One thing to remember–they don’t know their size, so you might teach the little ones to watch for their big gentle friend. One wag of that tail, and things can be off the coffee table, or even knock over a toddler. Regular puppy food is not what you feed a large breed dog. They have different dietary requirements.

A Great Dane mostly get along with other pets. Some may be aggressive with livestock occasionally. It varies from individual to individual. Some would not want another pet in the house, while others would sleep with the cat and other dogs. Great Danes love their family, and want to be where they are.
