Great Danes are fast growing dog breeds who need a healthy and nurtured diet that has balanced nutrition. At PetsWorld, you can find a variety of wholesome diets for your Great Danes from leading brands like Pedigree, CP Classic, Fidele, Hills Science Diet, Royal Canin etc.
A puppy Great Dane’s diet should have a 12 to 20 per cent fat content and protein content of 25 per cent to support an ideal growth in them. Having minerals like calcium and phosphorus in the food strengthens their bones and joints. It is suggested that Great Dane puppies be fed Large Breed Puppy foods. Royal Canin Giant Junior, Arden Grange Puppy Junior, Pedigree Puppy Meat and Milk are some of the best foods for Grear Dane puppies.
Bloating is a major issue which is experienced by most Adult Great Danes. Feeding them several smaller meals a day, and that too, which are Grain Free, is key in preventing the problem of bloating. Royal Canin Great Dane Adult, Acana Adult Dog Food, Pedigree Meat and Rice etc are some of the foods which serve the best for Adult Great Danes.
Senior Great Danes require a diet that is low in fat and high in fibre to maintain an ideal weight and healthy digestion. Highly Digestible Protein, which exchanges muscle mass for fat, can keep your Great Danes healthy. Fidele Light and Senior Adult, Orijen Senior and Pedigree Senior Adult are some of the apt foods for Senior Great Danes.
A cup of dog food should contain at least 300 calories. Male Great Dane puppies aged between 3 to 6 months need 4 to 8 cups of food daily, divided into at least three meals. From 8 to 12 months, feed males 6 to 10 cups of food and females 5 to 8 cups. Female adult Great Danes, aged 1 to 2 years, require 8 cups of food daily while their male counterparts need around 9-15 cups. As for the seniors, the feeding amount would depend on their activity level. 6-8 cups of food daily are the optimal amount for older Danes.
Eggs are great foods for Great Danes and are even known to treat an upset stomach. You can give eggs to them either in boiled or cooked form. Raw eggs are generally not recommended as too much of it can lead to biotin deficiency.
Some of the best fruits to feed your Great Dane are Apples, Banana, Peaches, Oranges, Strawberries and Melons etc.
Due to the Great Dane’s people-pleasing nature, they are relatively easy to train. These dogs are not food-driven and hence can be trained without using food and treats as rewards. However, please don’t be too harsh while training as they are quite a sensitive breed and may get easily confused.
Great Danes are exceptionally dedicated to their family, and if left alone, they may develop separation anxiety. You don’t want these dogs to exhibit destructive behaviour considering their enormous size.
Great Danes do need access to adequate space as they like to move around a lot. But if you can provide this dog with his daily dose of exercise, he can be easily accommodated in a 2-room set.
