What is the Z factor in Dobermans?
The Z factor means that the doberman carries the gene mutation that forms albinism. It is notated by the letter Z in their registration number. Z factor dobies should not be bred together because there is a chance of producing albino pups. There are many agonizing problems that come along with albinism including skin cancer and premature blindness which will cause the dog to become aggressive towards all people and animals around it. Any reputable breeder would never breed to form an albino and would certainly not charge more for an albino than a healthy pup that is of a recognized color
Yes. Any doberman with the albino gene in it's pedigree is registered as a "Z" factor. Albinos can be registered, but are disqualified from participating in shows because the gene is considered defective. Most breeders discourage breeding dogs with Z factor bloodlines but there are a few who intentionally breed them. They usually have health and temperment issues.
Doberman Pinschers are incredibly intelligent, loyal, and protective. As with any dog however, if not properly cared for they can become sulky, irritable, and antisocial. This is not something that is particular to Dobermans. Dobermans are not mean. They are not bred that way. Bad Training techniques or Cruel Owners make Dobermans mean.
Dobermans were originally from Germany. They were bred there by some guy who was always getting robbed by robbers. These dogs were meant to protect, not just for companions.

Many people have them, but some people heard the story (both in Germany and the…
All dogs and puppies need their sleep, even Dobermans. Puppy Dobermans will sleep A LOT. Young ones - O year old Dobermans need tons of sleeping time. They will cry because they miss there parents. But, then they'll adjust to sleeping alone. Adult and Senior Dobermans need a nice and calm LONG sleep, just like puppies, only MORE. They say "NEVER wake a sleeping dog" because dogs don't 'oversleep'.
yes dobermans o get along with other dogs, but as long as they are brought up with them, i have had a doberman and a staff for years now and they have been fine, but that was only because they grew up together from the age of 3 months. As dobermans are such strong dogs, i wouldn't recommed bringing a new family pet into the house after him. Hope i helped x
Dobermans are bred to be guard dogs. Alert, intelligent, great agility and loyal. At home Dobermans love attention from their owners and they love to go places and meet new people. The most important thing they need is lots of exercise, room to run and plenty of love. My Doberman is very friendly to animals and humans, including kids.
