How do I House Train my Dane?
House Training is very easy in Danes. It is almost natural for danes to want to potty outside. I highly recommend you crate train them. Danes need a crate that is just big enough for them to lay down comfortably. Let them sleep in the crate at night and take them out first thing in morning. Do not give them food or water in the crate, it is only for sleep. As long as you are consistent in taking your new pup out every few hours during the day then you should have them house trained within a month. Good Luck!
Should I get a boy or a girl?
In my opinion and experience with danes there is no difference in raising a male versus a female. Danes are extremely lovable and loyal pets. They are big lap dogs! Each one of them is the happiest when they are touching you in some sort of way. The Great Dane loves home and family above all, with a stable temperament and a sweet attitude. He/She is big and strong, but very sensitive and needs to be by your side. The Dane wants to please you and will if you are gentle and consistent in your handling of him or her. Will a Dane fit in with our family, do they need a big area? Danes are very affectionate with the family, dependable and devoted to children. They are good with the people they know but may be a little stand-offish with strangers until they know them better. Danes are very much a "house pet" and does NOT need a big house or area. They do well in small apartments. They thrive in a close loving family, and if you raise your dane with love and care, train your dane with patience, and socialize your dane well - you will be proud to have your dane as a part of your family.
What about Teaching and Correcting?
Teaching and Correcting is extremely important with your Dane!! This cannot be stressed enough. Danes want to please you as much as you want them too. With the right correction and teaching you both can be extremely happy.. You must be the LEADER! Danes need structure and correction just like your children do. They need to be taught what they can do and cannot do immediately after taking the home and consistently. You are the boss - You are the pack leader - You make the rules!! Be stern and firm with your Dane and both of you will be very happy.
