How Do You Care For A Great Dane?
The Great Dane is patient, friendly with children and enjoys being with people. This breed does not do well when left alone and requires obedience training early on because of its large size. Vaccinate your Great Dane when you first get her, and follow up with yearly booster vaccinations to maintain the dog’s immunity to disease. Worm your adult dog every three months and consult with your veterinarian about flea-control products. Be prepared to feed your dog a lot. Great Danes eat 3 to 6 cups of food twice a day. Feed your Great Dane high-grade dog food. The first ingredient should be meat if you want a quality product. Crude protein should be no less than 26 percent (for puppies, no more than 28 percent); crude fat, no less than 20 percent. Fiber content needs to be 4 percent or less. Socialize your Great Dane as a puppy with other dogs. Because of their size, Great Danes need to be trained early on not to jump up or lean into children and knock them over. Train your dog not to bite
