Reputable Breeders in California?

As I was saying in my intro thread, we just got our first Doberman as a couple! She was free and from a friend, but if all goes well, we may want to get a male at some point, so with that being said, what are good reputable breeders? Price not an issue.

The DPCA breeder referral list is a good place to start. CA is a pretty big state, where in CA are you located?

A few more points.
1) I'm assuming that Petey is the name of a male dog? Dobermans are prone to same-sex aggression, especially with the males, and so a reputable breeder will generally not sell a male puppy to a home with another male dog.
2) Also, you just got/will be bringing home a puppy very soon - slow your roll! Enjoy this puppy for who she is and wait until this puppy is about 1.5-2.5 years old and she has matured so you can know her adult personality before adding another dog.
3) I don't know if you're considering getting another puppy soon but, if you are, littermate syndrome would be a worry.

We are in the Los Angeles area. Petey is a male, and I was reading on that, but he is also not a permanent dog, long story short, we have been taking care of my brother's dog, he gets out of the airforce in the coming months, and my worry is our new girl will be lonely, BUT with that being said, this will not be a sudden thing, but want to actually have a great quality Doberman like I have been wanting since again 13

If you're a pretty active home and/or plan to work the dog I"d look int Adlercrest - I think they're on most lists here for California breeders. That's the only one that I can think of at the moment (it's late and has been a long day).

I don't know what you consider to be reputable but this is a good general post that I, and others here, often link for new members - Reputable breeders - for new folks

Montwood/Arista is in San Diego as well. And Ameridobes is in Santa Barbara I belive. Those are the ones I can think of down toward So Cal area aside from Aldercrest. I suggest you get a really clear idea of what you are looking for first though, because these breeders offer different things.

You may also want to consider the Los Vegas area. I know a couple people with dogs from Lisa Buroff (Winmar) and have been very happy. There are also some folks on DT with Winmar dogs. Pennylane is also in NV.

I totally agree with Patchwork about slowing things down and letting things settle in with your current pup before even thinking about adding a 2nd. My female Doberman is approaching 3 1/2 and we just now got a 2nd pup last month. I'm so thankful we waited until Lucy was more mature and solid in her manners and obedience before adding a second dog.

And your little girl most likely absolutely will not mind being the only dog and the apple of your eye :]

And remember, OP, that you might have to wait several months for a puppy to be ready to come home from a reputable breeder. If you start doing your research now and get on a waiting list, you might be able to time it closely to when your brother gets home and can take his dog with him.

Congrats on your new dobergirl! And welcome to DT!

I second this, I have dogs from both Winmar and Pennylane.
I have a friend who has a Kendra dog too, he is a great looking dog, with the most wonderful temperament and personality. You would have to ask them about health testing though, as I'm not sure what they do on their dogs.

I second waiting too, it's much easier. Thor was 2 when we got Trinket, and well behaved, out of the puppy stage, and listens well. It made it easier.
