Welcome to

Buckeye Hills Dobermans!

Buckeye Hills Dobermans is a breeder that breeds only a few litters a year and takes the time and care to make sure our pups get the best start possible. This includes food, vet checks, shots, testing and socialization. Few other breeders will talk to you about socialization even though it’s an important aspect for Dobermans. We have small dogs, and even rescue dogs on site, in order to expose our puppies to a variety of different environments and animals. When you take home a Buckeye Hills Dobermans puppy you can be assured he or she will be a great addition to your family. Just as an example, one of our dogs, a female named Raven, is in training to be a therapy dog. She is gentle and greets everyone she meets with a lick on the hand and a wag of her short tail.  She loves to play and wrestle and just run around.  Her first time meeting a kitten, she laid down and just waited for the kitten to approach her. These are the kinds of Doberman puppies we breed and the temperament we are looking for. We know, after you’re done searching all the other sites in Ohio, you’ll come back here.


April 24, 2014 – We Knew This Would Happen

We made an announcement below that we are planning a breeding between Gage and Raven this fall. We expected this to be a very popular breeding and in the first two days we received three reservations of the six we are going to take on this pairing. We know these two hard working and loving Dobermans were going to be popular and we were right. If you are interested in a pup from this beautiful pair we strongly suggest you get your deposit in before we close the reservation. You can make your reservation by filling out our reservation form and making a secure, 100% refundable deposit through Paypal.

Update April 21, 2014

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and we have to agree. We say we have working dogs here at Buckeye Hills that are also great family dogs. We tell you they are well socialized. Why should you believe us? Because our dogs speak for themselves. Take a look at the two pictures below taken yesterday. Gage, our Doberman with the green collar gets along with other dogs at the lake shore. People are afraid of the reputation of Dobermans. You don’t have to be with a Buckeye Hills Dobermans. We look for great lines and great personalities as well. As you can see Gage gets along with everyone. He’s the perfect example of what a Doberman should be. The puppies he produces will inherit this attitude as well and make a wonderful addition to any family. Interested in one of his puppies? Check out our reservation page.




Huge Announcement – Update 04/19/2014

We have some wonderful news! Today we have put up a reservation form and are starting to take reservations for the Gage/Raven pairing we expect in November. Please take a look at the update below for more news on both these beautiful Dobermans. We expect this reservation list to fill fast and we will be accepting only six reservation slots. Puppies will go on a first-come first-served basis. If you want the best selection of what we expect to be one beautiful litter of future hard-working dogs, get your deposit in early. Unlike most other breeders you never have to worry about losing your deposit for any reason. Check out our deposit policy for more details.

Upcoming Breeding
November 2014
Buckeye Hills is proud to announce our upcoming breeding of Raven and Gage. Both parents will be fully health tested before breeding. This breeding will be taking place in November. Raven and Gage’s pairing will result in some very intelligent, medium to medium-high drive, and loving puppies.
Raven has two speeds…running and sleeping. She has the sweetest temperament and alerts you of strangers, which is typical of a Doberman. Once she knows you are ok, you won’t be able to go anywhere without her following you. She loves running and playing with other dogs at the dog park.

Gage is a 90lb lap dog! LOL! He is the VERY definition of Velcro dog. He is super intelligent and is excelling at all of his training. Gage has never met a stranger on all of his outings, but he does run the perimeter of the yard to let everyone know he is there!

These puppies will be highly intelligent and excel at whatever task is set before them. This will be a vwd clear/carrier litter. Raven is DCM genetic clear. We are waiting on Gage’s test results.
As always with contact us with any questions or comments you may have at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.com.

Also, the weather has finally warmed up enough that our Doberman’s are now asking to go outside. Naturally we oblige them. They can suffer from ‘cabin fever’ as badly as we do. Here are a couple of pictures of Autumn and Nike enjoying a warm Ohio day.

