This is the best Great Dane book that I have read and I've read four recently. We are planning on breeding and possibly showing Great Danes and I have been reading everything I can get my hands on. Not only is this book easy to read, but also the most comprehensive. I also feel that it is the most balanced. Some books are written by dog fanatics and are a little extreme. This book seemed to be very centered with an understanding of reality. It gives good information on conformation (much more than the other books), breeding, training a dog (nice section on housebreaking), and even a little on showing your dog. If you are only going to buy one book on Great Danes, I would buy this one.

My family recently decided to add a dog to our house. All, except the cat, were in agreement. I argued for a Great Dane. I had some friends who raised them when I was a kid and a professor who had one when I was in seminary. I remembered them as being impressing, friendly and faithful. Just to be sure, though, I bought this book to learn a little bit more. I'm glad I did.

The book does a fair job of covering the basics that any dog owner would need to know and does them from the point of view of having a dog that may well be the second largest member of the family. It is common sense to know that a Great Dane can steal food off your counter top a lot more effectively than a Chihuahua but there are other factors that are not so obvious. The book also does a reasonable job of going through the early training process and getting the dog house broken. This turned out to be of less use to us because the dog we obtained was already an adult and had been trained. Still, it might come in handy in the future.

For me, information about the breed was of the most use. This included discussion of temperament, differing varieties and such. After reading it, I felt able to make an informed decision about getting the dog. Clyde is now a loved member of the family and the cat is still hacked off.

This book was helpful with some tips on owning a Great Dane, but most of what it had to say was general and not exactly specific to the Dane. The majority of the advice was about dog ownership in general. In fact, in the section "Is the Great Dane right for you?" it basically said, "if you are ready for the responsibility of owning a dog and have the room for it to live and the money to buy its food, then the Great Dane is right for you." I was hoping for a little more that applied to getting a Great Dane. All-in-all the book did have some good tips for anyone who is looking to own a large or giant breed dog.

This is the book you find on the wire rack at Petsmart. The ones that are all pretty much the same, just that they've inserted the appropriate breed name as necessary. In other words, a general dog care manual. If you're looking for something a little more in depth, this isn't it.

This was a well-written general guide for dog owners, and I enjoyed the pictures of great danes. While it was a good read, I would have preferred information more specific to this breed. It was a little general for my tastes. While the name is mostly accurate (it is a comprehensive guide for your dog), it was still somewhat lacking if you wanted more information regarding this breed.

My wife has consulted this book many times during the weeks since we brought our Great Dane puppy into our family. She (and I) have real confidence in this author's recommendations. It is open in our kitchen most of the time. I encourage you to consider it if you are in the process of acquiring (or thinking about acquiring) a friend of this special breed.

I just got my first GD puppy. I found this book to be very informative. It has everything from feeding, potty training, behavior problems, diseases etc. to showing off your Dane.

I enjoyed this book because it was easy to read and made a lot of sense as it explained how to train my Great Dane. I would recommend it to any new Great Dane puppy owner.
