Notori Dobermans has just relocated from beautiful Hilton Head Island to Charleston,South Carolina. I breed Doberman Pinscher puppies in my home. I have Dobermans for the show ring, obedience, rally, agility, flyball, tracking, search and rescue, therapy work and much, much more. All of my puppies are home raised and well socialized. Prior to breeding, all of my dogs are health tested for the following breed appropriate health clearances: vWD (DNA), routine blood chemistry (annually), Michigan State Thyroid (annually), Cardiac Ultrasound, EKG and Holter Monitor (prior to each breeding), OFA hips, CERF eyes (annually), and brucellosis (prior to each breeding). Once I have puppies, I follow the protocols for the following: Early Neurological Stimulation, Educating the Infant Puppy, Rules of 7 and Developing High Achievers. All puppies have dewclaws removed, Doberman tails docked, microchip implanted, age appropriate vaccinations, flea and heartworm prevention, and Doberman ears cropped in a veterinary clinic prior to leaving my home. Although my preference is conformation and performance homes, I often have wonderful pets available to the right home. As an experienced breeder, I choose the puppy that is right for your home and lifestyle. I do this through observation, temperament testing (Volhard's test) and an application process. All pet quality puppies are sold on a limited registration with a spay/neuter contract. I will not : sell a Doberman puppy with natural ears, sell more than one puppy from the same litter to a single home or fly a puppy as cargo. I use and recommend We Move Pets for ground transportation if you can not travel to me yourself. I currently breed black/rust and red/rust Dobermans. My next planned litter of Dobermans will be due in late Feb 2013. Please feel free to email me for more information, an application and/or sample contract. Pet, performance and show quality puppies priced from $1,800-$3000. References available upon request. I am a member of Hilton Head Island Kennel Club (board member/obedience chairperson), Charleston Kennel Club, Charleston Dog Training Club, Charleston Working Dog Club, and United Schutzund Club of America. I currently manage Southside Animal Hospital in Charleston, SC (www.southsideah.org) and have been in the veterinary business for 23 years. If you choose to buy a puppy from somewhere else, please do your homework first. Visit the Doberman Pinscher Club of America website, DPCA.org, for more information on the breed and how to choose a responsible breeder. I know several other responsible breeders, like myself, that will have puppies in the near future. Feel free to ask me for their contact information.
