Welcome to the website for Gaines Farm and Kennels!

Gaines Farm and Kennels is a small scale, working lines German Shepherd kennel and Christmas Tree farm located just northwest of Harrington, Delaware. 

The focus of our kennel operation is on producing quality working lines dogs that can be viewed as prospects for: K-9 Personal Protection, Law Enforcement/Security, Search and Rescue, Service and Therapy Dog venues, Family Companions, and used in the many K-9 sports. You won't find any white German Shepherds, cowhocked or sloped back dogs, long coats, American lines, or even show lines animals here. 

If you're not interested in German Shepherds, we're also a Delaware Department of Agricultural, licensed grower of seasonal Christmas Trees and trees for landscaping applications. Everything is grown on our farm. We don't cut trees from out of state and bring then in for resale, that would make us a retail outlet and not a tree farm! Gaines Christmas Tree Farm began growing trees since 1997.

We have many varieties and sizes to choose. Prices for fresh cut trees start at $25.00. Seasonal tree sales start on Black Friday and end on or before Christmas Eve. We offer tag now, fresh cut daily, and you dig. No artificial dyes or sprays are used. With hundreds of trees on our farm to choose, start your tradition with a tree from us this year!

 AKC-CGC, AKC Trick Dog Novice, AKC Therapy Dog Novice, NCTD Certified Therapy Dog, and Protection Dog.
We're pleased to announce that Bandit became certified as a Therapy Dog in December 2017. This makes the second working dog from our kennel to do this. It should also speak volumes about the clear thinking and multi-use applications for the dogs we use in our kennel. Unlike some "breeders," we work the dogs we sell and showcase their efforts in many different venues! 
Certified through the National Capital Therapy Dogs, Inc.
