Hey there! I decided a few months ago that I am ready to get a puppy and have been researching breeds for quite a while. Initially I was considering a great dane because I always had them growing up & absolutely love the breed, but I really think a doberman is perfectly suited for me! I love how affectionate, loyal, and intelligent they are. I definitely want a dog who will protect me as I go on a lot of hikes and runs alone. My only concern is the fact that my roommates and I are college-aged, so we like to have get-togethers at our house and can have a lot of people and other dogs coming through our house at times. I'd like to be able to bring her over to my friends' houses as well and pretty much everywhere I go. Anyways, would this be too much for a doberman to handle? I know they can be territorial, or would this be a non-issue with proper socialization and training? She would be extensively socialized as a puppy, and I am very confident and experienced in training and handling large dogs. I'd love to hear any feedback! Cheers!
