Great Dane temperament
Great Danes are one of the most gentle giants you will ever meet. They are known for their sweet and docile temperament, which makes them perfect for families with children. Great Danes love to please their people and are very loyal companions. Although they may be a little hesitant around strangers at first, they will quickly warm up once they get to know you. Great Danes are also excellent guard dogs, but due to their friendly nature, they make terrible watchdogs. If you are looking for a large dog that is easy-going and loving, a Great Dane may be the perfect fit for you!

Easy To Train
Easy to train dogs are more adapt at forming an association between a prompt (such as the word “sit”), an action (sitting), and a consequence (getting a treat) very quickly. Other dogs need more time, patience, and repetition during training.
Many breeds are intelligent but approach training with a “What’s in it for me?” attitude, in which case you’ll need to use rewards and games to teach them to want to comply with your requests.
Dogs who were bred for jobs that require decision making, intelligence, and concentration, such as herding livestock, need to exercise their brains, just as dogs who were bred to run all day need to exercise their bodies. If they don’t get the mental stimulation they need, they’ll make their own work–usually with projects you won’t like, such as digging and chewing. Obedience training and interactive dog toys are good ways to give a dog a brain workout, as are dog sports and careers, such as agility and search and rescue.
