I have a great dane puppy and he loves to run jump and dig. But if the fence is high it wont jump it.

My Danes love digging but not under a fence. Also if you have a high fence, like 6' they should be fine. And if you just let them have one spot where they can dig, they wont mess with any other spots, or you can get them a sandbox

Before I adopted my great dane (she was 8.5 months old...) She jumped the 6 foot fence at the shelter. They had to put her in a covered area for her outdoor "play time". Also liked to dig under the fence.

The best thing to do is to keep your great dane inside the house and when she wants to go outside to play or go potty you should go with her. And try to do a lot of exercise with her that way when she goes outside she wont have that much energy to jump the fence. Oh and maybe you should put concrete at the bottom of the fence so she cant be able to dig under it.

My female Great Dane loves to dig but not usually under the fence. My male Great Dane jumps our 7 foot fence regularly. If he can't jump it he climbs it. No matter the breed if they want out bad enough they find a way. This same male will actually open the windows in the house if he wants outside (he used to jump through them until he broke too many windows and we put in triple panes.) He is four years old and has not het realized that he is no longer a puppy. Likewise he still sits in my lap (I'm 5'4" so he really doesn't fit) like he used to do as a baby. It sounds like a lot of trouble but they are both so worth all the extra effort. He just wants to go visit everyone in the neighborhood. Good thing we live in the country.
