The baby is having a blast!
And the Great Dane is such a gentle giant, as you can see in this video.
Great Danes are generally gentle giants with a calm and patient temperament, despite their large size, which can be intimidating to some people. However, they are usually good-natured and very gentle, as well as careful around babies and small children, which is the perfect fit for this family.
The baby clearly loves her Great Dane, as it's giggling uncontrollably. It must be fun looking at the Great Dane from the baby's point of view, as you can see here.
Proper training and socialization are crucial for any dog, including Great Danes. Teaching your Great Dane basic commands and exposing them to various people and situations from a young age can help ensure they are well-behaved around children.
Early socialization will also help make them more adaptable and less likely to become anxious or fearful in various situations.
Regardless, it's essential to supervise interactions between a Great Dane and a baby, especially when the baby is very young. This is not because the dog is likely to be aggressive, but simply due to the dog's size and the potential for accidents.
However, Great Danes, just like any dog, can also have a bad day, and it's always advised to supervise your dog around babies and young children to prevent anything from happening.
They're going to be best buddies for life!
