we have an 11week old great dane.  we've had him for 2 weeks now and he's the sweetest dog.

we are working on training (behaviour, crate, and potty) and so far he's doing pretty good.

any tips or advice or just general info anyone want to post?

here's his pic.   the top pic is his parents.  dad (standing in pic)  is 190lbs and 38 inches tall (at shoulders).  mom is 160 and 34 inches at shoulders.     the second is our sweet boy.   he's 11 weeks and 33 lbs.

 

Do you have a BOY??   If so, come join us at RAISING BOYS!  It's a great group for mothers of boys of any age!  Hope to see you there!!   http://www.cafemom.com/group/336/

I hope he is an inside dog. Great Danes are known to grieve in the absence of their owners. Danes that are kept outside have a significantly shorter life span than a Dane that is kept inside

We used to have one. My biggest nugget of advice is to get him a crate for when you aren't home. Ours ate a fouton couch cushion, a chair and a screened in porch while he was teething. Other than that they are awesome and such love bugs. I want to get another.

Make sure he dosnt get too much protein as a pup if big dogs grow to fast they have joint problems later

This is my lil girl. She is six months old. I will admit at first i didnt like her but she has calmed down so much. Is he hyper or is it just mine?
