There may be an “awful lot of people” participating in obedience but how successful are they?
There are only two Dobes competing in WT at the moment in the lower stakes and there has not been a Dobermann in ticket stakes for at least 10 years if not longer.
There are a couple more dobes in Schutzhund than trials but they spend a great deal of time failing or being disqualified I am afraid.
ps I forgot Chancepixies kennel but they are the exception to the rule.
Only 4 Dobes have ever achieved Schutzhund 3 in the UK.
These are just facts.
and Congrats to Martin & Bracco on achieving Schutzund 3 ;D
