In addition to being cuddled, one of the fundamental needs of our dogs is to have a job, a reason to be. Whether it is fantasy tricks at home, conformation, canine sport, real work or an engaging activity with humans, the Doberman is a useful dog and is at his happiest when he feels… useful!
Our reproducers come from working lines mixed with show lines. They are more active, have more drive, have more bite, they are lively, alert and voluntary, more than the average Doberman. These are not the kind of dogs that would suit everyone. In Quebec, we have mostly American Doberman breeders and show lineage. As a general rule (there are always exceptions and nuances), they are dogs with less drive and are less active than their cousins the Europeans.
