Dog shows, or “conformation” events concentrate on the distinctive features of purebred dogs and help to preserve these characteristics by providing a forum for evaluating breeding stock.
Dobermans are bred and judged against a blueprint established by the Doberman Pinscher Club of America. This blueprint or breed standard captures the ideal vision for everything the Doberman should be – inside and out.
