Should you avoid rough play with your Doberman?

Doberman owners are often cautioned against playing roughly with their Doberman. The fear is that the dog will become accustomed to treating people roughly. There is also the possibility when playing roughly with such a powerful dog for accidental injury.

Rough play can be fun at times but only with a mature already well trained Doberman. Doberman puppies are naturally rough and belligerent, so rough play should be avoided with Doberman puppies.
