Now, I am not suggesting that this task is going to be a difficult one. What I am suggesting is that you had better be prepared for the work that lies ahead of you. Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing an unhappy master unable to tend to his dog’s needs. Nothing brings me more to tears than seeing a perfectly good dog’s life ruined and seeing it laying about miserably in its yard. Here, I’m talking about the lucky ones. Such dogs at least have a home to stay in. Read more

More fun on showmanship where Dobermans are concerned. I hope you enjoyed how the previous post turned out. This one is a little more personal. It goes all the way back in time when I was still young. Not too far back, mind you. If I’m not mistaken, I was already in high school, learning new things about many species, both flora and fauna. I was also making new discoveries about our past. Needless to say, both biology and history were two of my favourite subjects at school. Back then I thought Zeus and Apollo were two duty-bound and well-trained Dobermans, comical in the way they behaved sometimes but fearless in the way they raced after villains. Read more

When you think with what relative ease Dobermans slip into their various roles during a typical country dog show, you might be forgiven for thinking that inherent in their personalities is the happy desire to show off. On a more objective level, you might also note that perhaps the Doberman species is more outgoing and daring, raring to go and full of bravado, in comparison to say, a Mastiff which is ironically quite a sociable beast. Not all Dobermans, it depends on their owners really, yelp for no good reason, but I can’t help wondering whether they do this sometimes just for the attention. Read more

Yes, for now it may seem like a silly question. But do you know what, there’s no such thing as a silly question. It’s hard really, human nature, but haven’t we all been afraid at some stage or another in our lives to ask questions. Weren’t we afraid of appearing to be perceived as being obtuse? I know I was. This question popped into my head as I was making my first investigative forays into the Doberman breed. Initially, I always knew them to be Dobermans, pure and simple. Read more

I am going to pretend that I haven’t the foggiest notion of what a Doberman really is. I’m going to go along with new readers who are all curious to learn about what is being called one of the finest breeds of dogs to have about, just so long as the handler is consummate in the manner that he treats, rears and cares for his dog. Really though, I’m going to be reeling back to my own first discoveries on the Doberman Pinscher and sharing with you my excitement at some things about these dogs that may surprise initiates.
