Choosing Great Dane Puppies and Dogs as Pets

Great Dane puppies grow into giant sized adult dogs and the above summary will help you to determine whether they are suitable as a family pet. If you are considering whether to buy a Great Dane puppy, adoption is also an option for this particular type of dog, or even selecting one from a rescue centre, or reputable dog breeder. This fun-loving dog is very energetic and requires daily exercise and activity, however, they shouldn't be encouraged to run too much when they are young as this breed grows big very quickly and vigorous exercise can affect their bone development. Therefore, it still requires lots of exercise, but in the form of long walks in the early days. The Great Dane has a short, thick, glossy coat that doesn't require too much grooming at all - once per week should be enough to maintain the healthy appearance of the coat. Due to the extra large size of this breed, it is difficult to bathe adult dogs, therefore, this breed should be dry shampooed as necessary i.e. when it is dirty or smelly.
