My wife and I having been thinking for months about getting a Great Dane.
We have a 10-year old son and my wife works part-time. We both have experience of owning dogs in the past, but never a Great Dane.
We came close to getting one last week, but I think unfamiliarity with the barking of the adult Danes at the breeder's house made my wife a bit scared, but she left just as keen to get one in future.
We want to spend some time getting more experience at being around Great Dane's, preferably not a people homes and were wondering if there were any way to do this we hadn't thought of.
We have no dog currently so can't go to training classes and meet them. We don't have any friends with Great Danes and we live in the North West of the UK.
Any ideas would be very welcome.
