The Doberman has lots of energy and stamina when needed, but is actually only a moderately active dog. He or she needs a decent amount of exertion, it doesn’t have to be high-octane activities, but he or she does need a workout every single day. In fact, this intelligent dog can be stimulated with activities that are more mental than active.
Suggested Exercise Plan
A moderate walk twice a day OR one moderate walk and a session of training or games.
Things To Note
Doberman can be a willful dog if his or her owner does NOT display the proper leadership or provide enough exercise. Be firm and provide regular steady activity.
