The Doberman is an energetic athletic breed which needs a lot of exercise and free play. A Doberman will enjoy going for long daily walks or hikes with his owner, and having a large fenced area where he can run is vital for his physical and mental well-being.
One of major disease the Doberman may suffer from is bloat, a life-threatening digestive condition that owners should learn the signs of. Genetic health conditions that can affect the breed include hip dysplasia, dilated cardiomyopathy (enlarged heart), von Willebrand’s disease (a clotting disorder), progressive retinal atrophy, albinism, and hypothyroidism. Never purchase a puppy or dog from a breeder who has not genetically tested their breeding stock for these conditions.
