Warning about Hartz Ultra Guard flea & tick prevention! 

Beware.... PETA kills animals!!

Also, just because I have a topic listed on this page does not  mean we or any puppies KMC has produced have experienced it.  I just decided to list topics that can be or are common in Danes as well as other breeds of dogs as well as topics of general interest.

Have questions "swirling" around in your mind?  Well, below are links to pages that I hope will be helpful to you.  Each link opens a "new window" so just click the "close" button when finished reading.  You can also click here to see if you should even get a Dane.

If you're considering getting a Dane, please make sure of your commitment.  They aren't called gentle GIANTS for nothing.  It's like living with another human being... only better because a Dane will forgive you a lot quicker when you scold them for doing something wrong.  This breed of dog is so loving and willing to please, you'll rarely find a Dane owner with just one so beware,  they are addicting!
