The Doberman Shepherd puppy is extremely energetic. In order to remain on top of their health (and for the betterment of your home and belongings), you would need to give him lots of exercises. If you live in a small apartment, this dog would not be the best fit for you as he would need space to run around the house. A house with a decently sized yard would be ideal for him. You need to take him for at least two long walks and let him play around the yard in order to live a healthy life. If you have an active lifestyle, this is the dog that you need in your life. Figure out to include playtime and games that would mentally stimulate him, in order to keep it all interesting. Exercise is needed to ensure that he stays healthy, undestructive, and happy.
The German Shepherd Doberman mix is a very bright dog and so is quite easy to train for people who are experienced with dogs. He is stubborn, so you need to show him who is a leader in order to ensure that he listens to you. Use positive affirmations and treats to make the training truly worthwhile. But one thing is for sure; this breed understands your words, so the time taken is less than training other breeds. Keep adding little playtime to keep him interested, and you are gold.
The Doberman Shepherd does not need much grooming. Since the coat is short, the shedding is not much. Just regular grooming would sort this issue, depending on his shedding it could be anywhere from once a day to every three days. This dog does not really like water, so in order to make bath time less stressful, it is a good idea to train him in puppyhood. You do not need to follow a schedule, just bathe him when he needs it. If it is still too stressful, use a professional. Unless you have done it before, get a groomer clip his nails and clean his ears. There is just one thing that you need to do daily, and that is to brush his teeth.
