Giant dogs or Great Danes and ways to protect them

Danes or I’d rather say great Danes are giant dogs. They are also known as “Gentle Giants”. They are known for their height. Having a Dane at home any stranger will think twice before entering your house. You can find several heads turning back and looking at you and the dog, when you go out with the Dane outside. Danes are available in various colors like Fawn, Brindle, Black, Blue, Harlequin and Merle.

Danes require a little bit of exercise so I take my Harlequin “Caesar” for long walks. This is a two edged sword. It helps me as well as Caesar. Both of us benefit by this. Keep in mind not to jog with a Great Dane who is less than eighteen months old. If you do so don’t be surprised to find development problems. But they do not require a lot of exercise like German shepherds, Dalmations, Dobermans or any other herding breed. Great Danes have an amazing growth. As the saying goes, “Slow and steady wins the race”, it is important to grow them slowly and steadily. Great Danes grow naturally and reach their complete height when they reach three years of age. I am sure all of us consider our dogs as one of the family members.

Yes, but it is not easy to feed and care for a Great Dane. Great Danes are very obedient and can be easily trained. Danes have a good appetite. Make sure to feed them with the best quality of food with enormous nutritional values. Rice, meat (chicken, beef, lamb etc…), eggs, milk, dog food and bones must be given to them. Some people prefer feeding them with raw meat. Few Danes do not like this and it is better to always feed them with food fully cooked or even half cooked. Protein levels in the food are very important to avoid health problems like Pano and Wobblers Syndrome. Hence additional attention should be given to their food. Always choose a dog food by reading the first five ingredients mentioned behind the packet. It would be good if the first five ingredients include turkey, chicken, beef or potato and so on.

Are you living in an apartment, but wish do have a Great Dane? It is possible. They can be kept indoors. They love to be along with their master’s family. This is what makes them happier. You should never leave Danes outside in the yard for long hours. You will end up having a sick dog.” Caesar” always curls and sleeps in his room which is adjacent to mine. He goes to bed only after I go to bed. Great Danes love to be with children. But watch out, even just licking a child can knock the child down. Danes are good watch dogs. Just as I am about to put the pen down I can hear “Caesar” barking. Can you give me a minute; he is out in the garden, and I think somebody has come, let me check who that is? Oh it is the local guy who has come to install Dish TV Packages for our house. Both Caesar and I love to watch a lot of TV. But for the past one week we both are stuck with no TV and no entertainment. And I forgot to tell you, that I am going to send this article on Great Danes to the local newspaper. You can find a picture of mine along with Caesar in tomorrow’s evening paper.
