A Brief History Of The Birmingham & District Dobermann Club
Celebrating 25 Years of Kennel Club Breed Club Recognition in 2011
The Birmingham & District Dobermann Club was formed in the early 70's by a group of Dobermann enthusiasts in a room over a pub in Birmingham. The Club became a KC recognised training club in 1979, when the Club held weekly classes in obedience and ringcraft training. Proving its success, in 1986 the Kennel Club registered the Birmingham Dobe as a Breed Club.
