Re: Reccomend a dog for my family
Great Dane is our breed and we had them for 30 years. Contrary to popular believes, very large dogs do not require lots of room as they are pretty sedentary and like their sleep. Danes make excellent apartment dogs as couple of 30 min walks a day keep them happy. Both of our kids grew up with Danes from age 0 - a better babysitter is hard to find. They also tend to stay out of trouble as they do not have anything to prove, given their size. They are extremely loyal and make great bodyguards, especially for their female owners and kids. I call them a 'girl's best friend'. Their reputation of gentle giants is well deserved, but you do not want to argue with one. In middle ages they were used to hunt wild boars.
But in the end, you get a dog you deserve: they are not just pets - they are family members, what you put in is what you get out. DogFish all the way: training and socialization is what makes a dog a good dog.
