The answer is definitely yes, if you would like to have a loyal companion that is very affectionate and playful. They are excellent watchdogs and can be trained easily – but on the other hand be careful not to leave them alone for a long time since they may suffer from separation anxiety especially, when young. Great Danes get on well with other dogs and pets and also love children, although you had better not leave them alone with smaller children, because they might accidentally knock children over and injure them.
This breed’s coat length is short and thick, therefore can live in warmer environments; however they can’t stand very cold weather. Great Danes’ intermittent shedding will cause no problems if you take care of the dog’s hair at least once a week. Sadly, they are very prone to some serious health issues, so can get expensive financially. They drool rarely. Great Danes are 100-120 lbs in weight and their height is around 30 inches. They can be trained at adult age as well if the handler is dominant and very gentle, but the best is if you train them at an early age. Be careful, never force them to do more exercise they are really capable of, since their growth plates are not fully developed until 2 years of age, so running on hard surfaces is not advised.
All in all, Great Danes are good pets for families with older children and for people, who like exercising themselves, but are not recommended
for the elderly because of their huge energy needs.
I hope this short introduction about Great Danes will help you decide whether this dog is the right one for you.
