Doodleman Pinscher

History

The Doodleman Pinscher is a crossbreed between a Poodle and the Doberman Pinscher. It has been recently developed so not much is known about its origin. The dog borrows mixed characteristics from its parents and despite being a large-sized dog, it has a proportioned build. The distinct facial features along with the long head and poodle type ears make it distinctly different. Other than these the robust front legs, smooth shoulders, as well as the angular back legs are a few things that characterize their body.

Temperament and Personality

The Doberman poodle mix is a loving, easy-going and pleasant dog that is comfortable with kids and other pets inside the house. They can be stubborn at times, but their obedient, warm and cheerful nature makes it suitable as a family pet. Since they are highly attentive and protective towards their family, they become excellent guard dogs and remain conscious when they come in contact with any stranger.

Care

Exercise

The dog is adaptive to apartment life but requires an adequate amount of workout daily. They are agile and active, so they need enough activity to keep themselves fit and happy both mentally and physically. Additionally, they are naturally fond of regular, lengthy leash walk and interactive exciting games. To stay away from boredom, give them dog toys or let them plan and run in a fenced area.

Grooming

Depending on the type of coat it has, brush its fur frequently removing loose or dead hair. Its curly and long hair makes it difficult to maintain, so take them to a professional groomer occasionally. Clean its ears with the moist cloth to avoid infection and bathe them when necessary with a gentle dog shampoo.

Health Problems

The breed majorly suffers from a few canine health issues like hip dysplasia, epilepsy, Wobbler Syndrome,  progressive retinal atrophy, bloating, Von Willebrand’s Disease and skin problems.

Training

Doberman Pinscher mix puppies are not that hard to handle but might exhibit wilful behavior which makes teaching tough. Do not use harsh tone and rough method to make them learn. Be firm and consistent while training and use positive techniques like rewarding, giving treats when they do something useful. Teach them to be social, obedient and well-mannered while they are out.

Feeding

Serve your pet 3-4 cups of high-quality dry kibbles split into two meals daily. Also give whole grains such as brown rice, sweet potatoes, raw meat and include food rich in nutrition.
