I went to Dan's Kennels in February of 2013. I was impressed and amazed with the cleanliness of the place! I saw that the puppies there were being very well taken care of.There were several breeds there, some of them new arrivals. I fell in love with a chocolate lab there! He was just so calm and had a special look about him that I couldn't resist! I bought him and brought him home. He has been just a joy ever since! He was easily potty trained and is not a barker, or whiner in any way! He loves people, other dogs and cats alike! When I take him to the vet, everyone just exclaims at how beautiful he is and that his coat is so shiny I have kept him on the same dog food that Dan had him on (high end) and have not had any problems with him at all! Vet said he is one beautiful lab and is in perfect health! I couldn't have asked for anything more. I would recommend Dan's Kennels to anyone!

My family and friend took a drive to North Collins to Dan's kennels not knowing what to expect. When we arrived we were very happy we made to short drive. We had been in the market for a puppy for quite sometime.I have had a hard time finding a breeder that was as clean and helpful as Dan's kennels. He took time and answered our questions and there was no pressure to buy.We have ran into several people since going to Dan's that are just as happy with their pets as we are.

Go take a ride to see what people are talking about. Dan's kennels is a place to go if you are looking for your new family pet. When going to Dan's kennel we found the place to be full of happy friendly puppies. All puppies seem to be kept in great conditions. After two visits there and doing our research my family bought our golden retriever puppy from Dan. Thank you for all the help and information you gave us.

With and open mind we went to Dan's kennel to look for a puppy . we heard mixed opinions. So with our own eyes we went there and started our hunt for a puppy . There was a great selection to choose from . All puppies were well care for and were happy and jumping around wanting a new home. we bought a designer dog that has been a great puppy. We will spread a good word about this place and send all friends Dans way!!

I purchased our mini-doxin at Dan's Kennels. I was more than pleased at the immaculate condition the Kennels are!. I was really impressed with that and also the courteous and professional way Dan, himself, handled the transaction.
For those who call his kennels a puppy-mill, should look-up the meaniing of the word. You MUST take a ride and view it for yourself. Some of these reviews were uncalled for and just plain
"stupid!"

I'm really confused by the reviews on here. We bought our King Charles Cavalier Spaniel in 2009. The place was so clean! Jennifer was not the most friendly person, but we overlooked it. He is healthy, loving, and the best addition to our family. Don't believe everything you read. Check it out yourself.

DO NOT BY A DOG FROM DANS KENNEL - DANS KENNEL = PUPPY MILL - - DANS KENNEL = PUPPY MILL
WOW.. it??s amazing that the government, the town, the county and the SPCA can let something like this go on??? How is Dan??s Kennel not shut down yet?? And i can??t believe Dan??s Kennel even wants people to come to their place??.. I would be soooo embarrassed to let people see the filth, the dog feces that looks like they have been piled up in the same place for years, the chained up dogs, the horrid kennels!!! Was I at Pet Cemetery or a dog breeder? and aren??t dogs supposed to eat dog food? There must have been 60 dogs and not one bag of dog food...Dan said they "ran out and that they'll(the starving dogs) will be okay. The other real gem in this situation is the other owner Jen .. OMG.. picture a female trucker with a couple teeth, a Marlboro red hanging out of her mouth and a Budweiser in her hand with a Ford hat on. She was using language that truckers in Tennessee would be ashamed of, this lady was a real beauty. Who greats people that are coming to spend money with by saying.." which one of these fuc*** you gonna want"...and ??hurry up its fuc**** cold out?? .. I just can??t believe the things that go on here.. and i just can??t believe they are still open ??? DO NOT BY A DOG FROM DANS KENNEL - DANS KENNEL = PUPPY MILL

Response from this business:

This is a classic animal right activist who probably doesnt want any dogs bred. no matter how well u do it !
.

