Any other Great Dane people out there? Ours is 7 months old, a male, our first really big dog. He's been a wonderful addition to our family so far, but his size has definitely been a challenge at times (he seems to grow before our eyes-and obviously this is something that we were prepared for when we got him).
Our particular challenges: finding chew toys that he does not completely, immediately destroy (he is >95 lbs) or try to swallow; fear from others as we're out walking, etc. as he still "acts" like the puppy he is but is much bigger than most grown dogs that we know at this point (other dogs that he has been socializing with while smaller, owners are becoming somewhat reluctant as he is dwarfing those dogs now).
I have started "wearing" him leashed around my waist when we have company over so that he is secured to me and company feels secure that he will not try to sit on them (he does drag me somewhat and does think he is a lapdog). I really don't want to keep him crated while company is over, as I don't want him to negatively associate strangers w/being secluded (maybe I am overthinking).
I guess the point of this post is to get tips/pointers? Sorry if my OP is all over the place, my 2 year old is wanting to "help".
