First time Dobe owners, looking back- right breed choice?

I'm just curious to hear your honest opinions. Did this breed turn out to be the right breed for you? Will you continue to keep dobes in your household? Or will your future dogs be a different breed?

Personally, I went through a crisis when Roz was about a year old. Her personality was so different than I was expecting. No one told me how eccentric these dogs can be, and how needy. I had always heard the term "velcro" dog but I thought that just meant following you around. Not that her nose would constantly be poking me and she would smother me in my sleep because she didn't think she could get close enough and needed her face to be pressed over mine. And the whining.. 5 minutes go by, and if I don't pay attention to her, she just stares at me and whistles with her nose until I respond to her.

After I got over this panic attack, I realized that I wouldn't have chosen any other dog. Although she has annoying tendencies for my very independent and "stay out of my personal bubble" attitude... I realize that was exactly what I needed. She has helped me grow as a person to accept love and affection even when I was uncomfortable with it. Now, if she is ever away (my parents tend to kidnap her because they love her more than me LOL), I feel like I am missing an apendage and I feel sad without her. I'm glad that I went into this without actually knowing everything about their personalities because I feel that if I did, I wouldn't have adopted her. She has been such a blessing to my life, and somedays she is the only reason I get up. She is like a cheer leader for my life.

Care to share your experiences about when you first brought a dobe into your life?

even though we had crap luck with our first boy, i would absolutely have another dobe. this was my first dog, and we got the PERFECT dog on the first try. beautiful, intelligent, silly, and a fantastic sense of humor to boot. he never pouted, he never pitched a fit unless it was directly related to crate training. he wouldn't even whimper or whine for food.

I love my Dobe, but the husband picked the breed. He liked the way they looked and fell in love with our friends dobermans. He liked the velcro aspect as well.

I don't know if I'll have another doberman, not because I dislike the breed but more because I just don't know what is 10 years down the road and the dobe is quite young still.

I just tend to pick up shelter dogs or dogs that literally wander up to my parents or friends houses etc...., so who knows. Before anyone thinks bad of me for keeping strays, my parents live at the intersection of two dirt roads in the country it's a dumping ground for animals.

I do know that I am not cursing the breed like I cursed the dachshund, I WILL NEVER have another dachshund!

Thanks for your response! I love shelter dogs as well, and if you could find a doberman in a shelter around here that wasn't emotionally scarred somehow, that would have totally been my preferred way of acquiring a dobe. I'm totally for rescues. I've rescued ALL of my other animals; Roz was the only one I went to a breeder for. They always seem to much more grateful when from a shelter.

Great topic! I'm a first time doberman owner, and I have realized just how different the breed is from any other. I've had my moments of wondering if I could handle my doberman all of the time, but I've become completely fascinated by the breed. Now that I've gone doberman, I will never go back.

I agree with you and realize just how much of a "velcro" dobe they are. If Jasmine had it her way, she would be a lap dog all of the time. I'm even having to type this reply at the moment with one arm on top of her head.

Jasmine is protective, yes, but like many dobermans, I assume, they can sense when there is a threat and when there is not. They really are amazing animals and very loving. Jasmine is 11 months old, and she definitely wears me out on a daily basis, but it's completely worth it. I could see where the breed could be too much for some people, but I know I've found a good fit!

Great comment! Love to hear stories like this I'm sure your Jasmine is a doll! My families doberman (they had to part ways with her when I was 2) was named Jasmine as well.. just spelled with z's instead.

Lots of people on here have rescues, myself included. I don't know of anyone here who looks down on us or our dogs.

Not a first time owner but I did stray to the dark side and have a GSD specifically for sport. Having said 'never again!' am waiting for my new Dobe puppy to be ready. This breed is amazing and I am sure there will be times I will consider my sanity but my life just feels incomplete without a Doberman in it.

Oh goodness, I did not imply by any means that owning a rescue dobe is bad. In fact I implied the exact opposite. I said I would have preferred to rescue a dobe, but you can't find them here in portland. The 1 or 2 times a year that you do see them, they have been beaten, abused, or used in dog fighting.. so they are not dogs that -I personally- have the patience for. If someone who gets to stay home all day (work at home, retired, ect) then I'm all for rescuing those behavioral issue dogs and getting them back to a happy dog and a lovely member of the household.

