Gina v. Furstenfeld" (black SchH.3) should be noted,  as her breeding to an average dog Lump v. Basterhof (black), the Bundessieger,  produced  "Argus v. Neroberg"(brown, Sch H 3), of the Kennel v. Rauhfelsen, Breeder: Willi Rothfuss, Stuttgart. This dog was very strong and compact with a very well-balanced (ausgeglichenem) character.

An important consideration in training the Doberman for IPO/Schutzhund is understanding their aggression/defense. In my opinion, our limited success in the sport has a lot to do with methods of training which do not take these qualities into consideration. References to the herding group (German Shepherds, Malinois) will be made throughout this article.

In the village of Apolda, in the state of Thuringen, in the southern part of Germany lived Louis Dobermann (1823 – 1894). Louis Dobermann was employed as a tax collector, a “dog catcher”, a night watchman, and as a supervisor for local slaughter houses. As a night watchman, Herr Dobermann found his need for a suitable dog to accompany him on his rounds. It is also not beyond imagining a protection dog would be desirable while working as a tax collector carrying large amounts of money.

Dobermanns in Germany in 1960's and 70's and their breeding utilisation

Below is a translated transcript from pages 22–63 from the book 'Zucht und Sport mit dem Dobermann' by Dobermann Judge and breeder Ottmar Vogel. In this section of the book Ottmar Vogel writes about prominent Dobermanns from the beginning of the 60's to the early 80's.

Chico v. Forell, descends from Odin v. Forell (Champion SchH2), whose father was Falko v. Hagenstolz (BDSG SchH1) and his mother was BDSG Cita Germania (from the very successful kennel "von Germania", Owner: Mr. August Schneider of Remscheid Germany). Chico's clear strengths were his very compact, square build with strong bone, very wide and deep chest, beautifully ascending topline, with a long upper arm as well as correct croup and tail set. The angulation of his hindquarters were regarded as somewhat steep. His pronounced broad head was strong yet long with a small arch however (Roman nose) on the nose bridge line. Chico's excellent build was established via his father Odin Forell and grandfather Falko, because Odin and Falko were also short powerful dogs, substantial and with good bone strength. Odin should have maybe had a somewhat longer head. Odin had a very thick coat of hair, although some of his offspring had even longer hair. In breeding however this wasn't of great importance.


History of Franckenhorst kennel


article by Barbara Bordas Edina (kennel di Satti, Hungary)


To get to know the Dobermann of today, we need to study its history. In this history, the kennel of Sonja David von Franquemont Freudenberg played a significant role: it gave the breed a great number of excellent specimens, without whom the breed wouldn't have developed to the current level. The von Franckenhorst kennel was founded by an Indonesian woman, Sonja David von Franquemont Freudenberg. Her first Dobermann didn't meet her requirements, therefore she was regularly attending the great European shows and got acquainted with an acknowledged German breeder, owner of the v. Eichenhain kennel, and bought a male from him: Ero v. Eichenhain, son of Andy v. Eichenhain and Wilma v. Fürstenfeld.

The next purchase was a female, Amarilda v. Wachenburg, puppy of Ero. In 1971, the first litter, a combination of Amarilda and Chico v. Forell, came into the world.



"M" LITTER, 1976 (Rondo v. Niddatal Olive Of Bamby's Pride): Marnix, Mohr
The second litter - by Rondo v. Niddatal and Olive - gave birth to Marnix.
"N" LITTER, 1976 (Guy's Hilo v. Norden Stam x Olive Of Bamby's Pride): Nimrod Hilo
Nimrod Hilo was born this year, too. After Don Dayan, he was the next significant milestone in the kennel's history. He was the only puppy in this litter. The sire was Guy's Hilo v. Norden Stamm (puppy of Bryan v. Forell), while the dam was Olive. Nimrod Hilo played an important role as the sire to the 'V' litter, which is to be the next milestone.
"O" LITTER, 1977 (Hassan v.Franckenhorst x Bryanstam's Joanja Jewel ): Odette
The year 1977 has brought Odette, a puppy of Hassan v. Franckenhorst and Bryanstam Joajna-Jewel.
"P" LITTER, 1977 (Bryan v. Forrel x Comtesse Charmaine v.Franckenhorst): Phaellas
The year 1977 has also brought Phaellas, puppy of Bryan v. Forell and Comtesse Chairman.
"R" LITTER, 1977 (Ringo Bingo v.Ellendonk x Olive Of Bamby's Pride): Ringo
Another litter came in 1977 bringing a puppy, Ringo v.Franckenhorst.
"S" LITTER, 1978 (Lothar v.Franckenhorst x Ira v.Franckenhorst): Salvador, Sabine
In 1978 arrived Salvador and Sabine, descendants of Lothar and Ira. Sabine is famous for being a vice world winner and an IDC Jugendsiegerin, and also the grandmother of Floijdt v. h. Savelsbos.

Graf Guido's nicest puppies were born in the Royal Bell kennel of Croatia: multichampion Ono, Larson, Lord, Lobo, world winner Lana, Lora...

Ginni v. Bayern

                                                                                                                                           Ginni v. Bayern

      I have a close friend whose greatest compliment - which he very infrequently bestows on anyone - is the appellation "a real dog man." 
      Over several years, I have come to understand that this endearing term means someone who loves dogs, working dogs, whatever kinds of dogs - regardless of breed or age. Someone who thinks, and more importantly, feels dogs, and has dogs in their blood. Whose idea of fun is training rain or shine, with the worst dog in the group, or the best. Who can be objective about his dogs, but remains deeply respectful to the innate wonder of each dog. Someone who gets tears in their eyes when they talk about the "greats" of yesteryear, not about the handlers, but about dogs - and not even their own. This term "a real dog man" most accurately describes Manfred Lerner of "v. Bayern" Dobermann Kennels.
