I know, duh. He was so tiny as a puppy he fit in my motorcycle pannier to go home, but he is now as the entire motorcycle. The average height of a Great Dane is around 90cm, 180cm if they stand, and the average weight is 120lb. That is a small adult! Think about it when it is time to go on a road trip or take the plane… Most hotels, restaurants, malls.. won’t have them, so they need a temporary home while you are away.
They are couch potatoes.
Aside from following me on walks, runs and beer runs, Napoleon spends most of his days laying at my feet. He goes play in the water for a while, or chases other animals, but that’s about it. If you want an active dog, look for another race. That said, it is heaven when he sleeps for the an 8 hour car ride without asking for food or a bathroom break.