I'm only two weeks into Doberman ownership. I will say that Skoll is absolutely nothing like any of the other dogs I've had experience with and I'm not sure if I like that yet. I still think GSDs are my heart dog and I'm not sure if I'd want another Doberman, but hey I've got quite a few years to adjust before I look into a second dog

I am a two time Dobie owner. My second is nearly 4 months old. After my first Dobie Rex, I was hooked and I will always have a Dobermann. The temperament is fantastic. I love the "velcro".

They are a very loving and devoted animal. Who could ask for more.

Toby is my first Dobe.

Despite doing what I considered to be loads of research I have come to realise I was totally ill prepared to own him.
I thought I knew about dogs and in truth thought a Dobe couldnt be so different to all the other breeds I have owned.
WRONG!
He is so unlike it shines out like a beacon from my mountain top I do swear.
He is both intelligent and stupid, brave and cowardly, whinsome and obnoxious, bullheaded when he wants to be and acute in the blink of an eye.
I have to say Toby is not so much of a cuddle bug, not like some of you guys have, but he is loving in his own way. Topped off with being fiercely protective of both me and mine, (that includes the house) and even though he is fear reactive I believe he is the best dog in the world.

If I am fit enough when I am older (Toby requires quite a bit of exercise and seeing as I live in a mountainous region one has to be fit to walk around here) I will consider another Dobe.

I will not make the mistake of getting a male if I have another male in the house ever again and I will make sure my next Dobe is socialised if I have to tie folk up and make them talk to him and give him attention. (the general populace in these parts just wouldn't talk to him even when he was a cute bundle of fluff aged 7 weeks).

One thing is for sure, these dogs are not for everyone and do require a lot of attention, love and understanding. Bit like those of us who own them, lol!

Would not have it any other way!

Next time research will be done instead of just getting a puppy off of craigslist, though I do not regret doing that either.

Jones is my first dog and I couldn't have asked for a better first dog. There will probably never be a doberman that tops Jones and his personality, he has claimed my heart. He is my heart dog. I will always probably have a doberman, I may have something else in the house as well, but a Doberman will always be #1 to me

I never regretted it. The velcro part didn't bother me, because I was used to having dogs at my side 24/7. I came from having the older service dog pups for training and socialization before I adopted my first Dobe, so I was used to having a dog next to me all the time. If anything, NOT being able to take my Doberman with me everywhere I went was a hard adjustment. I was too used to putting a leash and harness on and walking out the door with whatever dog I was training at the time.

They are needy though. Very, very needy. I didn't realize this was a whiny breed until I got Griffin. Logan, my first Dobe, was abnormally quiet for the breed and I learned really quickly not to brag on how calm and quiet my Doberman was after I adopted Griff. Logan, I think, got smacked around by his first home every time he made noise. He learned to be quiet. Griff, not so much. He's the second dog I've had that would talk to me and hold conversations. His range of vocalizations goes from a squeaky whine to something that sounds exactly like a Wookie. I should've named him Chewbacca.

I'll also probably always have a Doberman. I really like working line GSDs and Dutchies, and will probably have one of them. But after doing a lot of thinking about what life would be like without a Doberman in the house, I'm just not sure I ever want to be Dobe-less anymore. There was definitely a time or two over the past couple of years where I thought that I wanted another breed. But after going through a rough patch in my own life over the past month or so, and having Griffin just intuitively understand something was up.... yeah, I think I always need a Doberman.

They really do 'get' their humans. And that mix of wanting to be involved, the intelligence, the sense of humor, the protectiveness, heck, even the whining. I love my Dobes.

Remy is a few firsts for me...

1st Doberman
1st Puppy
1st Purchased dog from a breeder

She is 8 months old and I have had her since she was 8 weeks. I love her to death, but I am not sure I would go dobe again. I battle a couple of things - guilt over not rescuing a mutt (which I always had), difficulty managing a high drive pup with two high drive young kids (she has growled and snapped in the past, once breaking skin), playing really really rough with family & friend's dogs to the point that they (the friends, not the dogs) are pretty intimidated by her.

