Finding a Great Dane breeder

Finding a Great Dane breeder can be a long process. While many may think this is an easy decision, it should actually be the hardest decision you make regarding your dog. There are many Great Dane breeders with the same intention, to sell you a dog. Some of the best Great Dane breeders are those who don’t have fancy advertisements or brag about their champion dogs. Many times the best options are those that you discover through word of mouth.

Be skeptical of beginning or novice breeders. These rookie enthusiasts are more than willing to tell you what you want to hear in order to sell their first litter of puppies. Most of the time, the best breeders have a waiting list of up to a year. While this may not be ideal, it generally means that you are getting a quality puppy from a healthy, developed line. Experienced breeders will also be willing to answer your questions even after you have your new puppy at home, and in some cases, they will get that puppy back if health issues arise. Don’t be alarmed if you feel like your breeder is giving you a third grade on your living situation or your intentions with your pup. This is actually the mark of a responsible Great Dane breeder. Novice breeders often don’t ask questions that can often lead the family to make incorrect and uninformed decisions.

It is best to visit as many Great Dane breeders as you can. If you do the proper research, you should find numerous breeders in your area. It is best to visit all of these breeders and their litters in person. This is the only real way to ensure that your puppy is in good health and is raised with the proper tools it needs to become a well-adjusted, healthy adult.

When you’ve found the breeder for you, there are a few tips to remember when selecting your puppy from a litter. Your puppy should be at a healthy weight. This does not mean that your Danish puppy should have a “pot belly” as this can often indicate incorrect or excessive feeding, worms, or both. They should be encouraged and eager to meet you. Proper socialization at an early age is critical and should be initiated by the breeder to ensure that their Great Dane has the proper social skills and self-confidence to mature properly. Pay close attention to the mother (mother), as this can help you see how your puppy will mature. Her interaction with the mother and littermates will tell you a lot about her personality.

Remember to always do your homework and take your time. Important decisions like the Great Dane come with huge responsibilities! Making sure your Dane is off to a good start and that it comes from a reputable and responsible breeder should be your main concern, even if it means waiting a year!
