It is known that any breed is divided into two groups: breeding and user. The East European Shepherd Dog was bred in the USSR in the service dog breeding clubs of DOSAAF “for the needs of the national economy and the army.”
Adolescents practiced all-around with service dogs, a military-technical sport promoted by DOSAAF. The selection of dogs for breeding also met user-friendly tasks. In addition to exhibitions, competition competitions were held, where the dogs received a total mark for the exterior and work on OKD (general training course) and a special course (usually ZKS – guard-guard service). Even an animal that was excellent in exterior, but without “working” qualities, could not get a breeding rating and access to breeding.
Thus, we can say that the breeding work was with a user group of the German Shepherd breed, called the East European Shepherd. Continue reading
If you take the Doberman puppy in the car, take someone with you to hold the puppy in his arms – he will be calmer. Take a couple of towels and an old sweater with you to wrap your puppy – it will be more convenient for him.

Now that, finally, you really have a beautiful, attractive Doberman puppy with meek eyes, a chubby belly and excessively large paws at home, give him the opportunity to get to know you. Let him walk around the room and discover her scent. When he comes to you, let him sniff you. Scratch the puppy’s ears and pat him, and then for a short period of time do not pay attention to him.

Doberman – breed history
The history of the Doberman Pinscher breed is shrouded in a veil of secrecy. Inveterate dog breeders disagree, because each of them relies only on rumors and assumptions. The breed is quite young, it was formed in the XIX century, approximately in the mid-70s.

Initially, the breed was to be called the Thuringian Pinscher (due to Thuringia, in which it was bred), but, after the death of Frederick, the dogs were called “Doberman Pinscher”. To “Doberman” was reduced in the middle of the XX century. Continue reading
