Great Dane: What You Need To Know About The World'S Largest Dog Breed (And Why They'Re So Cute)

The tallest dog on record was a Great Dane named Zeus. Great Danes aren't built for cold temperatures or extreme heat. They don't have a subcutaneous fat layer or the skin and fur combo that would help them cope with the weather. A big yard can be a fun space for the Great Dane, but these are indoor dogs. They are known to be easy to train. However, stubborn individuals exist within all breeds. Early socializing your dog can help them grow into a calm, well-adjusted adult. Puppies need 90 minutes of daily exercise, 2-3 walks per day, and 2-2 walks daily. The biggest issue to look out for is bone cancer. This can be dangerous, as the dog’s stomach can twist.
