Giant Breeds


Many of our Giant Breeds listed below are mature, soft and relaxed dogs that often require less exercise than smaller breeds and make great pets even in apartment sized living quarters.

Because they are large they are less intimated by other people and thus are much more adaptable to meeting friends, family members and children of their owners.

These breeds are known to be normally very calm and make great family dogs.

They are by definition stronger and when sensing threats to their owner[s] will become very protective.  Many of these giant breeds are known for their protective and life-saving skills.

Unfortunately Giant Breeds tend to have a shorter life span [often only 6-10 years], however their longevity is improving, and they also often contract hip dysplasia and arthritis, which can make them more expensive to maintain than other smaller breeds.

On the “Plus” side…be prepared to ‘stop traffic’ walking these dogs ~ they are ‘attention getting magnets’ from other dog lovers.
