Similarly, you may ask, what age do great danes stop chewing?

Dogs need to chew. It is unrealistic and unfair to expect your Great Dane to stop chewing altogether. This is particularly true when she is teething. At around 5-7 months, you can expect a major explosion in the drive to chew as your Great Dane is losing her baby teeth and adult teeth are pushing their way in.

Beside above, do Great Danes bark a lot? While most Great Danes aren't nuisance barkers, if allowed to develop barking as a habit, they'll have what's probably the loudest, deepest, most far-carrying bark of any canine. The short coat is easy to care for, although the Dane does shed and it can seem like a lot of hair since he's a lot of dog.

Also question is, are Great Danes hard to train?

Great Danes are considered gentle giants. They are moderately playful, affectionate and good with children. They will guard their home. Great Danes are considered easy to train, but some Great Dane fanciers say that individuals can be stubborn learners.

At what age do dogs stop chewing?

When puppies are teething, between the ages of 3 and 6 months of age, they are also chewing! After your puppy's baby teeth are gone, she'll usually stop chewing over time, since the discomfort from her new teeth has disappeared. Older puppies may also go through a chewing stage between at 6 months and a year.