I can manage her and enjoy training her, she adores me, but I think it's just a lot more than I was expecting.

Of course, that could be mostly the puppyness of it all. Ask me after I've had her well into adulthood and I may be singing a different tune all together! I can say for a certainty I will never do PUPPY again - no matter breed.

Roz is my first dog and my first Dobe. When I lived at home, growing up, we had a Golden Retriever, a Lab, and a Dalmation. Roz is amazing. I love her very much and I will probably always have a Dobe.

The whole velcro thing doesn't bother me, I was prepared for that thanks to this website. And thankfully, I found this site and did research so I went to a good breeder. I think I'd like to rescue my next Dobe. The thing that took me most by surprised is how little Roz cares about OTHER people. She loves me, she loves my family, and she loves my close friends. Her little nub wiggles when she sees us and she greets us eagerly and will velcro by any one of my close circle if I'm not around. She doesn't care about strangers. She will look at them as we walk by, and she will let them pet her, and she sort of acknowledges them, but people are constantly walking away sheepishly after approaching Roz and me on a walk and going into full baby talk expecting to be eagerly greeted, and Roz just looks at them, puts her head out for a pet, and waits. If they don't pet her, she's just as fine with that as if they do. It seems like people just expect dogs to be eager for pets and to beg for more if they stop petting her. She doesn't. If I (or one of my close friends) is petting her and we stop, you can expect she will let out a whine, she will paw at us, or she will fake yawn/snap her mouth while ALMOST whining, until we pet her more. Strangers, no interest. I find myself apologizing to strangers when Roz gets her pet and then is more interested in a moving tree branch than in them, but at the same time, I'm not going to try and train her to be different. I have come to love this trait. It leaves no doubt in my mind who is the greatest in Roz's eyes, and I like holding the top spot in her world. She's so important to me.

tl;dr - I would get another Dobe. They're awesome.

Rambo is our first Dobe. When my husband and I got married we had decided a Doberman would be the dog we would get as a companion for our GSD. On our honeymoon we found a Dobe blanket and everything lol. Then Maggie was brought into the clinic by her owner trying to dump her off. I took her home and she never left. She's my SOs best buddy.
My GSD is 10.5 yrs old and has some health issues. We wanted to integrate another dog that would adjust to the family and our life as well as learn from Rain before he was gone. I started looking and literally stumbled on a picture of Rambo at a rescue. I called my husband and he said go meet him and see what he's like, but don't bring him home. Well...I brought him home.
As far as surprises and second thoughts. We have also had the 'why did we do this' and 'is something wrong with him?' But we are soon reassured by something sweet that he does. My husband always teases me when Rambo is curled on my lap or napping with me about 'I don't think he's attached yet'. Velcro was something I didn't understand the extent of when it came to Dobermans. They are truly attached and pleasers. Rambo is also an extreme conversationalist. He is also a floor scratcher when he really gets going. Squeaking, whistling, talking, and digging at the floor like a bull. Doors are never allowed to be shut and there should never be anything more interesting than them. Rambo is also a drooling machine. He blows bubbles when waiting for food, he's also the nastiest when he drinks and I have woken up with a wet spot on me after napping with his head on me. Will I own a Dobe again? Yes. Possibly not at the same time or right after Rambo passes away but later yes I will.

Red is our first dog and Doberman, and will probably be our last - not because I don't like the breed, but because I just won't have the time and energy to put into training another dog like him. This breed has SO much energy - I think that's the biggest thing. He needs to be constantly entertained.

We won't be getting another dog at all after we have this baby and something happens to Red. Having a dog is great, but I wouldn't be able to put the time into training like I did with Red and I wouldn't have it any other way. Plus Red is perfect in my eyes and I would compare him to any other dog for the rest of my life.

Also being tied down to the house or having to kennel when we go away. We'll probably stick to our cats in the future, or at least until I have a lot of free time left to spend with another dog, which won't be for a very very long time.

It was actually quite sad when I got chase roughly three years ago. He was about 2 years old when I got him. I would read everyone's posts and see all these pictures of dobes being dobes, I would look at chase and he would never do any of it.

