We present a first study of two open clusters Dolidze 32 and Dolidze 36 in the near-infrared region JHKs with the aid of PPMXL catalog. In our study, we used a method able to separate open cluster stars from those that belong to the stellar background. Our results of calculations indicate that for both cluster Dolidze 32 and Dolidze 36 the number of probable member is 286 and 780, respectively. We have estimated the cluster center for Dolidze 32 and Dolidze 36 are α = 18h41m4s.188 , δ = -04°04′57′′.144 , α = 20h02m29s.95 , δ = 42°05′49′′.2 , respectively. The limiting radius for both clusters Dolidze 32 and Dolidze 36 is about 0.94 ± 0.03 pc and 0.81 ± 0.03 pc, respectively. The Color Magnitude Diagram allows us to estimate the reddening E(B - V) = 1.41 ± 0.03 mag. for Dolidze 32 and E(B - V) = 0.19 ± 0.04 mag. for Dolidze 36 in such a way that the distance modulus (m - M) is 11.36 ± 0.02 and 10.10 ± 0.03 for both clusters, respectively. On the other hand, the luminosity and mass functions of these two open clusters, Dolidze 32 and Dolidze 36, have been estimated, showing that the estimated masses are 437 ± 21 M⨀ and 678 ± 26 M⨀, respectively, while the mass function slopes are -2.56 ± 0.62 and -2.01 ± 0.70 for Dolidze 32 and Dolidze 36, respectively. Finally, the dynamical state of these two clusters shows that only Dolidze 36 can be considered as a dynamically relaxed cluster.
