When at least one exceptional dog is present in the ring, surpassing in all respects the best representatives of one generation, judges can significantly underestimate the ratings of other dogs (even if they were previously rated quite high), but this should not be a reason for scandal: against the background of the best, even good fades.
In addition, from exhibition to exhibition, dogs can have a different “shape”, and handlers can show them to the judges better or worse; it should also be remembered that each expert interprets the standard in his own way, attaching great importance to one or another characteristic as the same musical score is interpreted differently by different performers, although they all scrupulously follow the instructions of the composer.
One should not be surprised at the different evaluations of the dog at various exhibitions: a high rating at one exhibition can be called into question at the next, and this is precisely the interest in participating in exhibitions again and again. If the result were predetermined, there would be no reason to visit the exhibition more than once. 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. It is worth recalling that such a large puppy, such as an eight-week-old Doberman, is risky and even dangerous while driving in a car to leave unattended and not to keep.
On the way home, talk with the puppy and remember that during the trip he should not be let out of the car. It is best to go straight home and arrange your puppy there as soon as possible. On arrival, feed him warm milk and let him meet you. Let the little Doberman wander around: after all, he feels very unusual and lonely – he lacks his mother, brothers and sisters.
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.

Many myths exist around Dobermans about his hysteria and immense anger. And it remains surprising why with all this in all countries fans of this breed are only added. Doberman is statistically the most popular breed in different countries.
Doberman, based on modern standards, is a fairly young breed, since this breed began to form only in the 19th century.
Doberman is one of the first breeds to be named after the founder, who was not a professional dog handler, and a talented self-taught F.L. Dobermann, who lived in the German city of Apold. At his disposal were a butcher’s dog, smooth-haired German pinschers, black-tan Manchester terriers and others, including mestizos. The result was strong, sensitive, strong and courageous dogs, which at first were called “dogs of Louis Dobermann” or “Thuringian pinscher”. Later, the first professional breeder, Otto Geller, proposed calling the dog a Doberman Pinscher. Officially, under this name the dog was recognized in 1898.
To date, FCI member countries support the name “Doberman”, and in the United States this breed of dog is still called (Doberman Pinscher). Continue reading
