  • They are beautiful dogs. My in laws have one and he is just a big baby and couldn't be happier just living in the house with a yard big enough to potty in. He is just the biggest lover and absolutely loves all sorts of animals and kids.

  • My mom had one growing up. She said it was a very nice dog.

    Of course, with that much dog, you need a lot of room for them to play.

  • Also when they are puppies they need obedience classes and an owner who can maintain the pack leader stance cuz if not trained and controlled at a young age they can become very unruly and out of control.

  • OP.... I already have a Dane and know all about them. I just wanted to see what people think because so many people have so many misconceptions about them. Like they don't actually need tons of room. They are considered one of the best apartment breed dogs by the AKC.

  • Anon.... is right! They arent a high energy breed. So they are great for apartments, as long as they are exercised well. They are great with children as long as they dont mind being knocked

  • Great dog! Very sweet. My biggest problem with them is there life span is only about 9-12 years for the average dane.

  • VEry sweet dogs...a friend of mine breeds them (yuk!) I hate breeding...anyway, they have a short life expectancy and can have a lot of hip problems like any big dog. but they are very sweet and beautiful.
