Large Dogs for Adoption
They’re big, they’re dashing and they’re ready to spread some love. While large dog breed puppies for adoption begin as cute little pups, don’t be fooled. Give these beauts some time to mature and they’ll soon be a serious hunk of canine. Large dog breeds weigh anywhere from 50 – 100 pounds and stand 23-28 inches tall at the shoulder.
Large dog breeds include Golden Retrievers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Cane Corsos, Collies, and more. While many large canines can appear fierce and intimidating at first glance, many are actually calm and gentle inside. Of course like any other canine size, the variety is vast when comparing large dog breed personalities, colors, coat types and exercise needs. With proper training, there’s anything from adventurous, loyal, and protective, to sweet, calm, and docile.
Large Dog Breed Training
Begin training the first day your canine pal is home. Unless properly trained, large dog breeds can grow into obnoxious and aggressive canine monsters. Keep training and exercise fun with hikes through the wood, a jog through the park, or a game of fetch in the back yard. Always be consistent, firm, and kind when training your growing canine. In addition, socialize your puppy often to new sights, strange smells, and unfamiliar sounds. You could also invite friends over, meet the neighbors or visit an outdoor shopping mall to aid good puppy socialization.
While large dog breeds grow massive in size, they can be fragile inside. As a result, large dogs typically live fewer years than their smaller canine cousins.
Regardless, welcome a large dog breed home and prepare for heaps of smiles, lots of laughs, and countless doggy memories.
