Rookie the Doberman Pinscher at our pet Vaccination clinic in Rocklin
This is Rookie the Doberman Pinscher and his human at our pet vaccination clinic in Rocklin. Sometimes ‘Dobies’ can be terribly high strung and aggressive as well as jumpy but Rookie is none of that. He’s easy to get along with and has a good relationship with his human which shows that the two have spent a lot of time together and that the good training has paid off. The Doberman Pinscher was developed in Germany around 1890 by a breeder named . . .wait for it . . . ‘Doberman’! who wanted to produce a strong, quick and fearless personal guardian dog. Train-ability and loyalty have always been a prominent trait and they have served well as guard dogs, police dogs, and war dogs. Breeding since WWII has modulated their aggressive instinct and they now make reasonably good household alarm and pet dogs. Good training and socialization is important as some ‘Dobies’ as stated above can be quite nervous and high strung. The Doberman may not be a good fit for a household with young children.
