Getting On The DanBar Ranch "Reservation List"

STEP ONE: I only breed a few litters a year.  You will need to plan on reserving your pup in advance.  I think my (way) above-average pups are well worth the wait.  I take great care not to sell to "impulse buyers" and the "Next Day Puppy" crowd.  

STEP TWO: Click HERE to see what litters are coming up, and which litters still have pups available. The earlier you get your name on the list, the higher up the list you will be for picking your puppy. 

STEP THREE: Read through this site, I have made it as educational as I can, to help you make an informed decision, no matter where you end up obtaining your puppy from.  Email me and I will send you several attachments with additional information. I will also send you a PUPPY APPLICATION.  

STEP FOUR: Send back your filled out puppy application.  PLEASE BE AWARE IT MAY BE UP TO 2 WEEKS BEFORE I REPLY.  This is NOT a business, and it is just me, and I don't spend a great deal of time on the computer.  So please be patient, but also, don't hesitate to follow up if you don't hear from me after 2 weeks.  I WILL NOT IGNORE YOU!

STEP FIVE: When we have decided you are a good match for a DanBar Doberman or cairn, I will put your name on my reservation list.  THIS IS NON BINDING; if you find a puppy elsewhere that is fine.  I DO NOT TAKE DEPOSITS UNTIL THE LITTER IS A FEW WEEKS OLD. 

STEP SIX:  When a litter is born, and the pups are about 2 weeks old I will email all folks on the reservation list, in the order they were received, and at that time you will be given an opportunity to put a deposit to hold a puppy!! 

STEP SEVEN: Deposits are accepted only by PAYPAL.  Remainder of payment due at time of pickup and may be cash or paypal.

STEP EIGHT: Love your wonderful, healthy, smart-as-a-whip DanBar puppy!

STEP NINE: Feel free to call me with ANY concerns throughout the life of your dog.  I am here to mentor and help and can often save you a LOT of money at the veterinarians!  Please let my experience help you and your pup live your best lives. 



Buying a puppy is not like ordering a pair of shoes...

A breeder has no control over when the girls will come in heat, how many puppies will be born, what sex or color the pups will be!

As a hobby breeder - not a commercial kennel - I always keep at least one puppy from each litter, as I am breeding first and foremost for my own breeding program.

 My litters are planned years in advance and require purchasing pups, raising them up, health testing them, and then matching them with the best dog to suit their characteristics. This all takes time, dedication and money. (Lots of money!)  After all, not every puppy purchased for the program will turn out to be breeding quality, and then is spayed or neutered and placed as pets. 

I pride myself on not making outlandish claims about my dogs or charging ridiculous prices. You can't make money breeding Dobermans when you put the money back into extensive health testing and importing world class breeding dogs. My dogs are not cheap but you will easily see why they cost what they do, unlike those breeders who use the male in their own backyard and don't bother to do extensive health testing.  If a breeder charges $4000 or more for their Doberman pups, or $2500 or more for cairn puppies, ask yourself - why? Are they putting that money back into the breed by health testing or are they using the money to go  to Disneyland?   Please educate yourself on health testing.  If I can be of any help, don't hesitate to contact me.
