Do you think your Doberman knows your normal routines and actions? How well do they observe you and react to your habits?
Yes, when he hears the alarm, he knows im up to let him out to pee
Does your Doberman know the difference between a workday and a non-work day? Do they act or behave differently to you?
Yes, non work days he will whine and stare at me knowing that there is an extra long walk and playtime ahead of him. On work days he is very calm, and will give me those big puppy eyes.
By your routine action around the home, do they react to situations which are out of your routine? (Enter/exit the same door, making loud noises, etc)
Yes, I live in a basement apartment of a large house, so when the family upstairs is walking around and talking, he is OK. He can tell the difference of a family members footsteps to a new friend he has not met, or if there is too much running around.
How do they react to situations which are not normal around the home? (bark, go investigate, act tough, etc)
He will bark, and MUST see what is going on, or he will whine and look at me
Does your Doberman know what is supposed to be outside around your home? How do they react to things not supposed to be there?
Yes. But he only reacts if a person is trying to get into the yard or over the fence. Anyone can do anything and make any sound around the house or property and he will not bat an eye.
Never look down on someone, unless you are helping them up
