The Doberman Club
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.
One could end on this optimistic note, but the situation that has developed in the breeding of Dobermans at present, their catastrophic “overproduction” when the supply noticeably exceeds the demand for puppies, is simply tragic. If this problem is not solved today, work on changing and improving the type of breed can drag on indefinitely. Today, all clubs are faced with the problem of selling breeding products, “timely and decent puppies. Sometimes it seems that the peak in breed popularity has passed and demand has fallen. This is not so – the main reason for the litter to stay out is the aggravated discrepancy between a more or less stable demand and an unreasonably increased mass of proposals from club breeders. Doberman has always been loved and is loved. This breed is one of the most popular and desired for keeping in a family.
But what is happening on the “market” of puppies is not normal. A huge number of clubs are engaged in breeding dogs and produce “extras”, upsetting the balance between supply and demand, necessary for normal breeding work. There is absolutely no difference between the cost of puppies from the “tribal” and “user” groups of the breed.
A solution to this problem is possible, for example, under the patronage of the Russian Cynological Federation and its constituent structures. Measures should be developed to regulate the number of producers, a “test tolerance for breeding” is introduced, selection criteria are established for membership in a particular breed group (pedigree and usable).
Naturally, this is not an easy task. Without drastic measures, one cannot count on a speedy solution to the problem. Surely there are opponents of this idea, but real breeders and true Dobermanists understand the need for major changes. Only then can we engage in civilized and dignified work for the good of our beloved Dobermans.
The Doberman Club of the Moscow City Service Dog Breeding Club was re-organized in 1991, 20 years after the Dobermans were declared an “unofficial breed” and removed from the DOSAAF system. Since 1971, pedigree work with the breed has been carried out within the framework of amateur societies. The main centers in the Moscow region were the Moscow City Society of Dog Breeding Lovers (MGOLS) and the Podolsk City Club of Dog Breeding (PGKS).
The magnificent Love Sajn obtained as a result of the cross-country from Ajax and Jim Vesta, imported from Holland, was an indisputable achievement of the breeders of the Moscow State Pedagogical University (Yerusalimsky, Kameneda). Tied up only once and died during childbirth, she left almost nothing after herself. Only two of her daughters were subsequently used in the breeding of the PKS (Dale and Daf-Joanna). From Maxim-Viol and Daf-Joanna was born my Fij-Mauri (Mira), who became the ancestor of a large family, which gave a huge number of excellent manufacturers. All her descendants in their nicknames have the prefix “Le Malin”. Fiji Mauri was awarded the title of “Best Maker” by a high class of dogs; twice she was awarded the Elite breed class.
