This is a pure breed doberman and is the most aggressive dog i have ever seen, his name is spiky and he is very playful but also very very aggressive.He is 13 months old. As the characteristics of a doberman he is very alert and guarding and is very protective for the family.
Is there any method to calm him down???

A Dobberman by nature is aggressive (except mine who was the dumbest most docile dobby that i ever knew)
You are probably keeping him confined or tied most of the time. Stop that. Then take him out for a walk in crowded places and he will realize that all people are not harmful. Most aggression comes from within us when we ask him to attack or bark etc. This if not done will make the dog docile.
I told you about my Dobby that i had, he was never tied but still was aggressive enough at night when alone. This is needed. But my present Boxer has not barked at a single person. Looks like i will need a ferocious breed to take care of him now.
Thats the most you can do as his nature is now set.

I doubt Siberian Husky in Bangalore.

The german shepherd could be a good guard dog..

That's a good thing you let him back at your parents place for him to enjoy and i hope you get a better one suitable for your place..

A Siberian Husky... and you are hoping one will come up for adoption? You are really optimistic buddy
Firstly a SH is very very rare India and secondly not recommended for our climate.
See thats the problem. What makes you think a SH is a ferocious breed. You will need to take a whole lot of care. These dogs do not agree with warm climates and they need oodles of exercise. Where do you get him a climate as in Alsaka to exercise?
My friend has one in Bombay and he keeps him 24x7 in the a/c. You should see when he comes back from his daily walk. He looks like hes going to collapse.
If one is available for sale, dont get it as you will be doing the poor dog a favour, as for adoption i hope you get one but seriously I think thats going to be very remote.
You need a guard dog, get a GSD, Rottweiler or a Dobberman. They are as ferocious as they get as its in their nature and if trained properly can be very good domestic pets too.

I myself am a hard-core Labrador lover. All my previous pets have been Labs.

Just my 2 cents of opinion.

By the way - GREETINGS to all Dog Lovers on this forum from SHOGUN!!

i have been in company with dogs since i was a child . we have two german shepherds back home and they are completely adorable. we always preffered them , my pa and mom just loves them and they r a part of family.

one thing i have noticed with other ppeople having dogs are unnecessary chaining them . they then tend to become more aggresive and could bite considering the other one as enemy . my dogs have never been chained till now not a single one of them till now. and they seem to be happy not gettin chained

You cannot leave my home without givin them a ride as soon as u open the car door they are in . hheh

a powerful stress buster for me just love them .
