Attitude, character and temperament of the breed
Possible character traits of Doberman and Great Dane mix - Such is probably his nature.
The Doberman, also called the Doberman Pinscher in the United States, is a medium-sized domestic dog breed originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a German tax collector. The Doberman has a long muzzle, and as a trademark had docked ears and a docked tail. However, this is prohibited now. The American Kennel Club (AKC), the Kennel Club (UK) and the United Kennel Club (UKC) oversee the breeding of the Doberman.
If you mix these two breeds, you can get a massive and regal looking dog. The ideal Doberman-Dog mix is considered to be even-tempered, loving and loyal, just like its two parent breeds. They are very protective of their family and make excellent watchdogs. However, early socialization is crucial with this mix, as they can be very wary and territorial if not properly trained.
These mixes are not for novice dogs, as their training requires a lot of time, patience and energy. They also need a lot of space to run, so a house with a large yard is ideal. Due to their size, they are not suitable for households with small children, as they might accidentally knock them over.
