Great Dane Dogs & Puppies for Sale

Great Danes are gentle giants, with an imposing size and a heart full of love. If you're considering adding a Great Dane to your family, you'll need to carefully consider their needs and your commitment to their care and well-being. Read our guide to buying and rehoming a dog safely for more information.

What are the characteristics of a Great Dane?

Great Danes are incredibly gentle, friendly, and patient, making them excellent companions. Despite their size, they're known for being loving "lap dogs" who seek affection and closeness with their families. They're known for being playful and spirited, especially in their younger years. Training and socialisation are essential from an early age to ensure they grow up to be well-behaved adults.

Are Great Danes a good choice for families?

Yes, Great Danes can be fantastic family pets. Their affectionate nature makes them great companions for children. However, their sheer size does mean they can accidentally knock over smaller children - interaction should always be supervised to avoid any surprise bumps.

Are there any downsides to owning a Great Dane?

Their size is both a unique feature and a challenge. Great Danes need plenty of space to move around comfortably, so they aren't best suited to living in small spaces like flats. Their appetites also match their size, so ongoing food costs will be higher than with other breeds. Great Danes also have a shorter lifespan than smaller breeds - typically 7 to 10 years - and can be prone to specific health issues, such as hip dysplasia and bloat.

How much does a Great Dane puppy cost?

The cost of a Great Dane puppy in the UK varies, typically ranging from £600 to £2,000 or more, depending on lineage, location, and health checks. Remember, the initial cost is just the beginning. Ongoing expenses for food and healthcare will add up over time.

How long do Great Danes typically live?

Great Danes generally have a lifespan of 7 to 10 years, shorter than many smaller dogs. Providing a healthy diet, regular exercise, and vet check-ups can help extend their time with you.

Are there any common health issues I should be aware of?

Great Danes are susceptible to certain conditions like hip dysplasia, heart diseases, and gastric torsion (also known as bloat), which can be life-threatening. Regular vet check-ups and understanding how to recognise these conditions are important to keep your pet healthy and safe.

How much grooming do Great Danes need?

Great Danes have a short, sleek coat that doesn't need much grooming. Weekly brushing will help manage any shedding and keep their coat shiny. Theyll also need regular nail trims, ear cleaning, and dental care.

Is a Great Dane the right dog for me if I have a small living space?

While Great Danes are relatively calm dogs, their size means theyre best suited to homes with more space - ideally with a secure, fenced-in garden or outdoor space to explore.

How often should I exercise my Great Dane?

Great Danes arent hugely energetic. However, they do need daily walks and opportunities to play to maintain their health. As with many large dogs their joints can be easily damaged, especially while they're still growing, so any intense exercise should be carefully managed.

How can I find a Great Dane to rehome?

Browse Gumtree's listings to find owners who prioritise the health and temperament of their dogs and puppies. A reputable owner will be open about the history of their animals, generally knowledgeable about the breed, and willing to answer all your questions.

Gumtree takes animal welfare seriously. To protect pets sold online our listings comply with the Pet Advertising Advisory Group's minimum standards.

Are there similar breeds I might consider?

If you're drawn to the Great Dane but exploring other options, consider slightly smaller breeds like the Mastiff or Saint Bernard. These breeds share the Great Dane's large size and gentle demeanour but have their own unique characteristics and care requirements.
