I'm currently training with some police K9 folks. There is also a schutzhund club in the area and I've worked with the training director in the past.
I do have working or "sport" dobies. My current pup - both parents are schutzhund titled. His sire is thought to be one of the best out there right now.
Its not easy (and not cheap) to find a good dobie but I try. I've thought about other breeds, even talked on the phone to Carole a few months back about your dutchies. But we love the dobermann so ended up getting another after we lost two in the past year
I know about the neck, and will be extremely careful and will never put him in harms way. As we progress if we feel it becomes dangerous we will stop, or change directions. For me it has never been about competition - always about my dog. Our dogs have always been family members, sleep on our beds, go everywhere with us, etc
The SDA is starting back up - do you know anything about the new program?
