Providing Doberman Pinscher care should not only be limited to feeding and provision of shelter. Raising a strong Doberman Pinscher also involves provision of exercise training, socialization opportunities and anything affecting the overall well-being of dogs.
Dobermans live an active life. As working dogs, they are exposed to demanding physical tasks every day. Therefore, exercises should be made a regular part of Doberman Pinscher care program. Failure to do so will affect the ability of these dogs to function effectively. Even for Dobermans that are not raised to become a working dog, providing exercise training is still important.
Doberman Pinscher care should always strive to harness the inherent strengths of these dogs. Walking Dobermans every day or jogging along with them is not enough for this very strong and combative animals. Harnessing and maintaining their physical skills require high-speed running that is not possible in a typical home backyard. A truly effective Doberman Pinscher care regimen will involve the use of open area, like parks, where dogs are free to run and jump.
Make sure your dogs are not running out of energy. Give them nutritious meals and watch how they respond to the foods they eat. Adjust their diets if you see adverse signs like diarrhea, weakening or abnormal behaviors.
You can also integrate sports into your Doberman Pinscher care routines. Dog sports improve the agility and mental alertness of dogs. Sports are good substitutes for complex dog training that only professional trainers can design. For an average dog owner with no technical knowledge on dog training, dog sports can do the job. Surprisingly, some dog owners come up with Doberman exercise equipment to keep their dogs in shape. Dog parks are usually the most accessible and ideal place to let your dogs play around as they perform regular exercises or training activities.
There are also some important things to remember when bathing your Doberman. Be mindful of the environmental temperature and adjust the temperature of water accordingly. For your convenience, use dog washing nozzles and a long hose that comes with an instant on-off trigger so you can easily direct and stop the flow of water. Test the temperature of water before doing your first round of spraying. Only spray water on your Doberman once you are sure of the temperature. And do not forget to clean dog beds as well. Like humans, working dogs need their nails, ears and teeth to be cleaned regularly. Keeping your dogs clean will help prevent illnesses, so do it regularly.
