List of Great Dane Breeders

Breeder's Showcase

This is a list of Great Dane Breeders and many have been involved in this breed for over 30 years. Some kennels are newer to the breed, but have made some solid contributions to the breed as well. I am not endorsing any one in particular, simply listing breeders with a good track record, but the responsibility is yours to investigate the breeders when looking for a puppy. All of these breeders will have companion puppies (pets) as well as show puppies within each litter. All pets will be sold on limited registration and spay/neuter contracts.

A couple of suggestions when looking for a puppy.

  • First, it is your responsibility to screen the breeder, just as the breeder will screen you as a potential home.
  • When in doubt don't.....if you are uncomfortable with the breeder then don't buy.
  • I DO NOT suggest getting involved in co-ownerships or breeding arrangements/contracts with breeders, this will only lead to potential legal problems down the road.

Good luck on your hunt for a Great Dane.

Great Dane Rescues

For those individuals who are interested in adopting a Great Dane, the only word of caution I have is, I do not recommend getting a rescue dog unless it is a very young puppy, if you have very young children or toddlers. Nor do I recommend a teenage or adult great dane/giant breed with a toy breed.(see info below).

If you can locate a rescue puppy is NO older than 10 weeks, not an alpha (dominant) animal, or not super submissive, fear biter in the making, and does not have a high prey drive - then puppy (8-10 weeks) that has been properly socialized, handled etc. could get used to the movement of a "toddling" child, then it would be ok to get a puppy from a rescue. Remember dogs don't necessarily recognize this movement as a human (leader of the pack) they see it as prey and especially if it squeals of if they fall on the puppy and hurt it !!

That is why no older puppies should go into homes with toddlers unless they were raised with toddlers. - this is not negotiable so don't write and asked me to justify that cute 6 month old you found at a shelter. No child's life is worth losing or getting scarred just because you want a large dog.

The first 10 weeks of socialization and training are critical to keeping a giant breed with tiny dogs and young children, so I personally would not want to take that chance and feel a puppy 10 week - 16 weeks is a better option.

Here are some good rescues to consider:

A Word Of Caution: Toy and Giant Breeds Together

I want to warn you about the problem of combining very small dogs and very large dogs in the same household. It is difficult at best to manage if you are a seasoned breeder and used to managing dog. I know of several situations over the years where a Dane has accidentally killed a tiny dog (Pomeranians, Yorkies, poodles) and they were absolute where the dogs were playing tug of war and the poodle accidentally got grabbed up in the process and was gone in the frenzy of dog play, before anyone knew what had happened. I lost a Pug to a Dane many years ago and they had been together for 10 years. I have a Pug now, but when it is time for them to go outside, the Pug and Sheltie go out together and the Danes go out another door to a different yard. I don't want the smaller dogs to get caught up in the frenzy of barking and playing in the yard and be killed by accident. So personally, I do not recommend a Giant breed with a toy breed, no matter how cute the combination may be...dogs are dogs and the squeak of a toy breed brings up primal urges and prey drives in our large guard dog breeds. I just don't recommend it.

DX Harlequin Great Danes

Pat & Bob Frank - Harlequin and Mantle
17630 East Rd., Hudson, Florida 34667

We have had Great Danes with us for the last 15 years. We first had Fawns and became serious when we brought home our imported Swedish Airways fawn male. We fell in love with the Harlequin color in 1994 and have stayed with that color. We began showing in
conformation in 1996 and begin owner handling each dog, then turning them over to a Professional Handler. Although we appreciate any worthy example of the breed, color or line, we are committed to the BMW look and line. Our objective is to recapture and/or preserve Laura Kiaulenas's BMW line from those golden years before her failing health. We have done OFA, Cardio, CERF, and Thyroid screenings on our dogs. We have also started Temperament Testing our dogs. University canine studies done on the issue and consequence of over vaccination have caused us to be very concerned and ultra conservative. When we place our puppies we provide a one-year genetic health guarantee with two years for their hips. We just whelped our "Zuni" sired litter and hope to have a special BMW bred litter in the late fall of 2002. Both of us belong to the Great Dane Club of America and the Great Dane Club of Mid-Florida where Bob has held several offices and is now the club President. He has taken several Judges Education courses and when he fulfills the AKC requirements he will apply for his Judges approval.

