Puppy classes are also an excellent way to socialize your puppy.
Doberman Pinscher Breed history
Louis Dobermann was a dog breeder and tax collector in 19th century Germany who created the predecessor to the Doberman Pinschers we have today.
During that time, tax collectors faced the real danger of being robbed by bandits. In addition, tax collectors were often received with hostility.
In search of a protective companion, Louis began breeding to create a dog that could accompany him when collecting taxes. The breed that Louis created was a predecessor to our modern-day Doberman Pinscher.
When Louis died in 1894, there was no record of the dogs he had used to create the Doberman. It is supposed that Rottweiler, German Pinscher, and Black and Tan Terrier were some of the breeds that Louis used.
German breeders continued Louis’s work. They wanted to create a “super dog”. Choosing only the strongest, smartest, and toughest dogs to breed, the result was temperaments that tended toward stubbornness and aggression.
A man named Otto Goeller continued breeding the Doberman into a more people-friendly breed. In 1900, the Doberman Pinscher was registered with the German Kennel Club.
These brave, loyal dogs have been used as police and military dogs including World War ll and as rescue dogs when the World Trade Center collapsed.
A National War Dog Cemetery in Guam honors the many Doberman Pinschers who served in the Second Battle of Guam in 1944.
Today, the Doberman Pinschers rank number seventeenth out of all breeds registered with AKC.

Doberman Pinscher body features
Doberman Pinschers have a powerful yet sleek figure. They have a wedge-shaped head with ears that are typically cropped but can also be left to hang down on either side of their face.
They have short, smooth coats. Doberman Pinschers coats are a combination of two colors, with the one color always being rust. They can be black, blue, red, or fawn – paired with rust markings
grooming Your Doberman Pinscher Puppy
Doberman Pinschers have sleek, smooth coats that lay close to their skin. A gentle brushing a few times a week will be sufficient for this breed.
They are naturally clean dogs and don’t need frequent bathing.
Be sure to regularly check your Doberman’s ears for ear infections. Ask your vet to show you how to clean your puppy’s ears.
Your Doberman Pinscher will also need its nails trimmed and teeth brushed regularly.
Keeping Your Doberman Pinscher Puppy Healthy
Doberman Pinschers are generally a healthy breed, but it’s essential for any dog owner to be aware of conditions that may affect their dog.
Bloat, also called gastric dilatation-volvulus or gastric torsion, can affect any large breed dog and is a life-threatening condition.
Bloat is when the stomach becomes twisted, and the gases in the stomach are unable to escape. The pressure from these gases affects the blood flow to the heart, and it can be fatal.
To prevent bloat:
- Avoid feeding your dog right before or after heavy exercise.
- Feed them a few smaller meals a day instead of one large meal to prevent bloat.
- Learn to recognize the symptoms of bloat so you can take action immediately.
Some owners choose to have surgery done to tack their dog’s stomach in place and prevent it from twisting.
Hip and Elbow Dysplasia
Like all dog breeds, they are at risk for hip and elbow dysplasia, two of the most common health issues in dogs.
Hip and elbow dysplasia occurs when the thigh bone doesn’t fit snugly into the hip and can result in limping, lameness, or arthritis if it’s not addressed. Hip and elbow dysplasia can be genetic, or it can be caused by environmental factors such as overeating or injuries.
Here are some ways to prevent hip dysplasia in your puppy:
- Ask the breeder for an OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) Hip Clearance. Dogs with hip dysplasia shouldn’t be bred.
- Talk to your vet about the right food for your puppy and stick to the correct amount to prevent unhealthy growth.
- Keep your puppy from running or jumping excessively on hard surfaces and from standing on their hind legs.
Other conditions that may affect Doberman Pinschers include:
- Dilated cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart)
- Von Willebrand’s disease (a clotting disorder)
- Progressive retinal atrophy (degenerative eye disease)
- Albinism (lack of pigmentation)
- Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
Protecting Your Doberman Pinscher from Obesity
You can protect your dog from one of the most common health problems: obesity. One of the best ways to extend your dog’s life is by feeding them the correct amount of food and giving them adequate exercise.
Typical Doberman Pinscher Allergens
First of all, what causes allergies?
Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the fur that dogs shed.
Doberman Pinschers are moderate shedders and are not considered an allergen-friendly breed. Allergens can be lowered with regular brushing and bathing.
If you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your health provider before adopting a puppy.
