These long, head, sleek and toned body dogs are always fueled with energy, which is also why if you don’t play or make your Doberman not run enough, they become very aggressive and irritated. Their history goes back to Germany around the late 1800s where Louis Doberman first developed this breed.

Labrador Retrievers are one of the most fantastic family dogs. They love kids, kids adore them, and you don’t have to make them exercise too much.
