Back Yard Breeders and Puppy Mills are breeding for the profit, not for the welfare of the breed, please check out our Health Issues Of the Doberman page, the story (s) you will read there is from a friend of mine and it is sad, but very true.

Please take a few moments and watch this video.  It will help you understand, why you want to get a puppy fro a reputable Breeder.

Garjan Dobermans stand behind their puppies, we offer LIFE time return policy. (re homing, WE DO NOT BUY YOUR DOG BACK) ALL RETURNS ARE FINAL! NO EXCEPTIONS

We at Garjan Dobermans, spend weeks doing research on our pedigrees prior to breeding, we breed for health, disposition, conformation and longevity.
 At Garjan Dobermans: We will not sell you a show puppy with out a co-ownership and contract.
We will not sell you a pet/companion with out a spay/neuter contract and we require a vet certificate for PROOF of Spay/Neuter with Microchip identification prior to getting puppies AKC (LIMITED) papers.

 All of Garjan puppies are the same price. $3000.00. show, pet, cropped or not cropped. (YES, I PLACE UN CROPPED PUPPIES) I ask for 500.00 when the puppies are 6 to 7 weeks old, this pays $450.00 for the cropping in Illinois  (I am in Michigan) and the 50.00 left over from each puppy pays for gas and lodging. Then I ask for 2500.00 when you pick up your puppy.

IF you get a puppy and you do not want her cropped. I ask you to pick up your puppy for the 3000.00 the weekend prior to the puppies getting cropped which is usually the first Monday after they are 8 weeks old.  

Garjans Procedures: 

35 days after breeding we get an Ultrasound. and let the people on the list know we are expecting puppies.  Sonja US is on May 9th Abby's is May 16th. 

Day 57 or 58 after breeding we go to the vet and get an X-ray and we are penciled in on the books in the event we need a C-section, this helps prevent the Emergency Call at 3 AM cost. I can still call at 3 am but they do not charge as much.

Puppies are delivered at home, the first one or two are born in our bed, we have special bedding for them to whelp on, the labor process can take hours and I try to sleep when I can, the first two weeks I do not sleep much. Then after the first few puppies are born we move to the whelping box in the base of my closet.

As the puppies are born we tie off umbilical cords with wax free floss, we weigh them and time of birth and they get a colored paper collar that will be their color they will have coinciding folders with their information vaccinations and worming etc.  

Day 3 or 4, depending when they are born, they go to the vet and get their first exam and tails and dues are removed.

The next day I start Bio Sensory training.  

From: "Developing High Achievers"

by Dr. Carmen Battaglia

May 1995 AKC Gazette

The U.S. Military in their canine program developed a method that still serves as a guide to what works. In an effort to improve the performance of dogs used for military purposes, a program called "Bio Sensor" was developed. Later, it became known to the public as the "Super Dog" Program. Based on years of research, the military learned that early neurological stimulation exercises could have important and lasting effects. Their studies confirmed that there are specific time periods early in life when neurological stimulation has optimum results. The first period involves a window of time that begins at the third day of life and lasts until the sixteenth day. It is believed that this interval of time is a period of rapid neurological growth and development, and therefore is of great importance to the individual.

The "Bio Sensor" program was also concerned with early neurological stimulation in order to give the dog a superior advantage. Its development utilized six exercises, which were designed to stimulate the neurological system. Each workout involved handling puppies once each day. The workouts required handling them one at a time while performing a series of five exercises. Listed in no order of preference the handler starts with one pup and stimulates it using each of the five exercises. The handler completes the series from beginning to end before starting with the next pup. The handling of each pup once per day involves the following exercises:

1. Tactile stimulation - holding the pup in one hand, the handler gently stimulates (tickles) the pup between the toes on any one foot using a Q-tip. It is not necessary to see that the pup is feeling the tickle. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds. 

2. Head held erect - using both hands, the pup is held perpendicular to the ground, (straight up), so that its head is directly above its tail. This is an upward position. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds

3. Head pointed down - holding the pup firmly with both hands the head is reversed and is pointed downward so that it is pointing towards the ground. Time of stimulation 3 - 5 seconds 

4. Supine position - hold the pup so that its back is resting in the palm of both hands with its muzzle facing the ceiling. The pup while on its back is allowed to sleep struggle. Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds. 

5. Thermal stimulation - use a damp towel that has been cooled in a refrigerator for at least five minutes. Place the pup on the towel, feet down. Do not restrain it from moving. Time of stimulation 3-5 seconds, then they are held and loved offered a bottle, I do bottle feed all the puppies, with the motherís milk just to make sure they get all they can to grow properly. Optimum Food for Optimum Growth.

The Bio Sensory is done until they go to their new homes OR I can no longer hold them. 

At 2 weeks they are given Pryantel, ALL the dogs will be treated. 

At 3 weeks they are given Safeguard (Panacure) for 3 days.  Again All the dogs will be treated. I have a common area that they go in to and their mother can reinfect them with parasites if I do not treat everyone. 

At 4 weeks they are given a vaccination that is only parvo and distemper it is called a Neo Par. it is for puppies over 3 weeks of age. 

5 weeks they are treated with Albon. It is to treat for Cocci a parasite that the Panacure does not kill, again every one is treated. 

6 weeks they are treated with the Panacure again.  

7 weeks they are vaccinated again with the Neo par.  This give them immunity in case there was a parvo or distemper puppy/dog at the vet in the past 6 months. 

8 Weeks this is the week they go to the vet for Cropping... This is where the puppies are given a complete checkup before they are put under anesthesia for ear cropping. Dr. will not crop a puppy that is not 100% perfect.  (If you live in the LA area, you can pick your puppy up at the vets office, for a small fee tthey will do all the after care for you, I can help you arrange this when they are cropped)

I bring the puppies home and Treat ears with NFZ Powder and gold bond medicated powder mix.  (you will have a kit that come with your puppy I will show you how to care for the ears AND I have written instructions and Video as well.)

9 weeks the sutures are removed from the ears and the ears are re taped to the cup. They cannot be put up on post YET they must be healed in order to wrap the ears properly, Also at 9 weeks after sutures are removed they are given a 7-way vaccination. 

10 weeks the ears are usually up in wraps and they are ready to go home. 

IF and only IF you want to, you can get your puppy after cropping and I can show you how to care for the ears. Your vet may or may not remove sutures. some will some will not, you will have proof your puppy was done at a vet office, this too makes a difference to some vets.

I have an excellent video to help you with posting the ears. It is not hard and gets easier every time you do it.  

Your puppy will need another 7 way vaccination at 13 weeks and then a third vaccination and Rabies at 16 weeks your puppy is done for a year. 

I am not sure IF I left anything out, IF you are reading this and you have questions, Please let me know.. I would be happy to hear from you and your questions and opinions do matter.. 

People say things to me and I have to research and process them. BUT I ALWAYS Do Right by the Doberman Breed.  

Thank you for your time..
