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 Montana?
Montana is a great place for dogs, especially in the summer – with gorgeous outdoor space and plenty of room for adventure.
The state ranks pretty consistently in the average range for overall pet-friendliness but has great strengths in animal welfare and dog-friendly attractions.
We reviewed two significant studies that rank all 50 states by pet-friendly factors. The first, by animal advocacy group Pawsafe, ranked Montana as the 34th most pet-friendly state.
The second, by consumer safety review site Safewise, ranked Montana quite low at 45th.
The state scored very well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. However, because of its harsh winters, and less access to pet services in rural areas, Montana took a hit.
Combining these two studies together put Montana towards the bottom of the list of pet-friendly states.
