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 work to produce wonderful dogs and share them with people who will appreciate their great qualities as family 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.

This is a hobby - the numbers of pups and chicks available each year is very limited and sold by reservation.

"Quality not quantity" means limited pups each year. ALL pups are sold by reservation. I am accepting reservations on two cairn litters and a Doberman litter. CLICK HERE for info.

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 you to understand the following: WHY ARE PUPPIES SO EXPENSIVE?    WHAT BREEDING PRACTICES ARE GOOD?   *    BASIC PUPPY BUYING INFO

Please don't support "backyard breeders" and puppy mills by buying a dog off Craig's List or "Next Day Puppy" puppy mill sites. Or worse, support "retail rescue" by buying unsocialized and unhealthy street mutts shipped in from foreign countries.  CLICK HERE to learn how puppy mills in China are making $$$ by selling their dogs to Americans who then advertise them as so called "meat dogs".
