A Great Dane is as happy in a condo as it is in a castle; all it needs is love and attention. Remember, though, this breed's huge size means it takes up a lot of physical space - on your bed, on your sofa, on your lap, and especially in your heart – which is where he or she will always want to be!

What's more, raise a Great Dane alongside other animals, and you will have no problem. They crave company regardless of whether their 'brother' or 'sister' is a Pug or a Pointer. Like all big dogs, though, they need to be trained as puppies and learn how not to throw their considerable weight around!

Great Danes love to range, meaning they need space to move around freely rather than intense exercise. So if you are welcoming a Dane into a small-size home, be ready to go out on regular walks.

If you are thinking about making a Great Dane a part of your family or are already a Dane owner, then be aware, a Great Dane is a huge commitment.

From choosing your Great Dane to managing his or her final journey across the Rainbow Bridge, read on and discover everything you need to know about these big-hearted hounds.

      About the Author

      Author Malcolm Lee’s love of Great Danes began over 30 years ago when he came face to face with a majestic male Great Dane named Blue. Since then he has gone on to love and own three of these gentle giants.

      After enjoying a successful career in the UK in PR, journalism, and magazine publishing, Mal with his family re-located to Greece.

      Since moving, Mal and his family have become actively involved in the welfare and re-homing of stray animals. They have fostered dozens of unwanted, neglected, and sometimes abused puppies and dogs.

      Mal and his family currently have three dogs, a senior Great Dane named Jax Teller, a feisty rescue Greek Hunting dog, and an abused Pit Bull, adopted as a ten week old puppy.

      Mal’s experiences with the Big Three; Arnold, Billy Ray, and Jax Teller are the inspiration behind this book about Great Danes.
