Doberman Pinscher Exploring the Amazing WV Wilderness


We took Kruz our 4 year old American Doberman on a run in the beautiful mountains today. He is an amazing beast that cannot be fully described in words. He has fully recovered from his torn toe nail and is in full beast mode again. Training, raising, loving a doberman has been one of the most rewarding things we have ever done. I hope you enjoy our day with him.

Domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris)
The Dobermann (/ˈdoʊbərmən/; German pronunciation: [ˈdoːbɐman]), or Doberman Pinscher in the United States and Canada, is a medium-large breed of domestic dog originally developed around 1890 by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann, a tax collector from Germany.[2] The Dobermann has a long muzzle and stands on its toes (not the pads) and is not usually heavy-footed. Ideally, they have an even and graceful gait. Traditionally, the ears are cropped and posted and the tail is docked. However, in some countries it is illegal to do so. Dobermanns have markings on the chest, paws/legs, muzzle, above the eyes, and underneath the tail.

Dobermanns are well known as intelligent, alert and tenaciously loyal companions and guard dogs. Personality varies a great deal between each individual, but if taken care of and trained properly they tend to be loving and devoted companions. The Dobermann is driven, strong and sometimes stubborn. Owning one requires commitment and care, but if trained well, they can be wonderful family dogs. With a consistent approach they can be easy to train and will learn very quickly. If properly trained, they can be excellent with children.

    Kruz is loving it but despite his drive and desire to run he is not about to run off and leave mom and dad In the dust.  That is just one of the reasons I love the breed.  Keep up the good work Joey, and thank you.

    Hello! I love watching your videos with Kruz, he's such a beautiful dog!🙌 i also have a few questions: did Kruz ever destroyed anything in the house like furniture or clothes or something like that? And is he an american doberman or european doberman? Im thinking of getting a dobie next year but i live in eastern europe and winters here can get realy cold and i don't know how i would exercise my dobie during the winter but i noticed that it was snowing in one of your videos so how do you keep Kruz fit and happy during the winter?

    Don't let him drink out of that dirty puddle, bring your own clean water. He can get stomach aches from drinking dirty water. Keep a bowl with you in the Jeep and a gallon of fresh water. Love your Dog‼️👍🐩🐕 Vinny 🇺🇸
