I got involved in dogs by showing and breeding beagles, which I have been involved in with my Mom, Cindy Williams of Honey Pot Hounds, for roughly the last decade. But many years ago, the Doberman stole my heart and I decided to devote my time to this wonderful breed.
My goal as a responsible and reputable AKC Breeder of Merit and member of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America (DPCA) is to do everything possible to improve the breed while adhering to the breed standard. Although many people may think breeding one breed of dog is the same as breeding another, each breed is very different and has different health issues that need to be tested for and avoided, as well as a different standard to adhere to.
I enjoy researching dobermans and their pedigrees; looking for longevity of lines, different styles, high quality health and appropriate health testing, correct conformation, adherence to the DPCA Standard, and a proven record by obtaining titles (inside and outside the conformation ring).
Please use the navigation above to find additional information on my dobermans, more information about me, and contact information.
