Breeding and showing dogs are passions I have pursued for over 40 years. At times I had only a shoe-string budget, in later years I’ve had the luxury to support a team of top professionals. AlCher Dobermans goes back to 1972. I have bred and owned over 150 champions over my lifetime, including Dobermans, Whippets, Pointers, Great Danes and Shih Tzus, some of whom I showed myself, while others were shown by top handlers. I am privileged to have known most all of notable dog experts from the past, and was fortunate to have been mentored by many legendary breeders in the 1970’s and 80’s, which gave me a solid foundation in Dobermans. The great Bettye Carter of Classic Kennel had the strongest impact on me, helping shape my vision of the ideal Dobermans, while giving me insight into all that breeding entails. When Bettye succumbed to cancer in the late 80’s I took a break from dogs to start my business – Benefit Consultants Inc. I enjoyed great success in business, but eventually my passion drew me back to dogs, and I re-entered the world of showing in 2000 with Ch. Monarch’s One Cool Guy. While I love the competition, my interest in dogs has never been about my ego or personal recognition. The dogs themselves have always come first and I have always been happy to be part of the team, while others bask in the spotlight. As a result I have enjoyed considerable success co-owing and co-breeding dogs, most recently Dobermans – under the Phillmar Kennel name. Partnering with Phillmar brought me the pleasure of co-owning both BIS BISS CH Phillmar Thunderella CD and BIS BISS CH Phillmar X-Static ROM.- and breeding and owning dozens of other Doberman champions. I look back fondly on the joy these dogs have brought me, and I will always want to see bits and pieces of them living on in their progeny. I am excited about future generations and look forward to producing many more beautiful Dobermans under the AlCher kennel prefix. As always, my goal is to continue to breed the all around Doberman who excels in the conformation and obedience show rings, and at home as a beloved companion.
The photo gallery below is just a sampling of dogs I have owned, bred and or co-owned over the years. Enjoy!
