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
Good day to all.
I really want to warn you and, perhaps, protect you from the mistake that I once made when buying a puppy. I’ll tell you all about Dobermans.
These are part of the text for those who want to know the background:
So what do you know about dog breeders? Many of you have seen gorgeous, powerful representatives of the Doberman breed. “The muzzle is black and tan. Like fire, my eyes are burning.

Doberman is friendly towards familiar people and animals, very devoted to the family and loves children. He is temperamental and alert. A properly trained dog demonstrates high working qualities, and with great pleasure.
The doberman’s inflated or nervousness is the same myth as his malice. But, like any myth, it has a basis under it. Doberman is a lively energetic dog that is sensitive to everything that happens around. The habitat plays a huge role in shaping the character of the puppy. If the family is constantly quarreling, contention, and the owners then express their irritation on the dog, then cloyingly affectionate with it, you can be sure that there the dog will grow up an unbalanced animal.
Do not start a Doberman to phlegmatic people who prefer to spend free time in a TV chair, or those who do not have enough time for walking with a dog. Doberman, especially young, needs physical activity and active walks, the lack of which will not only affect the shape of the dog, but also turn into leprosy and importunity at home. Continue reading