I got a dog that was originally from Dan's Kennels. The owner chained this beautiful husky puppy up in her backyard until he was a year old. Dan's should have checked this person out better but I guess if one has the money, one gets a puppy.

Anyone who thinks they're "rescuing" a dog by buying them from Dan's is sadly mistaken. You're just encouraging and supporting puppy mills. If you really want a purebred, there are many purebred dogs in rescues.

SHE WENT ON TO TELL ME THAT THEY WERE AT RISK OF DISEASE TRANSFER RIGHT NOW? WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? I ASKED HER AND SHE WOULD NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION BUT ONLY STARTED TO YELL MORE "THIS IS NOT A PET SHOP WERE YOU CAN JUST COME IN AND SEE EVERYTHING AND TOUCH EVERYTHING"! I ALSO ASKED TO SEE PARENTS AND SHE INFORMED ME THAT THE 2 PUPS SHE BROUGHT OUT CAME FROM OHIO SO THE PARENTS WERE UNAVAILABLE? I THEN ASKED HER WHAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE THEN FROM THIS PLACE (DANS) AND A PET STORE? SHE THEN ASKED ME TO LEAVE, WELL SCREAMED AT ME AND BASICALLY THREW ME OFF THE PROPERTY CLAIMING I WAS ONLY THERE ON BEHALF OF DANS EX-WIFE? SERIOUSLY? I WAS ABSOLUTELY FLABBER GASTED WITH THIS NUT JOB ACCUSING ME OF BEING THERE TO START TROUBLE WITH HER OVER DANS EX-WIFE - SERIOUSLY LADY GET ABOVE IT AND GET OVER YOUR SELF YOU AIN'T NOTHING THAT SPECIAL TO LOOK AT ANYHOW!

I purchased my puggle from Dan's Kennels in 2008. The buildings are clean (sterile in the nursery) and the staff is friendly and helpful. My puggle was clean, happy and healthy on the day I picked him out (or should I say he picked me!) and he continues to thrive! I will definitely consider this business again if I am ever in the market for another puppy.

We recently purchased a wheaten terrier puppy at Dans Kennel two weeks ago. We were hesitant to go to Dans because of the poor reviews we read online. Dont believe everything you read on the Internet. The accusations and comments we read were totally unfounded once we visited and did not hesitate to buy our new puppy. I am glad we decided to drive the 1.5 hrs to find out for ourselves. We would have missed out on a great addition to our family. Both the owner and his wife were friendly and very helpful. They were not rude at all and answered all our questions. The kennel was clean and didnt smell of foul odors. The puppies were lively and well taken care of. Our puppy was house trained with little hassle within a week and our vet gave him an outstanding vote of health today. This was a vet of our choice outside the Buffalo area. I would not hesitate to recommend Dans when looking for a puppy. I suggest you see for yourself what they have to offer so you can make up your own mind. I will say it again, in my opinion, all online accusations are unfounded. Dont believe everything you read online. Very happy in Rochester NY with our new dog

We bought our goldendoodle puppy from dan's about 5 months ago. The experience we had was nothing like what I read online, and I was nervous after coming home (and putting a down payment) on the new addition to our home. But I didn't let it scare me, and I'm very glad I didn't because life without our pup wouldn't be the same! The front desk area was clean, and Jen (the owners wife) was VERY helpful and knowledgeable despite what I read online. She knew what she was talking about and never pressured me in any direction. She knew what we were looking for and helped us find the perfect pup! We get compliments on how handsome he is all the time, and if you can't afford the high prices for puppies that they charge other places, Dan's is the place to go. It was reasonable and they have beautiful puppies there. Not meaning to say that I haven't spent at least that in puppy vet bills and toys that somehow manage to make their way into my shopping cart but so many reviews on here are one sided and negative, our experience on the other hand was not

