6 sweet little basset babies still searching for a couch!
Treasure Island Danes is located on the coast of Maine. We strive to better the Great Dane breed. We are a family orientated breeder. Our puppies are raised in our home with our children and pets, and start socializing at a young age.

3 week photos! We still habe 2 harl boys searching for a couch!
Puppies started mush today, safe to say they love it!
We still have searching for the perfect valentine!
Almost 3 weeks, where did the time go?
3 weeks means lot of changes in their puppy area.
We will shrink the area so they can only be on their bed or going potty, this is to teach them to use the potty area. As they grow they free space will grow.
3 weeks also means that we start mush this week, theyve already started trying to get into moms dishes so that tell me they are ready for it!
These little guys are still searching for their very own Valentine!

*** House Training Your New Puppy ***
Since potty training/house training gets brought up a lot let's talk about training methods.
I have raised a lot of puppies over the years and I really feel like I have just about perfected house training 😝
Or at least made it easier. However there's always more than one way to "Skin a cat"... I'll wait while the PETA members leave the group on that one 😂
Anyways, for training puppies now I, like a lot of small breed breeders use a puppy pen/ exercise pen with a litter tray.
Puppies start out at 3 weeks old in a small pen about 2ft x 2ft, on 1 side is their bed and the other side is the litter pan with pellet litter (Never use cat litter).
At 4 weeks they are given another 2 ft of free space by adding another panel.
At 5 weeks they move to a bigger pen but are closed off into a smaller space over night with just their bed and a litter pan. They are now old enough to go outside so after each meal I take them out in the yard for about 10-15 minutes of playtime (Weather permitting)
At 6 weeks they move into the largest pen, it has a litter pan on each side, but it also has a divider which is closed at night. From hear on out they are taken outside after each meal for at least 20 minutes (Weather permitting)
By 7 weeks they fully understand that potty happens in the litter pan or in the grass. They start learning the dog door and are always rewarded with praise when they potty in the grass.
They stay on this schedule until they go to their new homes.
At 8 weeks my puppies start eating each meal in their crate. I also start playing crate games by tossing a treat in the crate and letting them go in get it and come back out. The door is never closed at this point.
Between 10-12 weeks I will close the door when they go in to eat. Then they get to go outside for at least 30 minutes or longer weather permitting.
By 14 weeks they love the crate and go right in eagerly waiting for food or a treat. This is when they start staying in for short periods of time with the door closed, after they have been playing outside and are starting to get tired. I close the door behind them and leave them crated for 1-2 hours.
They still sleep in the ex-pen over night at this age.
Between 16-18 weeks they will go in their crate at night when the adults are put up for the night, usually between 9-10pm. I will get up around 2am to let them out for the next 2 weeks and usually by then they can hold it over night from 10pm to 5-6am.
Breeders who start potty training their puppies please feel free to share photos of your setups on here and other training methods or tips.
This is an example of a puppy pen that I recommend new owners setup when bringing their new puppy home.
Panels are Best Pet Heavy Duty ordered from Amazon
Litter tray is a Rabbit Litter pan from Tractor Supply
Happy 2 weeks to these babes!

Congratulations on acquiring your Great Dane dog. Please find the instructions for your particular model listed below:
Although your Dane comes fully assembled, due to particular issues during production, we do occasionally have issues with components such as screws. They invariably are either loose or missing altogether.
Mode 1: This is the sleep mode, activated for the majority of the day as the Dane ages. This is normal and you should not worry about it, just accept the peace and quiet while you can.
Mode 2: Psycho. Although we have tried to ease the effect of the Psycho mode, it’s not always possible. There are a few issues with the timer settings of the Psycho mode in regards to there being none. Should your Dane suddenly go from comatose to running around the walls, we cannot stop this feature.
Sunlight: Do not allow your Dane to stay in the sun too long. They can burn if left unattended but they also recharge. Too much of a charge and mode 2 can be activated without warning.
Energy consumption: This has been an ongoing issue as their energy consumption is constant. We have tried to put baffles, non return valves and diversions in place but none seem to work adequately. Safe to say what goes in comes out, in both solids and gas. The gas, although noxious, can only inhibit breathing of the owner for up to ten minutes.
Naming: Your Dane comes untitled as we feel owners should use names of their own. If you are unsure, we have listed below a few names our owners like to use:
You’re kidding me
Is that yours?
Don’t you dare!
Put that down
Get that out of your mouth
The zipper: We ask you not to try to open the Dane zipper on their belly as this will invalidate your one hour warranty. Rumours that they are merely toddlers in a dog suit is highly contested.
Software: Your Dane is pre-installed with the highest software and hardware. This includes the loyalty chip, the love every one chip, fun chip and, of course, the highly popular mayhem chip. They are all running on the What the hell operating system 12.2. Although this has been in circulation for many years, we have found it simply cannot be improved upon.
Should you have any queries you can reach us on 118-what-did-I-do. Thank you.
We hope you have many years of enjoyment with your boston. Please be aware that by the time you have read this, your warranty will have run out.
Unfortunately, we do not renew warranties and we do not offer refunds or returns...ever. It’s your problem now.
Happy first birthday to our Lucy Lou!
Pregnancy has not been confirmed as juno wont let our vet do what he needs to do, shes a wicked mamas girl. We suspect she is pregnant based on her clingy behavior! Hopefully we are expecting new years babies!
If all goes well we will be expecting puppies. New Year's day!
