Health Clearances

At Kin Doberman, we believe one of the many key factors separating a responsible and ethical breeder from puppy mills and backyard breeders is regularly performing health clearances on one’s breeding lines, and having proof of it.

Our Dobermans being bred are tested for the following conditions & factors, and a copy of the clearances can be viewed by the selected new homes when meeting in person:

  • von Willebrand Disease (vWD)
  • OFA Eyes
  • OFA Dentition
  • OFA Patellar
  • Heart (ECG and/or Holter, starting at 2.5 years old)
  • Albinism (Z-factor)
  • Degenerative Myelopathy
  • DNA GPT Liver
  • DCM1 (PDK4)
  • DCM2
