As dobsky is a protective dog, so definitely inclined to get upset and aggressive around strangers. They are possessive about their owners, so they won’t allow anyone else to come near. These dogs need to be trained at an early age so that they learn the difference between a “stranger” and an “enemy”. Not every stranger is an enemy. This way dogs will stay calm near other dogs and people.

Also,  teach your dobsky to be an obedient pup. Otherwise, his protective nature can make him arrogant and stubborn too. Reward him when he follows your order. He must know that only you are the boss around.

Dobsky gets attached to the owner in a very emotional way.  It is important to train him to stay separated for some time. Otherwise,  the dog will suffer depression and anxiety. At an early age,  teach the dog to stay at his own safe place. You can also crate train your dog to teach him the importance of having one’s own safe place. Our guide on crate training a golden retriever will surely help you.


Well,  grooming a Dobsky depends on his coat type. If he has inherited his parent’s husky coat,  expect more grooming. Brush 3-4 times a week. If he has inherited Doberman’s coat, brushing 2-3 times is enough. Also, Dobsky sheds more so expect hair strands everywhere.

This hybrid is usually clean and you don’t need to bathe them often. Just shove away the dirt and they will be fine. You can also bathe them every 3-4 months.

If dobsky has inherited floppy ears,  cleanse them well to avoid bacterial infection.

Exercise needs

Dobsky is a very energetic dog. He needs to play,  jump,  explore and rule the world with his massive energy. We advise dobsky to people who can afford this much stamina. A dobsky needs daily 1 hour to 2 hours of training and exercise. If dobsky is not given a proper chance to take out his energy,  he will end up destroying things and becoming a little monster!


Overall,  Dobsky is a fine and healthy dog but as every dog can get or inherit diseases,  so can dobsky. Dobsky may inherit diseases from his parents which could be

  • Hip dysplasia

Which is common among heavier dogs. The hip bone can dislocate due to joints malformation in a way that can cause pain and even paralysis in dogs. An abnormal gait is the first sign to hip dysplasia.

  • Eye diseases

Both husky and Doberman are prone to eye diseases like cherry eye,  redness,  cataracts,  atrophy, etc. So pay attention to any redness in the eye or if a dog is having an eye discharge.

  • Autoimmune diseases

Dobsky can also suffer from different autoimmune and blood diseases too.

Regularly take your dog to the vet for a checkup and if you notice any weird symptoms, take professional help.


Dobsky has high energy. Energetic dogs must be fed higher protein portions. Feeding them more carbohydrates can make them obese. Dobsky has a strong built that he has inherited from the Doberman side. So feed him up to three cups of dog food every day. For additional supplements consult your vet.
