Looking for a good breeder!

Hi everyone!

So I just joined this site hoping to gain some knowledge in several aspects of owning a Doberman. For starters, the first bit of knowledge I am hoping to get is some assistance with is the name of a reputable breeder of a good "best friend" Doberman. I am not looking for a show dog or working dog, just one that is bread for a good temperament, good frame and good family health history. I am currently in the US but moving to Belgium in August and would like to start my search for a good Doberman puppy now. I don't mind traveling to go see perspective breeders and their puppies as long as I don't have to fly. I will drive several hours if needed. I will travel into Germany or other neighboring land border countries to Belgium to find the right breeder and the right puppy. Is there anyone that has knowledge of such a breeder(s) in the general area of Belgium, Germany, France, UK or Netherlands?

You might find people more knowledgeable about overseas breeders by contacting the United Doberman Club. Some of them import working dogs from overseas or have regular interactions with those breeders. I know the UDC has a Facebook page.

I do know someone with several Dobermans from Ascomannis Dobermans in Denmark. You might consider getting in touch with them. https://www.ascomannis.com/about

Hi Tlojak!
Firstly, you need to know that most countries in Europe have banned cropping and docking, and so any breeder you visit or get a puppy from in Europe will have a long tail and floppy ears. Some people prefer this, other people prefer c/d, some people don't care at all, but I find it worth mentioning. Secondly you should know that in Germany only dobermans that have passed the ZTP are allowed to breed, so they tend to breed for a temperament that has more working drive and energy, even within their showlines. Several other countries will have similar or the same criteria. These dogs can make great active pets, but they definitely tend to have more gas in the tank so to speak and a bit more torque than some of the show-bred dogs you might have known in the US.

If you are moving to Belgium I would first take a look at the breeders referred on the national breed club's website:
