My two Labs, who are about 15 months old, are 90 and 100 pounds. I couldn't imagine a Great Dane! How do they do indoors?

Also, the most destructive weapon a Lab has is his tail!

He's my first Dane so my sample size is exactly 1, but Abe does great. We live in a 1200 sq ft condo downtown so it gets a bit crazy, but totally worth it.

That said, we go to the park 2-3 times a day and he usually goes to work with me.

I'll put a pack on him and take him to the grocery store, use him as my shopping cart/pack mule, take him to bars and restaurants (most places have seating outdoors)...

And I agree, the tail is a deadly weapon...cover your nuts when it starts whipping!

I think Great Danes are Ideal for any home. They have a great attitude, they are aware of their size and confident. They don't bark at everything, but when they do bark its for a reason. There isn't much concern for health issues but sometimes they develop arthritis when they get older. Just make sure you don't get a backyard breeder...that's when you run into problems. And yeah the tail is as destructive as a light saber!

Ha, he packs the beer, meat and ice cream. I handle the rest.

They love people chairs...

I have a plethora of those orange and blue rubber chuckit balls. Best ones I've found and if you go to dog parks a lot the regular tennis balls are nothing more than a piss sponge. Sucks when another dog grabs it and plays keep away with their owner. Usually a girl, "sssssnowball come here, ssssnowball!" Usually happens when Lucas drops it to sniff some ass.

Outside of driving a Bentley like Neil, a humongous dog is the greatest ass-magnet ever created. Abe has reeled in more high quality skank than I could ever have imagined.

When he was a puppy, I'd take my laptop and work at the bar across the street while he'd patrol the patio. Talk about fish in a barrel.

We're a Dane family too. Gracie is 9 and just awesome. Everyone loves a Dane.

We just went through GDV with her Sunday. Luckily we got her to surgery just as she collapsed- it was 30 minutes from initial symptoms to collapse- I couldn't believe how fast it was. Anyway, old girl is doing well, it's been a rough few days for her. You guys with deep chested dogs should know the symptoms and consider gastropexy.

Glad to hear your pup made it Alex. Abe got pexy'd when he got neutered, it's absolutely a must.

Had my Dane tacked when I chipped her and had her fixed...total worth it. Elevating the food and water dished should not be undervalued.

Here are my two little ass clowns. One is a Boston Terrier (ex wife's dog) the other is a Ridgeback Cur dog mix. No matter what I do they still find a way to get on the couch.
