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.

If you remember the proverb that “do not drink water from your face”, then you will agree with whatever beautiful or highly pedigree dog is – we don’t live with the exterior and the pedigree documents, but with her soul and her character. Therefore, in order to get to know the Doberman from the inside, to find out his family portrait, 29 owners of dogs of this breed were interviewed. The presented results, as it seems to the author, can characterize not only the features of existing dogs, but also reflect the likelihood of manifestation of signs of varying degrees of severity in your puppy, in your future dog.

Half of the dogs (51.7%) are characterized by a lack of aggressiveness towards children, but it is weak in 27.6% of dogs, in moderate – in 13.8%, and a significant degree of severity – in 6.9% of dogs. Continue reading
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. Believe me, it’s very difficult to run next to the dog in a narrow skirt and stilettos, or to leave the exhibition in white trousers covered with dog hair and in greasy spots (even if the dog is cleanly washed, it has a thin greasy layer on its coat that provides protection and shine )
In addition, you should prepare psychologically for the competition … The leash is an excellent guide to feelings and emotions – if you are nervous and unsure of yourself, the dog will immediately feel it and will be just as excited, naughty …
A little “stress” can be “woken up” by a melancholy animal, and, on the contrary, you should talk to a dog that is easily excitable, as calmly as possible, gently caressing it to maintain its serene state until the end of the exhibition. Sometimes it is required to sharply pull the dog dry and firm “no!” and a jerk of a leash to stop the slightest manifestation of excessive stubbornness or nervousness at the root. Continue reading
