Great Dane Club

Supporting purebred Great Danes
The Great Dane Club of New England is a non-profit organization dedicated to the purebred Great Dane, including the responsible care, breeding and exhibiting of Danes registered with the American Kennel Club. We support the interests and welfare of this breed and our members who love them. Owning a Great Dane is a lifelong commitment, and we are dedicated to responsible care and breeding and to public education to help protect and advance this wonderful breed.

News & Updates
MEETINGS: Our next meeting will be held via Zoom on Monday, June 13. The board will meet at 7 p.m. and the general meeting will start at 7:30 p.m. Members will be sent further details as the date approaches.
SPECIALTIES & SUPPORTED SHOWS: At our June meeting, we will vote on judges for the 2024 GDCA National; see the May Dane Line Reimagined for more information. For last fall’s Great Dane Club of America National Specialty raffle, we donated a very special basket designed for anyone who’s expecting a litter of Dane pups. Babies can be placed in this fleece-lined laundry basket whenever they need to come out of the whelping box, and we stocked the basket with a thermometer, infant scale, umbilical clamps, petroleum jelly, washable pads, and many other items. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the basket; special appreciation to Marcia Roddy for a great idea and great execution!
Our 2022 GDCNE fall specialties will be held in November during the cluster shows at the Big E fairgrounds in West Springfield, Mass. Watch for more details. Congratulations to all the 2021 winners and a big thank you to our judges, chair Laurie Maulucci, and everyone who organized and staffed the shows. Complete results can be found at
