Extra large, or giant dogs, are the biggest good boys you can get! Any dog breed that weigh over 100 pounds when fully grown qualifies as a giant dog.
Giant dogs are quite docile indoors. If you entered a home with any of them around, you probably wouldn’t even realize where they were until you nearly trip over one! But when they want to stretch their legs, then hopefully you have a large enough field for them to run around in, because they need a lot of space.
The bigger a dog is, the greater the necessity that they are obedience trained. Trying to wrestle with a disobedient giant dog is a losing proposition. You could get seriously hurt, and if anything happens in public, others could get hurt too.
Unsurprisingly, these giant fur-balls can get really strong. They also have a monstrous appetite, and taking care of them is a significant responsibility. You do not get a giant dog on a whim; it must be something you prepare well in advance to get.
Unfortunately, giant dogs also have the shortest life span. It seems you can’t have too much of a good thing for long in this world. Excluding the two years as a puppy and two years as a senior, you can expect to have a large dog for only 3-5 years in their prime.
But these few short years can be some of the most loving and fun times of your life. Everything you love about dogs is only amplified in a bigger one, and the companionship they give you is unlike anything else. If you are prepared to take on this responsibility, then the next few years of your life will be unforgettable.
