TOP EUROPEAN DOBERMAN BREEDER

SMALL SCALE, TRANSPARENT, EXPERIENCED BREEDER

SPECIALIZING IN HEALTHY COMPANIONS FOR SPORT, PROTECTION, SERVICE, HOME AND FARM

We are protectors of the traditional breed standard of the Dobermann as defined by the FCI and AKC. We produce ONLY superior working and show quality European Dobermanns from multi-national champion bloodlines.

All of our dogs have been DNA tested and also received non-genetic health screenings (xrays & ECG’s) with CLEAR/NORMAL results certified by the OFA for all major health exams recommended by the OFA & AKC.

Our bloodline was developed with focus on several key factors to ensure we ethically produce the highest quality European Dobermans. Among these are balanced and reliable temperament, superior working drive, excellent conformation, adherence to breed standard,ย and longevity of life.

We value the traditional purpose of the Doberman – to be a personal protector. We produce well balanced Dobermans that are able to provide home security and participate in canine sporting events, yet be cherished members of the family.

FULLY HEALTH TESTED & OFA CERTIFIED EUROPEAN DOBERMANS

Our Small Scale European Doberman Breeding Program Produces Puppies of Exceptional Quality, Temperament, and Elite Health Standards.

FULL HEALTH SCREENINGS. NOT JUST DNA TESTS.

We go beyond just DNA tests, in coordination with our network of medical professionals, we conduct full health screenings on our dogs, as recommended by AKC, FCI, and OFA. Our program includes thorough screenings for hip and elbow dysplasia, dilated cardiomyopathy, von Willebrand’s disease, and other genetic health conditions relevant to the breed. We also conduct regular eye exams, as well as thyroid and liver function tests, to ensure the overall health and well-being of our dogs.

HOW TO RESERVE A PUPPY FROM US

We carefully plan each litter and prioritize the health and well-being of both the mother and her puppies. As a result, we operate on a waiting list policy. By joining our waiting list, you will have the opportunity to reserve a puppy from one of our upcoming litters.

STEP 1: Fill Out Buyer Questionnaire
Fill out & submit buyer questionnaire. This allows us to better understand if we can provide you with that puppy that you are searching for.
STEP 2: Breeder & Buyer Phone Call
Buyer / Breeder phone call to discuss in further detail and answer any questions that we may have for each other.
STEP 3: Deposit & Contract
If approved, $1K deposit is required via zelle or bank transfer (NO CREDIT CARDS), purchase agreement signed between buyer and seller, copies are sent to both parties via email.
STEP 4: Placed On Wait List

STEP 5: Puppy Confirmation

Although nobody can guarantee long life and perfect health, as a breeder, it is our responsibility to be aware of health risks and to take the appropriate steps to mitigate them.

We take great pride in ensuring that our puppies are healthy, happy, and free of any hereditary health issues. To that end, we provide a 3-year health guarantee for all of our puppies that covers any genetic health issues that may arise within the first 36 months of the puppy’s life.
