Frequently Asked Questions




Welcome to the FAQ page. Here you will find general information or FAQ's on my breeding program. I breed these dogs for loyal, non-aggressive, loving protection. These are working dogs. Many of our dogs have AKC Canine Good Citizen titles and are active in agility and obedience. We have "kids" that have gone on to become service dogs for the disabled. These are not guard dogs, but they probably (notice I said probably, there is no guarantee as all dogs are different) will protect you in a threatening situation. We take great pride in raising these puppies correctly. Read these FAQs to see what sets Broken Oak Dobermans apart from the others.

Where are your puppies kept?
They live in the house with us, never left in crates or kennels in a separate building! By the time they are ready to leave us for their permanent homes, they have been well started, and in most cases almost done in their crate training (also known as housebroken).

What type of items are the puppies exposed to?
I expose them to many different sights and sounds including horses, chickens, ATVs and cars to name but a few.
top

What type of training do you recommend?
I believe in Alpha training and the puppies have all been started with it. Alpha training makes for a better companion and housemate. I can not stress this point enough! I strongly recommend continuing this process as it will lead to a happy adult dog and a happy family! If you aren't familiar with the process, there are some good books available as well as some excellent obedience trainers who can help you.

Do you "screen" potential puppy owners?
I screen potential owners very closely to make sure that they are suited to my dogs and willing and able to give them the absolute best loving care possible.
top

What information do you provide with the puppy?
With every puppy I give out a starter kit along with a folder containing all the information regarding their worming schedule, current eating/sleeping patterns and transition suggestions.
top

Do you offer a guarantee?
I have a purchase contract with a one year health guarantee and a return clause, if the puppy doesn't work out, you can always bring them back to me!
top

Do you recommend micro-chipping puppies?
All puppies leave already micro-chipped and include registration for Home Again.
top

What type of diet are the puppies on?
I feed a raw food diet to all of my dogs here and highly recommend keeping them on it. To that extent I have increased my health guarantee from one year to two years for puppies that are kept on a raw food diet as I believe in its benefits so strongly. There is a list of books that I recommend. Please feel free to e-mail me for that. I am happy to share my experiences and results with this method!
top

Can I contact you for advice after I bring my puppy home?
This is very important! I want you to be happy with your new family member! I am always available to answer questions or give advice. You are never alone trying to figure out how to handle all those new puppy issues. Ever!
top

Are your puppies "affordable"?
We are easy to talk to and want to make getting your new puppy home as affordable as possible. We have payment options available for good homes. Owning a great Doberman should never be about how much money you have in the bank (within normal limits of course!) and I want to share this great breed with the average family who might otherwise think getting a top notch dog is only a pipe dream. Contact me! Lets see what we can work out.
top

Do you sell puppies to people in foreign countries?
I only sell to people from the United States and Canada. I can not, in good conscience, send my puppies overseas.
