Price?

Breeders charge anywhere from $2000 to $3000 for German Pinscher Puppies based on color and gender.  Black and Tan puppies command a higher price in most cases due to the demand for this genetically recessive color.   Price is NOT an indicator of quality, health or temperament as all breeders regardless of their ethical standards will charge these prices.  Buyers should fully investigate breeders with regards to contractual health guarantees and parent health certifications, visit the breeders home to evaluate the conditions their puppies were raised in and the temperament of parents as well as do their research on the inbreeding coefficients of any litter you are considering buying from.  Understand that the USDA requires that breeders with more than four females to make all sales in person with buyers or be licensed with USDA.  If even one puppy is sold “sight unseen” they are required to submit to USDA inspection and liscensure.  This measure is to crack down on unscrupulopus breeders who sell unhealthy puppies on the internet and is designed to protect the puppy buyer.  For more information visit AKC’s Government Relations FAQ.   Ear cropping and shipping may be additional costs for the new owner.

What about ear cropping?     

 I prefer not to crop ears on pet puppies but we can crop if requested.  Our show prospects ears are cropped as this is my preference in the show ring, however

the surgery is primarily cosmetic.   For those people who want this surgery, depending on where you live, your puppy may be better off coming into your home

first.  Surgical aftercare is the responsibility of the new owner as is months of taping and posting once healed and owners will need either a local vet experienced

in ear crops or an experienced GP, Doberman, Boxer, Schnauzer or Dane breeder/owner who can support you in the months following with ear aftercare, taping

and posting.  Some vets will not provide aftercare and taping to puppies they did not crop due to the liability if the ears fail to stand.  The puppy’s training and

socialization must proceed as it would with any other puppy without cropped ears, so ear cropping requires even more dedication on the part of new ownerss to

get it right.   

What about tail docking and dewclaws?

Tails are typically banded at birth or within the first 24 hours so those buyers who want a natural tail need to get their reservations in and pay in full for the puppy prior to their birth.  You will get the puppy chosen at birth to be kept natural and we will not be able to factor in temperament.  Deposits are refunded in full if there is no puppy in your preferred color/gender.  Tail banding is not traumatic or painful to the puppy.   A tiny orthodontic rubber band is placed on the tail at the desired length.  The blood flow is restricted to the end of the tail causing the tail to go numb, wither, dry up and fall off within 2-3 days of banding.   Dewclaws are typically removed unless being exported to a country where dewclaw removal is prohibited.
