One of the most lovable things about Great Danes is their affectionate nature.
Despite the fact that they are among the biggest breeds of dog – the Guinness Book of Records in 2004 declared a Great Dane from California the world’s tallest dog at 42.2 inches – they treat their human owners in as tactile and ’touchy feely’ a manner as the smallest lapdogs. It’s little wonder the world’s most lovable cartoon dog – Scooby Doo – is a Great Dane.
The only downside to this is the Great Dane’s habit of leaping up to show their love at the most inappropriate moment.
An English court recently heard the case of a giant 12-stone Great Dane called Hector who wanted to show his affection for a passing jogger. The only problem was that when he launched himself at the runner, he sent him flying into a flower bed and broke his ankle. LINK TO STORY
The judge eventually ruled against the runner, who had originally been awarded £15,000 in compensation. But it sent out a warning to all Great Dane owners. You do need to train your lovable giant properly so that he or she knows when it’s OK to behave like Scooby Doo – and when it is not!
