Male vs. Female
Should I purchase boy or girl dane?
In my opinion and experience with danes there is no difference in raising a male versus a female. Danes are extremely lovable and loyal pets. They are big lap dogs! Each one of them is the happiest when they are touching you in some sort of way.
The Great Dane loves home and family above all, with a stable temperament and a sweet attitude. He/She is big and strong, but very sensitive and needs to be by your side. The Dane wants to please you and will if you are gentle and consistent in your handling of him or her.
Will a dane fit in with our family, do they need a big area?
Danes are very affectionate with the family, dependable and devoted to children. They are good with the people they know but may be a little stand-offish with strangers until they know them better.
Danes are very much a "house pet" and does NOT need a big house or area. They do well in small apartments.
They thrive in a close loving family, and if you raise him with love and care, train him with patience, and socialize him well - you will be proud to have him as a part of your family.
