LITTLEPORT dog owner Gary Booth has become the first British man to qualify for the World Doberman Dog Championship with his Schutzhund, Ulf.

The championship, which will be held in May 2008 in Austria, recognises the Doberman breed as best trained in tracking, obedience and protection.

Ulf will be required to undertake a number of tasks in the competition.

Mr Booth, 46, said, "Ulf is the first British Doberman to ever qualify for the world championship, and I want to get in the top ten."
