I think that they are both good breeders, but totally different geographic areas. Irina is in Texas, and Laura Jones is not far from me in PA. What are you looking for in a Doberman?miko said:
LapDog said:yeah I get what your saying...but I also think a website is a rather important advertisement for any "business"...you want it to be accurate and be able to promote yourself the best you can...I think if a breeders website isnt what it should be...then I think people definately have the right to make assumptions....and make judgments off of it. Duchess's breeder doesnt even have a website for breeding sake....only her training facility...and she doesnt even mention litters on there.
again I would definately not consider breeding a business that is why I put it in quotes...but if your going to promote yourself on the internet...you have to expect that reaction if it isnt up to expectations of people experienced and familiar with the breed
Excellent points!PeeWeesMama said:Well Doberguy while that is a grand idea, I am assuming the people who ask about certain breeders are new to the breed. Alot of people on this board know who is who in the Dobe world. They know the dogs they know the breeders they know the lines they know more than the breeder is going to tell you. People can come across as very trusting on the phone to someone who may not know any better. And while just visiting a web site is not the only research you should do asking around can get you alot of great information too. There are certain tale-tale signs on website that some Dobe people are keen to and tell you to stay away from as well !!!
I have met her and her dogs, she is a very nice person. I also like her dogs.miko said:
Those are excellent points peewee’s mom and murreydobe and very true. The sharing of basic breeder information and certain breeders is important and can help others quickly identify lies and clever marketing as well as honest and quality breeders.doberguy said:why not call the breeder and ask for references from the vet and folks who've bought one of their puppies? ?
