Great Dane Puppies for Sale: About the Breed

The Great Dane is a breed of dog that is known for its gentle temperament, personality, and disposition. If you're searching "Great Dane puppy for sale near me" you may recognize some of the most famous Great Danes: Marmaduke, Astro from The Jetsons, and of course, Scooby-Doo!

You might think Great Dane puppies for sale hail from Denmark because of the "Dane" in their name, but they were originally bred in medieval Germany to protect carriages and country estates and hunt wild boar and deer. Today, the Great Dane is most often used as a pet or companion animal and regularly makes the AKC's Top 20 Most Popular Breed list.

Characteristics

The Great Dane is a large breed of dog and can weigh 110-180 lb and be 35" tall! A Great Dane puppy for sale has an elegant, regal appearance, a powerful, muscular body, a deep barrel chest, and a smooth coat. Great Dane puppies have naturally triangular, floppy ears, but some owners prefer to have them cropped, making them stand up on top of their rectangular, long heads.

Their short haircoat comes in a variety of gorgeous colors and patterns such as blue, black, fawn, gray, mantle, white, brindle, harlequin, merle, and bicolor with or without masked faces.

Activity Level

If you're looking for "Great Dane puppies for sale near me" you may be wondering how much exercise this giant dog needs. Great Dane puppies do well with a few walks a day. Despite their size, they don't have boundless energy and the need to run around in a large, fenced yard (although they would certainly love that). In fact, too much exercise could strain their growing bones.

It's important to give Great Danes the daily exercise they require no matter where you may live. A Great Dane puppy for sale is equally happy exploring a walking trail with you or taking up the entire couch during family movie nights.

Disposition

While some people may be put off by its size and appearance, a Great Dane puppy is actually one of the most gentle, loving dog breeds. They get along well with other animals and children, and they don't have a high prey drive. A Great Dane puppy for sale will love to cuddle up next to its people and may even think it's a lap dog! Great Danes puppies are very loyal to their kid companions, but be sure to supervise playtime because Great Danes may accidentally knock over children due to their size.

Training

Socializing and training your Great Dane puppy when it is young is vital to ensuring a well-behaved member of society, especially due to its size. Luckily, the Great Dane is considered to be one of the easiest dog breeds to train. They are intelligent and eager to please their owners, so they'll work hard for a treat and some consistent praise.

Care

Great Dane puppies for sale are generally considered to be easy to groom, although they may require more grooming than some other breeds due to their large size. While they have a short haircoat, their coats can shed, especially in the Spring. Brushing your Great Dane puppy once a week is a great way to maintain a clean coat. You may need to visit a groomer for baths and regular nail clippings if your Great Dane pup is too big for you to do it yourself at home. A Great Dane puppy may drool quite a bit, so it's important to keep their faces wiped clean.

Cost

In addition to regular care, a Great Dane puppy requires extra-large everything! Be prepared to spend more on food and any needed medication or supplements. Because some living spaces have a weight limit, you'll need to make sure your home is suitable for a giant dog. You'll also need a vehicle spacious enough to transport humans and your growing Great Dane puppy.

While Great Dane dogs for sale are known for being a relatively healthy breed, they may be prone to some health problems common in large dogs, such as bloat (gastric dilatation-volvulus), congenital heart disease, wobbler disease (a condition affecting the vertebral column), osteoarthritis, or hip dysplasia. Always have funds tucked away for emergencies that may arise since bloat happens quickly and can be deadly.
