A Small, Serious Hobby Kennel in Goldendale, Washington
We invite your inspection of ranch, dogs and breeding practices.


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. 

I am not a commercial kennel. My hobby is to improve my chosen dog breeds by concentrating on health, temperament and original type - not winning ribbons at dog shows. Dog shows encourage exaggeration and that harms the breeds. Obviously I can't keep all the pups born, so I welcome those who appreciate the benefits of a serious breeding program to share these wonderful dogs with me.  I keep my prices reasonable to encourage you to buy a well-bred dog.

Welcome to two new European Doberman imports: 

I am ​very proud of the expense and thought I put into the selection of the dogs for my breeding program.  There are plenty of beautiful European Dobermans here in the USA, but none with the genetic health and working character I require. Sadly, the USA is flooded with dogs from European "puppy factory show kennels" whose dogs are notorious for DCM - though advertised as "DCM clear". I avoid "Pride of Russia", "Betelges" and "Alto Bello" in my pedigrees.  So, if you are the kind of Doberman fancier who has done their research and won't settle for anything but the absolute best, healthiest dog for your money, check out my European Imports.
First and foremost, my dogs are my family... and I have built them their own private "dog park" on 20 fenced acres.  NO CRATING HERE!
