Danes tower over most other dogs with a height of 32 inches at the shoulder. While standing on hind legs, the Great Dane is taller than most people. They are the ideal illustration of balance and elegance, and these powerful giants have the smooth and easy stride of born noblemen. They have coats in different patterns and colors. The best-known pattern is the black and white patchwork pattern which is popularly known as a harlequin.
The Great Dane Is A Sweet Dog By Nature
Despite their sweet nature, the Danes are alert home guardians, and their mere sight will cause an intruder to think twice. They are also patient with kids and make friends very easily. For dog owners living in apartments, the Great Dane adapts very well and tolerates diverse weather conditions. The dog is also low-sensitivity and can handle all kinds of owners. If you live in a chaotic and noisy household, the dog will be comfortable with the conditions around them.
While other breeds are aloof and independent, the Great Dane is affectionate with family. It bonds easily and feels more comfortable with humans. The bonding process can be made easier and smoother with treats. Affection for the family makes the dog the perfect companion for your kids. Your kids will not lack a play companion, and the giant, friendly nature of the dog breed will be the perfect choice of a partner.
The Great Dane’s short and smooth coat does not shed much. Weekly brushing will ensure that the shedding is kept minimal though the hair loss will be more profuse during the shedding season. The shedding is once or twice a year and will require daily brushing.
