At the age of 2 years - far too early - Armin had already present Macho at an IPO 1 trial. External circumstances led to this decision to show the dog now. So you knew in advance that the trial could not run perfectly. And usually for trials: It comes different than you have expected. Also this time: The faults didn't happen there, where they have been expected. They happened just there, where they had not been suspected.
One really big fault in every part cost in tracking 4, and in the obedience, respectively protection work each about 7-8 points.
In the end it was but at least enough for 275 pts.

In autumn 2014 Macho passed the IPO 2 and a short time later the IPO 3 trial at various clubs. Just as his brother Index, before completing his 3rd year. With the performance Macho has already showed now, he convinced not only the judges. He was also able to inspire the audience in both trials.

 You can see a videos of his obedience and protection work on different helpers at training field and stadion on youtube or Working-Dog

On 29.+30. august 2015 Macho competed with 11 other dogs at the state championships of the LG Nordrhein in Cologne. Under demanding conditions he passed his 2nd IPO trial and reached the 4th place with a very good result. (In tracking he turned a little bit at two angles and missed the last object. In protection work he fought not only against the helpers, but also with the temperatures of 36°C. But then he was also qualified for the German championships 2015.

On 03.+04. oct. 2015 Macho competed with his brother Index at the DV DM (German Championship of the Doberman Club) which took place in Simmertal (Hunsrück). On the 1st day after a perfect track until the middle of the 4th line, he has made a big mistake. So he missed the track. But it comes better at the 2nd day: Macho shows a very good obedience but after a faulty connection Macho was disqualified. Bad luck!

At a foreign trial in november 2015, where 10 dogs participated, Macho was able to convince. A double-command and an unexecuted return-jump prevented unfortunately the exc. in obedience. But even so, he was qualified for the state championships 2016.
And that, in both senses:
Because over the winter Judith has handled him and in spring 2016 she participated with him at an IPO 3 trial. They won it with 96-93-98=287 pts and reached an excellent. Thus, even Judith was able to present Macho at the next state championships.

On 03.+04. sept. 2016 Macho competed with 12 other dogs at the state championships of the LG Nordrhein in Alsdorf. In tracking he registered the 2nd object but finally run over it, what took us the "exc.".

In obedience and protection work he reached 94 pts. You can watch videos on youtube. With 277 pts. he won this championship and is again qualified for the German championships.


Thanks to family Ueberbach for the pictures !

On 01.+02. oct. 2016 Macho competed at the DV DM (German Championship of the Doberman Club) which took place in Brackenheim. Our friend Sebastian travelled with us. We have had two nice holiday rooms and could enjoy the 2 days before the competition.

On Saturday afternoon we went to the tracking. The fields were difficult, but able to do. Macho has done his best and reached here - to our great relief - 95 P.

The luck of the draw was that we (once again) had to start on Sunday morning in the 1st group. Again Macho gave his best and reached 93 pts in the obedience; the 2nd highest score, as it turned out later.
In the 2nd part of the protection work he unfortunately couldn't hold the 1st grip, which meant that he was a little angry after the last exercise. So he touched the sleeve of the helper several times. Too bad, because it cost a lot of points.
In the final position, but we ended up in 5th position, with which we were very satisfied.
