Can anyone give me some feedback on Kimbertal Kennels in Pennsylvania? Anyone ever dealt with them or purchased a dog from them? And how satisfied were you? I live not far from there and I am considering purchasing a pup. They seem to have good European bloodlines. Any input would be helpful. Thanks

Ok a few things don't make sense. 1. His agent was there and had enough knowledge/authority to ok docking tails. She did turn the puppy over to us with no problems or statements such as "these pups have not been evaluated by Mr Yarnell yet." She appeared to have full knowledge of the workings of Kimbertal ...their policies etc. 2. HOW if the puppies were not evaluated did Bob Yarnell know I had the pick of the litter? 3. IF the pups were never seen how would he know there was a problem w/ demodex? (Our vet checked the puppy and he was fine. Never had a mange problem)
It ended up we had to get a lawyer, pay $50 for the papers, AND Bob Yarnell named the puppy "Kimbertal's Klein Dumkopf"....< means Kimbertal's Little Dummy" ......That annoyed me more than anything else. Oh well he ended being "Kimbertal's Klein Dumkopf TT, CDX, B, Wh"......went thru training w/ the Bensalem Police Department and worked in SchH and personal protection training and was sold at 4 years old . "Scar" as he was called was a helluva dog but I personally wouldn't care to deal w/ Kimbertal from my own personal experience.

In my opinion breeders that have a paypal or credit card options on their websites are usually breeding way too many litters and are not breeding in the best interests of the doberman pinscher breed overall. In my opinion these large scale breeders are in it strickly for the money and don't seem to care much about what happens to the puppies.
You also might check the PA rescues in Kimbertal's area to see how many dogs they end up with that Kimbertal doesn't take back when the owners can't keep them for various reasons.

I know alot of people do not like Kimbertal because they are a large breeding kennel. They claim Kimbertal is a puppy mill. That is NOT true. All the pups are raised in loving homes until old enough to return to the kennel. They are then sold almost immediately to new homes. They get surprise inspections by the state of PA and by the AKC and have not been found in any wrong doing.
My girl was expensive, but she is extremely smart and has a great personality.
Most doberman/rott breeders only breed occasionally. Kimbertal has cornered the market on supply and demand. Most people dont want to wait 2-3 years for a pup or w/ strings attached. They do back up their sales with a warranty and offer rebates if you title the dog in aKC obedience.
Dont listen to those website forums, because they are nothing but breeder bashers and slanderers. They act like thier own crap doesnt stink, but everyone elses does.
The only downside with Kimbertal is that their dogs championships are all european. AKC doesnt recognize their international accomplishments, but the pups are AKC registered. The studs earned it, so AKC should recognize thier titles, but they dont.
If you are willing to wait for a small breeder to produce pups, then that is great. I didnt want to wait and they had lots of pups to choose from. They go fast.
