Breed of the Month – Great Dane

This lovable giant ranks #14 out of over 100 different American Kennel Club recognized breeds. They can be in a family or single household and are great with everyone they meet. They have an agreeable personality and make great dogs for agility training because of their alert and responsive nature.

One thing to keep in mind with this large breed is bloat. Affectionately named, this condition is common in our “Scooby-Doo” friends. Gastric Dilatation-Volvulus (GDV) is the number 1 killer of Danes. Keep an eye out for our blog next month on GDV.

Average Weight: 110-175 lbs
Average Life Span: 7-10 years
General Colours: Black, Tan, Harlequin, Grey (Blue), Brown (Chocolate)
Activity Level: Medium
