The Doberman Pinscher Club of the Tappan Zee was founded more than 40 years ago to serve the needs of Doberman owners and breeders in the area surrounding the what was then the Tappan Zee bridge connecting Rockland and Westchester Counties over the Hudson River in New York. Licensed by the AKC in 1973, we held our first Independent specialty in 1975.
We now hold four Specialty Shows and three Rally and Obedience Trials each year.
Currently DPCTZ is one of only two fully active DPCA Chapter Cclubs in the state.
We boast a small but very committed membership. Specialty Breed Dog clubs exist to promote ownership of purebred dogs and the activities in which we can participate with them. Our breed is an interactive breed; they require a place in our homes and in our hearts and on the way, they require a clear job to do. So our members are also involved in all aspects of training and showing the Doberman Pinscher and have extensive first hand knowledge of behavior and temperament.
