Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159378273X, Hardcover)The majestic Great Dane is indeed the giant of the dog world, although his physical size is not the only asset he offers the right owner. The Great Dane excels as a companion for the family and children, providing protection and convincing deterrence; as a personal friend, always responding with outgoing kindness; and as a performance animal, competing in obedience trials and the show ring alike. The Great Dane, of course, comes with his considerable demands as well, requiring an owner with a sizeable yard and pocketbook, plus the confidence to handle 120 lbs. of canine power. This book provides the much-needed information about the Great Dane’s remarkable history, an insightful look at the breed’s characteristics and standard, as well as puppy selection, feeding, training, and preventative health care.
In addition to an extremely authoritative text, this book presents over 135 photographs in full color, which prove to be as informative as they are attractive. Helpful hints and important information are highlighted to provide easy access to everything the reader needs to know about life with a Great Dane from puppyhood to the senior years.
