New Facebook Group for Members!

Posted on Apr 9, 2016 in E-Howler

New Facebook Group for Members!

Good morning/afternoon DPCC members,

It is with great pleasure that we wish to announce the launch of a closed Facebook page, just for you! This is a separate page from the DPCC public Facebook page, and will be reserved for members of the DPCC only.

The creation of this page will allow us to come together as a community, to discuss Club business, exchange ideas, and discuss any other topics relating to the Doberman Pinscher.

To join the group, you must be a member of the DPCC and follow this link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/203104193395097/.  Once you are on the group page, you will see in the upper-right corner a button that says “Join Group”.  Click on this button, and you’re done! An admin will verify your membership status and approve your request.

To find the page again at any time, simply type “DPCC” into your Facebook search bar, and select “Doberman Pinscher Club of Canada (DPCC) Members” from the drop down of suggested pages. Even better, add us to your favourites!

We encourage you to join us in forming a tight knit community where all things Doberman can be discussed in a positive, healthy and safe environment! Your participation is what makes this work!

If you have any questions or require any assistance, please contact the Facebook admin at facebook@dpcc.ca.

See you there!
Your DPCC Executive

Support Project Dog – Research Vestibular Disease

Posted on Dec 3, 2015 in E-Howler

In 2014 Project Dog (A US Research Group)  suspended DNA testing for this disorder to focus on evaluating all data collected and to prepare a manuscript for a scientific journal.  Project Dog had identified a “marker” which they believe indicates whether a dog carries the genetic marker for Vestibular Disease (commonly known as Dings).

The Project Dog Research Group requires financial support before they can continue with the testing and research of this disorder.  Project Dog estimates they will require approximately $30,000 in funding to finish the research. This may seem like a large amount, but if 1,500 Doberman lovers each donated $20 it would be possible. The greater the number of people who donate the lighter the financial burden for all.

Project Dog is an American research group.  DPCC is willing to collect Canadian funds from our members and then issue a money order in US funds directly to Project Dog.  Project Dog is currently working on an online platform to receive donations in a variety of payment methods. They are hoping to have this established early 2016.

All monies received for the Doberman DINGs project will be held for that specific project.

The DPCC Board will be sending a donation of $500 Can. We encourage our members to also donate towards this worthy cause. We can make a difference for the future of our breed. Donations can be made on-line at the dpcc store or by e-transfer to treasuer@dpcc.ca.
