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.
