Did you know - The Dobermann, initially bred by Karl Freidrich Louis Doberman, dates back to 1890. Doberman was a tax collector who wanted a dog to protect him when he went through sketchy parts of town carrying large amounts of money. Thus was born the Dobermann we know of today. Known for their athleticism, loyalty, versatility, and affection, Dobermanns are ranked the 5th smartest breed in the world. That said, good luck hiding those cookie jars!

The Dobermann is a cumulation of several breeds - German Pinscher, Rottweiler, Black Greyhound, Great Dane, Weimaraner, German Short Haired Pointer, and German Shepherd. Yup, quite an exhaustive list. But, as they say, the finest is always produced after several tests.

Built for speed and strength, Dobermanns have a lean, muscular body that thrives on a protein-rich diet. Whilst this is a fairly hardy breed, Dobermanns are known to suffer from kidney disease and certain cancers as they age.

In addition to this, Dobermans can also develop hip dysplasia, bloat, and arthritis - most of which stems from imbalanced diets and insufficient exercise. Doberman food is rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre, and fats that are essential in maintaining overall health and boosting immunity right from puppyhood. 

Brushing a Dobermann is a breeze. All they need is a quick brush once a week, and they're good to go! However, contrary to popular belief, grooming goes beyond brushing. 

Doberman grooming requires a monthly bathing, weekly ear clean, and bi-weekly teeth clean. If your Dobermann spends most of their time indoors, you might want to trim their nails once or twice a month to avoid bad posture. 

Ever heard of the term 'athletes of the dog world'? Yup, that's them. That's your little goofball right there. Dobermanns shine on the exercise front, and believe it or not, the more they exercise, the more energy they seem to have. A Dobermann who isn't exercised is almost impossible to manage at home, simply because exercise is their outlet for all that built-up energy. Dobermans need a minimum of 4 to 5 hours of physical exercise every day. And, not the walk in the park kind.

This breed thrives on activities that use both their mind and body, such as fetch, agility, jogging, scent work, hiking, and swimming. Alongside physical exercise, ensure your Dobermann receives good mental stimulation from different types of puzzles and toys - that is, if you do not wish for your home to become a Doberman chew toy. Whilst training a Doberman is easy, it isn't optional. This is a dog that needs to know the rules from A to Z, especially what is allowed and what isn't. So, make training fun by adding various challenge levels, and you'll be amazed at how smart your Dobbie is.
