All litters are whelped here in our home and live as house dogs – just like our adults. We expect the same in their new homes. Not only does this allows us to constantly monitor, handle, and socialize our pups, it means that our pups go to their new homes mostly house trained and very well socialized.
We dock tails at 3 to 4 days of age, and crop ears at 7 to 8 weeks of age. No puppy goes to their new home before the ear sutures are removed & edges healed. Most pups are ready to go around 10 to 12 weeks of age.
All puppies are vaccinated appropriate to their age, tested for parasites, giardia and coccidia, and de-wormed.
We start heartworm preventative at 8 weeks of age.
We microchip and/or tattoo all pups.
As professional trainers, we believe strongly in SOCIALIZATION! Dobermanns especially benefit from a complete socialization schedule and we want our puppy buyers to commit to continuing this. From the time they are able, they have regular playtime on our property where they meet the training kennel dogs, horses, geese and goats, clients of all ages, interact with the adult Dobermanns, and watch the schutzhund dogs when they are here working.
We schedule outings off the property for our pups once they are about 8 weeks of age. This gives our pups exposure and the ability to meet lots of different people and dogs as well as being exposed to a variety of environments, noises, and smells. We make sure no puppy has a negative experience or gets overwhelmed during their most critical social period. We put a huge amount of time and commitment into every puppy we produce.
We are always happy to answer ANY questions. We will be there to support you throughout the life of your INCREDIBLE Dobermann.
We expect our puppy homes to also commit to keeping in touch with us for the life of your INCREDIBLE Dobermann.
Our pups are sold to homes we approve of only. We require a phone interview and may request a home visit or photos. References are helpful. You can request our puppy application by sending us an e-mail.
We prefer that you come to pick up your puppy rather than asking us to ship it. This will give you the opportunity to meet us and our dogs before you take your puppy home. Though we have shipped for homes that we feel completely comfortable with, we do not feel it is ideal for puppy or new owner.
We welcome visitors at anytime by appointment.
Pricing of each litter varies, but you can expect to pay $1,500.00 to $3,500.00. We do not offer variable pricing on show vs. working quality. Our goal is to produce pups that are all of these things.
While no dog is perfect, due to our strict breeding and raising requirements, every pup will have the best conformation possible, excellent temperament, working ability, be healthy, evaluated honestly, and have been given everything a puppy needs to be a well rounded companion. We expect that all of our pups will live as beloved pets first & foremost - no matter what they go on to accomplish.
Just as our puppy homes expect certain guarantees from us, we will expect the same from you! Please e-mail for a copy of our puppy contract for complete requirements of purchasing an INCREDIBLE DOBERMANN puppy.
Unless otherwise agreed, all puppies are placed on AKC limited registration.
