First breeder was the German Friedrich Louis Dobermann (January 2, 1834 – June 9, 1894) who worked as a local tax collector. His second job was dog-catcher. He had the right to catch all free-running dogs in town and soon he had access to dogs of many breeds. He needed protection in his job as a tax collector and wanted to create a breed that could protect him. These dogs were used later on as guard and police dogs.
If you are a beginner in dogs, you should not get a doberman as they require a consequent and proper training. If you go for a walk with a doberman other people will not look friendly at you.
