Jambolou Dobermans

Jambolou Dobermans is located on 15 wooded acres in Gardners, PA which is in close proximity to the battlefields of historic Gettysburg.  We are nestled in orchard country and our property is surrounded by woodlands and fruit fields. We are within a nice drive from Maryland, Delaware, Northern VA, New Jersey, and Wash D.C.

"Jambolou" is named after my daughter Lauren and my late son, Jamie.

We are members of the York Kennel Club of York, Pa. as well as a member of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America.  All of our adult dobermans are dual registered with the AKC and UKC. Our dogs are both owner/ handled as well as professionally handled.    

We are a Pennsylvania Licensed Private K1 Home Kennel where we are monitored and regulated by the state. Our dogs live and are raised inside our home as well as our puppies.

We enjoying showing our dogs in both the AKC and UKC confirmation show rings. 

We are trying to raise our dogs in the most holistic way possible and do our best to pass on our knowledge to our customers through recommendations, educational materials, and referrals to professionals.

Please feel free to browse our pages to look at our dogs.

My #1 goal is to raise puppies with excellent temperaments and intelligence. We have placed many show prospects into family homes, just to ensure that our puppies live happy lives. Many of our puppies have gone into Therapy and Service dog training homes.

I breed for black/rust and red/rust only, however, one of our males will throw blue. Our dogs are free of Z factor and I do not believe in the breeding of albino dobermans. Our dogs come from champion show lines, are AKC pointed, and/or are Champion titled themselves.

We DO NOT ship our puppies. We require new owners to personally visit our home and pick their puppy up when they are ready to leave.

If you are interested in adopting an adult doberman in need of a home, please check our our link page for the Delaware Valley Doberman Pinscher Assistance or DAR&E organization for more information. Please be advised that these organizations place stringent qualifications and requirements on prospective homes, but there is a great need to find homes for these dogs.

Also, there are many dogs of all ages in shelters who desperately need homes. I highly recommend watching HBO's documentary on shelter dogs! 

"One Nation Under Dog: Stories of Fear, Loss, and Betrayal."

You can find this documentary ON Demand with both Dish Network and Direct TV. It is very disturbing to watch, but it shows what happens to dogs and puppies that do not find homes. If you have space in your home and heart, please consider adoption. You can help make a difference in a shelter dog's life. 

We are currently updating our website to make it more user friendly as well as offering links, downloads, videos, educational articles, etc., for those who not only already own dobermans, but for those considering adding a doberman to their household.

Whether you are looking for a puppy, an older adult, a retired breeder, or a rescue dobe. Our goal is to educate you on the best possible care for your current or new family member and bring attention to the health problems that effect this breed.

The best way to reach me is via email by using our CONTACT ME link.

Thank you for visiting! Come again soon.

We are a Pennsylvania K-2 Licensed Private Kennel!

Help put Puppy Mills out of business!! They are cruel, uncaring, and do no good for the doberman breed! Dogs are NOT livestock! Beware of buying from Amish breeders, especially in the Bucks, Chester, & Lancaster County, PA areas!  Puppy Mills are the main supplier to Pet Stores and contribute to the number of dogs turned over to shelters. Some of their websites are disguised to look like reputable sites, but they are all run by the Amish. Examples are Greenfieldpuppies.com, Keystonepuppies.com, and Lancasterpuppies.com. There are many more. Beware and educate yourself!

R & V Metal Works is a recent company that I did business with. They make everything from ornaments, wall decor, signs, pet grave markers, etc out of metal.

They did a custom sign for me for an area of my property where we bury our beloved pets who have passed and I wanted to mark the area. The sign turned out beautiful and I was thrilled that they were able to do custom work. I am attaching a few of their items that they currently have listed on Ebay as well as a few pics of items I bought. They are working on a website and I will add that once they have it up and running.

Currently, you would have to purchase directly or via ebay.  They do not have a Ebay Shop, so you will have to Search to find them. From the MY Ebay screen, click on the ADVANCED button at the top right part of the screen. It takes you to a Search Filter. Scroll down and look for Seller Search. Put in " crash1tomany ". This will take you to her current listings OR your can email the owner, Virginia, at aroundtheseams@cs.com





Below are 2 of the signs that I had custom made. I edited / created the images in my paint shop pro program and sent them to R & V Metal Works as a .png file.

Then they uploaded the images in to their computer and cut the signs.

They do have other finishes. I am so happy with these! Virginia is able to do almost anything!

Featured Pet Product

My dogs destroy stuffed animals. Completely tear them apart.. de-stuff them.. de-squeak as well.  Let me tell you that they didnt last 5 minutes in this house. 15 dobermans.... stuffies dont stand a chance!

Then I found Fluff n Tuff stuffed animals. My first stuffie was Edsel the Elephant. I figured I would give it a try and found that my dogs absolutely loved him. Did not attempt to tear him apart like they have done countless times before. So I bought a few more and let me tell you.. they have not tried to rip them apart at all. These have been here for months and are all still intact. ( I have the squirrel, skunk, raccoon, bunny, fox, and cow)

Now, I am not saying that they will withstand all heavy duty chewers, but so far I am very pleased with the products from this company. I recommend their products. Check them out!
