Doberman Pinscher Breeders Information
Finding good Doberman pinscher breeders
in your area can sometimes be tricky.
Many owners who want to buy these adorable pets sometimes even have to go out of their state to find a good breeder. It is very important to do your research before you buy from a breeder.
This is mostly because bad breeders often do not quality control their dogs and you could find your newly bought Doberman Pinscher Puppy to have a variety of diseases or genetic Doberman Pinscher Health Problems. There is nothing worse than knowing or finding out later on that you supported a bad breeder on top of that.
Doberman Pinscher breeders often go by word of mouth, so head over to your nearest veterinarian or dog trainer and ask around. You can even call the Doberman pinscher club of America and see if they know anybody in your area that breeds these dogs. Doberman Pinscher Dog Breeders you find through word of mouth tend to be better than those you find on the web or newspaper.
Breeders who volunteer for pet events or causes tend to be caring people who want to make a difference in the world. Doberman Pinscher Dog Breeders who care about dogs will be more likely to take care of them and make sure that they don't breed siblings with siblings or with a dog that is known to have genetic problems.
Even if you find the best Doberman pinscher breeders in the country, this does not always guarantee you'll have a sick-free dog. In terms of genetic disease, Doberman Pinschers get a life-threatening illness called Dilated Cardiomyopathy. In fact, about 40% of all Dilated cardiomyopathy cases are from Doberman Pinschers.
Many dog experts suspect that there is a autonomic dominant trait and it can be passed onto future generations. Breeders are working hard to try and reduce these cases, but it can take years and many generations before it can be completely removed. Knowing some basic Dog First Aid is always a good idea.
You want to completely avoid Doberman pinscher breeders that breed other dog breeds. This does not apply to every breeder, but typically if a breeder is focused on one dog breed they can ensure better quality control. When they have to take care of two dog breeds, quality can go down because their attention is split.
When you enter into a Doberman Pinscher breeder's facilities, you can quickly tell how these dogs have been taken care of.
Are the Doberman Pinscher Puppies and parents locked up in crates every time you visit?
Do they have a backyard where the dogs can at least run around and exercise?
Is the facility clean and free of any nasty pet odor?
Sometimes breeders will put their dogs into crates because there are potential buyers coming over and they don't want dogs running all over the place, but when you are about to buy or see the Doberman Pinschers Puppies, is the mother close by or is she no where to be found?
Some breeders will let you look at the puppies before they're ready to be separated from their mother. This is fine as long as they don't sell you the Doberman Pinscher Puppy on the spot. If the dog has been taken away from its mother at too young of an age he or she can develop attachment and other types of problems.
