Welcome to Raindance Dobermans

Health. Temperament. Conformation.

Raindance is dedicated to preserving the correct temperament, health, and conformation in the Doberman. We are not a kennel, our dogs live with us as members of our family. We are active in showing in Conformation with our Dobermans (and Italian Greyhounds) and are members of the Doberman Pinscher Club of America. We do not condone or support the breeding of the “white”/albino Doberman as it is a genetic mutation.


Our Dogs

What Others Have to Say About Us

We joined the Raindance family in 2010. Once we met Susan and Chelsea, we knew right away that we had found the right place. The puppy application and interview were extremely thorough, and obviously meant to protect the puppy in all circumstances. The litters were raised right in their home, with tons of love and attention. Health testing was extensive with excellent results. Finally, the proof was in the pudding - Susan's own dogs were spectacular in every way; beautiful, personable, happy and healthy. While waiting for the litter to arrive, Susan was in contact often. She provided a list of all necessary puppy supplies, along with instructions on how to use them. Included were directions on feeding and supplements, ear posting, toys, nail care, crates and potty training. We were able to contact her at any time with questions and were thrilled when we finally came to pick up Hudson, our now 6-year old male. Hudson has been a wonderful addition to our family. Everyone that meets him, loves him. Handsome, sweet, and smart - he is an incredible boy. We decided to add to our family again with Raindance, and brought home Lila in February, 2016. Lila is currently being shown in conformation, as well as in Juniors with my daughter. Susan and Chelsea have lovingly and patiently mentored our 14 year-old daughter in and out of the ring. The support and care they have shown all of us is unsurpassed, and Lila has exceeded our hopes in every way. Susan and Chelsea James are the gold standard for all breeders. I really cannot recommend them more highly. They are there for us every step of the way, any time of the day (or night!). We are so grateful that they have trusted us with two of their puppies, and we would never look elsewhere for a Doberman. It has been nothing short of a pleasure to be part of the Raindance family. -Karey
