Words From Our Participate

"This Is A Breeding Program That Gave Me Confidence In The Future Health Of My Dog. As Much As I Love Dobermans, I Surely Hate The Genetic Diseases Ignored  And Reproduced By So-Called "Professional Breeders" To Future Offspring. I Pray All Breeders Of Dobermans Contact DGP And Start Mating Healthy Dogs (Only, At Least For The Sake Of Our Favorite Breed. Yes, I Totally Understand Conformation And Temperament, But This Should Not Be Valued Above Health Under No Circumstance During A Breeding Program. God Bless The Doberman Pinscher! And All The Responsible, Moral, And Ethical Professional Breeders. Thank You For All Your Hard Work To Better The Breed."
