Remove ANY figurines on tables and lamps that can be knocked over by their tails now, so you don't loose something precious to you. LOTS of chew toys as well. Oh, you might want to get one of those huge cow pie shovels for the poop which is HUGE. They are a GREAT breed of dog, but LOTS of work as puppies. 80 pounds of food a week as adults is also not cheap either.

Big dogs require certain special things, like the food bowls off the floor, to avoid bloat, make sure you find a vet that has experience with large breed dogs. They are prone to different diseases, like bone cancer and heart issues. Also, the larger the dog the shorter the life span. AND TRAINING, TRAINING, TRAINING. Our last dog was a wolfhound (had a dane and an old english sheepdog before him), you could contain that dog with a piece of thread, but it took alot of time and patience.
