Doberman Pinscher HistoryDoberman Pinscher History

The Doberman Pinscher dates back to the 1860's, and can be traced to a tax collector in Germany named Louis Dobermann. Some of the areas that Louis travelled were dangerous, with thieves waiting to steal the tax money that he collected. To thwart the would-be thieves, he created a dog with a bold presence and a fierce nature. To accomplish this he mixed many different breeds including the German Shepherd, Rottweiller, and pinschers. When he died he took all of his breeding secrets with him. Otto Goller carried on his work and founded the first Dobermann-Pinscher Club in 1899.

The Doberman Pinscher was first showcased at a dog show in 1876, where it enjoyed immediate success. The first dog arrived in North America in 1908, where it became a very popular police, guard, and war dog.
