The Great Dane’s large and imposing appearance belies its friendly nature. They are known for seeking physical affection with their owners, and the breed is often referred to as a “gentle giant.
Great Danes are generally well disposed toward other dogs, other non-canine pets, and familiar humans. The Great Dane is a very gentle and loving animal and with the proper care and training is great around children, especially when being raised with them. However, if not properly socialized a Great Dane may become fearful or aggressive towards new stimuli, such as strangers and new environments.
Great Danes are a breed recommended for families provided that they get trained early and onwards, regarded by animal experts due to their preference for sitting on and leaning against owners as ‘the world’s biggest “lapdog”!
When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.
BUYER BEWARE; Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Great Dane Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question ‘before’ you leave to visit the breeder, or before you enter into any transaction.
