After this surge in popularity, the breed started being refined and standardized. The AKC registered the Great Dane finally in 1887 and placed it in the “Working Dog Group.” After it was not used as a hunting dog any longer, it became a guard dog or a pet. This breed is still popular in spite of its size being trying on owners at times.

This breed is a gentle, laid-back dog with protective instincts. It is not usually that aggressive of a dog. Despite its huge size; it is great to have around kids. The dog will need to be trained though not to jump up on children or adults because the can make someone fall over.
It can be a good companion dog if socialized from an early age. The Great Dane can shy away a bit from strangers as they get older. They do need a certain amount of activity. This dog should also be obedience trained so that it knows how to act in a variety of situations. Due to their great size, they make great watchdogs and don’t always have to get aggressive to chase people off.
