Thank you for your
Wonderful Nature of the Great Dane Breed
you can find plenty of web pages out there that will tell you all about
the beauty of the Great Dane, the correct conformation of the Great Dane,
and even the history of the Great Dane as a German Boarhound, there are
few pages that will tell you all about the nature of the Great Dane. This
page is all about that nature.
First and foremost, the Great Dane is a Dog; a large dog that when cared
for and bred properly is a wonderful dog, that makes a great pet for
almost any family. Good breeding is very important for all dogs.
Here, we explore the Great Dane as a well bred dog.
The following are a few descriptive words and phrases about the Great
Dane: Friendly, graceful, sensitive, docile, expressive...
their formidable size, the Great Dane is a friendly creature - a lover, a
leaner, a dog that loves human company. By nature, they are not aggressive
or mean. They do not fare very well when kept outside in a yard. A
Great Dane, however, enjoys the company of the 'pack' as does any breed,
decides quickly who the leader of the pack is (the owner if your dog is
trained well) and enjoys pleasing that leader and the rest of the pack.
In the house, with family, they are at their best, enjoying the close
proximity of family members. They love being petted, leaning next to you
while you curl up with a good book, and simply hanging around their
a person takes one look at the grand size of the average adult male, it is
easy to jump to the conclusion that a dog that size must be clumsy, and
would be destructive inside a house or an apartment. On the contrary, a
trained Dane loves their house. They love soft cushions (keeping your Dane
off the couch or bed can be a chore), and the comforts of a good home.
As a puppy, they require
consistent training methods. They respond very well to a clear command
once trained. Like all breeds of dogs, they almost always go through a
chewing stage, and as puppies can be clumsy, tearing around the house.
Even then, they can be trained to respect the house very easily, and with
plenty of chew toys and consistent training, chewing will not become a
problem if taught correctly.
When considering a Dog for a pet, the Great Dane can be a wonderful
addition to your family.
They want and need to be part of
the family; they can be impressive lovely dogs, capable of many activities
as a true working dog should be.
