Dane is a 1 year old black male Great Dane. He is very sweet but in that “I am a teenager” kind of way so he needs training. No kids for Dane and cats unknown but he is great with other dogs, is crate trained and very good with women and warms up to men. He is absolutely a puppy so again we are following the 4 rules here with him; see below:
1. No kids, that includes “grandkids; no kids under 16 yrs old ( even where the kid is 4 but “is very experienced with large breed dogs.” No no no no kids.
2. He needs training, not training in your kitchen to make him sit and stay; he knows that already. You need to be willing to work with a professional trainer so that if he doesn’t want to do something that day you will know how to get him to do it.
3. He warms up to men. This means no party to welcome the dog to your house, no boys fraternities, no family with 8 boys in it. Take time with him he is very big and needs to be broken in with men.
4. He is on the big side. I get a lot of ” I want the biggest one.” No you don’t. If you can not handle a medium Dane then you can not handle a large Dane. This means walking them and controlling them if they want to walk over to that cute little poodle and eat them. This means that you need to be able to demonstrate that you can handle a 140 pound dog.
If you can fill all the requirements then Dane is your guy. He is a very handsome, growing bouncing baby boy that loves to snuggle, bark, eat, and pooh so congratulations, it’s a boy.
