Dobe's are a competitive breed to show. It depends on where you are located and what kind of money your looking to spend. Are you looking for an all out full time PHA or are you looking for something a little more low key? I could certainly recomend some to you that are half way affordable and could also give you an honest evaluation of how your dog would do in the ring. As long as you don't mind them being honest, they are nice about it but they will tell you if your dog stands a chance or not. And I know Dobe's, it takes a one whale of a dog to do any good.