He was kept in a back yard as a guard dog, then locked in a garage during winter months. He was never encouraged to show his personality, and would be disciplined for licking or leaning up on someone. The guy said 'yeah, he is. Great dog, Never tries to lick us.'

Fast forward two years (after training and socializing) I got a glimpse of what a dobe should be like. I got a lick on the hand, a hesitant lean on the legs, he even began following me around. Fast forward another year, he feels comfortable enough to unleash the manic kisses on the face, sitting on my lap, sleeping by my side, and to even roll onto his back.

Would I get another dobe? Yes

Just wanted to add...

I do not consider my home complete without a dog, now I will always own a JRT, simply because I live in an area where there are rats etc and I need one for vermin control.

I seriously am thinking about another dog/s to add to the family. At the moment I am working on a guy with 2 girlies (an English Bulldog and a Lab/Pointer Hunting Dog who doesnt hunt, lol) with regards giving them to me.

My son wants a Rottie if we don't get the girls as I have taken to calling them.

Beyond that, I am looking at girl Dobes, but this time from a reputable breeder, trouble is, none exist here in Spain so I am going to have to import her from heaven only knows where and that is going to add considerably to the cost. (best get saving I reckon).

Ammo is our 3rd dobie and Cadence our 4th. My husband and I are hooked on the breed and will always have dobermans in our life. The question is how many? lol

I'm on my second doberman and just recently got an Aussie. I've actually thought a lot about this topic over the last year as we contemplated whether to get another Dobe or not, and now having a non-Dobe and observing the differences between our current Dobe and Aussie puppy.

We originally did a lot of breed research before my husband and I decided to get a Doberman for our first dog together. We got incredibly lucky with our first Dobe, who was a 14 month old breeder re-home who had a really tough start to life. Harvey turned out to be the sweetest, loveliest boy. He was pretty low drive though and on the independent side, and very laid back. He was such a wonderful family dog and was an awesome introduction to the breed and is sorely missed.

When we were looking to get a 2nd dog, we knew we wanted another Dobe but I wanted something a bit higher drive to be able to do performance sports with. Lucy is a very sweet girl, incredibly cuddly and velcro which I love. But she is also pretty willful at times and not as biddable as I had hoped for. However, she is my first competition dog and there are things I probably could have done differently when she was a puppy to possibly influence her drive and work ethic. She's been such a great addition to our family though and I am learning so much from her.

When we started contemplating getting a third dog, we thought long and hard again about what breed and did a ton of research again. I seriously vascillated between Doberman, Vizsla and Australian Shepherd. I knew I wanted another performance prospect but something more eager to please. I liked Lucy's size (she is on the smaller end of the standard) and just easier to manage vs a larger male Dobe. I was also very worried about having a male Dobe and having issues w/ same sex aggression with our friend's dogs. I don't like the fact that people are always so intimidated by Dobes and the threat of BSL is really unfortunate. I absolutely love Vizsla's but we were concerned that our current space would not be adequate for one and that the exercise requirements would be even higher than a Dobe or Aussie. We ultimately decided to get an Aussie this time. I like that they are also pretty velcro but are less needy than Dobes. They are also pretty tough and I think a good match for our Dobe who is pretty rough and tumble. I also like that they are a medium size breed but smaller than our Doberman. And hopefully this dog will be far more eager to please and have a better work ethic.

What I have noticed about our Aussie is she has been a lot easier than our Dobe was at this age. She's smart as a whip and learns very quickly. She doesn't mind being out in the rain or cold, and in fact she often times prefers outside to inside because she gets so warm. I laugh when the Aussie puppy wants to lay outside on the cold ground even when it's raining and think about how hard it is to get my Dobergirl to pee in the rain. She is cuddly for short periods of time until she gets too hot, then she wants lay on the wood floor. I'm really happy with the Dobe/Aussie breed combination so far, although puppy is only just approaching 4 months old so time will tell. But when my Dobergirl curls up in my lap and cuddles up in her sweet way, it makes me realize that we will probably always have a Dobe in our life. I really do love this breed.
