Breeder of Working Line Dobermanns for Work, Sport or Active Companions
Vor Allem Dobermanns
***** IMPORTANT *****
All my puppies will remain natural.
This is a very personal decision, and the right one for my puppies. I understand the appeal of the traditional cropped and docked look of the Dobermann, and there are lots of other breeders that continue those procedures with their puppies.
If you are interested in a puppy from an upcoming litter, please fill out our puppy application. Homes will be carefully screened and references checked. I will be keeping a list of interested homes, with completed applications, and they will be given the first opportunity to put in a reservation fee. Reservation fees are accepted ($500 non-refundable) once the puppies are 2-3 weeks old, and I know that they are thriving. Working/sport homes, and individuals with experience with dominant breeds will be given preference. The cost of the puppy includes:
* NON BREEDING registration with the CKC, equivalent to AKC LIMITED (FULL registration available after contract requirements are fulfilled)
* structural evaluation
* temperament testing
* initial vaccination(s)
* appropriate deworming
* vWD testing, if not clear by parentage
* UC Davis Genetic Diversity testing
* any and all relevant medical history
* Health Warranty/Contract
* breeder support for the lifetime of your Vor Allem Dobermann puppy
I raise all my puppies using the Avidog International program. This includes, but is not limited to, early neurological stimulation (ENS), early scent introduction (ESI), startle recovery, problem solving, socialization and enrichment, and early litter training. This program develops switched-on, well balanced dogs. The puppies will be extensively handled by numerous adults and children. As they grow, various objects and situations (wood, metal, plastic, etc, boxes, mini agility equipment, tunnels, gunfire, smells, etc) are introduced to the puppies for them to experience and interact with safely. The puppies are all raised inside with plenty of outdoor time, weather permitting. Each puppy gets multiple, individual sessions to play tug, learn to be still for grooming and vet exams, get used to the collar and leash, start basic obedience positions using food lures, etc. All puppies will be sold with a written contract/warranty. I will ALWAYS be willing to take back any puppy I have produced, at any age, for any reason. I never want any of my puppies ending up in shelters, rescues, etc. If life circumstances present themselves, please get in touch with me immediately, and we will work the issue out together.
You are encouraged to come and pick up your puppy in person. If that is not feasible, shipping can be arranged at the buyer's expense.
When puppies are matched to their owners, based on suitable temperament and owner experience, they and their family thrive much better over their lifetime than the pups whose temperament wasn't correctly matched. Even the best raised puppy will not do well in a home that doesn't know how, or won't utilize the puppy's natural traits and propensities.
There is no "pick of the litter", as each person values different traits in their puppies. If a suitable puppy is not available in the litter, I will offer the home either a refund of the reservation fee, or have it moved to the next available litter.
I place a great deal of importance on selecting the best puppy for each home, as I want the best chance of success for everyone.
Vor Allem Dobermanns reserves the right to refuse the sale of a puppy at anytime, and for any reason. If sale is refused, all monies will be refunded.
