|We could write pages and pages to tell about the Great Dane, but we will try to be brief and just give you a general idea. Every Dog is different. First and foremost the Great Dane is a canine, but like every breed the Dane has certain characteristics that have been purposely bred in and refined for generations. They offer so much in their short lives: companionship, joy, loyalty and fulfillment. Great Danes are a beautiful and magnificent breed. They also require a lot of time, energy and money to be raised properly and successfully.
||The Great Dane loves home and family above all, with a stable temperament and a sweet attitude. He is big and strong, but he is very sensitive and needs to be by your side. The Dane wants to please you and he will if you are gentle and consistent in your handling of him. The Dane is very affectionate with the family (most Danes are dependable and devoted to children). He is good with the people he knows but may be aloof with strangers until he knows them better. The Dane is courageous and protective and does fine with other animals.
|The Dane is very much a "house pet". They do not like to be left outside for long periods of time. They thrive in a close loving family, and if you raise him with love and care, train him with patience, and socialize him well you will be proud to have him as a part of your family.
Please remember that the ownership of any dog involves responsibility and commitment. There are a few things to ask yourself before purchasing any dog.
Can you afford the dog?
Not just the purchase price of the dog, but the many years of expenses that come with any dog i.e., food, routine vet visits, emergencies that always seem to happen at the worst possible time.
Do you have time and energy that a puppy or even an adult needs to have for just them?
If you are already "stressed out" by your daily schedule, how are you going to care for your "four-footed" friend?
Are you and your entire family committed to bringing a puppy or adult into your family? Never forgetting that the puppy (or adult) was invited there by you, and that you are responsible for seeing that he is taken care of properly.
IF YOU CANNOT HONESTLY ANSWER YES TO ALL QUESTIONS THEN PLEASE RECONSIDER THE PURCHASE OF ANY DOG.
PLEASE RESEARCH THE BREED BEFORE YOU BUY!!
Every breed has specific health and development needs. Your breeder should be there for you every step of the way.
