The guarding instinct

Dobermans were bred first and foremost as personal protection dogs – it’s in their genes. Louis Doberman, a tax collector from Germany, combined several dog breeds including the German Shepherd and the Pinscher to obtain a mix of intelligence, soundness, toughness of character and quick reaction to create the Doberman Pinscher. He selected dogs for their courage, loyalty, and emotional sensitivity so that they could be counted on as both loving companions and fierce protectors.

Breeding and selection

At Elite Dobermans UK each and every puppy we provide comes from parents that hold at the very minimum the BH working title (basic obedience and traffic sureness). This ensures all of our puppies have sound and even personalities in line with the FCI accredited international breed standard, with undesirable traits eliminated. The vast majority of the puppies we supply come from parents that hold either IPO 1, 2 or 3 or the Schutzhund German equivalent (protection training).

We hand pick the best puppies from litters based on their aptitude and suitability and subsequently it is within your puppies’ genetic code to have a natural predisposition towards protection. That is not to say they are out of the box guard dogs however! We are happy to advise you on which puppy is best for your requirements whether it is a goofy family pet you want or a sharp instinctive high drive demon – we have them all.

Whilst all of our puppies have a natural tendency to guard and protect their family, to really realise their true potential consistent and ongoing training is essential.
