The Working Dobermann Collective (the “Collective”) is comprised of breeders, handlers, and training helpers of German-based working line dobermanns who reside in North America and share a passion for protecting the genetics and promoting the working heritage of these rare lines.
Our basic goals are to:
- Retain excellent working line genetics for future enthusiasts (based primarily on proven Weyermühle, Bayern, and Mooreiche lines)
- Help handlers to be successful and competitive in sport venues against other working breeds
- Work toward changing the general outlook that dobermanns cannot do well in protection sports
- Provide input and support to trainers, helpers, and handlers, who, through lack of experience with the breed, may not understand some of the differences important to their training