Dec.2007 bought a 9 week old Golden Retriever,who had Giardia (horrible parasite for animals AND humans who get it from sick pets.)At 1 1/2 years old was diagnosed w/ Hip Dysplasia.Our other Golden who was 15 1/2 when he passed,was diagnosed w/ Hip Dysplasia at 12 years old.We got him from a family breeder.No dog that young should have bad Hips unless they were bred wrong.Also had to have oral surgery that cost over $1,000.00 due to a defect from one of his parents. A REAL ANIMAL LOVER AND BREEDER WOULD NEVER BREED A DOG KNOWING THE DOG HAD A DEFORMITY!!!! DAN IS ALL ABOUT THE $$$$$$$$$ PLEASE DO NOT BUY A DOG FROM.HERE!!!!!!!!! ALSO HAS HUGE BEHAVIOR PROBLEMS. I FIND IT VERY HARD TO BELIEVE THAT THE "GOOD REVIEWS" ARE EVEN LEGITIMATE.

This place is the biggest puppy mill I have ever seen and the woman, "Jennifer" really needs to learn people skills and manors. The filth and smell is enough to make you run but then to deal with a snotty, rude, ignorant and mean b#tch is just uncalled for. I left without a puppy that was for sure. How disgusting and those poor animals. I felt so bad for not rescuing one of them but the puppies I seen were not cute, clean nor friendly and I was scared after reading all the reviews that they were right and these animals are sick and not cared for properly. As well as that woman being mean, rude and ignorant as well as jealous or something because she did the same thing to me as the other poster - staring at me and sizing me up as if she was jealous??? who knows but the place really needs to be cleaned and over hauled starting with getting rid of that bitch!

I first heard of Dan's Kennel from someone who got a puppy from them and happy with it.

After I do some research on the internet it almost stop me to get puppy from them because all the bad things people said about them.

However I decided to go check it out because i really want to get a morky and Steven's pet store isn't anything better than a puppy mill and they sell morky way too expensive.

Anyways, when I'm there I find the place very clear. My morky is a bit shy but he's so cute so I took it home anyways. It turn out to be I make a good decision. I just came back from the vet today and my puppy is compeletely healthy.

There is nothing wrong with Dan's Kennel and I think people need to go check it out themseleves.

We bought our dog from Dan's last year, and have had some serious issues with her. When we picked her up she had Kennel Cough and a GI infection. Of course we took her anyway, as we already fell in love with her. She has some major behavioal issues, and we have brought a trainer to our home, as well as the puppy class route. She cowers as if she were beaten, and often times just hides from us. We couldn't provide a more loving environment, and we view her as a Rescue Dog because we rescued her from that sh#$ hole.

I purchased two puppies (Yorkshire Terrier & Morky) from Dan's Kennels in N. Collins, NY, during the first week of Jan 09. I was very impressed with the facilities. These people live for this business & have sunk $$ into it to make sure it's not a puppy mill. It is clean, rather immaculate, organized & the owners were helpful & very friendly. They are particular about customers handling a variety of puppies as the puppies are at various stages of innocculations & diseases, infections could be spread. We were able to view every dog (including the puppy's parents), puppy, facility we asked to view. I would've been worried if they were not protective around handling all of the pets! Each puppy comes with a ton of information including it's vet certificate & shot records. We've had our two week check-up & have healthy dogs. I don't understand the reason behind the bad reviews, I guess you can't please everyone!

Pros: Immaculate facilities, variety of breeds, NOT a puppy mill! Healthy puppies for sale, helpful owners.

Cons: Due to the quantity & variety of dogs, some may view as a mill. The high standard of quality & cleanliness is what sets them apart.

FRIEND GOT A DOG HERE AND HAS SPENT OVER $700 IN VET BILLS BECAUSE OF DANS KENNELS IMPROPER CARE! PUPPY HAD INTESTINAL WORMS AND VIRUS NEEDED NUMEROUS TESTS AND TO TOP IT OFF PUPPY HAD A FRACTURED LEG. THEY SOLD THE DOG LIKE THIS! WE WENT ON OUR OWN TO PURCHASE A PUPPY AND FOUND THE KENNELS TO BE OVERFILLED, DISGUSTING, SMELLY, AND NOT CARED FOR PROPERLY. 2 PEOPLE RUNNING THIS PLACE WITH OVER 300 ANIMALS?!?!?!?!?

