I went to a dog school with him once when he was around a year old and he didn't obbey at all, he saw all these dogs and just wanted to play...created quite a huzzle there..the trainer knew nothing about Great Danes and told me I needed a special trainer, he couldn't help. I thought that was rather disappointing.
I don't know much about Danes, so am hesitant to recommend a specific trainer. But you might contact the Deutcher Doggen Club, the breed club for Danes within the Swiss SKG, for advice as to a 'Dane Savy' trainer.

http://www.deutscher-doggen-club.ch/

You might also try these folks for advice:

This is a rescue in Germany with a special focus on helping Great Danes. (They rehome other breeds, too.) These folks know their stuff. They are in southern Germany, so they may know of a 'Dane savy' trainer not too far from CH.

And while not Dane-specific, you could to to Certodog for a trainer recommendation:

Our trainer trained through Certodog; I like her style, have a great deal of respect for her - which is a good recommendation for the Certodog program.

Maybe contact the Swiss Great Dane Club (Schweizerischer Club für Deutsche Doggen) for ideas on good trainers who maybe specialized in larger dog breeds.

I think it is important that the trainer understand that certain breeds have very specific characteristics. For example, Bassets are considered to be extremely stubborn. We have witnessed this on more than one occasion. The slightest hint of frustration on our part makes matters worse.

I know someone with 3 great danes. I would be happy to put you in contact with them if you think this might help. Please send me a PM with your contact details.
