The Great Dane at first sight seems to be a formidable and even dangerous dog, thanks to its outstanding physical characteristics. However, behind the exterior of the stern giant, there is in fact a calm and incredibly loyal family member. These dogs are not prone to aggression unless the actions of a stranger provoke them to protect the lives of their owners or their own.
Two Great Dane dogs made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest dogs in the world. Zeus was over 111 cm tall and weighed 75 kg and George was 110 cm tall and weighed 111 kg.
The Great Dane is considered the official symbol of Pennsylvania, the northeastern United States. The Great Dane is a leader in the top 10 most beautiful dogs in the world.
Only the following mating options for the Great Dane colors are allowed: black and blue, pale and stripes
Great Danes have a slow metabolism, so let your dog go for physical activity only 30-60 minutes after he has a meal. Failure to do so can lead to deadly intestinal congestion.
Training must emphasize total obedience to the owner.