FRIEND GOT A DOG HERE AND HAS SPENT OVER $700 IN VET BILLS BECAUSE OF DANS KENNELS IMPROPER CARE! PUPPY HAD INTESTINAL WORMS AND VIRUS NEEDED NUMEROUS TESTS AND TO TOP IT OFF PUPPY HAD A FRACTURED LEG. THEY SOLD THE DOG LIKE THIS! WE WENT ON OUR OWN TO PURCHASE A PUPPY AND FOUND THE KENNELS TO BE OVERFILLED, DISGUSTING, SMELLY, AND NOT CARED FOR PROPERLY. 2 PEOPLE RUNNING THIS PLACE WITH OVER 300 ANIMALS?!?!?!?!? DO YOUR HOMEWORK, IF YOU LOVE YOUR PET THEN GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO BUY A NEW ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STAY AWAY FAR AWAY.

Cons: PUPPY MILL

I went here in search for a play mate for my Lab - However I should have done some research first because I was MORTIFIED by the HORRIFIC conditions I seen at Dans Kennels! The people there especially the woman were very rude, down right MEAN and VULGAR! She did not want to help me but was to worried about looking me up and downevery time I tried to talk to the man there - jealous much?? I felt like I was back in high school with the looks and comments she definitely has some issues!! Then they would not let me see more than 2 different types of puppies they claimed they were afraid of infection. What infection? The PARVO infection I have heard of them having SEVERAL times at this place from 3 different vets in the buffalo & Hamburg areas.
People please contact your local VETS and ask about Dans Kennels Puppies and they will fill you in on all the sicknesses and disease that usually come with a Dans Kennel puppy. Ear mites, Giardia, tapeworms, coccidia, hip dysplasia, kennel cough, upper respitory infections and many other long term and mostly fatal diseases and conditions all related to puppy mill breading. Like dirty conditions, bad water, no vaccinations, not taking care of the breeding parents properly, poor heating, poor quality off food and poor quality of life for these poor puppy mill dogs. The humane society posts the following...

Potential buyers of puppies should be allowed to visit the premises to see where and how the puppies are raised. If the parent dogs are on the premises, buyers should be allowed to see them.

Well when you go to Dans Kennels you are NOT allowed to tour anything, you are kept in the front office area of their business as they run it as a glorified PUPPY MILL

There is no care of love only for the love of money at this place and hopefully someday Dans kennels will be stopped and the torture of those poor poor animals will come to an end!!
PLEASE DO NOT SUPPORT PUPPY MILLS - THINK BEFORE YOU LEAP!

Pros: there are no pros for a PUPPY MILL

Cons: this PUPPY MILL is still in business

I purchased my puppy from Dan's 6 years ago, and since then have learned so much about this place. My puppy came with ear mites and an eye infection. He has behavioral problems and came with sensitivity towards people because he was never handled. I have had trouble breaking him of these habits even though I have trained tons of dogs. This place is NOT "clean" as others have said. Read the reviews... there is a reason these people are yelling at customers not to touch the dogs.

My dog has since then had several knee and hip injuries and problems that my vet says are the result of overbreeding, when a dog is forced to have too many litters. Just going to Dan's they have way too many dogs to care for them all well. I hope the SPCA shuts these people down.

I beg you don't spend your money on cruelty. Do a little research on the breed you want, and you'll find a breeder in the area who breeds one litter at a time. This is the way to go if you want a happy healthy puppy.

Shut down this place!

