There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.

There is another site online that is masquerading as the Great Dane Club of Tucson but ours is the only one associated with the actual GDCT club.  Any other site displaying our name is there to profit from our name  illegally.

Our History

The Great Dane Club of Tucson was formed in March of 1968, to meet the needs of the average Dane owner in Southern Arizona. Realizing the lack of information available locally, we sought to form a club that was both interesting and informative to the pet owner as well as the breeder. Our aim was and remains to produce a better Dane, by informing our members on methods of breeding, exhibiting, nutrition and care of the Great Dane.

We became affiliated with the Great Dane Club of America in September of 1969. In 1970 we had our first sanctioned match and in January of 2000, We held our First Back to Back Specialty.

In the mid-seventies our club decided we needed a logo that took in our Southwestern Heritage and Carol Brooks came up with a design utilizing a Native American basket with a Dane head imposed within it, which is our present logo.


Our Mission

To promote the common interest in the breeding of better great danes.
