It is traditionally believed that the Doberman is an aggressive and dangerous dog that should be bred as a pet only after serious thought. Especially if you have a family. However, this is not quite true. The thing is that over the past few decades there have been many dishonest breeders who do not monitor the quality of their population.

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.
