Der Fachschaft für Gebrauchshunde eV or the Professional Association for Special Service Dogs had its headquarters during the Third Reich in Düsseldorf and was published monthly to provide news, photos and information for breeders, trainers, owners and users of Gebrauchshunde or specially trained service dogs. Those are typically dogs used as watch dogs, rescue dogs, military dogs, protective dogs, mine sniffing dogs, attack dogs, dogs for the blind, etc. Among the dogs used for such purposes are Alsatians, German shepherds, Rottweilers, Doberman Pinschers, Collies, Shelties, Leonbergers, etc.
In Germany during the Third Reich such dogs were used by the SS, the police, the Wehrmacht and political organizations and people from those groups read this magazine along with the civilian membership.
The 8-1/4 x 11-1/2 inch, 16 page monthly magazine carried news of the Reichsverbandes für Hundewesen (RH) in addition to informational articles, official announcements, notices of the military death of members, prize lists, competitions, personals, etc.
This rare lot of Nazi dog magazines consists of issue 11 of 1941, issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 of 1942 and issue 1 of 1943. Issues 11/41, 8/42 and 1/43 have no covers but the others do.
All the magazines are in very good, lightly used condition.
