Last year we created our own Dobermann Rescue Calendar featuring our rescue dogs, as opposed to buying in a generic Dobermann one, and we are planning to do the same for 2020.

In order to be able to do that however, we need some amazing photos of our wonderful rescue furbabies! So we’re running a photo competition to get you to send in your best photos for a chance to get your rescue dobe featured in the 2020 Dobermann Rescue Calendar!

How to Enter

To enter take a photo of your Rescue Dobermann following the guidelines below and email it to along with the name of your dog and the month and year that you adopted him or her.

Photo Guidelines:

  • Photo must be taken in a landscape orientation ⇔ NOT portrait ⇕, OR square
  • Photo dimensions must be 3,580 pixels wide by 2,550 pixels high at a resolution of 300 dpi or higher (use a digital camera if possible, as opposed to a phone). These are minimum requirements for the printers. Photos of this quality are usually several MB in file size each.
  • Photo should clearly feature your dog as the main element of the shot.
  • Try and capture your dog’s character in the image

See below for examples of the type of images that work well, and some that don’t:

The images above would all work well because the rescue Dobe is clearly featured, the photos are in focus with good lighting, and there are no erroneous objects in the frame.

There’s also a useful article on how to take great photos on your phone here: www.wikihow.com/Take-a-Good-Picture-On-Your-Camera-Phone


Sadly, whilst still great photos in some way, the images below don’t work so well and would not be suitable for the calendar.

Entries close on 15th April 2019, so get busy with those cameras and send your entries to: along with the name of your dog and the month and year that you adopted him or her.

Arriving at the Hotel we were fortunate, the Hotel allowed dogs in certain rooms and we brought along Ella, a soft gentle Dobermann, who made friends with every one she met. Socially, we found we talked freely and gained great comfort from others. Ella became the talking point and certainly broke the ice with many parents – the friendship and understanding again was very evident.

We found Zak (his original name was Max but we didn’t think it suited him) as a 14 month old young Dobermann along with a few others at the Rescue Centre run by Val Griffiths in Shropshire. I eagerly made arrangements to go and see a few dogs, but Zak was the main interest.
