Question by Inca187: Which breed makes better guard dog, a german shepherd or a doberman? Also, which breed is better overall?
I hear that nowadays, doberman are more gentle and plus I’ve seen videos on dobermans and they look to soft to guard.

And so are most shepherds. You want a guard dog…look at the Fila Brasileiro, the best protection dogs in the world.
ADD: Dobesrangels…you sound like one of the people responsible for destroying the breed.
One of the GREATEST working dogs ever produced, the dog that fought in the war as part of the “Devil Dog Brigade”, one of the best protection dogs ever created is now dead.
Thank you for destroying a breed to satisfy your needs and the needs of others just as messed up.
ADD: Exactly my point, a dog bred for work cannot work anymore because breeders and “pet” people want to keep a once great dog as a couch ornament.
I know there are breeders that keep breeding working Dobermans, all out of Russia and former Eastern block countries. You have to jump through all kinds of hoops and be very lucky to get near one.
I really wish that people who do not want a working dog, not get a working dog and dump it down to fill their needs, just get a lap dog and be happy.
It’s just a shame!!!
ADD: Memphis…I will happily retract that statement, with dilight even, if you come up with a breeders list that consistently produces working Dobermans, not just sport dogs.
