As non profit organization, ADA promotes and preserves the Dobermann breed in the U.S. Its principal scope is to safeguard the natural talents of the breed, as a protection, family companion, and working dog.
ADA is the only Dobermann organization in the US that fellows the standard of the country of origin of the breed (Germany), approved and adopted by FCI at No. 143/14.02.1994/GB. To best recognize the natural characteristics of the Dobermann breed as utility dog, our association organizes shows, trials, and breed surveys, according to the rules of FCI and DV.
American Dobermann Association was developed to give the opportunity to all the Dobermann friends to use the technical support and experience of the entire Dobermann community, according to the German tradition. This relationship will improve our sport activity with shows, trials, and ZTPs internationally recognized.
"We are very thankful to the Creator for giving to human kind the direction, motivation, and help to build and preserve the Dobermann breed. The Dobermann beauty, working capacity, and helpful functionality for which the breed was suited, are instruments that can bring joy, peace, and friendship in our life."