I guarantee in the case of a hereditary defect, which develops to the extent it renders the dog unsuitable as a pet within 2 years from the date of purchase. If this animal exhibits hereditary defects, which render it incapable of fulfilling its role of companion or obedience dog, it will be replaced. In this instance, a replacement dog of comparable value will be given as soon as one is available. We have bred several champions over the years. We have accomplished titles on our dogs for conformation championships.

The name Willowrun was derived from lovely graceful willow trees surrounding original kennel site 35 years ago. Not a new name, but unused for 20 years before I adopted it as my own. The original Willowrun Kennels had a fine reputation which I was warned not to ever sully--I've done my best not to, Willowrun has become synonymous with true to standard, typey, healthy specimens of the breed. Not affiliated with a club at this writing, have judged matches both in the States and abroad. Training is part and parcel of owning a giant breed, so give me high intelligence, stable temperament and soundness with efficiency of movement over a pretty face any day--But, ideally I want it all and all in one dog. First Dane was a pet shop harlequin--I could only go up from there! Goal as breeder was and still is to produce competitive consistently good blues consistently. Health checks when and as indicated. Guarantee against hereditary defects for first 2 years of dogs life--replacements only and I will take my kids back. Always there for my people and willing to work with a new comer to the breed. Featured accomplishments or brags ~ Youngest blue to ever finish in history of the breed; first blue to win BOS in GDCA Futurity, Willowrun's My Blue Heaven. Second to win Futurity also goes back to Willowrun as do so many of todays top black and blue pedigrees. Only Top 20 dog in USA to also go on to become Top dog in Europe, Int Rachel's Ravon Pal v Willowrun. I breed primarily pure color blues, occasionally pure color blacks combining American and European lines in the never ending search for that all illusive perfect specimen.

I strive to maintain sweet, gentle temperaments, beautiful faces/heads, giant size and a content, healthy family of Great Danes. The majority of my dogs are OFA Good with a total of four Excellent thus far. To date, I have not had cardio problems. All of my puppies are welcome home at any point in their lifetime for whatever reason. I guarantee (limited to refund of purchase price) against all debilitating health problems for the life of the dog. Currently am a member of the Great Dane Club of America, Great Dane Club of Northern California, Monterey Bay Great Dane Club and the Del Monte Kennel Club. In the past two years I have judged: the sweepstakes at the Great Dane Club of Las Vegas, a sanctioned match for the Great Dane Club of California, and the sweepstakes for the Old Dominion Kennel Club of Virginia. We sponsor obedience and conformation classes at our store and occasionally, I will step in to teach conformation. I have breeder/owner/handled three Great Danes to their championships and currently three more are nearing the finish. To date, I have owned/co-owned 8 champions. Bitches that I owned/co-owned have won the Great Dane Club of California Specialty three times (twice breeder/owner handled).

I have been a veterinarian and a Dane owner for 25 years. I started showing and breeding about 8 years ago. I breed blue and black Great Danes and my goal is to improve the conformation of these colors. I breed for structure and temperament as well as type. I am very big into performance sports and do obedience, rally and carting with my Danes.

All of my dogs have all their health checks- hips, elbows, cardiac echo, thyroid and eyes. I temperament test all of my breeders. I give a 2 year health guarantee on my puppies providing my guidelines are adhered to.

My puppies are raised in my kitchen and go to work with me so are very socialized by the time they leave my house. I do early neurological stimulation of my litters which aids their learning abilities. I have produced one American Champion and numerous International Champions. I have no BISS to boast about yet, but I will, and I have very sound Danes and wonderful temperaments to offer. I use the Blackwatch Feed Program for my puppies and recommend it for my puppy buyers.

SunStrike Great Danes - Fawn and Brindle

The SunStrike prefix came about after Jill Swedlow (formerly Sunnyside - 30 yrs in danes) and Joe and Pat McGoldrick (formerly Goldstrike) decided to pool efforts, our dogs and our expertise to breed under the SunStrike name. It's so much more fun to share our dogs than to just do our own thing! We strive for the best show quality possible but our primary emphasis is on health, longevity and temperament. We do not breed very often, only when we intend to keep a puppy or if we feel that we need to add to our line. Member of GDCA & GDCC. We do health checks and do guarantee my puppies as stated in my contract.

