Six litters this year? Who knows how many in previous years? Oh wait, fourteen litters in 2018? Good God, I guess LOTS of people have experience with this breeder!

Lots of threads on here about them: https://www.google.com/search?client...+doberman+farm

Here are some really good resources on how to evaluate breeders:

https://dpca.org/BreedEd/buying-a-doberman-pinscher/

https://talkdoglogic.wordpress.com/2...hampion-lines/

This would be a good place to start searching for breeders: http://dpca.org/breed/breed_referral.php

Good grief--20 litters in less than two years? I'd really hate to see the facilities and the breeding stock--that isn't even a BYB--it sound like a full blown puppy mill.

I don't have experience with this breeder but from what others said I see red flags.

Make sure they are doing the proper health testing, vWD status, ANNUAL holter monitoring and echoing of the heart to help catch the number one killer of Dobermans DCM (and don't believe ANY breeder that claims their dogs lines don't have DCM), annual Thyroid testing, OFA hips and elbows and I like to see full panel blood testing done before every breeding (although with 20 breedings in 2 years that would be a lot).


Good luck in your hunt. the DPCA has a breeder referral, the UDC has a breeder referral and there's a Doberman breeder listing group on facebook.

And a little more on the DCM issue...no dog can be cleared by a genetic test at this point. Yes, they have a couple of tests out there, but they are not particularly good at predicting whether a dog will develop DCM. "Clear" dogs can get DCM; dogs who actually have the genes tested for may not.

At this point, the tests are basically an aid as researchers try to figure out what is going on---DCM appears to be genetic and inherited, but in a very complicated way with multiple factors involved.

Also, when you are researching health or temperament, make sure you look at the records for aunts and uncles, grandparents, siblings or part sibs from previous breedings, etc., not just at information about the parents.

Good luck in your search.
