Lakewood Doberman Kennel

FULLY HEALTH TESTED & OFA CERTIFIED EUROPEAN DOBERMANS

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

Our breeding program focuses first on our dogโ€™s health. We are committed to producing healthy, well-tempered dogs with elite conformation for family, farm, sport, protection, obedience, service and more.

There are always some health issues within each breed. No breed or line is completely free of inherited health problems. Responsible breeders try to mitigate and avoid inherited defects by researching pedigrees and screening parents for health and temperament issues BEFORE breeding each litter.

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.

PROTECTORS OF THE BREED

We are protectors of the traditional breed standard of the Doberman Pinscher as defined by the AKC and FCI.ย Our goal is to produce healthy European Dobermans with fantastic temperaments, superior working drive, and excellent conformation.

We do not breed to produce blue, fawn, albino, warlock or any color that is not recognized by the AKC and FCI. We DO NOT breed to produce oversized Dobermans.

CARDIO HOLTER TESTING PROGRAM

We own our own holter machines, although all of our dogs are clear of DCM genetically, we 24-hour holter test all of our dogs 2x annually. As part of our breeding program, we offer affordable, easily accessible holter testing to anyone who is interested in testing any breed. Please contact us for more info on our holter rental program.
