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”.

Given these details, you should choose comfortable shoes (athletic shoes, such as sneakers, non-slip soles) or rubber boots (if the exhibition takes place outdoors in rainy weather); wear a tracksuit or a comfortable suit for the weekend.

However, they have less dark eyes and a smooth head line.
But their neck is long with a refined bend. Their bones are weaker than those of European types. The elongation of the body depends on the length of the lower back. But the color of the American dogs is light, and they have wide light tan. American Dobermans are recognized as the most skillful and elegant. European type As for European Dobermans, significant differences will not follow here. Regarding temperament – these dogs are more wary of people, of course, they trust the owners, but show less affection than the American. The view of the European representative is larger, muscular, with a deep chest. They have pronounced: the line of the head, dark eyes and a strong lower jaw.
