The Knappenberger family founded LoyalBlitz Dobermans with our first doberman, Tesla, who joined our family as a companion and for Kaydin to train and compete with in AKC and 4H events. Tesla inspired us to get more involved in dobermans as a breed, and we are now members of the Metropolitan Baltimore Doberman Pinscher Club, the Doberman Pinscher Club of America, and United Doberman Club. We kept Rip, one of Tesla's puppies, and continued showing and competing with him and also co-own several of Tesla's other pups.
We are committed to producing healthy dobermans with the temperament and conformation to compete in performance sports as well as the breed ring, while maintaining protective instincts and being a great family companion. We aspire to produce versatile companions and competition dogs.
See the "Puppies" page if you are interested in puppies from LoyalBlitz Dobermans. For the latest updates find us on Facebook at "LoyalBlitz Dobermans".
We have also joined the Doberman Diversity Project to support research on the health of dobermans, and the link to our dogs' results are posted under their profiles (see Our Dogs page). Also check out this great link that explains what is known (and not known) about the genetics behind doberman diseases, especially with respect to dilated cardiomyopathy: DDP Diseases
The meaning of LoyalBlitz:
We selected LoyalBlitz as our kennel name as a tribute to Tesla. We chose the name because Tesla is always loyal to our family and because we wanted to incorporate part of her AKC registered name (Shadeko's Rainbow Lightning), so we added "blitz", which means lightning in German.
