in loving memory of Dan and Barbara Jessup
A Small Hobby Kennel and Poultry Farm
"Where dogs are family!"
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.
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.
Producing old fashioned top quality dogs using modern scientific breeding/DNA health testing methods is my passion. I breed for myself, but love to share my kids with those who will love them as family.
I invite your inspection of my dogs, my ranch and my health testing results. I exceed most legitimate breeder's standards. Demand breeder's prove their claims! This site is designed to help you educate yourself on what questions to ask breeders.
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.

Does trying to buy a healthy, sound puppy make you feel like this?
I get it. You've done your research and want to support an ethical breeder who will supply you with a healthy, happy purebred of predictable type and temperament. You aren't looking for a show dog; you want a best friend. You don't want to support unethical "Craig's List" backyard breeders, or "Next Day Puppy" puppy mills, or buy a disease carrying Mexican street dog from a "Retail Rescue". Well I thank you. Ethical breeders cannot exist without ethical puppy buyers. Thanks for caring enough about dogs to support ethical breeders.
