How to Draw a Doberman Dog

Learn how to draw a Doberman Dog by following step-by-step directions. This one shows his ears in their natural floppy state.

The Dobermann (also known as a Doberman Pinscher in the United States and Canada) is a medium-large breed of domestic dog that was originally developed by a German tax collector named by Karl Friedrich Louis Dobermann. Apparently he wanted a guard to protect him as he travelled with his work.

Today’s Doberman dogs have a much friendlier reputation. The are said to be very intelligent and loyal animals. Your students can try drawing a nice portrait of one by focusing on just the shape of their head, and their distinctive coloring.

Thanks to a thoughtful reader, I recently learned that the pointed ears that Dobermans are famous for, are actually man-made. For that reason, this tutorial shares how to draw a doberman in its original state, soft floppy ears and all.
