More About This Title Dobermanns


As a breed, Dobermanns have acquired an unjustified reputation as "devil dogs" due to their courage, loyalty, intelligence, and physical strength. This book aims to dispel the myths surrounding this magnificent dog, and shows how Dobermanns can be loving and gentle family pets, as well as their more traditional role as guard dogs. Dobermanns: A Practical Guide for Owners traces the development of the breed from its early beginnings in the 19th century through to the present day, and offers the reader advice on every aspect of rearing and caring for these beautiful dogs.


Jay Horgan has kept Dobermanns as family pets for many years and with her husband established the award-winning Aritaur breeding kennels. Their ethos is to breed Dobermanns sparingly and conscientiously to produce strong and healthy dogs with an even temperament. Jay is an affiliate of the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers (BIPDT) and is the breed note writer for Dog World. She is also a judge at Championship level.
