Bringing home a new Great Dane is one of the happiest moments for a new owner. However, this happiness can quickly turn to chaos as the puppy mayhem takes over…

From puppy biting, diarrhea, and food choices, the list of questions and issues can feel endless…

As frustrating as this can be – I was right there with you many years ago! I felt overwhelmed by the decisions and issues, and my initial happiness after bringing my dog home turned to despair.

I had waited years to bring home this Great Dane, and all I wanted was to give them the best care, but I felt completely lost… There were literally NO resources available that answered my Great Dane puppy questions!

Fast forward several years and I started this website to begin answering the many questions that I had as a new Great Dane owner. Not only did I document the information that I had learned, but I started to hear from other new owners about the issues that they were experiencing as well!

After helping thousands of readers, there were some clear patterns that emerged!

To save you time, money, and your own sanity – I put all of these details into one simple and easy to read book called “The great dane puppy handbook“.

This is EXACTLY what I wanted when we got our first Great Dane! But unfortunately for us, there was unfortunately nothing like it available…

This book is jam-packed with helpful information, tips, tricks, and timesavers that will not only save you money, but help you have a better relationship with your dog.

I want you to avoid these pitfalls, and have a happy and healthy relationship with your Great Dane from their first day until their last.

All of this information has been distilled into simple chapters that make it easy for you to understand, take action, and feel at ease with your Great Dane.

Caring for a Great Dane over the course of their lifetime will cost thousands of dollars.

For just a tiny fraction of that cost, you can get access to The great dane puppy handbook that will lower that cost by sparing you from making bad purchases and preventing expensive medical bills!

Last but not least, it will help to put your mind at ease.

I thought it was a good book and a real good reference for Great Danes. I like how you give info in easy to understand format. Thanks for your work in getting the word out on how great Great Danes are. BTW, we just got 2 GD puppies a few weeks ago both girls. Lyca and Jetta, both black with small white spot on their chest and one has a little white on each hind foot and the other has a little white on her hind heels, it can only be seen from the rear. Thanks again and I subscribed to your YouTube channel and I really like the free bonus material.

Good basic breed specific info


Claire   Verified Purchase
Great book! We just added our first Great Dane puppy into our household. Some of the things that I had concerns with were addressed in the book, such as biting and feeding. These dogs grow so quickly and it was great to have such a comprehensive resourse to help us with her now and as she continues to grow. Thank you!

Vicki   Verified Purchase
Loved the book! We are expecting to bring our Great Dane puppy (Cooper) home the end of this month. Being a first time Dane owner, this book is extremely informative and provides useful information to help us prepare for our new addition to our family.


Snjezana   Verified Purchase
It is a great handbook. Give me a complete idea of what to expect before bringing my baby giant home!


Mike   Verified Purchase
This book has a lot of great information in it! As someone who has owned dogs in the past, there is new information here that I, simply, hadn’t ever thought about. Everything is presented in a clear and concise manner. This is a must-read for any new Great Dane owner. Really though, the information would be helpful to a new dog owner of any breed!


Rod   Verified Purchase
This e-book is a quick and easy read for the beginner Dane owner. It covers a diversity of important topics in comprehensible language.


Stephen   Verified Purchase
From finding Gus and Zach on YouTube, to ordering book. The approach Zach takes, coupled with his knowledge has genuinely filled me with confidence in getting our wee Dane pup, Ophelia in a few weeks time. Thank you to the guys and girls at Great Dane Care.
P.s you can order the book on Amazon UK as I did for ‘us’ across the pond.


Lori   Verified Purchase
I think it’s a great book full of tips and tricks but geared more towards a new great Dane owner vs a seasoned veteran (on Danes #4&5). I definitely agreed with a lot of what it said. I still enjoyed reading through the book. Money well spent. I actually would have loved to have the option to buy a paper version of the book. The online version made it feel like I was scrolling through a Google article. Know what I mean?


Lynette   Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. It is light hearted, clearly written, and full of great information on Great Danes. It is a quick read and I would recommend it to anyone thinking about getting a Great Dane puppy.


Ashley   Verified Purchase
This book is a MUST HAVE for someone who is getting a Dane for the first time – it was a wealth of information on multiple topics. I really appreciated the organization of the sections & how things were listed in an “at-a-glance” format; particularly for the feeding & immunization schedules.
The information is also presented in a way that each owner can absorb & select which methods suit their lifestyles best. Thank you Zach for all of the effort that went into putting this together & also on the Great Dane Care website – we really appreciate these amazing resources for our new pup!


Mike & Jen   Verified Purchase
This book has provided invaluable guidance on numerous topics. We recently purchased our second Great Dane and while familiar with Great Danes we now realize, thanks to the GD puppy book, that we didn’t know as much as we had thought. This book has made a world of difference in the training, nutrition and overall experience of having a new puppy! Thanks and please keep up the great work….the YouTube videos are also a great source of information!


David   Verified Purchase
The great dane puppy handbook was an EXCELLENT beginning source of information leading up to my decision to buy a Great Dane. The information in the book was enough for me to feel informed about this exciting new adventure. As the handbook indicates, it is not a catchall and you should do your due diligence, but it will definitely point you in all the right directions for more comprehensive information!


Kim   Verified Purchase
As a new Great Dane parent, Zach’s book great dane puppy handbook covers all the needed information in a easy to understand and follow language. I am just thrilled to have read it cover to cover and get some much needed insight. If your a first timer like we are, YOU NEED THIS BOOK TRUST ME!!!! Be sure to look Zach up on YouTube as well, LOVE the videos!! Keep them coming!!!


MJ   Verified Purchase
Fantastic user guide to how to properly love and care for your new Dane puppy! A lot of great tips for classic issues all dogs have as well.


Lizzy   Verified Purchase
I would’ve saved so much time and effort if I had just bought this book from the beginning. I can’t recommend this book enough if you’re thinking about getting a Great Dane.


Kane   Verified Purchase
This book is a must read for anyone who is thinking about owning a Great Dane or already owns one!


Mike   Verified Purchase
Over the last 47 years, we have owned 19 Great Danes. We have a dozen or so other Great Dane books on our shelves, but none really focus on puppies. This is by far the best book on Great Dane puppies and we wish that we had it sooner!
