Welcome To Garjan Dobermans
We have learned a lot and want to share with you and hope you enjoy all the information we have put here in one location..
I recommend going to the DPCA (Doberman Pinscher Club Of America) www.DPCA.org and the ADPEF (American Doberman Pinscher Educational Foundation) www.ADPEF.org websites they are on our link page as well, to get more information about Dobermans prior to making your purchase.
If I, as a breeder, did my job right, this will be a 10 to 15 year comitment on your part.
We Test for the following using DNA, cheek swabs using Vetgen for our lab, vWD & DCM.
We do OFA hips and CERF eyes and we are in the process of getting all of our Dobermans registered in the CHIC Program.
We do not breed, White, (Z factor) King or Warlock Dobermans.
All dogs over two years of age are DNA for vWD and DCM, OFA'd hips and thyroid and all are CERF tested as well prior to breeding (the bitch that is sired by our Levi, Whisper) will be X-rayed/MRI for cervical vertebral instability or from a malformed spinal canal Prior to being bred.
We currently take our Dobermans to U.C. Davis for the blood donor program every 6 to 8 weeks, blood panels are done at that time.
We are striving to breed for Health, Disposition and Conformation.
The standard and guidelines are set by the American Kennel Club and the Doberman Pinscher club of America.
