thankfully i am only considering breeding based on partly on others on top of myself. every time i would start thinking about neutering him i would somehow run into a breeder who would go over him and ask about his health and intelligence etc and if i was planning on breeding him. that then bought him more time for of to think and learn. there is more that i an basing it on of course but my next thing is to somehow go to a show and see what else they think.CoAl-s-Mom said:I would suggest to you to go to dog shows. Hang out with some Doberman people and try to get a mentor. Just because Loki's lineage has good temperament and health still does not mean that he should bred. Again, only the best of the best should be bred. A mentor would be able to give you an unbiased opinion of your dog, because we all love our dogs and think they should reproduce. I had Cole neutered when he was a puppy because I don't want the responsibility of more Doberman puppies in the world. Going by temperament and health most would want to breed him, but he isn't conformationally correct. But I love him with all my heart and he has been fantastic with my 2 kids and a great family pet. That is what most Dobermans should be.

whiteandblue said:but firbretha... we dont want stupid ppl and we damn sure dont want them cloning or having kids... but they do and you cant stop it nor can the government obviously so just like stupid ppl... that isnt a good justification...second all..
the only thing below standard is anyone that would talk crap about a doberman or well any dog... im pretty particular about all breeds not just dobes. ... love animals in general.
