Do Danes like to fetch at all or do they like any other type of outdoor activities?

6/21/06 All Danes are different, but unless you have a very low enery Dane, they will love to do anything that you teach them to do. Most of them will need to learn how to play catch and return, treats are a help, but once they have it they love it. Mine also love to play in the water, not swim just jump up and down and play, but I have had to teach some to enjoy the water first! Also hide and seek is fun if you have two people, one to hold the dog and then you go and hide and see if they can smell you out,you can also do this with their favorite toy. You may have to help them in the begining, but they are very fast learners and once they get it they have got it. Also Trick training is great, and all of mine love it; sit, lay, sneak, bark, roll over and play dead, mine generely learn these by 3 or 4 months, they are so smart, you can pick up a book on trick training for dummies...that is what I did. Good luck Ann
