8. No, a Doberman bred for the correct temperment is not, by nature, a nervous dog. They are full of energy. If a Doberman owner tends to be nervous, stressed and unsure of how to properly handle/train a Doberman, their dog will often display their owner's nervousness and confusion. They are known for being very in tune with their owners and will demonstrate this in a variety of ways. That bieng said, a Doberman who has not been properly socialized or who does not have the correct genetic temperament may exhibit signs of nervousness.
