The Dobermann was bred to protect us, now we must protect the Dobermann.

The United Kingdom Dobermann Association (UKDA) is an independent club in the UK for the promotion and protection of the Dobermann and member country of the (IDC) The International Dobermann Club along with about 36 other member countries, giving the UK a voice on the world stage!
The club was formed to unite breeders, owners, enthusiasts and all those with the breed’s best interest at heart and to promote a form of ‘fit for breeding test’ in the UK.
We have a love and a passion for our breed and we will work alongside other organisations, enthusiasts, breeders, professionals and the general public, to reduce rescue, irresponsible breeders, educate owners and the number of dogs that are being needlessly destroyed in order to protect and promote the Dobermann in the UK!
