Bahnhof's most successful Schutzhund litter ("C") was out of Bismark vom Donautal, SchH3, IPO3 MANY TIMES!
Donautal Dobermans were bred by Storm and Bill Bergin:
Diana von der Rappenau, SchH3, CDX, Can CD, WAC (Major Pointed): Foundation Dam of Donautal. Diana's maternal grandsire was Eick vom Eschenhof.
In 1993, when Diana died, the following statistics had been compiled for her progeny. Many went on to complete more titles.
Ajax, Bismark's half-brother, and his Owner/ Handler Rebecca Rothman, competed in the
1992 FCI in Slovenia, earning 86 points in protection.
Baretta vom Donautal, SchH3, Bismark's litter-sister, with her Owner/Handler Gail Dodd at the 1994 UDC Nationals in Bowling Green, KY.
Mister was a full brother to Bismark, out of a subsequent litter. He earned his SchH 3 and competed nationally several times with his Owner/Handler, Don Marlowe, pictured above at the 1994 UDC Nationals in Bowling Green, KY.
In this sample of trial results, you can see how Bismark dominated the protection phase of schutzhund in his day. He was high in protection of many dogs of many breeds. You can also see Elka vom Schonenberg's excellent scores.
Donner von Adlercrest, SchH3, CDX: Foundation Sire of Donautal.
Storm Bergin was the breeder of Donautal Dobermans. She and her husband Bill promoted true working dogs. Bill sold excellent working dog equipment. He was often set up in a booth at all the major working dog competitions. Due to infighting among working Doberman Breeders, despite her stellar record in breeding excellent working Dobermans, arguability the most successful working Dobreman breeder in the US, she left Dobermans and went into working Giant Schnauzers.
