Like I had said in my last post (if you haven’t checked it out yet, I suggest go do it) we learned that the Miniature Pincher and the Doberman Pincher are completely different dogs. Now we are going to talk about how their characteristics are different. First of all, the Min Pin (that’s what I call them) is a one person dog, but can be trained to be a family dog (it is very hard), they also are guard dogs. The Doberman Pincher is a family dog, and also a guard dog. As we see here are differences and similarities, they are both guard dogs, but one is a family dog and the other isn’t. There are also many other differences and similarities between these dogs, but that doesn’t mean they are related. Saying that these dogs are related is like saying that the dachshund and the Rottweiler are the related, which they aren’t.
I hope you learned a lot from this! Don’t forget to comment down below and let me know how I can improve and maybe even add to my site :D.
Here is a question for you, “was the Doberman Pincher bred BEFORE the Miniature Pincher? Or was it the opposite? ” What do you think? Well if you said that the Doberman Pincher was bred before the mini companion, you were wrong. For those that had chose the opposite, well done! You know your Miniature Pincher facts! But those that don’t know why that they were wrong, take a seat. The Miniature Pincher was bred to be a guard dog in Germany back in the 1800s. There was one man who wanted a bigger “version” of these tiny, aggressive little dogs. That is where the Doberman Pincher came in, after breeding many dogs, the Doberman Pincher was bred. This isn’t the answer to your question, the answer to your question is that the Doberman Pincher was bred from COMPLETELY different dogs than the Miniature Pincher! The sad thing about this is that so little know about this, which is why I created this site.
I hope you learned something today, we will continue about this in my next blog. And don’t forget to comment down below what you think!
Hope to see you there!
It all started about 3 years ago, we woke up one morning, and as usual took the dogs out… but this morning was different. Toby, my Doberman Pincher, was throwing up everywhere on the living room carpet. We thought he had just drank some toilet water and the cleaner was making him sick. We rushed him to the vet, and we were there for about 4 hours. Turns out the copper used in dog food is a substitute copper, the real copper was more expensive so they got the substitute instead. Oh and here’s what makes me mad, when they were switching the coppers, they didn’t test the substitute one on the dogs… oh no no no they didn’t! they tested it on… PIGS!!!!!!! PIGS! THATS RIGHT PIGS! Not to mention the pig has a COMPLETELY DIFFRENT stomach form than A DOG. But noooo “If its all right on a pig its all right on a dog” how wrong they were.
I’m not making this up guys, this is something our vet told us personally, plus, would I ever lie to you guys? No. Anyways… the substitute copper gets caught in their liver and clogs it, causing dogs to get liver failure and a lot of other liver diseases. Well my dog was one of these unlucky dogs… he spent almost a week at the vets’ office. We were worried sick. He refused to eat or drink. Luckily, he got better and is still with us today. And after that incident we haven’t fed our dogs dog food. Instead we feed them cooked rice with beef or turkey in it along with some eggs. And our dogs have never been healthier! In fact feeding your dog less starchy foods like dog food reduces your risk of having fleas! And it also makes your pet’s coat very, very shiny.
Miniature Pinchers are loyal companions, and if they are trained right, they can be the most well behaved dog <3. Min Pins need proper care, and lots of exercise. I let my Min Pin run in my backyard for about 30 minutes a day and then he is pretty worn out the rest of the day. Since Min Pins have guard dog in them, they will be very protective over their owner, so I suggest if they start barking at someone, tap them on the nose or block them from being able to see the thing they are barking at. Min Pins also don’t really get along with other dogs to well, or at least mine doesn’t anyway. I suggest if your planning on adopting one and you have other dogs…. before adopting bring your dogs to the kennel or wherever the Min Pin is being held, and let them sniff and see how they get along. This is a breed fact I learned recently, the Min Pin is not related to the Doberman Pincher! They are 2 completely different dog breeds. If someone tells you this is wrong, tell them to learn their dog facts better! If none of these are working well for you or your dog, I suggest checking out Cesar Millan. I do hope that some of these work for you, so far they have worked for me.
I hope to see you in my next blog ❤
