Health Guarantee

As a responsible breeder we have taken all possible steps to find healthy Dobermanns to add to our family. All our dogs are free of any common ailments that Dobermanns face. This being said, there are many things that as a breeder we can’t guarantee for our puppies. Our guarantee is that we have provided proper care for our puppies and guarantee our puppies of any major health issues or life threatening conditions. Do not confuse typical breed issues with breeding issues as many new Dobermann Pinschers owners do. We have provided a page containing information on what is considered normal in the breed as well as health and physical conditions that can occur that has nothing to do with the breeding process. Please understand that not every puppy will be 100% free of developing any kind of health condition later on down the line. Once they leave our home it is up to you to make sure their health is maintained. This means many trips to the vet, and probably some medical attention as well. We are here to help you and answer any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
