Great Dane Characteristics
Great Danes are by far one of the largest breeds in the canine world. Though they might look a tad intimidating when they can come up to your belly button or higher, they’re one of the best-natured dogs around. For all of their size, Great Danes are sweet, affectionate pets. They love to play and are gentle with children.
The textbook definition of “Gentle Giant”, the Great Dane typically stands between 26-34 inches at the shoulder and can weigh anywhere between 100-200 pounds! A large friend indeed, the Great Dane has built a reputation for being one of the most friendly and social breeds around.
Originally bred to hunt wild boar, the ferociousness necessary to track down such a wild beast was eventually bred out of the Great Dane you see today. The Great Dane was developed long ago from Mastiff-type dogs, but they're considered more refined than other descendants of this ancient breed. Often found in blue or harlequin, the Great Dane comes in a variety of coats.
Even given their fundamental gentle nature, it's wise to give them obedience training classes when they're young. Their sheer size alone could make them impossible to control when they're an adult, regardless of how naturally well-mannered they are.
Cost is an important factor when you get a dog of this size--collars, veterinary care, and food are all more expensive for big dogs. In addition, you'll need both a crate and a vehicle that are large enough to hold your Great Dane comfortably. While Great Danes are very easy to get along with, there are numerous factors that make these dogs better suited for experienced dog owners.
How dog-friendly is Arizona?
In general, Arizona is a great place for dogs – with parks, plenty of dog-griendly restaurants, and great access to pet care. The one downside is that the state has a very low percentage of pet-friendy rentals available. This single factor brings their overall score down a bit.
Pawsafe put Arizona in the 46th place for pet-friendliness in their study. They noted the relatively low percentage of pet-friendly rentals at just 18%, which brought the overal score down.
A similar study from Safewise puts Arizona as a more pet-friendly place, ranking the state at 27th.
Both of these studies consider a wide range of important factors for your beloved pet’s health and happiness – including pet care costs, walkability scores, the number of pet-friendly rentals, and animal welfare laws.
How pet-friendly are Arizona’s cities?
SmartAsset reviewed the 100 largest U.S. cities to grade them for pet-friendliness.
In their study, SmartAsset named Tucson as the most pet-friendly city in the country! This is the second year in a row that the city has received such an honor.
Tucson has the fifth highest number of dog parks, vet offices and dog-friendly restaurants per 10,000 establishments. The city has 254 dog-friendly restaurants, which ranks in the top 20. There are also four dog-friendly shopping centers in the city.
In the same study, Phoenix was ranked as the 18th most pet-friendly city. Another study by WalletHub placed Phoenix 22nd.
There are 172 dog-friendly restaurants in the city and 11 dog-friendly shopping centers. Additionally, the city of Scottsdale tied for the 24th most pet-friendly city. It has 112 dog-friendly restaurants and 16 dog friendly shopping centers.
WalletHub did a similar study that rated Scottsdale as the most pet-friendly city in the country. The key factor for WalletHub’s ranking is Scottdale’s fantastic pet health and wellness. They also ranked third for outdoor pet-friendliness.
A few more pet-related Arizona facts
In Arizona, 43% residents own a dog, which is above the national average of 40%. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the most popular dogs in the state are Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, and Golden Retrievers. In the city of Phoenix, these breeds are just as popular, but people also love Pit Bulls.
The state’s total pet ownership percentage is also far above the national average with 69% of Arizona homes owning a pet. Like we said, Arizona loves its pets!
Animal welfare & dog shelters in Arizona
Arizona saved 2,458 more animals in 2020 than in 2019 and 33 of the state’s 66 animal shelters are no-kill shelters. The overall save rate for the state is approximately 86% so they only need a small increase to meet the 90% to become a no-kill state. We hope to see this percentage go up!
