Doberman Pinscher Puppies Information
Before owners consider adopting or purchasing Doberman pinscher puppies
, there are a few things they need to know.
Where they buy the puppies from make all the difference. You never want to purchase an animal from a backyard Doberman Pinscher Breeder or a pet store. Reputable Doberman Pinscher Breeders do not sell their puppies to pet stores and where these pet stores get their dogs are somewhat unknown/sketchy.
Most cases pet stores get their dogs from puppy mills – a place where the dogs there are kept in tiny cages and are treated like livestock. There's a big chance that where these Doberman Pinscher puppies came from, their parents did not get the appropriate tests done to ensure the dog is pure bred or if their parents have any hereditary Doberman Pinscher Health Problems.
Don't purchase your Doberman pinscher puppies too young. If Doberman Pinscher Dog Breeders sell their pets too young, you know there's something wrong with the way these dogs are being kept. Breeders that sell their puppies between the ages of 8 to 10 weeks old are ideal.
You should be extremely careful with breeders that try to sell their pups when their 5 to 6 weeks old. Do not listen to them if they say this age range is fine, because it is a lie. Breeders who do this are usually very inexperienced or do not care about the overall health of the Doberman Pinscher Puppy and are looking to make a quick buck.
Puppies start eating solid food around the 5 to 6 week mark, but this does not mean they are emotionally ready to be separated from its mother. If the puppies are taken away at too young of an age, they can develop a lot of emotional trauma and have attachment issues.
You want to purchase Doberman Pinschers Puppies that have lived in a healthy family environment. It is important that you visit the breeder's facilities and have a look around before buying. You want to be able to meet the puppies' parents and check their papers and the various tests that certify them for breeding.
Good breeders have documentation about their Doberman Pinscher Dogs and aren't afraid to show them to you. The way the puppies have been raised will show you how social-able they are when they get older. If you visit the breeder's facilities and find that the parents are kept in cages and that the breeder never lets their Doberman Pinschers out to play, then do not buy from them.
Good breeders are open, they ask you lots of questions, show you around their facility, and aren't afraid of telling you that you're not the right owner for their Doberman Pinscher puppies. Many breeders will ask a potential Doberman Pinscher dog owner what they do for a living and if they'll be the ones taking care of the dog or if another person in the family will.
They would like to meet the other family members that live in the house to get an overall feel of what kind of household the dog will go to before selling you a Doberman Pinscher dog.
