Puppy Information - (please read carefully before contacting us):

Are you SURE a Dobermann is right for you? Please read the following BEFORE going any further. Dobe FAQ & Is the Dobermann the right breed for you?

We breed Dobermanns for genetic soundness, temperament and conformation. We pay careful attention to temperament in selecting dogs for our breeding program. We strive to produce quality dogs with excellent temperament, soundness, intelligence/trainability and type.

We have 1-2 litters a year. We are a not a business. We are extremely particular about who adopts our vom Illerdamm babies and therefore like to have as much contact with our buyers as possible before selling our puppies and like them to stay in contact with us and give us updates.

All breeding stock have been hip graded.

All breeding stock have been tested for or are genetically clear of von Willebrand disease.

All breeding stock is tested for genetic eye anomalies.

We breed our own bitches only to stud dogs meeting the above criteria.

Puppies are sold only to pre-qualified (screened) purchasers (we normally have a waiting list).

We reserve the right to refuse to sell a puppy to any individual(s) for any reason we see fit.

General health is guaranteed. Other guarantees & stipulations are stated in our Puppy Contract.

vom Illerdamm puppies are born and raised inside our home. They are provided a safe and clean environment where they are watched carefully and receive lots of human as well as other dog and cat contact.

Puppies are dewormed as needed and are vaccinated before leaving for their new homes.

Puppy's temperaments are evaluated at 49 days and matched with purchasers whose lifestyles and desires are compatible with the evaulation results. We will pick the best puppy for you.

Since we normally do not choose our own puppy before 49 days, we will not know which puppy is yours until after that.

Deposits are non-refundable unless we don't have the color/gender you desire or the puppy is not available for delivery at 8 weeks of age.

All puppies are sent home with microchips inserted or a tattoo for identification, plus a breeder-written puppy book which includes information on training, health & safety.

We will always stand by our policy that any dog of our breeding will always be welcome here. If, for any reason, you decide not to keep a vom Illerdamm dog, please contact us and we will keep the dog (if possible) until it can be placed in a new home, however long that may be. We NEVER want to see a dog of our breeding end up in a shelter.
