Hi Every one :D

I am in the process of looking for a doberman pup to do schutzhund with. I will be joining the Toronto Schutzhund Club. This will be my first time getting into this sport, however I'm not a newbie to dogs or training. I've been running a pet sitting business for the last 10yrs or so and have cared for many different dogs. The dobermans have always made a special impression on me with the increadible love they offer, they're beauty, intelligence, and such increadible fun factor.

Now I just have to find myself one! :D If any one can offer any suggestions on breeders, I would appreciate that. I have a few breeders in mind currently. I'm still learning as I go so to speak, so I'm trying not to rush. I want to pick a dog I will be happy with.

I have one dog living with me right now, a 1yr old female maltese named Nismo. Don't picture a typical fifi fufu groomed and proper maltese :) She's an all terain, 4x4, litte rocket with no limits. She'll run through mud, climb fallen trees, swim through the creek, balance on a slippery river rock... She can easilly outlast some of the big dogs while on the trail with me. Here she is on the trail with one of my clients' dog.

Welcome, Marta! We definitely have a few very experienced Dobe enthusiasts on the site. Thomas Barriano and Elly Elsenaar are the ones off the top of my head...both are quite passionate about their dobes (they are pretty ones, check out their bios and stuff in the photo gallery), Thomas has at least a few he's titled at advanced Sch levels (among other sports) and may help you find an appropriate dog. Shoot them a PM, both very friendly folks.

I already know Elly off a dobe board, she directed me here :)
The Dutch are sneaky that way. :twisted:

By my count we're increasing in numbers :p
You can blame Selena for that, she should be on the payroll :wink:
