Facts - Overview

As a pet owner, it is important that you familiarize yourself with Great Dane breed info. Known for so many names such as Grand Danois, the Tiger Dog, the Dogue Allemand, the English Dogge, and the Danish Dog, this large dog has been around for hundreds of years, although no one could tell whether the Great Dane dog breed is truly associated with Denmark, as the name suggests. What is certain is that their great size led them to be named as “the Apollo of Dogs”. The Great Dane, which is also a member of the American Kennel Club, is noted for their courage, elegance, stamina, speed, nobility, and beauty.

The height of a mature male Great Dane is about 32 inches, while the female is less than 2 inches than the male. Danes usually weigh about 170 pounds. The Dane’s smooth coat may be blue, mantle, black, brindle, harlequin, and fawn. Some Danes are merle or white. They may also have natural or cropped ears during dog shows.

The Great Dane is gifted with physical and mental strength. But even if they’re large, they are of gentle disposition. Given that they don’t bark that much, they make great watchdogs because of their bravery and loyalty. Their size also intimidates intruders.

This breed is likewise entertaining. They’re great with children and easily adapt into their environment. Their energy reflects the happy demeanor of the people around them. The mild manners of Great Danes also endear people towards them. Moreover, this breed does not demand a large space and needs moderate exercise only. What the Dane needs, however, is company.

What’s good about Great Danes is that they are very intelligent and fun-loving dogs. They are protective by nature, and are easy to get along with. You could even leave a baby with a Great Dane nearby. Their chiseled bodies and elegant necks add to their powerful look. 


Facts - Personality

Knowing about Great Dane personality will help you and your new pet get along well. It was believed that the Great Dane originated in England or in Germany, but there is no evidence to support as to whether they came from Denmark. They were originally a hunting breed, taught to chase wild boars. The Great Dane was perfect for such task because of its height, speed, and stamina. Intelligent and fearless, they also make the best watchdogs. The Great Dane temperament is characterized by affection, gentleness, and loyalty. They are very friendly towards people, especially children.

With the right care, they can become good household pets. Thus, they should not grow under hostile or aggressive training methods. They have the tendency to be gleeful – they gallop and run. Despite their large amount of energy, they do not need too much space or exercise; a simple jog will do. Regular walks are also perfect for this breed.

The Dane likes to be around people that’s why they bond easily with family members. Their keen intelligence also makes it possible for them to obey commands such as coming, sitting, and staying in one place. It is the same intelligence that makes them a good show in performance competitions.

This dog is also sweet and playful. His courageousness does not hide the fact that he has a peaceful disposition. He is the defender of the household even if he doesn’t bark much. His sweetness is also the reason why he tends to nudge people with his head when he wants them to pat him. 


Facts - Care

Great Dane puppy care includes preventing the puppies from excessive exercise so that they would not have joint or bone problems. During playtime, though, it is advisable that the pups are kept within fences. This does not mean that they should be left that way while they are growing. At 3 to 6 months, the puppy should be trained early on. Great Danes grow quickly and should be given firm training and consistent structure. In spite of the gentle disposition of the Great Dane, they must be supervised while they’re young.

With Great Dane training, the puppies will not grow up unruly and will not chew or destroy upholstery. As a potential owner of Great Danes, be watchful over these puppies so that the latter will understand their role in their new home. When properly-trained they will grow up respectful of their masters.

New owners of this breed should understand that early preparation is imperative in Great Dane care, and early preparation also includes choosing reputable breeders. Be familiar with the breed’s background and devote your time to train and teach your Great Dane to socialize. When left for a long time, your dog might end up as a barker, and might cause distraction. Thus, commitment to training your Dane is an important facet of Great Dane adoption.


Facts - Grooming

Appearance

This section will help you with questions on how to groom the Great Dane. The Danish dog have rectangular heads and medium-sized ears. Sometimes the ears are cropped, sometimes they are folded toward the cheek. Aside from his massive build the Great Dane has a long, tapered tail. They are also muscular and has a square proportion. Their height likewise matches their length. Their eyes are large and round.

