MiraVia...the beautiful way to train, show, and enjoy Dobermans!
4 weeks old learning the litter box
MiraVia Dobermans is a purposeful breeder. We breed on a limited basis, using natural breeding techniques and genetic testing on our females and males to improve the overall quality of the breed. Our Dobes live in our home as part of the family.
MiraVia Dobermans are fed a biologically appropriate raw diet and raised in an environment free of harmful toxins as we feel this provides the best chance at overall vitality. We feed Answers fermented raw food, whole food supplements and herbs. We work closely with Austin Lynn who has extensive nutrition knowledge.
We are members of the Avidog Breeder College for up to date breeding information as well as week to week puppy development milestones. Our puppies are stimulated from days 3 - 16 with neurological stimulation as well as Early Scent Introduction. Starting at week 3 the puppies begin litter box training which continues until the ears are cropped. At week 8 after ear cropping, the puppies begin individual crate training and are transitioned to outdoor potty training. This process makes for a smooth transition to their new forever homes.
Structural evaluations are done at 8 weeks using the Puppy Puzzle method.
MiraVia puppies are not subjected to “over vaccination”. We titer our dams two weeks before whelping, the titer is sent to the University of Wisconsin for a nomograph. A nomograph is a tool used to help determine the optimal vaccination window when the dams maternal antibodies are no longer effectively protecting the puppies. As a result, we aren’t introducing unnecessary vaccines into the puppies system. Our puppies are titered two weeks after the puppy series to insure immunity. Our adults are also titered and will not be vaccinated unless the immunity is under the appropriate levels. This process promotes healthier dogs and removes the risk of unnecessary vaccine side effects.
We do not condone or support the breeding of the "white"/albino Doberman as it is a genetic mutation.
