Plenty of stupid opinions when it comes to dogs. The fact that the OP is considering a pair of Dobermans is a bit concerning. Get a family dog from a breeder that focuses on healthy dogs with calm temperament. Think lab, golden or springer. Other breeds may be as good, but none will be better. Even the best breeds can be screwed up by a bad trainer. Plan on obedience classes with the dog AND the daughter. The dog will be around quite a while. Choose wisely and train well.

I've had many dogs over the years but just bought a couple of Great Pyrenees puppies to use as livestock guardian dogs from guardian stock. I've been really shocked at how low-key these dogs are, even as puppies. Easy going and likable but have the goods if needed for protection. I can see why a ewe would allow them around its lamb.

With that said, I would get two of these in that they seem to need the social interaction. They also seem to be a little stubborn with an attitude that they know what's best so seem a little more difficult to train than many dogs.

This guy forgets all about me when the grandkid shows up.

My brother has a sheltie and it's the biggest pussy dog I've ever seen. It backs down/runs away and hides when I bring over my Jack Russel and it's even afraid of my wifes Pom-Chi.

If your daughter was ever threatened, a barking dog may get attention faster than one who only bites.

With some patience and a lot of training it might work .

Ive got 2 that don’t like people or other dogs and head the opposite direction when either show up. I’ve got two others that don’t see an enemy, I call the The Greeters. The one in the photo actually ran off the neighbors Jack Russel over at the cabin but played with his beagle, go figure. Dogs have different traits you know.
