Perry, what can you tell us about Pinschers?

The pinscher is a average-sized dog with a slender, muscled body. Its coat is short and is most often dark and yellowish-brown, although shade variations of cherry, blue and fawn-colored tone do happen.

Many folks acknowledge the breed by its sharp and stubby tail, although these are both the effect of surgical alterations accomplished soon after birth. The ’s innate tail is indeed very extended, and its ears envelop down and droop alongside the head.

Odd, most Doberman’s I’ve seen have no tail. What’s up with that?

The technique of removal of the dog’s tail, AKA docking, is done in order to stop the tail from interfering with the performance of a dog.

And the pointy ears?

Cropping the dog’s ears is done in an effort to improve the dog’s hearing. Cropping a dog’s ears and docking its tail has been in practice long before .

However, some countries have made these procedures illegal, and many dog shows will not allow a or docked to participate.

There has been some controversy over whether or not these procedures cause pain and discomfort to the dog, especially in the case of cropping its ears and taping them so that they grow upwards.

Interesting. What else can you tell us?

The was originally bred in the late 1800’s as a and a personal protection dog. While some dobermans are still employed as guard dogs today, the majority are simply house pets.

Although the breed is known for being both strong and intelligent, a number of factors have led to the decline of it’s use as a working dog. Notably, the breed commonly suffers from a number of health defects such as heart conditions, or weakness in the spine.

Also, while the takes well to training and was originally bred for protection work, the temperament of many is considered, by today’s standards, to be unsuitable for training as a protection or guard dog.

Ah yes, the guard dog. Are Dobermans aggressive?

The doberman’s temperament is often misunderstood to be excessively aggressive and intimidating.

Originally, they were bred specifically to have these traits. However, to assume that a doberman today is naturally aggressive would be wrong.

In fact, studies have shown that while the doberman may not be the most docile breed, it is predisposed to be substantially less aggressive than many other breeds that are not assumed to be aggressive.

Most incidents of aggression in the doberman are the result of poor communication and false assumptions of threats against its owner.