We are also very proud of our dogs that have ROM titles and are top Producers with very limited breeding. We have owned or bred over 30 American Champions and have had multiple Obedience titled dogs as well. We do not have a web site as yet, but hope to in the future.

Danemark Danes - Fawns and Brindle

Home of the first CH-TDX Great Dane
Breeder of 1997 National BOB winner
AmCanInt Ch Diamonds Canadion Style CD ROM


I have been involved in training and showing dogs since I was a teenager. But our dane involvement began when I met my husband Bernie. He already had a brindle boy named Tiger. After he lost Tiger he wanted to get another dane. He asked for my help in finding him a nice pet. Of course I had other plans and set out to find him his "pet" and have it also be one I could show. That's when we met Bev Swinford of Danemark Great Danes. She took us under her wing and we ended up with 2 from that litter. A male named AmInt Ch Danemark's Trace of Tiger CD CGC (Bernie's pet!!) and AmCanInt Ch Danemark's Trace of Lace CDX TDX Can CD TD CGC ROM. She ended up being our foundation bitch and everything we have today goes back to one or the other of these two littermates. Lacey [Karen Martin] and her daughter, Grace, are the youngest AKC titled dane in our[Karen Martin] breeds history by earning [Karen Martin] their [Karen Martin] TD’s on [Karen Martin] their 6 month [Karen Martin] birthdays. [Karen Martin] Lacey was also the first [Karen Martin] CH TDX Great Dane in the history of our breed. I told Bev from the beginning about all the things I wanted to do with Lacey. Of course I got the reaction that I did from almost all dane people at that time!! "You can't train a dane to do that!!". As you can see, I can train a dane to do all that!! I am also very heavily involved in training for agility now. I love being able to do other things with my dogs besides show in the conformation ring. It is my goal to be able to breed dogs that can excel in all the different aspects of dog ownership. We have bred a total of [Karen Martin] 30 American Champions, [Karen Martin] 13 Can Champions and [Karen Martin] 27 performance titles! We also have either owned or bred [Karen Martin] 4 dogs who have achieved a ROM from our parent club. That means they have produced a certain number of champion get. Our foundation bitch Lacey is the mother of the 1997 National specialty BOB winner, AmCanInt Ch Diamonds Canadion Style CD CGC ROM. We are very proud of all of our kids accomplishments.

Sunrise Great Danes - Fawns and Brindle

Melissa Dreyer
Budd lake, NJ 07828

Have been involved in dogs since I was 8 years old, started in our local 4-h club, doing basic obedience, learning about dog care and training. We also got involved in the seeing eye puppy raising project and successfully trained 3 guide dogs for them,as a teenageer, I was awarded nationally in dog care and training,and veterinary science through 4-H.
We began raising and showing Golden retrievers, in 1980 and have owned and bred several champions and a few obedience titled goldens, one a top 10 hall of fame group winner.
My parents had a dane, a brindle male from kitty koyler before I can even remember him being around, and in high school I worked at a horse farm that had two huge blue danes, I knew then I wanted one. Busy with the goldens, we continued and still have two of them 23 yrs later, but haven't shown or bred them in over 5 years, our hearts are with the danes now.
We have had danes only 10 years now, but have had much success,and luck I think, with our breeding program so far. We have bred and owned several champions, and have had the pleasure of having two Top 20 danes. We have been blessed with soundness,health
and longevity so far, and strive to maintain that in each future breedings we do. We stirve to produce friendly, outgoing,confident,sweet tempered dogs,and screen our breeding stock for health problems that arise in these areas, hips, eyes, heart, thyroid. Our pups are sold
with written contracts, containing information on their care, and the warranties we provide on our dogs for hereditary defects. Our dogs are members of our family, and are raised in our house. Our puppies are born in our family room, and are socialized from day one. We are proud of what we have accomplished and contributed so far, to this breed. I belong to several dog clubs, I am a member of the GSGRC, GRCA (goldens) and am a member and officer of the GDCRV for the last 8 years, and GDCA. Our hopes are to do enough good for this breed, and contribute positively to ensure it a healthy future, by breeding properly and educating the folks who not only buy our pups, but who we cross paths with as well. They say once you own a dane, you will always have one, I truly believe that, and can't imagine ever being without one in our lives.
