Morning all,

 

New member to GDO here. Myself & my girlfriend are due to move into our first home this weekend.

 

Next weekend, however, we are due to pick up our 8 week old merle, Dennis up in Scotland!

 

This is our first great dane and we are both are both very excited. Whilst we have spent the last 16-18 months swotting up on owning, caring for and nurturing Great Danes, we'd also appreciate any other advice more experienced owners have to offer us. :-)

 

Many thanks,

Tom

Thanks for the replies. He's doing great. He's 13 weeks old today. He loves his sleep & has his crazy 20 minutes in the morning and late at night. 

 

Here's some photos of him last week at 12 weeks!

Hi & Welcome to you and your adorable boy, he is just so very handsome.

 

Glad to hear you have done a lot of homework on what is sure to become an addiction to Danes, once you have owned one you will wonder why you would ever want another breed :)

There is a lot of information on this site but I would say the absolute basics are ......

Firm but kind training from an early age.

Plenty of socialisation.

They really love (and need) human company, they are not a dog to be left alone for hours.

 

Good luck and please keep those lovely photos coming.

Thanks everyone for the kind welcome and advice. I'll keep the photos coming when I can, Dennis sleeps 23.5 hours a day so the opportunity for photos are limited ! :D

You must be ever so proud of such a boy and isn't it great to know that others think he's lovely too.
