Overview
The Great Dane, better known as a gentle giant is very sweet, affectionate, and playful. Due to his size, he should always be supervised around children, but is generally well mannered. This breed is commonly used as a watch or guard dog and does very well.
Character
This is a very responsible and dependable breed, making him a great family pet. This breed should be extensively trained during puppyhood so they do not lean on people, especially children, or have any behavioral problems in the future.

Does your Great Dane bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
His sheer size makes this breed very intimidating, however this dog is very gentle and loving. They can do well around other dogs, but should be socialized to prevent them becoming dog aggressive. The Great Dane is a very playful and loyal breed.
Care
Combing and brushing the short coat of this breed regularly is acceptable for this giant breed. Rubber brushing also does well in removing any loose hair. Bathing a Great Dane can be difficult due to his size, but is a relatively clean dog.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Great Dane has a very short and thick coat, which should retain a glossy appearance. A relatively clean dog, this breed doesn't require much coat maintenance.
Training
The Great Dane requires a dominant handler and firm yet gentle training. Obedience training at an early age is best, as this breed can prove difficult to train fully-grown. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Great Dane puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Great Dane should have a large sized yard and plenty of exercise room. A very large breed, he requires very long walks regularly. This breed proves to be a good jogging companion and does well running alongside a bike. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Do Great Danes have to be supervised while around children? How do GD pups interact with young kids?

1 Comment

All interactions between a child under the age of 13 should be supervised with any dog, big or small. Children are unpredictable and same goes with dogs, even if the dog is raised with the child, situations happen in which the dog may feel threatened. Great Danes are one of the "gentle giants" and are normally really good with kids, big and small. When properly bred, raised, socialized and trained as puppies, they can live and interact with babies to toddlers to young kids and older.

Are there any breeders that sell Danes with fully cropped ears? In the future, I want a puppy with a crop but don't want to commit to taping and messing it up.

Finding a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder should be your first and foremost pick when finding a Great Dane breeder. An experienced breeder in ear cropping, such as one would be with having show-dog stock would be able to have the puppy's ears cropped and taped at the time of transfer. But most breeders would suggest getting an experienced vet to do the cropping and taping. As well as going into the vet on a regular basis to re-tape and check to make sure the ears are setting correctly.

How do I start housebreaking a Great Dane pup? Can an adult with bad habits be taught to be safe and dry in the house? Can they "hold it" all night?

First things first, the dog should never be left unsupervised. If the dog is not outside, he/she should be in a crate or attached to you by a leash. Put a timer on in the house that goes off every 2 hours. Take your puppy outside to use the bathroom every 2 hours. 15 minutes after he/she gets up from a nap, eats or drinks take your puppy out. Praise your puppy with affection and treats when he/she uses the bathroom outside. If you do find a mess in the house, do not scold the puppy. Calmly clean it up with an enzyme cleaner such as Nature's Miracle so that will get rid of the smell on the dog's level. With this method, you should be able to house train your pup within two weeks at the most. An adult can be trained with this method as well. A dog 6 months of age and older should be able to hold it all night.

How much exercise does a Great Dane have to have every day? I have a Labrador now and I will walk her for at least one hour a day and let her run loose for a half hour to 45 minutes.

The Great Dane would do fine with that amount of exercise. Thank you so much for making sure your Labrador is exercised properly! Too many people are not giving their Labs enough exercise and it is heartbreaking. But please remember that the Great Dane is a Giant Breed dog and so they are very susceptible to joint problems as an adult dog if they are over-exercised as a puppy. Do not force your Great Dane puppy to run and make sure that their walks are not constant, but broken up so the puppy has time to rest. Half an hour in the morning, half an hour at night and half an hour to forty five minutes of outdoor play in the middle of the day. I would recommend leaving your pup at home for the evening walk, and start with half an hour to forty five minutes at the beginning.

How many days does it take for a Great Dane to have puppies?

It takes 63 days from the time the dogs are bred to birth, but with multiple breedings you can go to day 65, if your bitch passes that time see a vet for evaluation.

Anonymous

Anywhere from 56 days-63 days usually depending on the size of litter.
