These Great Dane Calendars feature this regal dog in appearance, having dignity, strength and elegance. They are lean, tall, with cropped or uncropped drop ears. They have tails that are sometimes prone to injury due to their wagging abilities. Great Danes are squarely built with a rectangular head and a short, smooth coat. They are of the tallest of dog breeds with their great size and well-formed, muscled body. Known as the friendly giant, they should show no unprovoked aggression. There are times they may have a stubborn streak, but early training will help alleviate this problem. The Great Dane makes a great family dog with their gentle, loyal and affectionate nature and patience with children. Owners beware, though, this breed requires quite a lot of food to eat. They also need their space, but need to be included in the family within the house. Despite their large size, they should not be kenneled, but rather kept indoors as a member of the family. Great Danes adapt well to urban living if given plenty of space and exercise. They would be sufficient as an apartment dog, surprisingly, if space were available. When bored, however, this breed can become destructive, and due to their large size, can destroy things within minutes. They are lovable and very affectionate, and are also very playful. Although probably not suitable for young children due to their size, they are very affable in personality and activity with children. Great Danes truly love the comforts of home and you may find them sleeping in your big easy chair. Great Dane Calendars make great gifts.
