Judges Education

Mission Statement: The mission of the Judge’s Education Committee is to extend knowledge to active and aspiring judges, mentors, breeders, conformation and performance exhibitors, handlers, and the general fancy.  Dedicated and knowledgeable DPCA members will create an educational environment providing accurate and responsive materials at shows, seminars, and on the internet.

This web site is established to provide information and to be a study guide to those wishing to become judges of the Doberman Pinscher, or those wishing to hone their judging skills for this breed.

The site is organized in the following manner:

The Articles link leads you to articles by breeder-judges on the standard and judging the Doberman as well as a brief description of the background of the Doberman Pinscher.

The Photos link provides photos of very good representatives of the breed in both sexes, as well as photos of excellent heads.  All four colors are represented. In addition, there are photographs of Dobermans in their various capacities as companions and as WORKING dogs. This is provided so the judge can appreciate the working aspect of the Doberman and why the standard is written as it is. These photos are in the ‘function’ section of the photo page.

The Events link leads to a list of upcoming specialty shows for those who want to attend a specialty in your area. In addition, information on our National Specialty seminar may also be presented. The National seminar information is available on the current year’s National page on this website.

The Mentor link will lead you to a list of DPCA approved mentors that you can contact for ringside mentoring or for breed mentoring discussions.  Use this link in concert with the Events link to find both a specialty to attend in your area and a nearby mentor.
