2020 & 2021 National Plans
DPCC National 2020
Unfortunately our plans to reschedule the 2020 National have been cancelled, as the all-breed club has cancelled their 2021 shows.
It is with sincere gratitude that we thank the BC club for their hard work in trying to reschedule the National weekend. We look forward to supporting their hosting of a National in the future.

DPCC Statement on BSL
The Doberman Pinscher Club of Canada is opposed to breed-specific legislation (BSL). We support legislation that promotes responsible dog ownership. Responsible breeding and ownership should result in dogs with solid temperaments in homes equipped to train and raise their breed of choice. Irresponsible pet owners should be penalized for their actions, not the dogs they exploit.
The City of Calgary has been praised internationally for its Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw. We applaud the City of Calgary and encourage other municipalities to consider Calgary’s bylaw as an alternative to breed banning.
Dobermans In Action
The Doberman breed is intelligent and athletic making them very versatile to participate in a variety of dog sports. Below are a few videos of our members and their dog’s participating in various sports. Videos may be enlarged by clicking on the lower right icon on the play screen.
