Welcome to Dark Dynasty K9's
DDK9's is a family-owned kennel, managed and run by Marlon and Lisa Grennan, known for breeding and training the finest American Pitbull Terriers. We proudly promote the well being and reputation of this working breed with each carefully raised puppy and well trained dog in our growing family. We are a member of the American Dog Breeders Association and the United Kennel Club.
We know the relationship a person chooses to have with his dog determines the dog's behavior. Marlon learned this first hand when he adopted an abused rescue dog, Damon and time and time again Damon proved what every dog needs and wants is firm consistent leader….the leader of the pack. Marlon and DDK9's exemplify this role.
Learning to be the leader of the pack, you will not only bring out the best in your dog, you will bring out the best in yourself. As you master this way of life, you will restore dignity and responsibility to the special relationship between dog and man.
"If we can change one mind a day, we have succeeded."
The fact that Marlon is the son of world famous Reggae innovator Winston Grennan lends some insight into where Marlon's strong leadership qualities and pursuit of excellence come from. Just as Marlon seeks to create the best quality in his breeding and training techniques, his father also sought beyond the pre-existing norm.
Winston did not just play Reggae. He is credited with creating the "One-Drop" beat which quickly propelled the little known music into the international mainstream.
Just like Winston, Marlon has a clear vision for what is yet to be accomplished in the world of breeding and training. Like his father he is driven by a love of what he does and a pursuit of excellence. He is proud to say not a day goes by that his dogs are not admired for the exceptional qualities they exhibit in everyday life.
We produce the best of all the finest bloodlines. The result is a well balanced calm family dog also capable of becoming a top of the line working dog. DDK9's dogs can be trained for any level of protection including for high level security or family and personal protection.
"Just as my father created his own style of music I intend to create a new direction with my dogs"
"The difference between DDK9's and other kennels is that here, there really are no kennels. All of my puppies are trained by me, in the pack, from birth. All of my dogs live together without fences, barriers or physical restrictions. It is the daily and lived structure of consistent and proper leadership that gives them the security and direction they need. This, coupled with my experienced understanding of dog psychology and confident leadership (understanding of myself) creates a healthy balance among the dogs. In a well- balanced family or pack, the best qualities in each are nurtured and every member can become their best. Much like people, when this "character" is be nurtured and cultivated in a dog, he will carry it with him in every situation and for life.
