The Dobermann Club's litter scheme for the prospective puppy owner.

This is a unique scheme instituted especially for the benefit of club members who breed litters of Dobermann puppies and also to assist in the selection of a healthy puppy for those wishing to acquire a Dobermann. The Club has put in place a number of tried and tested rules which appear hereunder & which are applicable to the Breeder for the general Protection of the new owners. This scheme is not meant to replace any advertising that Breeders may do on their own account and prospective puppy owners must, in any case, make their own enquiries as to the veracity of statements made to them by Breeders.

However the club makes every effort to ensure that the health requirements such as X-rays of the parents hips & the eye examination for heritable eye diseases on the parents, have been carried out. Also that the details of the pedigrees of both parents are as truthful as it is possible to ascertain. All Breeders listed and whose names may be given to prospective owners by the Club are required to have been a member of The Dobermann Club for at least 6 months prior to offering the puppies in the litter scheme. The Club has therefore had an opportunity of getting to know the Breeders as well as possible. No name or telephone number is given out prior to all paperwork for all pedigrees and health certificates being available and in the Club's files.
