Since I was a little girl the Great Dane has been my dream breed. In 1997 that dream came true and I purchased my first Dane Nakita. In 1998 I met Alison Jones DVM of Karador Perm Reg'd Great Danes in Ontario and in 1999 I brought home my first show Dane and the foundation of our Kennel, Graci, Ch. Karador's Style And Grace.

Graci was owner-handled and finished her championship in the summer of 2000. Alison has become a dear friend and an excellent Mentor and is quite involved in our breeding program. I have learned so much from her and continue to learn and couldn't ask for a better Mentor. Thank you Alison from the bottom of my heart for giving me the opportunity to own such a beautiful girl our pride and joy "Graci".
All of our Danes are raised in our home and not in outdoor kennels. They are a very important part of our lives. Before we breed any of our Danes we OVC hips and elbows, we test heart, thyroid, eyes and VWD. We do show our Danes in conformation and also plan to do obedience and therapy work with them as well. We breed for temperment, health, soundness longevity and conformation. All our puppies are CKC registered and come with a written health guarantee and a strict contract.
We offer support and after care to all of our new puppy owners. We do on occasion have puppies or young adults available to approved loving homes only. Once you have been approved to own one of our fur babies you become a part of our family. To become a member of the Tavernier Great Dane family we do recommend reservations and always welcome visits to our home to see our girls.
We are very selective in our breeding program and we strive to improve with each generation. If you and your family are considering a Great Dane feel free to give us a call and we would be happy to talk to you about the breed.
