Home guard dogs Dobermann




The Dobermann is a German dog known by the nickname « police dog ».

It is a watchdog par excellence, but also an excellent life companion. He will watch his master and his entire family wonderfully, will be gentle, delicate and attentive.

It does not require any particular maintenance and proves to be easy to feed and to train despite a sometimes difficult character.


Originally from Germany, the breed owes its name to its first breeder: Frédéric Louis Dobermann (1834 – 1894).

The latter, a tax collector, responsible for a rendering service and commissioned by the municipality to pick up stray dogs, was looking for a guard dog who stood out for his courage and bite. The Dobermann has thus benefited from the contributions of different breeds of « butcher’s dogs », but also of shepherds, such as that of Thuringia.

It has common ancestry with the Rottweiler. The Dobermann has met with great success with people and institutions wanting a protective and dissuasive dog.

He has established himself as a watchdog, defense, protection of herds and police. He is also an excellent companion dog.

The breed was officially recognized definitively by the FCI on January 1, 1955.

  • He is very attached to his family and children.
  • Above all, the Dobermann is very loyal to his master and will seek not only to please him, but also to defend him by putting all his determination into
  • it. Extremely attentive, concerned about the safety of his master and his family, wary of strangers, he is a courageous and infallible guard dog.


  • The Dobermann is a dog with an assertive character.
  • can be dominant towards his congeners, especially those of the same sex.
  • He must therefore be socialized quite early and educated in a firm and fair way.
  • Play and rewards are the best ways to get a balanced, respectful and happy Dobermann.
  • intelligence, his receptivity and his love for work greatly facilitate his education.

living conditions

Despite his fundamentally calm temperament and even if he has been very well educated, the Dobermann is not made to live in an apartment.

He must, of course, live indoors because of his sensitivity to cold and humidity, but he cannot be happy in a small space. A house with a large fenced garden would suit him perfectly. The Dobermann is mainly intended for a master who knows how to make himself respected and who is as much capable of giving him affection as of offering him frequent activities.
