Doberman. Breeding

The modern European Doberman is a wonderful healthy animal with a magnificent character. Over the past 20 years, the breed has become very popular. But every medal has a flip side: popularity does not always contribute to the improvement of the breed.

It is encouraging, according to the author, that under the influence of a set of tough measures (health research and testing) taken by the German Dobermann club (DV.e.

The main role in maintaining a dominant position in the pack is played, in particular, by body position and posture. Continue reading
