Great Dane Breed Information

Description: The Great Dane is regal in appearance, having dignity, strength and elegance. They are the tallest of dog breeds with their great size and well-formed muscled body. Known as the friendly giant, they should show no unprovoked aggression. There are times they may have a stubborn streak, but early training will help alleviate this problem. The Great Dane makes a great family dog with their gentle, loyal and affectionate nature and patience with children. Great Danes adapt well to urban living if given plenty of space and exercise. Despite their large size, they should not be kenneled, but rather kept indoors as a member of the family. Great Danes truly love the comforts of home and you may find them sleeping in your big easy chair.
