Full Answer

Great Danes are often referred to as "gentle giants" and are extra-large dogs that stand anywhere from 28 to 36 inches and weigh anywhere from 110 to 180 pounds. This dog breed chows down six to 10 cups of food daily and craves human attention and companionship. Great Danes are wonderful protective family pets that require minimal grooming and bathing, but because of their strength and size, it is recommended they attend obedience class.
