If you will not always be there, it is not a good idea to have any. Doberman's are social dogs, and required human companionship. Contrary to movies, they are not good for being left alone with the sole purpose of property protection.

Aside from what everyone else has said, I'd be worried about littermate syndrome if you get two at the same time

I personally think that leaving any breed of Dog , unattended for a day or days , is ill responsible on the owners part . But that just me thinking out loud here .

Under the circumstances you describe it's better for you to have no dogs.

I agree that it's best to not have a dog period in scenario you describe. However, if you feel you absolutely must have one, then a livestock guardian breed would be a far better choice than a Doberman.

Dobermans were bred to be personal protection dogs, not property guard dogs. They are NOT an outside breed as with their single coat do not do well in extremes of temperature - hot or cold. They would suffer a lot being away from people as they are very attached to their owners. Getting two at a time guarantees that they will bond to each other and not to their owner - one will normally become very dominant over the other and often make their life a misery by the time they mature. Same sex will often become aggressive to each other by maturity - which could result in the death of one or both dogs.
Dogs need to be fed every day - unlike cats which can ration a bowl of food for a couple of days.... dogs tend not to do well when free fed. So if you are gone for more than 8 hours a day with no one to care for the dogs (of any breed), it is best not to have any dogs. A security system would be best.
