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 Oklahoma?
We have a few different studies to rank Oklahoma, and overall it’s a pretty great place to own a pet!
Two major studies ranked all 50 states by several factors related to pet-friendliness. They evaluated indicators like access to pet services and veterinary care, animal cruelty laws, pet-friendly accommodations, outdoor space, and dog parks.
The first study, by an animal safety group called Pawsafe, ranked Oklahoma quite well as the 16th most pet-friendly state in the country. The state scored well with Pawsafe for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards.
Another broad study, conducted by a consumer safety review site called Safewise, didn’t rank the state quite as well. Oklahoma came in 33rd most pet-friendly state in the country according to Safewise.
However, if we take the two studies together, Oklahoma is good to average in the pet-friendliness category.

A Trust for Public Land (TPL) study also reviewed the country’s 100 largest cities. They ranked all 100 by which have the most dog parks per capita. Tulsa ranked in 78th place, with 0.5 dog parks per 100,000 people.
