History: They were originally bred in Germany for the purposes of hunting the European wild boar. It's believed by that they descend from the English Mastiff and the Irish Wolfhound. It is reported that in 1592, the Duke Braunschweig brought a pack of 600 Great Danes to a boar hunt. They date back to 3000 B.C.



  • They are easy to house train.
  • Don't allow your Great Dane puppies to jump and don't take them jogging until they are at least 18 months old because it will reduce stress on the growing bones and joints. Because they are large dogs it take awhile for their bones and joints to become stable.
  • They rank at the 24th most popular dog breed, according to American Kennel Club (AKC).
  • Need early socialization 
  • Can have development issues. 
  • Scooby doo is a Great Dane.
