German pinscher

Basic info about german pinscher

A dog of superior intelligence. The German Pinscher originated in Germany and is included in the origins of the Doberman, Miniature Pinscher and other Pinscher types. They are closely related to the Standard Schnauzer. They are a handsome, robust, squarely built, medium size dog with aristocratic bearing. Black and tan, various shades of red, fawn, and blue and tan, with a short, flat coat. They are not excessive barkers. Noted for guarding the home and family.

They are a high commitment dog: very intelligent, determined, manipulative and assertive. The German Pinschers make a wonderful companion with firm yet gentle and consistent discipline. They keep their playfulness well into adulthood.

The German Pinscher is a medium sized dog. Knee high, they are between 17-20" high at the shoulders and generally weigh about 25-45 pounds.

As a home guardian, the German Pinscher excels. It readily accepts friends of the family, but warns away strangers with a strong voice which it saves for such occasions. And woe unto the attacker or intruder!

The German Pinscher is not the breed for those who want a slow, placid dog, or a dog that can be "fed and forgotten", for they insist on being a part of the family activities and develop best when treated in this manner. For this reason, most German Pinschers are house pets. They are outstanding companions, known for their devotion and love of the family. However, they are not recommended for families with small children (9 years or younger). Because of their strong will, intelligence and independent nature, early socialization and obedience training is a must. If the owner is too casual about dog training, the strong willed, highly intelligent, independent, spirited German Pinscher will not be a good choice as a family dog.

Character of german pinscher

Due to their intelligence, they learn quickly; but like a mischievous child, they need a firm, but not rough, hand. They quickly housebreak and learn the house rules. But, they will get away with whatever they can and soon "rule the house" if allowed. They excel in obedience and agility, with enthusiasm and intelligence. The happy German Pinscher is a dog with a job to do. They love to work.

They are not excessive barkers, as noted above. They love to jump when greeting family and friends and should be trained to resist this temptation. German Pinschers love toys and puppies will de-squeak and de-stuff as many toys as you will give them. Also, German Pinschers will look you right in the eye and some will smile, showing their teeth in a big grin, usually when they are in trouble.

The German Pinscher needs daily exercise. They are happiest when they can run free in a supervised fenced yard. However, they can do just as well in an apartment setting if given a minimum of two long walks per day. The German Pinscher is a healthy breed and none of the health problems that may occur are unique to German Pinschers. The German Pinscher is not for everyone. They need leadership tempered with patience, respect, intelligence and love. Realize, the German Pinscher will not tolerate much physical or mental abuse from the family children. As in all breeds, temperaments differ from dog to dog; but as a general rule, caution and supervision is important around young children.

BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY: The smooth haired Pinscher represents a very old breed which was mentioned in the German Stud Book for dogs in 1880 already. He has the same ancestors as the Schnauzer which was also called the rough coated Pinscher. From the beginning the smooth haired Pinschers differed from the rough haired specimen in their colour and their short coat. They were mostly black with light brown markings, self coloured in various shades of brown to red, pepper and salt or simply blue-grey to black.

GENERAL APPEARANCE : The German Pinscher is smooth-haired, medium in size with proud carriage, flowing outlines, elegant and square build. He is strong like the Schnauzer. Due to his short smooth coat, his well developed muscles are clearly visible especially when he moves.
