Elegance, aristocracy, grandeur and beauty are the first epithets that come to mind when a person hears the phrase "Great Dane". And indeed, confident to become, long powerful legs, a head resembling an elegant antique statue distinguish this breed from the general mass. The German Great Dane is distinguished by playfulness and mobility, and this breed is quite easy to train, not to mention the fact that this giant is able to become an excellent watchman and bodyguard. Despite its size, this dog is quite peaceful towards small children and pets.
Great Dane Standard
The constitution of the Great Dane should be dry, with strongly pronounced muscles, the skeleton is well developed, and the skin is elastic, but not sagging, forming folds.
The height of males at the withers must exceed 80 centimeters, for females this standard is 10 centimeters lower. The sacrum of both sexes should be a couple of centimeters below the withers. As for sexual dimorphism, it is quite pronounced: males are larger and more massive.
Dogs range in weight from 54 to 90 kg for males and 45 to 65 kg for females.
The head is noticeably elongated, with a characteristic sharp transitionforehead to nose. Jaws well developed, but not protruding. The eyes are dark and almond-shaped.
There are several basic coat colors: black, fawn (ranging from ocher to light red), harlequin (snow-white base with black spots all over the body), brindle (fawn with black stripes), blue (gray, steel, mouse).
The coat is short, thick, without undercoat.
The tail is set high, saber-shaped, thinning from base to tip.
Features of behavior
Great Dane is a social dog, which is why he gets along well in families with children. However, it should be remembered that, in addition, this breed requires a special attitude towards itself. Firstly, Great Dane puppies, like adult dogs, need a special diet and certain physical activities, not to mention the need to closely monitor their he alth. And secondly, representatives of this breed need constant attention from the owner, who will be very missed in the event of an unforeseen separation.
Great Dane is perfectly trainable, but it is very difficult to retrain him. A properly designed training program can prepare this dog for almost any activity. However, the German Great Dane best of all manifests itself as a guard of a person and his property.
I would like to say a few words about the opinion of the people about the aggressive nature of the representatives of this breed. Absolutely any dog, regardless of itsage, size and origin, can become inadequate in relation to a person as a result of an incorrect approach to education or an incorrect attitude towards it. By the way, inexplicable aggression in the nature of the dog, as well as his cowardice, can cause disqualification at the show. Summing up everything written above, I would like to add that it depends only on the owner of the dog whether his Great Dane will become an excellent companion, loyal friend and reliable protector.

Actually, as everyone knows, "dog" in translation from English is a dog. That is, if you think logically, there are no other dogs, except for Great Danes. Quite a royal touch. But even among those breeds that bear this proud name, there is an aristocratic hierarchy. And the royal dog among them is the coolest and most important
Each girl has her own ideas about male beauty and the concept of "ideal man", includes various qualities. But whatever it is, this ideal, it must be found. To do this, you should not raise the bar too much and get hung up on trifles, otherwise there is a risk of remaining in the old maids
Every animal needs love and affection, as well as the full satisfaction of natural needs. That is, the availability of food and water, the opportunity to walk in the fresh air, get to know relatives and breed. It is the latter question that is often the most acute. It's one thing if your pet is a show winner and there is a queue for puppies. And it’s completely different if it’s an ordinary mongrel. In this case, sterilization will be a good solution to forget about the problem of adding offspring forever
