Welcome to High Desert Danes

My Experience with Great Danes

I have owned Great Danes for 40¬† years. No other breed has captured my heart like they have. I am a hobby breeder of performance dogs. I compete in Rally and obedience and also prove my dogs for fitness by hunting jack rabbits. Great Danes are a pleasure to train, and I have found they are are quick to learn and eager to please. As wonderful as these dogs are , they are not for everyone. If you have very small children, I recommend you wait. You also need to be in a position to supervise your children at all times when around the puppy, so that they don’t tease them. Children also run and trip and could fall on the puppy causing great injury.

Great Dane Puppies for Sale

Puppies are available occasionally from health tested parents. They are raised in my home in Southwestern Utah with dogs (large and small) and cats. I have now implemented the Puppy Culture protocol as well. You can read about it here Puppy Culture.com.They have 3 fenced acres to run and play on in order to develop properly. They are raised in my home, not an outdoor kennel. They receive a great deal of socialization this way. I go to great lengths to make sure you have a healthy, mentally happy puppy. It is up to you, the puppy owner, to be sure he stays that way through proper socialization and training.

How can they be purchased?

If you wish to purchase one of my Great Dane puppies for sale, I prefer that you pick them up at my home. Ground shipping is available. The new owner is responsible for all costs associated with shipping. You must fill out a puppy questionnaire so that I may determine if I have a puppy that would be right for you. I will do all I can to ensure you get a puppy that is the right sex/and or color but I make no guarantees. The most important thing is the puppy be right for you and your family.

What if I have never owned a Great Dane?

Great Danes are really no more work than any other breed. They are awesome dogs, but do need a proper diet, exercise and a loving INDOOR home. Early training and socialization is imperative to be sure your puppy is a well behaved and social dog. Be advised, they do shed, dig holes and will be BIG dogs when fully grown! If you have never owned a giant breed dog before, I will go over some things you need to know to make an informed decision about whether this is the right breed for you.

If you would like more information, please use the contact page and I will be in touch.
