Dobermanns



Sonza Dobermanns have been established since the early 80s.  After taking a few years break in the early 2000s, we are back to breeding and showing!  We focus on breeding sound and healthy Dobermanns that make great family companions.  We avoid following fads, trends and popular sires and try to stay true to our core values when making breeding decisions.  We strive for each generation to be better than the last, and do this by selecting sires that are complementary to our girls and consider all aspects (health, temperament and conformation) when selecting which puppies to retain from a given litter.  We have bred and campaigned numerous show and obedience champions, including a ROM earner. 

John is a licensed judge for Group 3 & 6 (Gundogs and Utility) and is also an obedience judge.  Being a veterinarian he takes health very seriously and we are most certainly not a kennel that will forsake health and soundness for show prestige!  We are very thorough in our genetic health testing and are currently one of very few Australian breeders actively participating in the UC Davis VGL Dobermann Genetic Diversity Study, which promotes breeding towards longevity and improved genetic diversity throughout the breed!  In addition all breeding stock are tested for DCM1, DCM2 and vWD.

Please take the time to look over our website and our dogs.  If you may be interested in purchasing a puppy or older dog from us, please see our for sale page.
