TEPHILLOT DOBERMANS is located in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee. TEPHILLOT is Hebrew for "prayers of praise" and embodies what we believe. Our farm is located in South East Tennessee just North of Chattanooga, in the beautiful community of Dayton.
We moved to Tennessee after graduating from Veterinary school in Auburn, Alabama. We purchased our first Doberman puppy, named Sasha, while in Veterinary School. Since that time, we have owned Dobermans off and on for the past 20 years and decided to share our love of this dog breed with others by raising and selling dogs that are ideal as family pets and companions, or even for working situations.
We have purchased Dobermans from Nashville (TN), Knoxville (TN), Georgia, and Alabama. We have seen some great dogs with wonderful dispositions, as well as some not so great dogs with horrible temperaments. We have made a conscious effort to acquire Dobermans with solid, stable, well-socialized personalities. We have only AKC registered dogs.
The Doberman is not a vicious breed and we only raise our dogs as devoted family members. We do not support breeders that raise Dobermans to be vicious. The adults and puppies spend a large majority of their time in our home and can often be found sleeping next to one of the beds in our house. Dobermans make wonderful companions as well as providing excellent protection for the family and we hope that many other people can experience the love and devotion of being owned by a Doberman.