Update 3/13/14

Spring is ALMOST here! The dogs can feel it because they have been staying out longer and longer. We have a new blog posting up. It’s about how to prepare your home for a new Doberman puppy. Check it out because there is a lot of useful information.

We will be opening reservations for Raven and Kyron’s litter within the next month. For those of you that have already submitted a questionnaire, we will be sending out e-mails about when reservations are open. We will be taking six reservations for this litter. Deposits will be $300.

We have a new deposit policy. Your deposit will be completely refundable up until you have selected your new puppy. We will refund your deposit with no questions asked any time up to when it time to choose your new puppy. Puppy picking will take place around 4-6 weeks of age after our trainer has evaluated the litter. This will give each new puppy owner what each individual puppy is like. We hope this will help new owners when selecting their brand new Doberman. All puppies must be paid for by 6 weeks of age. Each puppy must be paid in full along with a signed sales contract before any puppy leaves us. This protects us, the puppy, and you. As always, if you have any questions, contact us at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.com.

We will have new pictures of Nike and Mercy up soon! Check back often.

Update: 1-14-14

Welcome to the New Year!  I hope you are all still holding true to your New Year’s Resolutions.  We are trying to stick to ours here a Buckeye Hills.

We have some VERY, VERY exciting news coming in February so check back often!

Gage is excelling in his obedience class.  Then he will be competing in April.  We can hardly contain our excitement.

We will be adding a Frequently Asked Question area very soon.  So, keep sending your questions.  And by the way, we LOVE the questions.  We strive to be honest and open at all times.

We are changing the dog food we feed to our beloved Dobermans.  We are switching to Earthborn Holistic.  It is a 4 -5 star food.  Our dogs are excelling on this food.  Their coats are shiner, they have more energy (which tires us out more J ), and have an overall healthier appearance.  Earthborn Holistic has never had food recall, and we have been more than pleased so start a new working relationship with them.  They even have a UPCs for Trees! Program that is just awesome.The dogs’ favorite is the Primitive Natural.  Check out their website: http://www.earthbornholisticpetfood.com/us/.  All of our puppies will go home with a small bag of it to go home with.

New Blog post is up, sorry for the delay.  This month is all about Hip Dysplasia in Dobermans.  This is a health disorder the most large breed dogs, even Dobermans, suffer from.  This blog is a little longer than most because there is a lot information on this topic. As always, any questions or comments, feel free to e-mail us at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.com.


image20image19Update: 12/20/13

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!!!  I hope you and your family have a great holiday season.
It’s been a busy time of year here at the Hills.  :)  Autumn is doing super well, and she is already part of the pack.  Miss Autumn loves to snuggle, and she follows us everywhere!
Gage has had his first obedience class and has tremendous focus!  The instructors have been blown away by him so far.  We are very proud! :)  We can’t wait to see him in his first obedience show.
image18image21We will have a new blog up in January.  And we will have a litter late in 2014.  We will open reservations in summer.  Keep watching!
Merry Chirstmas and see you in the New Year! If you have any questions, comments, or want to see a particular subject addressed in our blogs, please feel free to contact us at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.com.

Update 11/23/2013

First and foremost, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!  We hope this time of year finds you well!  We have several updates here at Buckeye Hills!

Raven just celebrated her first birthday at the end of October!  Happy belated birthday to Miss Raven!  We will be doing her health testing after her second birthday and as long as everything checks out, she will have her first litter of puppies!  So stay tuned!

We will be adding a new addition to our family on December 2nd!  We are getting a gorgeous fawn female that we will be naming Autumn.  She is coming from a great breeder in Idaho, Grand Teton Dobermans.  We are excited to watch this little girl grow up right here!

Gage is starting his first obedience class in December.  At that time we will be joining our local breed club, Columbus All Breed.  We will then be showing Gage in his first obedience show in April.  We are very excited, and we know Gage will do excellent.  Gage’s pedigree just came in from AKC so look for it soon under his name.  You can see what excellent lines he comes from.

