Do I need to brush my Doberman?

In general, it's a good idea to brush your Doberman about once a week outside (it'll make a mess if you try it indoors). If you brush more than once a week, that's ok, and you may even see their coat start to shine more.

Can Dobermans get haircuts?

Luckily, Dobermans don't need much grooming, so you can spend the extra time training your new pup. They will appreciate being brushed down with a rubber brush or grooming mitt occasionally to reduce shedding and help their coat retain its natural sheen.

Do Dobermans get fleas?

In fact, one of the reasons the Doberman was originally bred with a short coat was flea prevention. These tiny jumpy creatures irritate the dog's skin and cause him to scratch and chew at the irritated spots. ... Besides being an irritant, fleas also spread tapeworm.

Should you neuter a Doberman?

For the average person I recommend pretty much what most vets recommend--somewhere around six months. The pro's on a neuter at that age are that the males haven't started to develop some of the less attractive male behaviors.

When should I get my female Doberman spayed?

Registered. If you don't think you can prevent her from getting pregnant then go ahead and spay her before her first heat, probably best by 7/8 months. However if you're sure she won't get pregnant, I would wait till at least 16 months.

How do you get rid of fleas on a Doberman pinscher?
