This video is about differences between American and European version of Doberman. But of course, they have a lot in common.
The Dobie is a relatively new breed compared to the ancestry of other canines. In the late 1800s, a German tax collector by the name of Louis Dobermann began to selectively breed a line of dogs to provide owner protection.
The Doberman is compactly built, muscular and powerful. They combine elegance and strength, speed and endurance. The Doberman coat is short, smooth, and hard, showing off the exceptionally clean-cut lines of this athletic breed.
Believe it or not, even though Dobermans have bad reputation, a good Doberman is a stable, friendly dog - unless you threaten his family. Developed as a guard dog, the Doberman has an innate ability not only to protect his family but also to anticipate danger and threats. They are loyal to their owners and are good with children if raised with them; however, some Dobermans bond only to one person.

Generally, smaller breeds have longer lives. The reason why is still unknown, though Kraus suggests that there are several possibilities, including that larger dogs may succumb to age-related illnesses sooner. Also, larger breeds grow from puppies to adults at an accelerated rate, and this may lead to a higher likelihood of abnormal cell growth and death from cancer.
Of course, it is always just an average lifespan, it is not possible to predict, how long will your dog live. And there are a lot of things how you can actually prolong your dogs life, for example with quality food, not overfeeding them, giving your dogs proper exercise – mental and physical or just making their life happy.
There are some people saying, that mixed breeds have longer lives, because they are not inheriting the bad recessive genes. But there are no official papers on this subject, so it is still very unclear. And there are no official data about mixed dog breeds lifespan. But again, smaller mixed breeds generally have longer lifespan than large dogs.
Being a guide dog puppy raiser is a great thing, but it demands a lot of your time and patience. Young puppies need all your attention and future guide puppies must be in contact with you all day long. It is very important to accept, that the dog is not yours, even if he is living with you for almost a year, because you will have to give him back to the guide dog training company.
The most important part of raising a future guide dog is the socialization. As a puppy raiser, you must take your dog to public offices, restaurants, shopping malls etc. And you must use all kinds of public transportation.
