Garretts Dobermans focuses on raising Dobermans in a loving family environment. Pups brought up in a family setting from day 1 make better pets, rather family members. Our primary concern is that pups have received plenty of love and will be ready to be a solid part of your family and provide protection.
There are two breeders associated with Garretts' Dobermans:
The Garretts which includes their three children and the Watsons (family members of the Garretts with equal work ethic) who have three older chilren.
When the pups are 7 to 8 weeks old, placement of the pups begins. If owners wish to pick up their pup from the litter's home site, they may directly pick the pup up at 7 weeks of age. For pups needing to be shipped, this will be done at 8 weeks old.
The Garretts own Scarlett (retired family member) as well as Sable and Ella. The Garretts' first Doberman family member, Aggie, passed away July 2010. She is dearly missed. The site and our breeding practices all began with Aggie. Her wonderful nature with our children inspired us to educate people on Dobermans as well as produce awesome four legged family members. We hope you learn from the site and what owners share within it.
The Watsons own Pyro & Ellie (both now retired family members), Violet (Sable's daughter), and Doc (new sire).

The Garretts had to say good-bye to their beloved friend, Aggie, in July 2010. Aggie was our first Doberman. She taught us what a wonderful breed Dobermans are and is the reason for this site. From Aggie's final litter before retiring to pet status, we kept Scarlett. Scarlett is now retired. Scarlett's last litter was born in January of 2009. From that litter, we kept a red and rust pup, Sable (currently in breeding program).
Additionally, we obtained a pup from Ellie/Pyro's litter born July 26, 2009 -- Ella. This pup is Scarlett's granddaughter. Ella (currently in breeding program) is blue/rust.
We encourage you to spend some time on this site. More specifically, spend time reading letters sent in from owners of pups from our previous litters. The temperaments of our Dobermans are exceptional. We spend a lot of time handling them as pups and they get lot of exposure to children.
If you have questions that are not answered on this site or simply want to contact us personally, you can

Look at these Girls! Faith and Violet in March. I wanted to again express how grateful we are to you for raising such a true to standard breed of dog. Sounds silly but you actually have changed my life. I never thought I would own a dog like this .
Well, please put us on a waiting list for your next litter. We would never consider going anywhere else. Our family does not overlook all the little extras you do with your pups to make them so special. Thanks! Tara " -- sent April 12, 2006

Buyers BEWARE: Do NOT ATTEMPT to buy pups from the classified ad site: www.OLX.com
I was alerted to search for misuse of my photos after someone reported driving several hours to pick up an older Doberman (sold using photos of my site) only to find out there was no Doberman. I have tried asking OLX to remove ads falsely using my photos but they claim without a watermark, they cannot. COPYRIGHTS protect me!
OLX response (which I have received several times from them on various ads I requested be removed) is an alarming reason not to remove ads. Sites like YouTube (which removed two pictures of mine used by someone else) are reputable and follow copyright rules. I would not trust any seller off OLX's site! There are plenty of reputable sites to search: NextDayPets.com, PuppyFind.com, QualityDog.com (to name a few).
From my recent experience with trying to get ads removed using my photos to sell pups, I would recommend staying away from ALL classified sites not specifically focused on selling dogs. It is now obvious to me that OLX is simply interested in having ad listings (free or not) and does not care if the advertiser is misrepresenting. Last bit of advice, contact the advertising company/site and ask how they protect you, the buyer...how can you rest assured the advertiser actually owns the dog(s)/pup(s) displayed in the ad.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------- SPECIAL NOTICE: We do not claim to have show quality Dobermans. Most of our Dobes are too large at adult age to even be considered. We breed for TEMPERAMENT. Our focus lies primarily in providing a dog that is trustworthy around young children .. while still maintaining the protector instinct.
No other claims are made by us regarding our Dobermans. --------------------------------------------------------------------------
