she's country: How can I make my Doberman Pinscher aggressive?
I just bought a 3 month old Doberman Pinscher and want him to be a fair watch dog. I don't want to make him really really mean, but all he does is sleep. He doesn't even know the meaning of play. I try to make him bite my hands like my pitbull Bullet used to, but even when i push him around he just sits there like "What are you doing?" and then he curls up under me and falls asleep....... What can I do?

you're just asking for trouble. most dobes are good as most people are scared of them.

It isn't anything you can do your self. It takes a Professional Trainer that is also a Canine Behaviorist that understands canine aggression.
I would be willing to bet that if you took 5 or even 10 Dobermans that have been raised like any normal dog & did a temperament test on them (at the age of 18 months) there maybe 1 or 2 would show strong tendencies towards aggression. Just because the dog is a Doberman doesn't mean that the dog will be aggressive. It is the temperament of the individual dog, regardless of breed.
When you train a dog in aggression work you also have to train in controls so you have 100% control of its aggression. It takes several months to train a dog to that point.

"but all he does is sleep. He doesn't even know the meaning of play." BECAUSE HE'S A PUPPY.
What can you do? Return him to his breeder, you are CLEARLY not capable of being a good owner let alone an owner of a "watch dog"
WATCH DOGS ALERT. They bark that is what makes them WATCH dogs. GUARD DOGS bite attack etc and something tells me you wouldn't pony up the cash to have it properly trained anyways.
Sorry but who the hell complains that their puppy ISN'T biting them on the hands.

Making your dog into guard dogs or aggressive dogs, could make the risk of having them seriously injure, you or someone else, and then having him put down. Trust me, most of the time just by having a big dog, like a doberman or pit bull is enough to keep people away.

stop reading this stupid comments. what you first want to o is slapping him softly not hard. this is gonna take some time to make him aggressive. i got a dog and all he did was sleep on the couch. he was still a puppy `but he didnt sleep because of that, it was because he was scared. he would look at me like what are you doing after some days he would stare oppening his mouth and moving his head. I kept doing it until he actually was biting me. he doesnt bark yet but he bites . IF you want to make it agressive thats how you do it.
