Björn van Stokebrand was one of the premier working males in the Netherlands and in 1983 he came second (behind Nicolai vom Kloster-Kamp) DVIN Working Championship with a score of 97 points in the protection work. He followed that up with a DVIN Working title in 1984 with a score of 99 points in the protection work and in 1985 he placed second (this time behind Bonni vom Nettetal) at the DVIN Working Championship with a score of 96 points in protection.

“A Dutch bred black dog with an excellent head. In 1983 the German Judge Mr Hensel wrote: “a large male with parallel planes, a lovely long neck, a good tailset, ample fore chest and depth of brisket. Correct tuck-up. He is better angulated in the front than the rear. His colour is good and he has good, dark eyes and tan. His movement is O.K'.
The only problem with this dog was the rather straight hind-quarters which he passed on to some of his offspring. Nevertheless he did produce some good progeny. He became a Dutch, German and International Champion. In 1982 he won the Winner title in Amsterdam. The character of this male was outstanding. He was the Best Working Dobermann in 1983 and 1984, and he passed his IPO III very easily. He passed his really super character on to his offspring.”
