Doberman puppy training needs to begin from a very early age. The Doberman Pinscher is a medium sized dog with a squarely built, compact body. The Doberman Pinscher is an extremely keen and highly energetic dog, and has a huge amount of stamina and strength. The Doberman likes to be around people and isn’t very suited to a backyard life. They require lots of leadership and interaction with humans. The dog itself is intensely loyal and highly affectionate towards its owner and family. However, they are also quite bold and assertive when working. Their versatility levels are very high, and the Doberman can easily adapt to working a number of different tasks. It should be known that the Doberman requires an owner who is able to exert natural authority over the dog. In the following few paragraphs, we will give some important Doberman puppy training tips.
The Doberman Pinscher has a huge amount of stamina and strength, and it is an extremely energetic dog. This means that the Doberman isn’t the kind of dog which just likes to sit around or nap all day. No, it will require significant amounts of exercise on a daily basis (at least two hours of exercise) in order to ensure that the pup does not develop destructive tendencies. Take it out for a walk, or preferably a run in the morning, and then go for some outside playing in the evening too.
The second thing to keep in mind in Doberman puppy training is to make sure that you let the pup know who’s more authoritative. The Doberman Pinscher is used to traveling in packs, and you need to show that you are the pack leader. How do you do this? Well, as soon as the pup begins to disengage, stop training and reinforce what you’ve just said. These are highly observant dogs, and will soon begin to see that everything happens on your get- go, and will automatically adapt itself to listen to you. Unless you are able to train the Doberman Pinscher to know who the alpha in the house is, it will become a serious problem for you to train the dog in the right manner.
If you are wondering how to train a Doberman puppy, there are a number of differences between this and other breeds. First of all, the Doberman requires an extremely high level of physical exercise that the dog requires. Secondly, as mentioned above, these are highly authoritative dogs, and unless you teach it that you are the leader, the dog will remain disobedient. Concentration and focus is required to make sure that the Doberman learns to listen to its master. Doberman puppy training is not difficult, but in order to carry it out properly, you will need to be highly devoted to your puppy.
