these classes. Behaviors that are cute in a 15 pound puppy can be dangerous in a 75 pound doberman. Socialize your puppy with people (especially children) and other dogs frequently (after your puppy has completed its immunization). Your doberman puppy may go through a period known as “adolescent shyness” when it reaches 4-5 months of age. This period can last until the puppy is 12-18 months old. Socializing your puppy from an early age will help minimize this shyness. Expose your doberman puppy to a variety of experiences, but do so gently. You don’t want to traumatize your puppy. Be careful of heavy physical exertion directly before and after eating, especially if your Doberman is a “gulper”. Dobermans puppies can suffer from bloat. If your dog’s abdomen becomes distended and rigid and it can not seem to belch or pass gas, gastric torsion may be the problem. This is an urgent health concern and puppies, doberman and other breeds, should immediately attend the vets.

Is it fair to the dog if I don’t plan to hunt?

Dobermans are most commonly thought of as protection companions. This breed was developed with protection in mind and the Herr Louis Dobermann succeeded admirably at what he set out to do. They are also excellent for companionship, for watching over their territory or for almost anything you set your mind to. What is not fair to this breed is to ignore them and sentence them to a sedentary life with limited human companionship.  If you can find activities in your life which afford the dog the opportunity to work with and for you, you will have a happy and well-adjusted animal no matter what that activity may be. The temperament, physical and intelligence qualities of this breed allow the Doberman to excel at just about any activity you are interested in that can include a dog.

How much exercise do they need; how frequently?

Canines are most secure and content with regular daily routines.  A Doberman’s daily routine definitely must include some form of exercise preferably morning and evening.  The ideal would be time to run and play in a secure fenced area; at least a half hour in the AM and PM.  If you do not have the facilities for that, a brisk morning and evening walk or jog are essential. City dwellers will have to get more creative with providing their high energy, healthy pet a daily opportunity to blow off steam and to stay in condition, maybe a treadmill type dog jogger, or a local basketball court where a ball or frisbee can be safely chased.

What health issues should I ask about?

The Doberman unfortunately, like most breeds, has its share of genetic problems so there are many health clearances which breeders can and should provide. At a minimum ALL breeding stock should be tested and/or certified against:

  • Cardiomyopathy – to include a Holter monitor EKG and an ultrasound or sonogram done by a veterinary cardiologist. Cardio tests should be conducted annually or 3 months before a planned breeding. This type of testing should be done in Dobermans as it is better than nothing and you can know that at the time of the breeding or the time of the test whether the heart tested normal; that there were no heart murmurs or abnormally skipping heart beats.
  • Von Willebrands disease via DNA test – a blood clotting disorder
  • X-rays for hip and elbow dysplasia, certified by at or after the age of 2 years
  • Annual blood panels for thyroid, kidneys, and liver
  • Annual eye exam done by a veterinary ophthalmologist

Will protection training make my puppy doberman vicious?

Protection sport training is probably the most misunderstood training in existence. Many people think that sport protection training makes dobermans vicious and aggressive towards people. The dogs are not taught to bite the person, but to bite the fabric. In the basic training the dog or puppy is taught to play with a burlap sack, sort of a tug of war. The doberman (or puppy) is then graduated to seizing a tube of burlap/fabric and stuffing. Then the dog is graduated to a leg sleeve and then to a decoy suit or sleeve. If the decoy, the man in the suit, were to take off the suit and shake it around, the dog will grab the suit and start a tug of war, in the same manner as he/she did with the burlap sack. If the decoy were to run away holding the suit, dangling from an out stretched hand, exposing the rest of the man to the dog, the dog would grasp the suit and pay no attention to the man. The doberman is taught to grab the fabric. The decoy is friendly towards the dog and many times, in training, the dog will climb up in the decoy’s lap and lick his face, immediately after the protection session is over. Puppies, dobermans seem to be particularly keen to start young, can start in a very small way from an early age but of course a puppy needs to mature into adult before progressing.
