In 1970, Pat acquired her first Dane, a black bitch out of harlequin breeding. She was the inspiration for a lifetime commitment to the breed. Her name was, Maitau Von Rabenschwarz, CD, and from her, the Maitau kennel name evolved.

Helen grew up with Danes and after acquiring one from Pat, a friendship and partnership with Helen and her daughter, Tiffany began. We continue to breed and exhibit under the Maitau kennel name. We breed Great Danes in 2 colors, fawn and brindle.Temperment is extremely important to us and All of our dogs have health certifications.

Over the last Forty Eight years we have bred or owned 80 champions, in three colors, including several obedience titled dogs. We are members of the GDCA and the GDCNE. We are most proud of the accomplishments and successes we have attained at our National Specialties, a showcase for our magnificent breed. We are also proud of being Breeder of the Year in 1994 and an ROM Breeder with 10 dogs earning ROM (Register Of Merit) awards and 3 dog earning a HOF (Hall of Fame) awards.

Please enjoy our dogs, they are indeed Great, Great Danes!!!