Generally, male Great Danes stand 32 inches in height, while the females stand at 30 inches. Their weight ranges between 120 and 150 pounds. The specific weight for male dogs is 135 to 150 pounds. The females, on the other hand, are 120 to 135 pounds heavy.

Coat and Color

The Great Dane has short hair, which is typically colored black, blue, fawn, harlequin, mantle, and brindle. Fawn is characterized as gold with black masks; harlequin is white paired with black patches or marks on the entire body. In contrast, brindle coats are a combination of fawn and black in a pattern of a tiger’s coat. Mantle consists of black and white. Blue, on the other hand, is actually gray.

Grooming Needs

Great Dane grooming includes brushing his smooth coat, which may shed heavily. With a firm bristle brush, smoothen out the Dane’s tangles and control his flyaways. Brushing daily is not required but this somehow prevents sheddings. When necessary, give the Dane a bath. Be patient because they can get uncooperative during bath time.

Bring your new pet to the vet regularly for ear checkups. There is a possibility of wax buildup which could cause infection. If you choose to clean his ears, do so with a vet-approved cleanser and not with a cotton swab. Don’t forget to brush his teeth to keep the tartar away. Groom your dog within 4 to 8 weeks of intervals.

Trim his nails, too, to prevent ingrown nails, as these could result to pain and infection. Keeping your dog’s nails short also saves you from the possibility of a scratch when your pet suddenly leaps on you. The Great Dane might get nervous at the sight and sound of clippers. The only way to lessen his agitation is to get him used to it. If you’re unsure what to do, take your Dane to a grooming center.


Facts - Health

A Great Dane may live from seven years to a decade. However, be wary of health concerns such as callus dermatitis or pyoderma on his elbow joints; congenital idiopathic megaoesophagus; lymphoma; dilated cardiomyopathy; gastric dilatation; demodicosis; hip dysplasia; and cervical vertebral instability.

To keep the Great Dane’s health, arm yourself the following additional information about the possible illnesses of the Tiger Dog.

A dog suffering from gloat will have a swollen stomach, thus preventing proper blood circulation. This can be serious especially if not brought to the veterinarian’s attention at the onset of symptoms.

Hip dysplasia, on the other hand, is not as alarming, but it will greatly affect him. When the Dane’s hip socket is displaced it is called hip dysplasia. If left unattended, this will result to the deterioration of the connective tissue and the hip joint.

Be sure that your dog does not acquire cardiomyopathy, an inherited heart disease. It is most common in large dog breeds. We make sure that all our breeders have complete medical histories of their puppies, as well as their parents.

Proper Great Dane nutrition will help prevent these health problems. Because of this breed’s rapid growth, give them adequate amounts of dog food. Check the protein levels. The best percentage of protein levels is 24% or less, and for fat levels, not more than 14%. 


Facts - History

As early as the ancient Egyptian civilization, hieroglyphics have resembled the Great Dane on their walls. The history of the Great Dane is also traced to 1121 BC, when similar written descriptions were found in the inscriptions of the Chinese. However similar these descriptions were, there is still a slight difference between the Great Dane of the ancient eras to the Great Dane you know now. The original Dane was bred for hunting. They were ferocious.

But now you can see that the Great Dane is more refined. Originally bred for hunting wild boars, this dog has developed a certain gentleness of disposition. In 1592, a pack of 600 Danes was brought by the Duke of Braunschweig to a boar hunt. Several centuries after, in 1876, Germany announced that the Great Dane is its National Dog. In 1891, the Deutsche Dogge Club in the same country adopted an official standard that described the Great Dane.

The Great Dane came to America in the mid-1800s and was recognized by the reputable organization American Kennel Club in 1889. Today, the Dane is bred not for hunting but as a domestic pet because of their affectionate temperament and friendly nature. The American Kennel Club nails the characteristics of the Dane you know of him today: loyal, friendly, courageous, intelligent, and quick. Great Dane history indeed shows how the mastiff had developed throughout the centuries.
