History

The race Dobermann it is the only one in Germany to bear the name of its first known breeder: Friederich Louis Dobermann (2 of January 1834 – 9 of June 1894). according to history, he was a tax collector, trail manager, and in addition “perrero”, with the legal right to catch all free-roaming dogs. To create the smart and trustworthy watchdog he had in mind, crossed short haired sheepdogs with Rottweilers, black and tan terrier, and German Pinschers. Chic dogs like greyhounds and Weimaraners may also have been part of their “recipe”. The “butcher dogs” played the most important role in the formation of the breed Dobermann, that in those times they were already seen as a race in itself. These dogs were of the type of the predecessors of the current Rottweiler, mixed with a type of Sheepdog black in color with rust-red markings that was common in the Thuringian region. With these mixtures, Dobermann started his hatchery in the years 70 of the century 19. In this way, he got “its race” utility dogs, home and ranches, they weren't just vigilantes, but also very attached to man.

It was used a lot as a protection dog and for the police. His wide usefulness in the Police Service gave him at that time the name of “gendarme dog”. In hunting it was used mainly for the extermination of vermin. For all the above conditions, it was obvious that the FCI-St. N° 143 / 30.09.2016 3 Dobermann was officially recognized as a police dog at the beginning of the century 20. The upbringing of Dobermann resulted in a medium dog, strong and muscular, that despite all its substance allows to recognize elegance and nobility. It is ideal as a companion dog, protection and utility.

Character and skills

It is one of the sweetest and most sensitive dogs in the world. He goes out of his way, with whom you should live in close contact. Leaving him alone in the garden would mean ruining his character. About him Dobermann a lot of gossip circulates, as for example that this dog "goes crazy" around the age of seven due to the lack of cranial capacity (one of the biggest absurdities, from the scientific point of view, never heard in cinofilia, and it is not that few are heard). Today, fortunately, there are rare cases in which there is talk of "mad" dogs or "irrepressible ferocity".

Very loving with family members and safe with children (provided they leave him alone), with strangers maintains the typical reserve of defense dogs. A balanced specimen, like all those from good hatcheries, will never behave aggressively for no reason, and it will show itself as a splendid companion dog delivered to its owner.

Start training your puppy the day you bring him home. Even at eight weeks old, He is able to absorb everything you can teach him. Don't wait until you have 6 months to start train or have to deal with more stubborn dog. If possible, Take it to a trainer when you have between 10 and 12 weeks, and socializes, socialice, socialice. However, Note that many kinds of training puppies require certain vaccinations (such as kennel cough) stay up to date, and many veterinarians recommend limited exposure to other dogs and public places until puppy vaccinations (including rabies, distemper and parvovirus) They are completed.

Regardless of what you want from a Dobermann, look for one whose parents have nice personalities and who has been well socialized since the puppy's first stage.

Observations and tips

Unselected dogs and the result of casual couplings are the only ones that can be nervous and in some cases bite. It is essential to buy the puppy in a good kennel that selects beauty and character.

Doberman health

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, just as all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, from any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee on puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the breed's health problems and the incidence with which they occur in their lines..

One of the most serious breed-related health problems in the Doberman is cardiomyopathy., which causes an increase in the size of the heart. An annual heart exam is critical to detect this condition early., and no dog with cardiomyopathy should be bred. Neither should any Dobermann without a complete cardiac exam by a veterinary cardiologist in the past year. The sad reality, However, is that a dog that gets a good exam one day can develop heart disease the next, and the puppy of two parents without heart disease can still develop it.

Another race-related condition that affects the Dobermann is cervical vertebral instability (CVI), commonly called Wobbler syndrome. It is caused by a malformation of the vertebrae in the neck that causes pressure on the spinal cord and leads to weakness and lack of coordination in the hindquarters and sometimes to complete paralysis.. Symptoms can be managed to some extent in dogs that are not severely affected, and some dogs experience some relief with surgery, but the result is not certain. Although IVC is believed to be genetic, there is no disease screening test.

The Dobermans they are also prone to the bleeding disorder known as von Willebrand disease, as well as hypoadrenocorticism or Addison's disease.

Not all of these diseases are detectable in a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict if an animal will be free of these diseases, so you need to find a reputable breeder who commit to raise healthier animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) have been examined for common defects and considered healthy for breeding. That's where health records come in..

Breeders must accept that all test results, positive or negative, are published in the CHIC database. It is not necessary for a dog to perform well or even pass evaluations to obtain a CHIC number., so the CHIC record alone is not proof of robustness or absence of disease, but all test results are published on the CHIC website and can be accessed by anyone who wants to check the health of a puppy's parents. If the breeder tells you that you do not need to do these tests because you have never had problems in your lines and your dogs have been “vet checked”, so you need to find a breeder who is more rigorous with genetic testing.

Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest, best-looking specimens., but sometimes mother nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good husbandry practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died of.

Not all visits by Dobermann to the vet they are due to a genetic problem. The Dobermans are one of the breeds with a deep chest and a tendency to swell, a condition in which the stomach expands with air. This can become the most serious condition, gastric torsion, if the stomach twists on itself, cutting off blood flow. gastric torsion, or gastric dilatation volvulus, suddenly attacks, and a dog that was fine a minute can die a few hours later. Watch for symptoms such as restlessness and gait, babeo, pale gums and lip licking, try to vomit but without bringing out anything, and signs of pain. Gastric torsion requires immediate veterinary surgery, and most dogs that have bloated once will bloat again. This means that it is prudent to opt for the procedure known as “gastric torsion”, which will prevent the stomach from twisting in the future. This procedure can also be done as a preventive measure..

Remember that after bringing a new puppy home, has the power to protect you from one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Dobermann with a proper weight is one of the easiest ways to prolong your life. Make the most of your preventive skills to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

The toilet is a piece of cake. Cepilla al Dobermann with a brush or hunting glove every week, or even run a wet towel over it. The days you need a bath, use a dog shampoo, not a human product. Rinse it well and let it stir to dry or towel dry.

The Dobermann comes off hair moderately. Regular brushing will help keep him and your house clean.. As with any dog, brushing before bathing helps remove more dead hair, leaving less hair to shed. Your vacuum cleaner will run longer if you brush your Dobermann regularly.
