About Us


Tori and Victor puppies at 6 weeks photo courtesy of Winged Womyn productions. St. Louis, Mo.

Danemark Danes was established in 1967 by Bev and George Swinford. We met Bev in 1989 when we got our first two show danes from them. We bred under the kennel name of Diamond Danes for about 16 years until 2005. We have decided to use the name Danemark Great Danes as there are many out there with Diamond as part of their kennel name that we have been confused with. We have worked hard to get where we are and do not want to be confused with anyone else using the same name. We are located in St. Louis, Mo. Our names are Bernie and Karen Martin. We strive to produce the all around Dane. One that has the beauty and structure to win in conformation along with possessing the brains to do anything and everything else, obedience, tracking, and agility. Health and temperament is very important to us and we do health checks on all dogs before they are bred. We raise and train fawn and brindle great danes exclusively. We have worked hard to get where we are today!! We are devoted to the improvement of the health and welfare of our breed.

We have produced or owned 46 American Champions and 13 Canadian Champions, 28 International titles, 40 performance titles and 3 dogs to be Best In Specialty winners to date. Our foundation bitch is Am Can Int CH Danemark's Trace of Lace CDX TDX Can CD TD CGC ROM who is the dam of the 1997 National specialty BOB winner in Atlanta (BISS AM CAN INT CH Diamonds Canadion Style CD CGC). Lacey and her daughter AmCanInt Ch Diamond Danes Amazing Grace CD TD Can TD are the youngest AKC titled Great Danes in the history of our breed. They both earned their TD titles on their 6 month birthday. In adition, Lacey was also the first CH TDX great danes in the history of our breed also. At this time there are only 6 great danes with TDX titles.

We are very thankful to Bev Swinford of Danemark Great Danes for our wonderful start in this wonderful breed.
We are members of the Great Dane Club of America and the Great Dane Club of Greater St. Louis.
