"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.

NOTICE: DanBar Ranch and Kennel will be closed to the public until January 1, 2021.
We are taking some time off to meet writing commitments and work on a state law to protect rescue dogs from the horrors they experience in unregulated interstate transit and so called "no kill" facilities where they rot for months and even years.  To see how I recently was able to get just such a situation here in Goldendale shut down CLICK HERE.

Emails and phone calls will be returned when possible, but expect a delay.
Those who have deposits down at this time will be contacted ASAP.

At this time we have no puppies available.   
Those interested in stud service please mark your emails as such.

We wish all a wonderful Holiday Season!
I'd like covid to be over, wouldn't you!?

We are excited about the spring! When we reopen we will be taking reservations on our exciting
European Doberman litters and our wonderful cairn terrier litters. 

CONGRATS to Doberman "Lord" for his latest OFA results: Hips - EXCELLENT  elbows Normal 
and "Twizzle" Hips - Good, elbows Normal! Now CHIC.

I breed old fashioned, smart as hell, stubborn, vermin hunting Cairn terriers. Special emphasis on TRUE hard coat - not a long, silky coat that needs to be plucked out to look like a cairn. Fantastic temperament. Love kids.
