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.
