Like most dogs, Great Dane Dog require daily walks to stay healthy. However, it is important not to have this race, especially when young. Great Dane puppies grow very large, very fast, which puts them at risk for problems in bones and joints. Due to the natural energy of a puppy, Dane owners often take steps to minimize the activity, while the dog is still growing.
Thanks to its large size, Great Danes continue to grow (especially the gain of body weight) and most of the dogs. Even in a Danish one year old Grande will continue to grow for several months.
Great Danes are prone to bloat. Bloat is a serious condition that can be fatal if not treated almost immediately. It may involve the stomach, spleen and other organs. There are conflicting reports about how the condition is caused. It is often assumed that Great Dane is fed to a high level to avoid swelling. The Danes should not be allowed to gallop and run for hours and hours, and is believed to cause the excess air trapped in the abdominal area, resulting in painful swelling condition.
They love the exercise and the minimum they need to keep a dog healthy is a long walk daily.
