Can I keep my beautiful yard and garden with a Doberman?

I am interested in owning a Doberman. I am also interested in keeping my beautiful yard and summer garden. Are these both likely?

The real question is: Do you have enough time and patience to keep up this beautiful yard and garden, and train a Doberman. If you do, you can certainly expect to have both.

Dobermans love their greens and eat plenty of grass so no chemicals should be applied to the lawn. They need plenty of lawn for exercise, not just a dog run. They also enjoy sampling other vegetation so you will need to teach them not to sample anything expensive. Likewise, they need to learn not to dig, or at least only to dig in a certain area.

In other words, it is possible to have a Doberman and a nice backyard. It will just take a lot of work.
