I got really interested in competing chase in sports such as OB, rally, agility, and a few tests such as the CGN and WAE. I was also looking for anyone with a Holter that I could rent out within Ontario. So I thought, the organization who would have the most answers would be the Doberman Pinscher Club of Canada.

Over the past two months I've been trying to contact them on several separate occasions, once was to ask where I could possibly go to a WAE and if they had a Holter to rent out. Three emails later, and one phone call, no answer.

So, Has anyone had luck with contacting this club? Can anyone help me with my questions?

I found a boxer breeder in Ontario that rents out her Holter. I emailed her about my boy, and asked if it was possible to rent it, no answer.

Is there anyone in Ontario that knows where the WAE is usually held, and do they know anyone who rents out their Holter??

You can also contact the University of Guelph and join their doberman heart study. It used to be run by Dr. Ogrady, but I think he retired. But it is still going and they are amazing there. You can echo and holter for about $60. I will be adding Rudy to it when he gets old enough.

is Tanners breeder a CKC member?

is Tanner from a CKC registered breeding?

if not it would be difficult for the CKC to help find her breeder.

I tried to get into that last year, but no one responded.

I didn't know the WAE was only in the states:confused: guess I'll be taking a trip to Michigan :)

Yes she is CKC registered However I could not find her breeder, all I know is that she is from Digby, Nova Scotia. The rescue that helped me said the breeder was no longer breeding and possibly moved to another province.

Tanner's, so you do have the name of the person who bred Tanner?

Sometimes the CKC registered breeders in your area will be the best ones to give you information on anyone whom has bred Dobes in your area.

Does Tanner have a tattoo................micro-chip.?

Are you close to NY? Tappan Zee hosts a WAE
DPCTZ Home

I'm pretty sure it's only offered in the US but I would still double check.
Michigan is closer, it's about a 5 hour trip. I honestly thought the WAE was worldwide, or at least different variations of it. I was just going to take it for exposure and experience for chase, I don't think he would pass it.

You learn something new everyday :)

Have u tried contacting the Greater Mid Ontario Doberman Pinscher Club? They are approachable and do belong to the DPCC as a chapter club.
Also there is occasionally a WAE in Canada as they held one at Long Sault with the specialties.
Good luck.

From what I've heard, Guelph has dramatically raised their prices for the holtering they offer as part of their program. I know Maryanddobes is shopping around to buy her own holter, as it's no longer cost effective for her to use Guelph. You also have to have a certain number of dogs to become a "group" to participate.

I'm a member of the DPCC, DPCA, GMDF..... If you want to email me I can try and help you. My address is [email protected]

Guelph's OVC heart study is now $100. However they also rent the holter (which was $70 when we did it but I have heard is now $150, possibly more).

As part of the GMDF I brought forward the motion to have the club purchase a holter for rent however it's still in the working stages. I did bring the same request forward two years ago, and it was not put through.

I really think the GMDF as a club should be doing more for its members and this is one way. We also have a website - Home and you can even join our club as well. We are a very small group, and there is a variety of people - some show, some do not. Some joint just for the newsletter :).

You could also look for a T.T. if you want something along the lines of a WAE- and you can find those listed at Canuck Dogs: Your source for Canadian dog event information online..

I don't recall Guelph putting a number of the amount of dogs you must have to participate. As a matter of fact, I had one of my pet owners go just two weeks ago, with no issue. I think they have a minimum age, two perhaps, but that was it.

The minimum number of dogs is for sending the Holter out a considerable distance - it wasn't cost effective for them to mail out the Holter for one dog so the minimum was 3. It wouldn't matter for someone who goes there personally.
