Known as the Doberman Pinscher in US/Canada, the Dobermann is a medium sized dog that has been recorded to have been bred in the 1890’s by a German tax collector named Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, hence the name. Standing tall and seen to have a rather graceful gait, the Dobermann has perched up ears, strong legs, and is seen to stand on its toes instead of its feet pads.
Prominently known to be guard dogs, this is because the Dobermann is always alert and are quite quick, making them lethal against intruders. They are undeniably loyal and are known to be quite intelligent. While they can get quite aggressive, if trained properly, these dogs can be absolutely affectionate companions.
While owning one may be great, it does take quite a lot of attention and care, since they are a bit stubborn and not the easiest to train, mainly due to this stubbornness. However, with consistency, love and care, they will open up quickly and their intelligence allows them to learn things fast. These dogs are definitely popular pets, and with much intrigue, the right name should be given. The 70 names below can serve as inspiration for any future Dobermann dog breed owner.
