The Working Aptitude Evaluation (WAE) is developed and overseen by the Doberman Pinscher Club of America (DPCA). This testing and certification program is aimed at recognizing those Doberman Pinschers that display the temperament traits desirable in the breed in accordance with the DPCA’s breed standard, thus demonstrating the character of a stable companion and resolute protector.
Any AKC-registered Doberman Pinscher (including ILP) of an allowable color, 18 months and older is eligible for evaluation. Your Doberman must have an AKC or ILP number to register for the WAE.
Z factor Doberman Pinschers (white Dobermans) are eligible with proof of spay/neuter.
