SELECTION OF A DOBERMAN BREED PUPPY – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW FIRST
If you have already made the final decision that the Doberman is a breed for your family, you only need to find where to buy a puppy and choose it correctly. And this, as you know, is not an easy task, especially for those who are just starting to get acquainted with this breed. In order to avoid the mass of some common mistakes, you first need to understand that you cannot compromise – make your choice, content with a poorly trained, unhealthy poor model from a breeder from a neighboring yard or a puppy born on a “dog farm”. This is exactly what nurseries are called, where puppies of several breeds are produced and raised for sales. The best kennel is always the one where only one breed of dog is promoted. In this case, all the owner’s attention is focused only on its development, which helps to achieve serious results. Continue reading
It is traditionally believed that the Doberman is an aggressive and dangerous dog that should be bred as a pet only after serious thought. Especially if you have a family. However, this is not quite true. The thing is that over the past few decades there have been many dishonest breeders who do not monitor the quality of their population. In addition, there is widespread free crossbreeding and improper upbringing.
However, if you buy a dog in a trusted kennel, she has a good pedigree, you took responsibility for choosing a puppy and raise him correctly, this will be a great friend for the whole family.

Initially, breeding in the group of her descendants (daughters) was carried out according to the principle of working with the family. The role of a good breeder in breeding the breed is very large, the best families sometimes in terms of breeding value rise to the level of factory lines.
Leading breed families are a source of excellent producers, future founders of independent lines and families. It is from prominent bitches that many valuable breed lines originate. It is unfortunate that some breeders, forgetting about this, pay insufficient attention to working with families, striving only to lay new lines and work with them.
By the time of the formation of the Doberman club in MGKSS, we already had enough dogs (mostly bitches) to work on our own.
Prior to the period of “perestroika” in the breed, males of aboriginal (“Moscow”) blood, Ural dogs, producers from socialist countries (Baikal, GeraMarat, Yuff, Willy, Aman-Patricia, Lax Roy, Torrek f. D. Were used as producers in the family). Edeltane, Aran-Sharkan Minos, etc.). Continue reading
Among other things, the breed is also forced to change by inter-examination conducted at almost all central exhibitions in the country, of course, when we entrust it with authoritative, world-famous judges, specialists in our breed.
The exhibition, for true connoisseurs and qualified “breeders”, is primarily a livestock event, a demonstration and analysis of the results of pairings and the selection of worthy animals for further breeding. Foreign experts, working in our rings, still make discounts on the transitional moment in becoming a type in our country, but the leaders in the rings are undoubtedly representatives of the “new” Dobermans, who meet the tastes of judges and the requirements of the international standard.
Our task is to make the domestic Doberman competitive in Europe and the World, to conduct breeding correctly, without repeating the mistakes made in breeding other breeds (I didn’t accidentally talk in detail about the German and East European Shepherd dogs), and the support and help of foreign Dobermanns will speed up the decision this task.

It is known that any breed is divided into two groups: breeding and user. The East European Shepherd Dog was bred in the USSR in the service dog breeding clubs of DOSAAF “for the needs of the national economy and the army.”
Adolescents practiced all-around with service dogs, a military-technical sport promoted by DOSAAF. The selection of dogs for breeding also met user-friendly tasks. In addition to exhibitions, competition competitions were held, where the dogs received a total mark for the exterior and work on OKD (general training course) and a special course (usually ZKS – guard-guard service). Even an animal that was excellent in exterior, but without “working” qualities, could not get a breeding rating and access to breeding.
Thus, we can say that the breeding work was with a user group of the German Shepherd breed, called the East European Shepherd. Continue reading
