You may be looking for a puppy for the first time or for the first time, in a long time. Our hope is that you will learn what to look for in a responsible Doberman breeder and what questions to ask to help in your search for a new puppy. The effort you put into finding a good breeder will be worth it. You will not only be investing money, but time and emotion into your puppy. It is up to you to make sure the breeder you choose puts the best interest of the breed first.
The weight of responsibility for Doberman Pinscher breeders has increased immensely in the last few years. More health testing has become available, affordable and essential. You need to know what questions to ask breeders to make sure they are doing all they can to ensure their next generation has a healthy start. Please see Doberman Health testing section. What we do now, as breeders, should not be for us but for the generations that come after.
We have been breeding Dobermans for over 40 years. We are not big breeders and may only have one litter a year. We are members in good standing with the Doberman Pinscher Club of America and we are long time members of our local obedience club where each of our dogs have gone for training.
Over the years our children have shown our dogs in 4-H and obedience. We have done therapy visits, rally, obedience, agility, freestyle and tracking with our dogs. Our dogs are AKC registered and have their “CGC’s” (Canine Good Citizen) from the AKC. Most of our puppies go to families or as companion dogs so temperament is very important. We temperament test all of our puppies with the Volhard Puppy Aptitude test at 7 weeks. We welcome our “family” of Dobermans back for boarding, puppy reunions, training and dog walks.
Our dogs are part of our family and we want our puppies to be part of a loving family too!
