May 16:  PUPPIES have arrived!!

May 21;   Arthur had a great weekend at the NW cluster.  Four all breed shows and two specialties.  In the first specialty he earned BOB in the sweeps and Best Puppy in specialty.  At the second specialty he won BOS in sweeps and Best Puppy in specialty.  He hit his stride with a WD at one of all breed shows.  

May 14:  Once again a bit behind in updates, but Arthur won his first ribbon in winners -  RWD on May 5 2024

April 22, 2024:  We have been lazy about updates.   Arthur has stopped up and won a best beginner puppy and  a BP Gr 3 in January.  He followed that with a Best Puppy in Specialty out of the puppy bred by class at just 6 months old.

March 22,2024:   Our next litter is planned to be s repeat of the breeding that produced Arthur, but with a new protocol that should help get more puppies to term with frozen semen.   Check out the puppy page for more info as the breeding progresses.

December 27, 2023:  Two more liters are planned and Misty did whelp a puppy  -  Arthur.   He will start selected showing in March 2024.

September 19, 2023.  Our wonderful retired Broadway has passed away after an unsuccessful attempt to control a liver infection.  The planned breeding between him and Rhona will continue using stored semen.  It was a great loss to our family.  He was not only an exceptional show dog, but more important he was an outstanding companion dog and nanny to Jessica’s daughter (Amelia) from her day of birth to now - 17 months of joy between dog and child.  More information can be found on Jessica’s facebook page

Our Brindle GCHB Timon has been retired from conformation and is getting back into Rally.  He just started this shift in emphasis in April 2023 and still managed to end up as Number 18 in the Great Dane Club of America rally stats for 2023.  That means he is in the invitational list for the 2023 national specality.  Sadly, due to expected puppies, we are not planning on attending the national this year.

After 40 years in Great Danes, we began anew in 2006 with the acquisition and finishing of Ch. Rojon's Captain J followed by GCh. Rojon's Jasmine, and Ch. Rojon's Augustus.  

We began our life in Danes with Ch. Lincoln's Jager Von Zarik (Jake), who went on to be a BIS and BISS winner.  But from the start, Danes were part of our family - and that has continued to today.  The next pivotal event was the addition of Rojon’s-Winhurst Captain J to our family. Without Captain we would not have reset and begun Teulu’s Great Danes.

As for the larger word of dog showing and breeding, all three of us (Tom, Barbara, Jessca) are members and officers of the Gig Harbor Kennel Club.  All three of us are also members of the Great Dane Club of America and Candian Kennel Club and recoginzed as AKC breeders of merit.  Jessica is taking the family involement furhter in the AKC and has her AKC judging licenses for all breed Junior Handling and Great Danes with plans to add mroe breeds to her approved list in the near future. She also has been judging obiedience and junior handling for the 4H for more than 15 years.

Teulu is the Welsh word for family - and we have chosen it to reflect both our Welsh heritage and the commitment of our entire family to this breed. Our Logo ( on the left side of this page) depicts Jake and reflects the beginnings of our life with Great Danes.

Jasmine whelped her first litter in September 2010 and began our new line - Teulu's Great Danes. Jasmine is shown above (on the right) with two of those first litter puppies (Bred by exhibitor G Ch Teulu’s Pride of kovu on the left, and G Ch. Teulu’s Nala of the Wild center). Check out the pages on this site for other puppies from Jasmine and her daughter Nala. We are most pleased that Jasmine has 4 champions of record to date and more close to finishing.

We fully support the AKC code of Sportsmanship in addition to the expectations of being an AKC Breeder of Merit.
