Breeders in/near Illinois?

Our family would like to purchase a female Doberman puppy this coming spring and are researching breeders in our area. The dog would be for a family pet, be besties with our 5 y/o purebred GSD and possibly to run agility for fun and exercise. Health and temperament are the priorities and color-wise red would be first choice. We live in the NW suburbs of Chicago but would be willing to travel to IN/WI/MI etc. Within a days back and fourth drive. Prefer American lines, thanks!

Welcome to DT. There are a number of reputable breeders up that way. Some I can think of in your area are Windsong, Rahdy, MOA, Smack Dab, Mi-ti, HQ, Ravenswood, Element. Be sure whatever breeder you choose you ask for results of health testing, especially for the echo/holter on the sire and dam since our breed is plagued with DCM (a disease ultimately leading to heart failure).

Most of these will be on the DPCA breeder referral list, but if you haven't visited check here: DPCA | The Doberman | Breeder Referral

You might also get in contact with or involved with the Illini Doberman Pinscher Club or go to some local shows- it's unlikely you will find many shows between now and spring, but you can check here to search for all breed conformation shows by state(s).

Hope you are planning to come to the DPCA National show which will be in early October 2020 in St. Charles. There will be hundreds of dobermans there!

I know several Element dogs in person, and really love their temperaments.
