Watched this last night with my girls. They educate and explain the standards and what judges are looking at against these standards.

Things like:
-wedge head
-bottom jaw line
-top line
-having a square body
-convergence gait
-etc.....

really did not think I would be interested because I do not show Ragnar (that would be fun and funny). But I learned a lot and was very much interested on their thoughts.

I think Linda said it best: What’s all these standards for? They are strived for in order to make the most efficient working Doberman. It really did not make sense to me until she was explaining why convergence gait of front and back feet were so desired and why the back loin should be a certain distance from the last rib. It’s all about working dog efficiency.

Dylan Kipp was very impressive and explained things well.

Dylan Kipp was the other breeder I was seriously considering getting a pup from. She just had a litter and had 2-3 red females offering. Was chatting with her back and forth until I saw @JanS and @Rits new pups from Melrae. I was very much intrigued with the Melrae SA Doberman and not really looking for the elegant style of NA. Yes, Ragnar is NA but that asshat has something else in him also....

So it was Houston 5hrs away or Michigan 18hrs away. I am soooo glad Rits/Jan convinced me to go Michigan.

I only watched a little bit of each of these but they look very informative. If I have to go stay at a hotel in the near future I'll definitely watch the whole things when I can do it without the buffering.
