Chris and Kevin

Hello eveyone!! My name is Chris and I have recently purchased my first Doberman. Kevin is right at 6.5 weeks now so he is still with the breeder. I cant wait to get him home!! Kevin is going to be my service dog when he's a bit older, so I am really looking forward to all the training he and I will be doing. I've got a ton of questions for you guys that I will be asking over time. Im lurked the forum for awhile and the information that I think you all as real people will be able lend will be helpful where books/videos cant really put in the human factor to ownership.

My boxers, Bill and Steve, are male and female respectively. Bill is a super laid back, very mellow guy with more tolerance than I have ever seen before in a dog. Super sweet with other dogs. Steve is my high energy crack head girl. She is a good dog though and loves people and other animals.

Im finding a ton of information on integration tactics for the first day. Of course like anything else though, there is conflicting information out there.

It is not recommended to have a male doberman with any other male dog in the household, no matter how laid back the other male(s) are. I would seriously consider a female puppy instead. Do a search here on "male aggression" and you will see countless threads on the topic.

Admittedly I have no experience in owning a doberman, but I do have experience with dogs. Ill definitely look into the male/male aggression issue but honestly, its too late to do anything about. Everything has been put into play for the male and the rest of the litter has been sold. I chose a male for their size over females since I need help with balance. Since my dogs are well socialized and the puppy is coming to me at 8-10 weeks, he will grow up with my two and sicne he will be a service dog, he will be going EVERYWHERE with me to ensure the highest level of socialization with humans and dogs. Since Kevin will be with me 24/7 I will be able to intervene if anything arises, but I do not foresee a situation where that would be necessary. Im not discrediting what youre saying at all and as I said, Ill definitely do more research on it.

The thing is, it's not really something you can prevent or manage no matter how much socialization you do. It is an unfortunate negative characteristic bred into dobermans that you can't avoid. It's almost instinctual.

What's the worst that could happen? Likely it will be fine for a few years then all of the sudden your male doberman attacks your boxer with hardly a warning. One or both dogs could end up seriously injured or killed and they will have to be kept in separate areas of your house or with one of them crated at all times as you rotate between who's loose and who isn't. Not a happy life for either dog.


It's not too late to pick a different sex of puppy or a different breeder.

I agree.

I hate to be a kill joy, but I would seriously questions the ethics of a breeder that was willing to place a male Doberman in a house with a male Boxer. Some reputable breeders will allow this, but only to very experienced Dobermans homes that are fully prepared to crate and rotate as the Doberman hits maturity.
