Grooming: A soft bristle brush or hound glove will keep his coat clean, healthy and shiny. They shed minimally and will enjoy grooming as a good time to bond with their owners. Their fast-growing strong nails should be trimmed regularly with a nail clipper or grinder to avoid overgrowth and cracking. Their ears should be checked regularly to avoid a buildup of wax and debris which can result in an infection. Teeth should be brushed regularly.
In general the Doberman is an extremely healthy breed. They are very alert, loyal and highly trainable.