Lastly, as you know, November’s blog is all about vwd in Dobermans.  Well, we just had a fellow Doberman lover and owner who’s baby girl died during surgery to be spayed.  Her Doberman was not tested by the breeder she obtained her from, and she went into surgery without being tested.  Unfortunately, her baby girl did not make it off the surgical table.  After the tragic event, the vet tested the dog, and she did come back vwd affected.  vWD is a very real problem in Dobermans, and Dobies do die from this awful genetic disorder.  Please, Please, Please consider a breeder who does ALL the health testing on their Dobermans.  Do not settle for a breeder who does not take health testing seriously.  An untested litter may be cheaper, but you could end up losing your baby because of it being untested.  At Buckeye Hills, ALL of our Dobermans are health tested without exception, not only for vwd but also for hips, elbows, thyroid, and cardio.  We will never breed a dog that does not meet our rigorous standards no matter how many champions they have.

Again, have a very Happy Thanksgiving!  If you have any questions, comments, or want to see a particular subject addressed in our blogs, please feel free to contact us at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.com.

Update November 7, 2013

It’s been a busy fall here in the Hills.  Just the other day we did some fall baking for the dogs.  :)  We made some home made ice cream and tuna and cheese treats!  Our  dogs go crazy for them!  :) Since they are homemade we also don’t have to worry about them harming our dogs like some of the packaged treats do. Here’s a perfect recent example of the dangers of feeding your dogs anything but home made treats: Bailey’s Choice Dog Treats Recall Expanded
Because of the requests for the recipe we’ve received, here’s what we make for our dogs:
TunaCheese Dog Treats
2 cups flour
2 Eggs
3 Cans of Tuna in oil (This is important. Use oil packed tuna)
2 Cups Shredded Cheese
Mix all ingredients together… DO NOT DRAIN OIL FROM TUNA
Put in baking dish
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Do not overbake.  Take dish from oven when edges start to pull away a little from the pan.  You want the treats to be a little soft.  If you want them for training treats, do not make them very thick.
As we were cooking, Gage and Raven (along with the rest of the crew), were under foot at every turn.  Nothing escaped under their noses.  It’s true what they say, Dobies are truly velcro dogs.  You can’t do anything without them noticing.  Not that we’d want to of course! And, yes, they did get to lick the bowls!

Update October 3, 2013

Happy Halloween!  We have made it to fall, our favorite time of year around here! We hope you are having a fantastic fall as well.  We have a new blog up for you to read.  It’s all about Dobie Temperament.  We hope you find it informative and help you in your search for a new family member.  As always, if you have any questions, feel free to contact us at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.com. We have a photo shoot planned for Raven and Gage in the next couple of weeks with Spot on Photography.  So, check back often for new pictures being posted! We have been getting a lot of questions about when we are having a litter.  We are planning a litter around next fall/winter time.  If you are interested in one of these pups, feel free to fill out our Puppy Questionnaire located under the Puppy Tab.  We look forward to hearing from you!

News for September 27, 2013


We had our first conformation showing last weekend with Gage.  Although we didn’t place as high as we would have liked, we had a ton of fun.  :). Gage did an excellent job.  He passed his temperament test with flying colors.  The judge said he couldn’t wait and see how Gage grew, and he has some amazing potential.  We will also be taking a handling class in November through AKC.  Just another way we are always increasing our knowledge.
Gage will also be starting his Schutzhund training in the beginning of October.  The trainer said he is very smart and has a great temperament as well.  We are very excited.


Another blog post is up for you to read.  We get questions quite frequently about what is the best food to feed a Doberman.  We are attempting to tackle this topic this month.  We are just touching on the basics.  Check out this month’s blog titled, “What Should I Feed My Doberman” listed on the left.  And as always, e-mail us with any questions or topic you would like addressed at contact@ohiodobermanpuppies.comHAPPY FOOTBALL SEASONS!
