Good Temperament, Good Health 
And Old Fashioned Integrity

I've retired from 20 years as an animal control officer. My entire life has been dedicated to dogs, and you can read about my dog training and life as an author and international speaker on dogs HERE. 

It is my joy to work to produce wonderful, healthy dogs and share them with people who will appreciate their great qualities as companions.  Home of "cage free dogs"!

HOW TO RESERVE A PUP
DanBar Ranch is a tribute to my beloved parents, Daniel and Barbara Jessup, long-time residents of West Seattle, WA. Dad was a captain for United Air Lines and mom worked tirelessly to give us kids a clean, safe, intelligent and loving home. Because of them, I was able to retire to the country and "live the dream" which is DanBar Ranch. Thanks, mom and dad, for instilling in me my love and respect for all animals, my ethics and my common sense - the best gifts parents can give their kids.  They were pure class. I hope where ever they are they can see into my heart and know how much I love them. 

Daniel Jessup and Barbara Clark Jessup when they were first dating. After her death my father added the note at bottom right which reads: Oct 1948 we met. Oct 2013 Barbie went on ahead. He passed exactly one year later.

NEWSFLASH:

Hi Folks! Just a few days till  my spine surgery and am I excited! I have not been able to walk more than a few feet at a time, and that in great pain, and the docs say they will patch me just fine.  PLEASE understand that from now until about 12.1.19 I will not be on my laptop much. If you have written me and not gotten a response, PLEASE email me again and I WILL get back to you - but it may be a while.  EMAIL: Dreadlives@outlook.com Thank you for your patience!

I do not have any pups scheduled until next spring.

​IMPORTANT NOTE:
To avoid disappointment in 2020 email me today!

Am I the breeder you are looking for?
I do FULL OFA/DNA health testing; I invite your inspection of my premises; I offer lifetime support/take back service; this is my passion - not my means of support. All animals honestly represented.​ No pressure; I want the right dog in the right home. "Cage/crate free" fully fenced 20 acres for happy, healthy dogs! Yes, its insane here, but its a good kind of insane! LOL!

Does trying to buy a healthy, sound puppy make you feel like this?

This site is designed to help you educate yourself on how to avoid common deceptions used by puppy mills and backyard breeders who are out for a buck. Why? Because anyone who loves dogs wants to support those who do right by them. So whether you buy a pup from me or not I want to help educate you while you search for your new best friend.
