Welcome to DanBar Ranch

Home of:
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 produce friendly, healthy pups and share them with people who will appreciate them as joyful companions. Home of "CAGE FREE DOGS!"

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.

I don't sell to "impulse buyers"; pups are sold by reservation and there can be a short wait for a great pup. 

No "Next Day Puppy" or Craig's List selling here!  I cater to folks who do their research, want a top end breeder who health tests and honestly represents their pups.  I can give you plenty of references.
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; your want a best friend. You don't want to support unethical "Craig's List" type backyard breeders, or "Next Day Puppy" type puppy mills, or buy a disease carrying 3rd world street dog from a "Retail Rescue".  

Please take a look through my site. I have tried to make it educational to help you make an informed decision.  Site is a work in progress, so not all links work yet. 
​I invite your inspection of my dogs, my ranch and my health testing results. I meet or exceed most legitimate breeder's standards.  Please demand breeder's prove their claims!

ATTENTION!    Due to the COVID 19 situation DanBar Ranch 
is obeying the "self quarantine" request of the WA state governor . 
At this time I am NOT taking reservations for any puppies for 2020.

Many veterinarians are shut down for normal business so health testing and cropping are not available. Nor can I socialize my pups.  As of March 22, 2020 there are no more cairn terriers available till spring 2021.  The one Doberman litter this year is pending more information on COVID.  Two Boston litters are still planned but won't be available until summer. 

Those with reservations in you can see your puppies HERE.
