Hi my name is Ricky. I have wanted a Great Dane as long as I can remember. This past Wednesday my wife surprised me with a 10 week old blue female. She had my children and their friends and my sister all present when she brought it to me. It was emotional. I also own a Staffordshire Terrier. She is almost 2 years old now and is also a beautiful blue. She is gentle and very smart. She is a part of the family just like the new pup will be. I want to be sure I recognize and mitigate any potential issues I can right now while she is young. I have done some research into the breed and want to explain her diet and exercise routine so I can adjust it for her best interest. Sometime between 6 and 8 a.m. after she has played for a bit we feed her 1 cup of eagle pack giant breed puppy food mixed with 6 oz of taste of the wild wet food. Also 1/2 teaspoon of NaturVet probiotic. Afterward we get her to take a nap ( sometimes she is resistant wanting to play and we move the chew toys) for a half hour or so. We repeat this same meal and nap at 11 am, 3 pm and 7pm. After the naps she usually goes into the yard with Nikki (my other dog) for an hour or 2 or she opts for a toy session on the family room floor. Any advice on her well being is welcomed and appreciated.
