Welcome to DT. If you want a show quality puppy a breeder is going to expect you to show the dog. The difference between a "pet" and "show" puppy would be basically unrecognizable to your average Joe or even to most doberman people. Reputable "Euro" breeders are really few and far between so I would suggest you look for an American "show" breeder. These breeders generally do extensive health testing prior to breeding and breed dogs with correct conformation and stable temperaments.
The DPCA.org breeder referral list is a great place to start your search for a breeder. You may also want to go to a local all breed AKC dog show to talk to doberman owners, breeders, and exhibitors. In addition, there may be a DPCA chapter club in your area that you could make contact with who could give you some breeder names or people to contact.
Where are you located?
