The four colors together for study


We know since we began building this site folks throughout the America's - well through out the world who have spent untold hours enjoying the world of the Doberman Pincher through pictures offered by both owners and sellers consistently comment on the consistent structure, color tones & ear crop quality of the Hoytt Dobe. Then there are the folks who ask a few questions about how we capture so many  formal poses which we will as with most questions asked try to pass on some of our knowledge. But one of the areas we still have not found an easy answer to is the control of natural lighting.

Keep the following in mind when you want to replicate color tones. In effect while the physical class of our Dobes are their birthright, the time of day, the lack of cloud cover, cloud cover as well as the changing position of the sun from month to month  should be considered when going for that perfect formal photo. Today our 'phones' can also capture the perfect shot that can challenge even the big boys toys. Something as basic as keeping the sun behind you will make the difference. But camera at hand when without a plan the 'kid' catches your eye doing perhaps that silly thing you will always remember him or her for but would be hard pressed to explain to those outside your world you can pull up the photos. And you may have captured that personal million to one shot. As I did with the original photo of my son and Hoytts Bewitched back in the seventies we turned into a lithograph called Pals or the silly photo of my Lex upside down in bed taken last year found on our Planned Parenthood page.

On the following note to our clients.

Do also send us those photos that show the private side of life with your Hoytt Dobe it will bring smiles to other Hoytt Dobe owners as well as those folks who must live without a great Dobe.

Black and Rust ...

Know that there are different shades of black - from a dirty dark gray to a deep ebony while registration papers say black. Even the rust marking while called rust can be a washed out straw to so dark you almost can't tell there are markings.




Red and Rust ...



Blue and Rust ... we think the Hoytt Dobe in blue should be called Silver and Rust


Fawn and Rust...our fawns have a gold hue complemented by rich rust markings





White and Rust...are you kidding??? You really did not expect to find white Dobermans here...we also don't breed SNAIBLERS
