DeWitt's Court began in 1991, when I acquired my first Great Dane, DeWitt's Court Jester. Jester was a harlequin female, and a challenge, as the nature of this giant breed began to embed itself in my life and my heart. When Jester was a puppy, a friend invited me to her show handling class and I was forever bitten by the idea of raising, breeding and showing Great Danes. At a show one weekend I met a lady who would become my mentor in all things Great Dane, and to this day, I remember all she taught me, and the love of the breed she instilled in me. She also opened a new door for me into the colors of Blue and Black, and those colors to this day are as important a part of DeWitt's Court as are the harlequins and mantles I still breed. Being true to the teaching of my mentor and the "color code" of the GDCA, I do not cross color breed.
For the past 26 years I have had a love affair with this wonderful giant breed. I share my love for Danes with my mom, and with some long time friends and co-owners, and have experienced both the joys and sorrows of Great Danes, their wonderful and often humorous personality, their achievements in the conformation show ring as an owner/handler, the rewards of breeding and raising a beautiful litter of healthy puppies, and the many acquaintances and friendships that Great Danes have brought to my life.
I hope you will enjoy this new site and find in it all of the hopes and dreams I hold dear. Thank you for visiting DeWitt's Court Great Danes.
