Ten Annoying Problems for Big Dogs You Didn’t Know They Have

Some people hate being small, but I am tall 6ft 3in and let me tell you it is no walk in the park! I am constantly bumping my head into stuff, finding clothes that fit is a real nightmare and whenever a lightbulb needs changing I am the one who has to do it! It seems that the life of a big dog like Great Danes is also rather complicated…

10 – Wolfhounds hate confrontation and are often treated badly by other family pets.

Irish Wolfhound: Most bigger breeds are more friendly than smaller ones, and while the wolfhound might have a commanding appearance it is naturally one of the friendliest and therefore best family pets to own. But as will all animals it is all in the up-brining.

9 – Just because they have “Deer” in their names doesn’t mean they rein!

Scottish Deerhound: This massive breed was bred to hunt down and take down fully grown stags in the Scottish highlands, but has since gone on to become a lovable, friendly breed. But be warned, their coats need a lot of looking after during the winter months.

8 – Paddling time is never fun time for Great Danes

Great Dane: Often called “The king of dogs” these are gentle natured kings, and one of the tallest dog breeds in the World. It was originally bred to hunt boar but is now considered one of the tamest breeds you can have. The only thing to be aware of is their rather powerful tail that can literally feel like you have been whipped and even leaves bruises!

7 – No matter how hard they try Mastiff don’t look good poolside!

Neapolitan Mastiff: This is the ultimate big dog breed. Big in size, build, height and personality, you would run the other way if you saw it alone in the woods. Most notable is their massive head which can often put a lot of people off stroking it, let alone owning one.

6 – Sadly for them Saint Bernard’s always look silly when they are upside down.

Saint Bernard: This is one of the best working dogs in the World and they are sill bred and used to rescue people who have become lost in the Alps. While it is a family friendly breed it is also very protective of other animals in its pack and yes that includes the family cat!

5 – When you have more than 1  Russian Terrier it is often hard to know who is who!

Black Russian Terrier: It might look like a sloppy, loving animal but it is often not. Bred in the Soviet Union to be a guard dog it has the attack style of a Rottweiler only it is a much bigger animal. But I don’t care what people say, the breed is irrelevant to how nasty or loving the animal is, it is all about how you raise them. (But I am no expert)

4 – For the Leonberger play time often ends up as messy time!

Leonberger: Every dog had his or her own personality, but these large Saint Bernard style animals are often considered to be one of the most inquisitive breeds of dog. Often breaking down doors and anything in their way just to get to something they can smell!

3 – The problem with the Newfoundlands fur is that it is often home to nasty ticks!

Newfoundland: This is the fishmens dog. Originally used to haul in the nets for fishermen they have the ability to swim very long distances while pulling a heavy load. But without a fishing job in site, they are often seen in the news because they seem to have a built in response system to people drowning and save several people each and every year!

2 – When a large dog like a Great Pyrenees hugs you, you are always suspicious of it.

Great Pyrenees: These are often thought to be the must beautiful of all the large dog breeds. Wit a very thick and beautiful white coat they feel like silk in the hand and are happy enough to let anyone smooth them, but are considered rather high maintenance.

Large dog doesn’t want to move

1 –  When a large dog like a Mastiff doesn’t want to move, not a lot will make it!

Tibetan Mastiff: With a large head and thick coat, it is often seen dressed up at parties as a lion because it also has a very thick lions mane. They are more of a guardian dog than a family one, but do commit to a single owner and often can’t be separated from them.
