ABOUT US – Our History
A specialist club for Great Danes was first formed in the United Kingdom in April 1883 – primarily due to the efforts of Mr Frank Adcock, Mr R Leigh Pemberton and the Rev Gambier Bolton. It was proposed to call it The Great Dane Club and under that name would be included all the various coloured specimens known as – Boar Hounds, Tiger Mastiffs and German Mastiffs.

Great Dane Care Charitable Trust – CORONAVIRUS STATEMENT
“Great Dane Care Charitable Trust would like to say that we are open as long as it is legally possible. Due to the present situation we cannot allow entry to the assessment centre without prior arrangement to protect our vital staff and volunteers. The same consideration is going to be given to our army of home checkers who will not be expected to put themselves or others at risk. Vet checks will be normally be taken up for people wanting to take on a Great Dane and then home checks organised after rehoming until the situation changes.
Donations are very welcome as many of the events normally attended this year for fundraising and breed rescue awareness, have been cancelled, so far this year, your continuing support is needed!! We hope the situation will soon come to an end and you will all keep safe.”
To contact a member of the committee please message us via our Facebook page The Great Dane Club UK.
