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.
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.
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.
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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Great Dane puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

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.

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

First off never hit a dane, they are too sensitive. Redirect the behavior to a favorite toy, if crating him you can redirect to the crate for a rest period and provide toys so he doesn't view it as a punishment place, and simply talk to the pup and tell them it is unacceptable behavior and you will not tolerate it. Danes are very smart and learn quickly.

I need some training help for my Great Dane My mom won't let my Great Dane come in the house (she has an outdoor kennel) unless she is house trained and she chews on everything and ignores her toys to chew on something else. And I tried using training pads and she just chews them up. I really need help.

More frequent potty calls are in order, every hr till they get the hang of it, and no play time while on a potty call. Danes can take longer to housebreak and patience is important. As to the chewing, you need to redirect the activity, not hit the pup for doing it, danes are sensitive and will become even more destructive when reprimanded this way. Danes need to be around people and housing her away from the family is destructive when teaching them. Patience is a virtue with danes, they certainly will try it many times till they become adults. Outdoor housing for a dane is not advisable at all. Find an area that can be cleaned up and made safe for the pup and move it indoors, you will see quickly results when they are a family member.

Sizes of Great Danes vary depending on bloodlines and other Danes within it's lineage. American bred Great Danes tend to be taller, thinner sleeker looking European bred Great Danes tend to be shorter but with thicker bone, wider blockier heads and longer lips. As for colors the more common colors for Great Danes are Harlequin (White base coat with black spots/patches), Black, Blue, Fawn with black mask, Brindle (Fawn with black striping), Mantle (Black base coat with white collar, white on all four feet, white chest, white muzzle, and white tip on tail) and Merle (Gray base coat with black patches). There are many other colors out there that are not standard colors such as Fawnequin (white base coat with fawn patches), Brindlequin (white base coat with Brindle patches), Blue Harlequin ((white base coat with Blue patches), Blue Mantle, Merlequin ((white base coat with Merle patches), Fawn Mantle, Fawn Merle (Fawn Base coat with black patches), etc.

feeding the female great dane what kind of food should be given to puppy who is around 8 months old.

2 Comments

All dane pups and adults should be given a food of no more than 21-23% protein. My recommendation is Purina Dog Chow, as it keeps the weight at the proper levels as well as keeping the protein down. Too much protein will cause a young puppy or young adult (under the age of 2 1/2 yrs) to potentially get Panno, and extreme protein levels can cause HOD.

Stay away from cheap dog food like puppy chow!!! They need a good food like Iams giant breed or Form. Make sure it says Giant breed puppy food and they should be fed 3 times a day and rest for 45-1 hour after eating to avoid bloat witch will kill them in an hour without medical attention. so many of the dog foods out on the market are full of junk that is not good for them.The better you feed your pet the longer they live :)

I've seen a 9 month old puppy breed an adult female, however the sperm will not be at full potential and some will still be swimming upside down with decreased motility.

Is she spayed, or unaltered? Has she been in heat lately? Unaltered Great Danes, more often than most, go through false pregnanacies after their heat. She sounds to me as though she is in a false pregnancy, and fussing over her (toy) puppies. Do be sure she is actually eating and drinking in sufficient amounts each day, and not fussing too much. You may need to remove the toys she is treating as puppies, so her hormones can balance out. Don't let her see you take the toys, and don't hide them in any places she can find them; till this possible false pregnancy is over. If she IS spayed, then it might help to bring her in for a blood test to check her hormone levels, and thyroid levels. She may have some thyroid issues.

should my great dane have surgery for a inverted third eyelid? my vet at first thought it was cherry eye but while my 6 month old great dane was being neutered the vet checked the eye and decided it was an inverted third lid and didn't feel he needed surgery

If the dog is experiencing no sight problems, I would suggest leave it alone. They usually are not an issue and seen frequently in the European lines. If your Great Dane experiences frequent eye infections, then repair the problem. Remember with any surgery you run the risks of anesthesia complications.
