Black Raven Kennels

Welcome to Black Raven Kennels. While I began playing in 2004, this kennel was inherited from a dear friend in 2006 as we worked on Dobermans together. Since then, I have honored our tradition of breeding fine quality Dobermans. I do provide education on how to play this game but I do not give out 100% information. Never have and never will.

Instead of asking other people why/how they have my dogs or use them at stud, I would suggest asking me. It makes no sense to ask someone else.


632 Champions Bred

553 Champions Finished

176 Grand Champions Bred

30 Merit Dogs Bred

Fun (incomplete)highlights:


My first GOLD GCH/Bronze Merit in this game the entire time playing [2004-current]
is Phantasm’s Smooth As Silk.

Bronze GcH BRKs Holmgang, silver sire merit, along with Silver GcH BRKs For Whom The Bell Tolls UD RIP.

GCH BRKDRs Life After Death 99.95 - First 99.95 of the Collies as far as I know.

GCH BRKDRs Afterlife King 99.90 - My first 99.90



Silver Gch/Silver Merit BRKs SHEEN has passed onto the rainbow bridge. He has left a wonderful legacy for our breed. Thank you to everyone who chose to use him at stud! He has produced 34 champion progeny and I do keep direct descendants to continue the line.

My FIRST gold DAM in any breed is my girl GCH BRKs Forgotten Ailment
The Ailment bloodline story is below-great teamwork!

My third Gold/Bronze Merit Alaskan Malamute occurred in my Phantasm kennel. Gold GcH Phantasm’s Sarzerac.

Sarz went on to produce the first 99.70 Alaskan Malamute, PLATINUMGcH Shotput’s Something New. Bred and owned by Shotput, who in turned produced my first 99.70 litter honored with the tradition of the wedding rhyme of something olde, something blue, etc.


Something New:

I have left the Alaskan Malamutes as the point schedule is too damned high. A lot of others have left as well.

The Ailment lines began with my dog, Ch. BRKs Autopsy Room 4, being bred to KonaBlechen’s GCH VB Mysterious Black Angel. From there GCH VB Mysterious Ailment was born. Both Silver GCH and Silver sire, this dog went on to produce many progeny that are still seen in the ring and in pedigrees as of current. I am proud to have worked with Kona to create this line. Ultimately, a special line that led to my FIRST gold DAM in ANY breed I've had, GCH BRKs Forgotten Ailment who I retired 1/4/2022, and put in a forever home so she may live on forever. I plan on continuing this line and theme. It’s been a great experience.
