We don’t usually see Dobermans being used as service dogs, but when we do it’s a wonderful thing. Not only do these dogs help their owners, but they also help improve the Doberman’s reputation. They are typically known for their work as guard dogs, but Dobermans being used in other fields more. They are now seen working in search & rescue, as therapy dogs for PTSD, guide dogs for the blind, hospital therapy, and seizure dogs. And since Dobermans are intelligent, highly trainable, and alert dogs they are perfect candidates for service dog work.
These two videos provide a glimpse into their service dog training and hospital therapy dog work.
