Can the Doberman sense fear? If so, do they become aggressive when they do?

A Doberman can sense many feelings in people; by sense I mean read body posture. Body posture is how dogs communicate so it’s natural for a Doberman to learn the human language of body posture (body language).

The way a Doberman reacts is specific to the situation. A Doberman feeling someone’s fear who is a guest to his home will certainly not be angry about it. A Doberman will likely react carefully around someone displaying fear. If he is trained to approach guests politely, he will be extra polite.

In situations where a Doberman is expected to protect his handler, fear is one of the things an attacker may display. This doesn’t mean if you show fear to a Doberman he will attack you, he will just be a little more suspicious.
