If visual is your game, or you’re going for a specific look, then enjoy scrolling through the following list of dog breeds with pictures.

Big Dog Breeds

They act big, they think big, and they love even bigger.  Big dog breeds live true to their name.  They are a big hunk of canine who require lots of exercise and mental activity.  While their size alone is often sufficient to ward off unfriendly strangers, you can count on many big canines to protect with their lives.

 

Find your own huge dog breed.

 

Thanks to their size, big dog breeds require lots of space.  Think big dinner bowls, big dog collars, big spaces to roam, and big cozy beds.

To avoid obnoxious big dog behaviors, be sure to provide large canines with frequent exercise.  Whether it’s a game of fetch in the backyard, a walk through the park, or a hike through the woods, exercise is a must for the well-mannered canine hunk.

With proper training and exercise, these beautiful canines can typically make their dwelling nearly anywhere.  They are quick to adapt and sure to love big on those considered dear.
