Here's what people have to say about us:

"We bought our last 2 Great Danes from Desert Danes. They are some fine people. They always have good dogs." - Jason Rider (Jacksonville, FL)

"I've been hunting hogs for over 50 years. When I need a great dane, I go to Desert Danes or his Daddy. Good quality dogs that I highly recommend." - Ronnie Creek ~ 'Texas Hog Boss' (Silver Creek, TX)

"We bought the runt; He's a positive addition to our family, Never happier!" - Mary Lasterous (Tucson, AZ)

"Funny story, my sister, was turned away by Desert Danes; I knew she shouldn't have had a Great Dane. She didn't have space, and she lived upstairs of an apartment building. Oh,  she was mad at Desert Danes. She drove 187 miles all the way, thinking she was coming home with a puppy.  Later that day, I called Desert Danes to tell them what a great judge of character they had displayed; my sister wasn't capable of caring for a dog. Three months later, I wanted that childhood dog my sister wanted n her life. I kept watching for Desert Danes to have a litter. Once I saw they had puppies, I called and put one on reserve. Déjàgo is the best dog I have ever had. His temperament is so gentle. I couldn't recommend a better breeder. I believe they care about who gets their puppies. I like that. Good for them."  -  Howard Clark. (Los Angeles, California)

"We received our Great Dane puppy three weeks ago. She arrived on time, healthy, alert, and active. We took the puppy to the Vet within 48 hours of arrival as required by Desert Danes, and she is 100% healthy. After reading some of the reviews online, I was very nervous, but my daughter was in love with this puppy, so I took the chance. Do the research and ask the right questions. The breeder was perfectly legit, only breeding Great Danes. I would suspect that some of the breeder's newspapers work with may not be reputable, which is a concern, so make sure you know who you are dealing with. I found the people at Desert Danes to be extremely honest, reliable, and very helpful. I received a call at every step along the way, informing me of the breeder's schedule, initial vet visit, a review of the vet report, and updates on all the travel arrangements. I would highly recommend Desert Danes to anyone looking for a puppy." - Nick Porter  (Santa Barbara, CA)

Our family met The owner of DesertDanes at a dog show. What a wonderful person, after talking to him and his wife, we ecided to be put on thier waiting list for a puppy. Then after talking to people at the show, we were very fortunate to get one of their puppies, they are very sought-after puppies. We met the Ropers from FL, they purchased a DesertDane dogs for the past 10 years, they seem to have a great reputation. After we got our "Billy" he was so calm around our children and even partly housebroken. I live in Noho, in lower Manhatten, everyone loves Billy, he has the greatest disposition anyone would ever want. DesertDanes are great people to get a future family member from. They are very diligent in their vetting process, I know they turn away a lot of people. My brother wasn't allowed to purchase a puppy from them, and I agreed in the end to the reason why. Thank you, we will return when Billy is to old and needs to get a replacement. - Liev Schreiber  

"I am so happy that I decided to have Roscoe become a part of our family. He has a good personality and temperament. We love him very much. Desert Danes were very helpful and took a lot of time to go over the different puppies. They were so friendly, and now we have a new member of the family, and he is so perfect." - Larry Fuller (Avondale, AZ)

 "I decided I wanted a dog after never even really liking dogs because I was always scared of them after being bit in the face by a German shepherd when I was a child. Little did I know how much this dog was going to mean to me. I ordered a Great Dane puppy from Desert Danes and in two days picked up the most beautiful, perfect puppy I'd ever seen. Having been suffering from depression ever since my ex-husband wrecked our family with his prescription drug addiction six years ago, I was moving two hours south and beginning law school. My ex launched an attack of lies against me in court, saying I was going to abduct my children, that I was isolating him, etc., and managed to get my two young sons taken from me after they had been with me 90% of the time. So it was just Jawa, my sweet puppy, and I who ended up moving. If she had not been in my life, I know I wouldn't have made it in law school, and I probably would have driven my car off a cliff because coming home to an empty house without my two sons, there is just too much to bear. This dog has saved my life. I bought a calendar of Great Danes, and I swear no one in there is as beautiful, as perfect as she is. She is perfect from whisker to tail. From the vet to the dog owners at the dog park, everyone who sees her says the same thing: "You got yourself a perfect dog there." Her tag says below her name: "She is my heart." And she is. Her disposition is amazing, her spirit, sweet and strong, and she is physically flawless. I named her after Sacajawea, the strong, smart American Indian woman who led Louis and Clark across the great divide and helped them become the first white men to reach the west of this country while carrying her one-year-old on her back. I can't thank Desert Danes who brought this dog into existence enough for creating the perfect dog possible to be with me as my best friend and my anchor to this world." - Elisa Plano (Medford, OR)

"I purchased two dogs from Desert Danes and have nothing but good things to say. The puppies arrived with everything! They seem genuine to care about the puppies. Both of them were potty trained already. Great guarantee too." - Mark Anothney (Flagstaff, AZ)

"I called Desert Danes 9 days ago, we had a beautiful Mantel Great Dane that we had recently had to put down that we had for 8.5 years, he was the love of my life, and I was TRULY a family member, needless to say, we were mortified that we lost him. I couldn’t even walk in the house because I would break down into tears; my baby was not there to greet me! I decided that we needed a new baby to join our family to help fill the void. No puppy could take the place of the one we lost, but I hoped that it would help. Since we had a Great Dane, we knew that we wanted another one. I got on the internet, and the first place the popped up was Desert Danes, and all it took was one look at Coco (our new puppy) to know that she would be the perfect fit. I called in and spoke with Kevin; he was fantastic, accommodating, and answered all my questions. He seemed very passionate about what he did, and being that I am in sales myself, that meant a lot to me. Honestly, I was so devastated over the loss of my dog that he probably could have sold me a stuffed animal, and I would have paid $1500 for it! Desert Danes took the time to send the pictures of Coco's parents and told me that we could have her by Saturday!

Coco came to us just two days ago, and we LOVE her already! I decided to look up the review (AFTER I purchased Coco). I have to be honest, I almost had a panic attack after reading some of the thoughts, and I was SOOOOOO scared that after her exam with our vet, we would be told she was not purebred or that she had a significant medical condition. I am happy to report that she was given an A++++ on her health exam this morning. I am in the medical field myself, and I know that complications/conditionals come up with any living, breathing creature out of most of our hands. I wanted to share my experience with everyone, especially after reading that some owners got puppies that ended up being unhealthy and passing away (my heart goes out to them). The reality is that you could have two completely healthy dogs that have a puppy with complications or conditions that are detrimental, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. I do not think this makes a breeder bad, UNLESS of course; there is a history of the dogs having puppies with complications.

Desert Danes told me that based on the time, they place anywhere from 30 to 50 puppies. With this number of puppies finding new homes, I know it would be IMPOSSIBLE to have EVERY single one of those 100% healthy. Puppies are animals. They cannot be bred to be invincible (although that would be what we all want). I am so happy with our decision to get Coco, and I WILL be referring dog lovers that want to add a member to their family to Desert Danes. THANK YOU to everyone at Desert Danes for helping us find our new baby girl!!!!!"

"Followed your advice a few years ago when I added a new pack member to my house. I walked her with my other two to build a sense of pack and introduced her to the house as you suggested. They all got to be friends and fast. I credit you with the smooth transition that happened in my house! And at least this pack leader knew which other pack leader to take cues from!" - Kimberly Herrick (Hackensack, NJ)
