United Kingdom Dobermann Association 

The Dobermann was bred to not only be a companion, but a member of the

family. Loyal and affectionate while still maintaining the ability and drive to

protect. The loyalty and urge to protect makes these dogs an integral part of

the family unit and is a characteristic that still applies today. The UK

Dobermann Association is an independent association in the UK and a member

of the International Dobermann Club (IDC) with the aim to unite breeders,

owners and enthusiasts in order to promote ‘fit for breeding’ qualities across

all of the breed’s attributes, including, drive, health and temperament. Our aim

is to work alongside owners and breeders in order to reduce the number of

Dobermanns who end up in rescue, those who are at risk and to avoid these

dogs being needlessly euthanised by providing education, support and training.

The UKDA want to protect and promote the Dobermann in the UK.

Throughout the year, we organise and host a range of specialist events,

including: working trials, IGP taster days, fun days, competitions and we also

have youth teams and events for our junior members. Recently the UKDA held

the first ever Pursuit Tracking Dog Championships in November of 2019 which

was a huge success.

As an official association in the United Kingdom, we hold affiliations with

leading breed and activity organisations worldwide.

We are proud to be affiliated with the International Doberman Club (IDC) http://www.idc-dobermann.com/en/ and

have been active associates since 2008, making us one of the longest standing


We are the only IGP organisation within the United Kingdom to have Kennel

Club Accredited Instructors and hold strong affiliation to the United Kingdom

Kennel Club. We are also in the unique position of being able to train, educate

and license our own IGP judges and have over 70 FCI judges that we work with

currently. With our sponsors ForDogTrainers , we use the best equipment and

tools at our disposal.

We also hold the only Breed affiliation with the British Sleddog Sports

Federation https://www.thebssf.org.uk within the UK as many of our members are heavily involved within

a range of sporting disciplines.
