We breed and sell dobermans in Florida, the doberman origanated in germany as a guard dog. These dogs of european descent earned a fierce reputation.
But most people don’t know that there are two different types of dobermans, American and European.
The American version is called a doberman pinscher.
While the european is called european doberman.
Even though they look simular for the most part they are vastly different in temperament, and size.
If you are looking for a family guard dog then a European doberman is what you want.
The American doberman was breed to be a show dog and is smaller in size with an average weight from 60 to 80 lbs .
While the European doberman average weight is 80 to 100 lbs being more muscular, and are called a working class dog.
The European has a high drive and more aggressive attitude making them a superior family guard dog.
We have had doberman’s for almost 40 years and i can tell you from personal experience there is no comparison.
That being said there still is a another difference in the european doberman line that most people are not aware of, and it’s size.
They are referred to what some people call large King or warlock, with an average weight of 100 to 120 lbs they are very rare and hard to find.
We breed and sell the large doberman puppies for one reason.
They are hands down a far greater deterent for an intruder.
When it comes to a guard dog size weight, and temperment matter.
Just think about it, you are an intruder and come to a door and you either see a 80 pound doberman or an 120 pound doberman standing in front of you.
Who do you think gets more respect ?
Most men weigh between 170 and 200lbs.
I can tell you that 120 doberman can knock you down very easily.
That would be the worst place to be is on the ground with one that is intent on doing harm.
Also being much larger when on there hind legs they are in your face to bite you, not nipping at your legs, and arms.
Our dobermans attack high, not low.
This is why People wait 6 months to a year to get one of ours, and travel over 1000 miles !