3 Years ago we went to the kennel and it was very clean. I know others that have bought dogs from dans and said the same thing. I do think this is a kennel that breeds different breeds. My Yellow lab is a American lab and is very lovable and was healthy when we go her. I didnt know that she was American when I bought her and she had dudley pigment and couldnt show. I called them and explained this and they offered to take money off of her or exchange for a different dog. I said no Im not showing her and my husband and I thought about it and since they offered to refund money because we couldnt show her we deceided not to accept because she was a pet not for show. I would highly reccomed this place

I heard allot of pros and cons about Dans,I chose to go there because I had two family members get their puppies from Dans.I purchased a Bischon/Yorkie mix puppy at the end of June.He is very healthy and an awesome dog.His temperament is incredible,even when my youngest nephew mauls him.I would recommend that you go check it out for yourself and not let let others sway your decision.

We first started with a phone call to Dan's to inquire on a puppy. They would have a litter available for "view". I called and scheduled a day to pick out a puppy. I was under the impression I was going there to pick our puppy out, and then pick it up to take home two weeks later. I was quoted a price of $600.

When we got there to "pick our puppy out", they said, "if you want it, you have to take it today". We were not prepared for this. We were taking a family vacation the following week and had planned on picking her up when we returned (like our telephone conversation). She would not hold the puppy for us. We had no choice, we took her.....when she was writing up the paperwork, I thought the number was up side down. The price had gone up to $900! There were a couple of puppies out of the litter that were sick. She explained to us that this was normal from eating their own feces?

We took our baby home and have a healthy happy member in our family. We had heard surprised comments at how healthy a dog we received from Dan's Kennels.
I do believe this is a puppy farm. There were at least six different breeds of litters available on that given saturday when we were there.

I would not trade our baby for anything and am glad that we were able to give her a good home.

Pros: the only pro....we ended up with a wonderful pet

Cons: very sad conditions, poor communication, very mis-leading

We went to Dan's After getting the runaround at the local SPCA. The ywere great! They answered all of our questions, and we were able to meet Dan himself. He was cleaning the cages, petting the puppy's and feeding them. No cage was too full. All the puppies looked healthy & happy. We purchased a mini Schnauzer, and he is 6 months now, and 100% healthy, happy, and lively. We just got Elvis neutered on Friday, and he is healing well. Dan's Kennels are great and we plan on going back!!!!

My wife and I went to Dan's Kennels to look at puppies for our family. We did a lot of research into the breed of puppy that we wanted. People told us not to go to Dan's Kennels because it is small and messy and you can not see all the puppies. I asked if they ever been to Dan's and they said no but that is what they heard. I can safely say that this is not true about Dan's. My wife and I were allowed to see different breeds of puppies and we were able to pick out the puppy of our choice. The puppy kennels were neat and clean. All the puppies seemed to be very healthy and well cared for. A lady named Jennifer was able to answer all our questions and was very helpful. My wife and I had lots of questions. After two seperate visits to Dan's we went home with a Shih Tzu Maltese mix and we love her. Her name is now Sookie. She loves our home and children. THANKS Dan's Kennel and Jennifer!!!!!

I had an opportunity to see a pup that came from here at my vets.
The dog was very sick and had some strange bacterial infection. It was also throwing up white frothy emesis.

Look for a reputable breeder

The place seemed clean, but the worker's answers were evasive and they would not show the actual puppy kennel area. It seemed like a mom and pop shop. They have recently changed their health garuntee for their pups from one year to two weeks.(the state minimum) No answer as to why...just a business decision. What's up with that. Puppies seemed kind of hyper....

Message from Dan's Kennel

Buying a puppy is a serious commitment .. We do urge impulse purchases! A dog is a friend for life.. Breeding dogs can be controversial and have a negative side ..Due to places not giving proper care to their dogs..We strive to give the dogs the best we can and keep them in the best environment ! As I tell people someone has to breed dogs or there wont be any !! If you are looking for a family pet please come check us out @ Dans kennel..
