Learn more about the breed


The German Kennel Club officially recognised the Dobermann Pinscher as a breed in 1900. Otto Goeller is credited with making the Doberman into a more useful canine. Nearly all of the best German sires and offspring were imported to the United States after 1921. The Doberman Pinscher was once more under danger in Germany during World War II. Many believe that the breed might have been extinct if Americans hadn't brought in so many dogs in the past. Germans and British both eliminated the word "Pinscher" from the name of the breed in the middle of the 20th century.

Breeders have diligently tried over the years to soften the original Dobie's feisty personality with good success. Although the Doberman is protective of their family and home,

they're known as an affectionate and loyal companion.


You get a super-intelligent, super-active dog when you adopt a Doberman Pinscher. You also receive a playful and enjoyable dog who is incredibly obedient and trustworthy around the family. They are a family's natural guardian and won't hesitate to take action if they feel threatened, but they are not violent without cause. The Dobie enjoys mental and physical activity. Training them is simple, and they pick things quite quickly. It might be difficult to keep courses engaging and new because of how quickly kids pick things up. They may have their own opinions, but when their owner is consistent and compassionate in their leadership, they are usually not unduly obstinate or difficult. The Dobie needs early socialisation, or exposure to a variety of people, sights, sounds, and experiences when they're young, much like every other dog.


The Doberman Pinscher thrives in a suburban or rural setting with space to run around. Every day, they require a lot of exercise, which might be taxing for owners who aren't up to the task. They require a house with a yard that is completely enclosed, both for their protection for the protection of people and animals who unintentionally enter their territory. They shouldn't be kept as an outside dog in the backyard or left alone for extended periods of time. Neither should they be chained. The Dobie must be included in the family and take part in all activities. The Dobie frequently elicits dread among the public. Consider this when keeping your Dobie on a leash in public areas.


Importance of KCI

Also known as the Kennel Club of India, KCI is a professional body that maintains strict standards across various breeds of dogs across India. All KCI registered dogs come with a KCI registration certificate from the breeder, ensuring their pedigree. KCI representative may also visit the breeder at the time of whelping to ensure maintenance of breed standards. 
As the only reputed governing body of dog breed standards, we always recommend getting a dog that has been registered through this organization in order to have clarity regarding their origin. 

This does, however not ensure the conditions the pup was reared in or in what manner their parents might have been treated. This concern is what brings us to our next point: AWBI Certification

Significance of AWBI

The Animal Welfare Board of India requires that any individual selling any living dog must be registered with the animal welfare state board of their jurisdiction. In not doing so, both the buyer and seller are committing a crime.

Since this amendment was passed, it became illegal to buy / sell dogs without the breeder being the valid, original holder of an AWBI license. Apart from this judicial responsibility, AWBI also has strict guidelines regarding the conditions that the dogs must be kept in and the treatment provided to them. These guidelines make sure breeders follow responsible breeding practices  Due to these reasons, we strictly work only with AWBI registered breeders, and implore you to do the same.

How can you make a difference?

Ensure that you only work with AWBI registered breeders, and if you're looking for a purebred dog try to find one that is KCI registered. By forcing the breeders to obtain a license, we may finally put an end to puppy mills and unethical breeding practices.
