If you need to buy a Doberman puppy, read this article carefully. In it we will indicate the main points that you need to pay attention to when choosing a dog of this breed, which in the future will be assigned certain requirements. So, how to choose a Doberman puppy correctly?
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”.

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

The global “restructuring” in the Dobermann breed that began in the late 80s in Russia reminds me of the situation in which the East European Shepherd (VEO) breed was previously found. At that time, I worked as a senior livestock specialist in the Moscow City Club of Service Dog Breeding (MGKSS) and, as a service, talking with owners of dogs of all service breeds that our club was breeding, I witnessed the changes taking place in the breed of VEO.
Imported “German” shepherds (mainly from the German Democratic Republic, Poland, Czechoslovakia) were occasionally introduced into the breeding of VEO before, but the addition of their blood was purely symbolic in nature, neither the type nor the exterior of the VEO changed significantly.
