Big dogs are easier to train
Especially if you start when they are not so big, large-breed dogs can learn quickly and easily. They tend to have better manners than little nippers, which may be due to the way humans treat them. When you have a big dog, you have a bigger incentive to train him well—and stick with training to make sure he’s well behaved. “Teaching good manners and training are important for any dog, no matter what the size, but they are absolutely crucial for a big dog. It’s one thing if a toy poodle has a housebreaking gaffe, or jumps up on your guests; it’s an altogether different matter if a full-grown Great Dane does it,” says Flaim.
