I had my sweet dobie girl for ten years. I probably won't be any help at all because I haven't owned a GSD yet (got a puppy in the wings!) and also because my girl was not a typical doberman. But if someone asks about dobies, I can't help but talk about her.
Dobies do shed, it's just not as noticeable as other dogs. We have dark colored leather furniture, so no hair ever showed on that. Any other material probably would have collected a dark layer of dobie hair in its weave. Also, when we would move her crate away from the wall, there would be quite a pile of hair that had collected behind it.
We did obedience and agility....but just for fun. We never went to any trials or anything.
She was a lover...loved people, loved other dogs, loved cats. Squirrels, rabbits, and small birds, though, were all the enemy. And for some reason, she loved to chase down and corner snakes. She never attacked those...just cornered them and barked maniacally until I would come and rescue the poor creature. LOL
I miss my girl...
