Atlanta Doberman Pinscher Club - Litter Box
Breeding Doberman Pinschers should be taken on only after careful, responsible consideration. If carried out correctly, breeding a litter is a very expensive undertaking. Check out the "Before you Breed" web site for information about the things you should consider before breeding a litter of Dobermans.
Disclosure: Dobermans, like all purebred dogs, are subject to certain genetic health problems. Some of these are: Dilated Cardiomyopathy (DCM), Cervical Vertebral Instability (CVI, aka Wobblers), von Willebrand's Disease (vWD), Hip Dysplasia, Autoimmune Thyroid Deficiency and various eye problems. vWD, Hip Dysplasia, thyroid deficiency and eye problems have tests to disclose the conditions. Cardiomyopathy and CVI still do not have tests to warn to the potential for these diseases, however careful pedigree study can indicate possible trends. Responsible breeders can try to reduce the chances of cardio by having a cardiologist echo-cardiogram and holter monitor their dogs before breeding to assure sire and dam do not currently show any sign of cardio.
