Great Dane Crate Size Comparison Chart
The chart below shows the average dimensions of various breeds of dogs. You will see that Great Danes are not quite as big as other breeds.
However, they are still large enough to fit comfortably into most crates and travel cages. They do have their own advantages over other breeds when it comes to crate sizes and travel cage sizes. Here’s why:
They’re strong! They’re tough!
And they don’t need much space at all!
Their thick fur keeps them warm even in cold weather.
They’re naturally curious and friendly with strangers. They love people!
(Well, some of them do) So they’ll want to explore every corner of your home or office.
If you ever get bored with one of these dogs, just take him out to play and then put him back inside the crate again! That’s what they’re there for after all!
When you first bring a new puppy home, he may seem very timid and shy. But once he gets used to life outside the house, he’ll become outgoing and social.
Great Danes are known for being loyal companions. If you ever decide to sell your dog, they’ll always stay behind to make sure no one takes away your beloved pet!
Why Choose A Great Dane Crate?
Let’s talk about the pros and cons of having a Great Dane travel crate. There are many benefits to using these crates:
They’re perfect for bringing your pet with you on long road trips. They can even double up as a bed for your pet if you run out of space in the back seat!
These crates are great for dog shows, so your dog will have its own “spot” to sleep in if they become tired.
Great Dane crates are the perfect size to keep around the house. If your dog makes a mess, you can quickly put them inside while you clean up!
If you ever need to board your pet, most kennels will have no problem accepting larger dogs if they are kept in their crates during the stay. These crates will also help your pet feel safe in an unfamiliar place.
Once your dog gets bigger, it might be too large for most standard crate sizes. A crate like this will allow your pet to continue feeling comfortable and secure.
There are a few minor downsides to using these crates:
You’ll need to buy a larger car if you want to transport your pet inside one of these crates. (
But that’s okay, right?
No more dog hairs in your car! Yay!)
Great Danes are very tall, so they may be able to peek their heads over the top of the crate. This means you can’t keep these crates in your bedroom if you share a wall with your neighbors!
(Or else they’ll call the police every time they hear strange noises coming from your house!)
Some airlines will not allow you to transport your dog on the plane unless it is inside one of these crates. However, it is not recommended to fly with a pet inside one of these crates because there is a chance that they could become loose or damaged during the flight.
In other words, don’t blame us if something goes wrong!
Some dogs don’t like being restricted in small spaces, even if it is for their own safety. Try introducing the crate slowly and make it a fun place to be!
