Group Description

Welcome! This site offers information on sharing your home with a Great Dane. Anyone can join to view the materials offered.
Individuals seeking information on the breed will find helpful information from experts and experienced Dane owners in the "Files" and "Links" sections.
Rescue groups and breed clubs and others who want to take advantage of the new "Marmaduke" movie, (release date June 4, 2010) to promote education on Danes, are encouraged to use the material in the "Files and "Links" section in their educational efforts. You may upload material you believe would help this effort, too.

Breed popularity changes over time. Last popular back in the 1950's (remember Disney's "The Ugly Dachshund" movie?), the Great Dane breed is again moving up in popularity. Beginning with the "ScoobyDoo" movies, all Great Dane lovers have noticed Great Danes with "bit parts" in films, then a surge in print and TV advertising: Danes are promoting couches, beds, flooring, food - even a construction company! The Marmaduke movie stars a well-bred, AKC Champion Dane, and so offers an excellent opportunity for Dane-lovers to help prospective owners learn about Danes and decide if a Dane is the right companion for their lifestyle.

This group does not allow discussion. It is offered only as a resource for tips on educational efforts, and to provide information and literature on the breed. The information is correct to the best of the various authors' knowledge but is not intended as professional advice on health or training. New and prospective Dane owners are encouraged to visit www.GDCA.org to find responsible breeders, regional rescue groups, and more information on the breed in order to make informed, responsible decisions.
