is a valuable resource for all Doberman fanciers. Its continuing
value is related to the amount of accurate information it contains.
DPCA members are allowed and encouraged to enter information about
dogs in the database. Members should enter all known information
about dogs they have owned or bred. Members should link their own
dogs to littermates, parents and progeny. Members are also encouraged
to upload pictures and submit vignettes.
Please be mindful when thinking about adding date and cause of death on a dog that is not yours.
As you can imagine, it's devastating to lose your beloved dog. Many people need some time to be ready to "finalize" their
dog and wait until they are ready to add this to their dogs page. Just because you see it on an email list or on FaceBook doesn't
mean the owner is ready. And if not done promptly it doesn't mean they've forgotten! ASK FIRST!
Members are also welcome to add generally-known information (for
example, color, sex, call name) of dogs they know. Published information
in sources such as periodicals, websites, dog show catalogs, the AKC and OFA websites, stud books, etc.
can also be entered. Please double check all entered information
to ensure accuracy. Please do not enter anything that is speculative
or anecdotal (cannot be confirmed by a published report). If using
public information, please be sure to include the source of the
information in the entry.
Please do NOT copy and paste from copyrighted websites without
permission of the owner (entering information found on websites
is permissible). Do not reproduce posts to email lists or private
correspondence without the author’s permission.
