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
Almost all dog breeds cultivated in the USSR over the past decades, today are changing their “face” improving type, exterior, behavior; In breeding, new producers are used, representatives of the best plants in the world. Most breeders voluntarily and enthusiastically seek to obtain modern type offspring from their dogs that meet the requirements of FCI international standards.
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.

At the request of the Doberman magazine, I asked several questions to the owner of the nursery, Erica Sokol.
– A few words about Tahi and your family.
– Tahitotfalu – a small town with a population of 300,000 inhabitants located on the Danube River, 25 km from Budapest. The river divides the village at the bottom of the part. Tahi is a very beautiful hilly area, it is a popular holiday destination. In summer, many vacationers from all over Hungary come here for the weekend. We live in a large private house with a huge garden, it is ideal for keeping and kennel a large number of dogs. We like to live in this cozy rural place, which at the same time is located very close to the capital. We have two children – 12-year-old Adam and 10-year-old Christian, they, like us, love dogs, they grew up next to them.
In 1981, a puppy, a Doberman bitch, was presented to us for a wedding. It was our first dog, which, frankly, did not differ in its outstanding exterior, but we loved it very much. Once we drove her to an exhibition. The atmosphere of the exhibition made a great impression on us, and since then we have not missed a single Hungarian dog show. Two years later, in the litter of the first dog our champion was born. Continue reading
