Breeder Recommendations -- VA
My husband and I are looking for reputable doberman breeders in the VA/MD/NC/PA area. We are looking for a companion dog rather than a show dog, but have been repeatedly heartbroken by adopting rescue dobies who develop DCM, Copper Storage, or tachycardia and so are limiting our search to breeders with strong health screenings and breed lines. Since we're new to the world of breeders, it's hard to know who's reputable and who's a well-presented puppy mill. If anyone can recommend good breeders or identify breeders to avoid, I'd really appreciate it!

Thank you,

Hi there! We get a number of requests from the region, so I'm just going to copy and paste a post I've written a *number* of times in the past.

secondly, if you absolutely want a puppy from a reputable breeder (which i totally get!), PLEASE contact the breed clubs in each state for assistance.
Maryland: Metropolitan Baltimore Doberman Pinscher Club - Metropolitan Baltimore Doberman Pinscher Club
PA: Quaker City Doberman Pinscher Club -
Virginia: Cavalier Doberman Pinscher Club, Hampton Roads, Virginia (doberman rescue for local area) and Potomac Valley Doberman Pinscher Club

each chapter club will have an individual on the board doing referrals. they'll know who is actively breeding and expecting puppies.
