    About Great Danes

    Unlike what their name suggests, Great Danes originated in Germany, where they were initially bred mainly to hunt large prey. They are powerful, athletic dogs, but have calm, kind dispositions. These gentle giants are known as "couch potatoes" and are dependable, family-friendly dogs. Due to their size - they tend to weigh 100-200 lbs. when grown - Great Danes do best in larger living spaces, and are easy to train.

    Did You Know?

    The Great Dane of today wouldn't be very good at what he was originally bred to do—hunt wild boars. His previous fierceness as a predator has all but been eliminated to create a gentle being that gets along with creatures both human and animal.

    Origin of the Great Dane

    This German giant came to life by the hands of German fanciers who led as an example to breed these towering beasts of majesty. There is no known connection between the Great Dane and the Danish roots suggested by its name.
