Hertog Conan van Manensheide was the winner of the D.V. Meisterschaft in 1993 with 285 points and placed eighteenth at the World Dobermann Cup in 1993 with 266 points. He passed the Körung 'for life' with highest possible rating for working drives and high rating for hardness and courage. He was also a winner of numerous International and German show championships. He lived to 7 years of age and the cause of death was Bloat.

His sire, Wasko vom Binselberg, passed the Körung with Körklasse 1A rating and became German Show Champion and VDH Sieger. Wasko lived to 7 years of age. Hertog Conan's dam also passed the Körung with Körklasse 1A rating.

“This black male, bred in Holland from pure German stock is the living proof that success in the show ring does not preclude success in the working field and visa versa. Hertog Conan is the first Dobermann in history and till now the only Dobermann to become a DV Schönheits Sieger and a D.V. Leistungs Sieger (A conformation Winner and Working Winner). He won his permanent place in the breeds history.
His beauty brought him the Europa-Sieger, IDC-Sieger, Bundessieger, DV-Sieger title as well as many Champion titles. In 1992 he even won his World Champion title in Spain. Structurally he is well built with good shoulders and front. He has a deep, broad chest, a strong head with correct planes and a pleasing expression. His tailset is O.K. and his movement is good.
His character brought him numerous wins in the working field and in 1993 the D.V. Leistungssieger title. He passed the Schutzhund tests many times and IPO III as well as the tough German Körung with highest qualifications. Of course Hertog Conan is a magnificent working dog, stately and full of temperament when working.
His pedigree shows us that the female line of the sire's side is built up with vom Binselberg blood while the female line of the dam's side has a strong influence of von Frankenland blood. On both sides we see Bronco vom Zenn whose influence is seen heavily in this dog. A dog like Conan should has for sure reproductive value. Passing through his strong body is the outstanding feature of his hereditary power together with transmitting his working abilities. I have also seen that he is passing through his head type. I have already seen some youth Siegers at the important shows by him who look promising such as Hermes Landrys. Conan died in 1996.”
