The Great Dane is known as the Gentle Giant for a reason, they are extremely loving and caring. They are a calm breed and love to be with their family. The Great Dane is a wonderful breed with many great gualities, but it is not the breed for everyone. The novice owner has a responsibility to their Great Dane to seek the advice and guidance of established, experience owners, and/or experienced owner. The Great Dane is an indoor dog, people and family oriented, and in need of quality attention. Because of their large size training from an early age is very important, mostly to teach them manners such as not jumping up, leaning against people, or knocking people down. Socialization is also important at a young age as some Great Danes can be slightly dog-agressive if they are not properly socialized.

Having A Pet Prolongs Your Life

Science has showed that as people take care of their pets, the pets are taking care of their owners. A recent study published in the American Journal of Cardiology found that having a pet can prolong his/her owners life. Pet owners generally have lower blood pressure, and pets help their owners to relax and keep more physically fit. It was also shown that pets help to keep the elderly connected to their communities.

The beauty of dogs is that spending time with them brings us closer to our natural selves. They relieve stress, improve our health, and keep us in touch with the fact that true happiness exists only when we live in the moment.

Nova Scotia Veterinarians Ban Tail Docking

Veterinarians in Nova Scotia will no longer cut the tails and ears of dogs for cosmetic reasons, prompting an outcry from some breeders. The Nova Scotia Veterinary Medical Association is forbidding its members from doing surgeries that alter an animal's appearance solely for cosmetic purposes. Veterinarians say docking a Doberman pinscher's tail, for example, is unnecessary and cruel. "In my opinion, Dobermans and Great Danes look great with their ears down and their long tails, so there's no reason to mutilate them by causing them to meet an arbitrary breed characteristic that has been around for so long that we can't remember why it's been around in the first place," said Dr. Frank Woodbury, a veterinarian in Halifax.
