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.

Update – Vote on Registration of the colour Merle


On behalf of the Great Dane Club Committee I would like to thank all of our members who kindly took the time to vote and to give their thoughts and opinions, it is much appreciated.

I can now confirm that the members have voted by a large majority to support the registration of Merles under the heading Non Breed Standard Colour and the Breed Council has been duly informed.

The Great Dane Club Committee is very grateful of the support and feedback given to what is a very important decision for our breed.
 

Kind Regards

David Simpson
