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 hundreds of 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 handbookthat 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.

A great book for beginners with any dogs & people with their first “giant breed”. I’d like to add the danger of tail wags to toddlers & young kids – the tail is at their head height & can cause quite few problems – as well as clearing coffee tables & other low/medium shelves. Great Danes also can’t seem to understand that just because they’ve got their head somewhere it doesn’t mean that their body will follow & fit, so they have a tendency to move furniture. This becomes even more of a problem if their wearing the “cone of shame” after surgery because it’s the size of a small satellite dish. The other addition would be to toilet training. Use a different phrase for pooping & you can get your dog to piddle & poop (I use “go toilet” & “go poops”) on command making travelling much easier. It also makes cleaning up much easier. My current Great Dane puppy, now 19 weeks old, was toilet trained in 1 & 1/2 weeks after I’d got him home. He takes himself out if he needs to go on top of me taking home out first thing in the morning & before bed, though I’ll usually take him out for poops just before or just after breakfast or dinner as well.

This is my second Great Dane ,he is now 7 months… It is a great refresher for me and some new things I did not know from having my first Great Dane. They are all so different. Highly recommend for first time Dane owners. Information from an actual Great Dane owner is always helpful. They are such magnificent creatures.

Rodney Verified Purchase
I have had 2 Great Danes through the years they were both males this one is a beautiful blue female. I was having trouble house training her because the pups peed and pooped in there concrete pad where they stayed and this book is really helping with that and getting my wife to understand her. She has fallen in love with her.
Hussein Verified Purchase
Very helpful and just perfect for when you are getting a puppy Great Dane.
Dawn Verified Purchase
This will be my first Great Dane puppy. I’m the type of person that has to do at least a year of research to have the best for my animals. The book was a huge help, I watch the YouTube videos and started purchasing items for her. I can’t wait to start this adventure.
Hope Verified Purchase
The book is really fantastic! We’ve had many dogs but just adopted our first Great Dane puppy and I had a million questions! I’ve already relied heavily on the book for just about everything from eating and nail care to thinking about crates and training! I also love the videos with Zach and Gus! This book is perfect — jam packed with information but also as quick read and easy reference tool! Thank you!

The book was very helpful, consistent with what the breeder, the vet and other owners have told us. You might want to add something about driving in the car and suggestions on securing them etc. Thank you!

So helpful! I am fostering a Great Dane puppy from a shelter who has stolen my heart and will become a permanent part of my home. This book was an easy read and full of so much useful information for a new Great Dane Mom. I would highly recommend it!

This book had wonderful information on great Dane behavior and training suggestions. I was a little disappointed in the depth of the information.

Carlie Verified Purchase
My family and I have raised many dogs over the past 25 years, but never a Great Dane. My husband has always wanted a Great Dane, and now we have an adorable fawn puppy! This breed specific puppy book was a fantastic purchase, and helped fill in the blanks for me and my family. Thank you so much for this wonderful book.

Paul Verified Purchase
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!

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!
