Our Litters

Aritaur have an international reputation for top quality puppies with sound character and good health. 

I am a Kennel Club Assured Breeder of many years, and a Council 5 Star Licensed Breeder.

My first consideration is to find great homes for my puppies who regardless of what else owners like to do, are sold always as companions first.

If you are considering the breed as a first time Dobermann owner, come and meet us and Dobes at a show near to you, or if we can arrange it, to meet other Aritaur owners near you for a walk with their dogs to fully understand all aspects of Dobe ownership and not just to see cute puppies.

Aritaur dogs are trained and work in all disciplines, so if you want to show, do agility or work your dog, we can try and guide you to the right puppy in a litter. Although I will do my very best to meet your requirements for showing or working, I can’t provide any guarantees of how a puppy might develop. 

Aritaur dogs are health tested for hips, vWD, eyes (where possible atm), and DCM (age dependent), with all results available to view and never any offence taken at being asked. 

Aritaur puppies are homed with 5 weeks free insurance, are microchipped, and have their pedigree and KC registration are supplied at the time of sale, a week’s supply of food, a detailed puppy pack, inclusion on my Aritaur owners What’s App groups, my FB group, and lifetime support from me. 

Reservations start early for our puppies, but it does of course depend on what puppies are born, so please mail for a chat. 

Friday with her puppies

I’m having a huge number of calls at the moment and just can’t answer them all – sorry, so for puppy enquiries PLEASE EMAIL in the first instance to tell me a bit about yourself.  We can then have a chat to answer each other’s questions in more detail, I can put your name on a provisional waiting or reserve list (depending on possible availability).  There is no fee to join a waiting list – I only take a puppy deposit after we have met, and after puppies have safely arrived.

If you come to visit, please do so with all members of the family if possible; I can’t sell to people who I haven’t met.

Please appreciate my time is very limited and my dogs come before any of us


I am usually too busy with dogs and horses to keep my website updated, so please email me at jayk@aritaur.co.uk with an introduction about yourselves, and we can arrange a chat to answer each other’s questions. Thank you

‘Picks’ & ‘Lasts’

NB: PLEASE READNo puppy is ever chosen until 7 weeks when breeders assess their characters and decide which are suitable for which homes. Even breeders won’t select any puppy they are keeping until then because characters and conformation are not revealed until 7 weeks. There is no point in choosing a puppy on looks if it doesn’t have the basic character you need.

As I often hold out with a special puppy for a show or working home, the best often IS the last.
