Introduction  

This edition of the Doberman Pinscher Illustrated Standard is effective October 2006 and was prepared by the Illustrated Standard Committee of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America .

Its purpose is to be a resource for students of the breed whose experience varies from the long-time specialists to the novice.  It will prove useful to judges, potential judges, breeders, exhibitors, owners, and others who have an interest in learning about the correct attributes of the Doberman Pinscher.  

This revision to the Illustrated Standard contains all-new graphics and commentary.  The new graphics represent proper conformation as well as typical deviations.  The deviations are shown to provide information to aid the student in recognizing the ideal Doberman rather than leading the student to "fault judging.”  

The DPCA extends its thanks to the committee members who contributed many long hours and the benefit of their knowledge for the preparation of this booklet.

How to read this illustrated standard  

AKC Standard  

The information provided in the Illustrated Standard follows the sequence of the AKC standard. The section that is written with this font is quoted directly from the AKC standard. 

 

Following each section of the standard is a discussion of that section of the standard using this font.  The discussion supplements the written standard and provides additional information for the reader.   The text in this format embodies discussion and is not a part of the AKC standard.

 Graphics placed in each section illustrate the element of the standard that is under discussion.  Some of these graphics represent the DPCA’s ideal Doberman Pinscher.  Others represent deviations that are often seen in the breed.
