Bob Vandiver has bred and owner-handled Dobermans since the early seventies and has had 25 Doberman champions. He was an AKC licensed Doberman handler starting in the late seventies. He handled until the early eighties when he was offered an job assignment in Europe. He applied to judge Dobermans in 1995 and is now approved by the American Kennel Club to judge all working, sporting, and most herding breeds.

Bob has judged many prestigious specialty and all-breed shows in the United States, including Westminster. He has judged National Specialties and has judged internationally in China, Australia, England, Philippines, New Zealand, Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.

He has been active in several dog clubs, including 6 years on the Board of Directors of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America. He has been the DPCA Chairman of Judges Education, and is a member/officer of the Carolina Working Group Association, Carolina Dog Judges Study Group, and Greenville Kennel Club. Bob is the Cluster Chair/Show Chair for the Carolina Foothills Cluster in Greenville, SC (among the largest shows in the eastern US).

He is an engineering graduate of Texas A&M University, and retired as a Project Manager from a very large Engineering and Construction firm, where he managed major projects, typically in the $100 million range.
