Doberman should be trained by one person. But first, he himself needs to take a training course. Then the owner learns with the dog, and only after that can other household members be connected to the Doberman training.
Doberman will definitely look for your weaknesses. And if you find, you will not envy. The adult doberman is a half-educated, large, strong, determined and excitable - grief for the owner and others. But a properly educated and trained representative of the breed obeys even a child. All in your hands.
The main character traits that must be taken into account in Doberman training are: stubbornness, integrity, cunning. If he ever gets the upper hand, you will prove your right to leadership all your life. If at least once hit the dog with a leash - forever lose respect and authority. Do not achieve unquestioning obedience - the pet will execute commands only when he wants to. You will have to work hard every day, grinding the character of the pet - from the moment the baby appears in the house until maturity (2 - 3 years).
Doberman Training Principles
Even a Doberman puppy is able to show aggression, it does not need to be taught specifically. Therefore, do not encourage manifestations of malice.
Stiffness, boring repetition and drill Doberman irritate and will not lead to success. Establish contact with your pet first and gain trust. These dogs value logic and consistency.
Doberman puppy is a tireless bully, just the embodiment of energy. He easily manages to manipulate gentle people, climbing up the hierarchical ladder. And in the future, such a pet can become unpredictable and dangerous.
Dobermans have a great memory, so they learn teams with ease. But they are also easily distracted due to increased excitability. The main teams unlearn in the game, in a familiar place, after the baby runs to the limit.
Socialization is crucial. Up to 2 years, take time to walk in unfamiliar places, teach your pet to strangers, animals, sounds and smells, ride in public transport.
In communication with the Doberman, remember that excessive rigidity can form a cowardly-aggressive dog.
Best of all, if you find it possible to take a general training course or a course “Guided City Dog”. Some kennels indicate this condition as mandatory, otherwise the puppy will not be sold.
