Hello so I'm here looking for help. I am in search of finding a breeder who breeds euros.
Little about me. First I have a german shepherd female. Shes very friendly, and not dominate in any way.
I have owned a euro doberman. After 1 year of having her I had to give her up. I recieved her at 4 months old from the breeder who was on his second breeding. After 1 week of having her she showed signs of aggression she was not friendly towards others. Wasnt long till she was lunging at people! If unable to get at them she bit me or my girlfriend. It was like she saw red and went blank. She was amazing with us and my gsd. She even was ok with other dogs. But people was a no go. Right away I tried many things to nip this in the butt and had no success I would bring her in public and ask people to meet her and give them treats to give her I did this a couple days a week. I saw trainers, and everything but nothing got better only worse. I believe she had serious fear issues and no confidence. Sucks I gave her back to the breeder after bonding with her. She had a dark face and was gorgeous. I put alot of my life into her and trying to help her be the best dog. That was over 2 years ago. I honestly think of her everyday. The breeder told me he found a good fit and shes doing ok.
Now I'm ready to find a new dobe and breeder. But I'm in no rush either has to be right fit. Temperament and confidence are two things I am looking for the most and a Male this time around. Need help on recommendations for breeders please.
Well that makes little sense to me when I owned a people aggressive dog from the jump of her having her.
Americans are not for me in my experience around both. Americans dont have the look, very jumpy skittish and personality is different. I been around euros with awsome confidence, and personality.
I'm a little confused, since in your first post you said your "Euro" pup was aggressive and had a poor temperament.
If temperament and confidence are the most important (frankly, I'd also put health at the top of the list), I think what you need to prioritize is simply finding an ethical breeder, whether that be someone breeding European or American lines. The generalizations you make about American bred dogs are grossly mistaken, as much as we often like to generalize European bred dogs by assuming they will have certain temperaments. You can find many poorly bred European bred dogs here in the US, because they are "trendy."
If you are not in a rush, take the time to really evaluate breeders. Many of the people breeding European lines here in the US are not prioritizing temperament or health, and are simply following trends and making money off them, so you need to be extra careful if that's the type of dog you decide to look for. Make certain you are looking at reputable, ethical breeders. You may want to start with the United Doberman Club as a resource. Most good Euro breeders are working line breeders and are competing with their dogs in sport.
If you decide to consider American bred dogs, you can, in fact, find good bone and substance, and good temperaments as well.
Good luck in your search.
