About Divine Acres Great Danes

April 4th, 2017


Divine Acres is 40 acres of beautiful rolling hills located in central Wisconsin.  Our family includes my husband Dennis and myself (Carolyn), our four children Rachel 21, Kaitlin 20, Nicholas 19, and Nathan 17 and of course our Danes.

We are members of the Great Dane Club of America and the Great Dane Club of Milwaukee. We are proud to be a Breeder of Merit from the AKC.  We are active in the breed ring promoting the breed we love, always owner handled.

I bought my first Dane back in 1979, unfortunately lost her to bloat in 1981. We owned a couple different breeds of dogs in between but had to go back to the breed we loved the best. We bought our first show Dane in 1994 from Highland Acres, Bruce and Karen McCallum. Bruce handled Highlands Shelby Girl aka: Shelby to 8 AKC points. Trying to capture those elusive majors to finish her AKC Championship proved to be unattainable. We bred Shelby and thus started our breeding program. Shelby is in the lineage of every Dane we own. Though she is no longer with us, her legacy lives on.
