"A little over two years ago, I had the pleasure of bringing Remington (Remi), a brindle Great Dane puppy bred by Kaitlyn Insell of Graceful Great Danes, into my home.
Kaitlyn was one of the most conscientious breeders I’ve ever met. I’ve had dogs all 50+ years of my life, coming from a home where my mom was a Standard Collie breeder, so I knew the value in working with a good breeder. When I first saw
the picture of the puppy, I reached out immediately. The quality of breeding was evident in the pup. But not so fast…Kaitlyn doesn’t let her pups go to just anyone. I was first interviewed on the phone with her, then filled out
her application paperwork, and when she was satisfied we were a good candidate family, she brought the puppy to our home to inspect it, our flooring, furnishings, other dogs and pets, and his outdoor environment – yard, shelter, fencing, etc. She
took time to view the puppy in his potential home interacting with us, our other dogs, and neighbors. Remi displayed remarkable calm, and demonstrated the early training he received in Kaitlyn’s home. He was exposed to children and a variety
of other animals. He was not nervous or shy, and had a happy engaging temperament. The situation seemed acceptable to all of us, and Kaitlyn allowed Remi join our household. Kaitlyn stays in touch with us regularly. She follows my posts
about Remi’s development, and she has even visited him in our home. Periodically she reaches out just to see how he is growing and maturing. Remi is a beautiful dog with no known health issues. Kaitlyn’s guidance in proper feeding,
time for neutering, and proper socialization have been invaluable. Kaitlyn breeds for correct conformation, but temperament as well. The relationship with her does not end with the sale, she really does stay engaged. I would highly recommend
her to anyone seeking a Great Dane companion."
