Welcome to Rio Dobermans and Boston Terriers! Home of Best of Breed 2014 Westminster winner “Denzel”, as well as many other champions, Westminster qualifiers, and Best in Show specialty winners.
We are responsible and reputable Doberman Pinscher and Boston Terrier show exhibitors and hobby breeders. We have owned purebred dogs for over 31 years, and are breeders of merit with the American Kennel Club. Rio is dedicated to promoting & protecting the health, temperament, trainability, soundness and overall integrity of the breed. We do not condone or support the breeding of the “white”/albino Doberman as it is a genetic mutation.
Our Dobermans & Boston Terriers that we have bred compete in conformation, obedience, agility, rally and serve as therapy dogs. Public education and having our dogs as ambassadors is of great importance to us. The Rio Dobermans entertain the public on Labor Day at the Minnesota State Fair on the Doberman Drill team, as well as earn Working Aptitude Certificates, demonstrating that Dobermans demonstrate the characteristics required of a dog to be a stable companion and resolute protector. We have litters of puppies on occasion. Buying a puppy is a lifelong commitment.
We hope you enjoy your visit and find helpful information about the Nobel and intelligent breeds. Please feel free to call us to find out more about any upcoming breedings.
