The Wonderful Nature of the Great Dane Breed

While 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...

Despite 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 people.

When 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.
