The Great Dane For many years the most familiar of the giant breeds, the Great Dane enjoys the admiration of dog lovers everywhere — and for all the right reasons. Interestingly, the Great Dane is not Danish at all, but was developed in Germany to hunt wild boar. For this the Dane needed strength, speed, good sense and a deep reservoir of courage. Modern Great Danes fully reflect these virtues. The Great Dane is also as handsome as he is dependable. His sleek coat may be one of several beautiful colors and is easily looked after. This elegant relative of the early Mastiffs has a "people-pleasing" nature that makes a Great Dane an easy dog to live with in spite of its size. As you will see in this book, a Dane can be trained as a peerless companion and an able participant in many performance activities for all dogs. For those who own and love the Great Dane, there can be no other breed.From the Back Cover:
