European Doberman Breeders

Hello,

I am looking to find a male European doberman that would be available this summer, somewhere around June-August in a perfect world. Really looking to spend no more than around $3,000 if possible.

I am specifically looking for a dog with working lines that would be fit for protection and bite sports. Protection training would be this dogs main focus. I have found an excellent trainer/mentor nearby that I will be working with. Medium-high drive and willingness to please are important qualities I am looking for.

I feel like I have searched and searched for breeders for the past few months, but have't found the right one. Every time I feel as if I found "the one", I will read reviews and there will always be a negative comment.

Does anyone have recommendations for a good breeder? Location really isn't an issue. I am willing to import a dog as well.

Not sure how to edit, but I should clarify:
Schutzhund/bite sports would be my primary focus with this dog. Protection training would stem off of that.

I understand there is not much difference in European vs. American size wise. I am not looking for an off standard, over sized dog. I personally like the stockier face of the European's. Also I have spoken to some people who do compete in bite sports with dobermans and they have told me European's tend to excel more and have a more confident attitude.

Also I currently have an American doberman, though she is my first, but I do have experience with the breed. We are a moderately active home, but we are able to accommodate activity wise as needed for the dog. In addition to bite sports the dog would be trained in things such as bikejoring and canicross. My current doberman goes to training class 1-3 times a week with constant training at home/in public, so our new dog would be given a job and would have the opportunities to work. I understand that a working dog is not fit for lazy, pet homes.

One of the best places to start is the United Doberman Club's breeder referral page, https://uniteddobermanclub.com/

Also, the Working-Dog website, https://www.working-dog.com/, but many of these are foreign.

The United Doberman Club also has a Facebook page, which might be helpful to you: https://www.facebook.com/uniteddobermanclub/

I know Julie Stade was thinking about breeding a litter this fall. With the craziness in the world, I don't know if she still will be, but you might want to reach out to her. BJF Dobermans.

Thank you! Does anyone have opinions regarding Unreachables Kennel? The kennel owner is Dejan Milošević and is located in Serbia, but ships his dogs out of Czech Republic. I've noticed that a few breeders I have looked into are friends with him on FB, this ups his street cred a little. This upcoming litter is between Fort Bellators Petra and Zews Unreachables.

Why not purchase a dog from here in the states? Not speaking to this breeder in particular, but there are a lot of bad things that can happen with purchasing a puppy overseas and importing- scams, different puppy than you picked, puppy being sick, no papers, etc. It's not something I would chance when we have many great breeders here to choose from.

Oh, I would prefer a dog from the states if I could find the right one. Especially with borders closing it is likely I importing animals will be cut off as well in the near future. Just feel like I have exhausted all of my options, though I know this isn't true. Have had a hard time finding a breeder with the type of dog I am looking for.

You might talk to kansadobe who posted in this thread. They have a Euro cross litter right now I believe.
