The bigger the being, the more powerful the body, right? Provided that they’re healthy of course. The same goes for gentle giants, like Great Danes and English Mastiffs. I always hear that owners have the hardest time finding toys that their extra large dog either can’t tear to pieces or can’t tear to pieces easily.
I did some research and asked some owners what toys they get for their dogs. I got three types of responses:
I’m so excited about living with my first Great Dane! 37 days until I’m available to take a foster Dane (but who’s really counting?)
I need to get prepared, though. As I’ve mentioned before, there’s only little of Roxie’s stuff that I could use for a Dane and that’s only if the Dane is a puppy. I’m expecting to mostly get teenage or adult Great Danes so they’ll already be larger and more powerful than a puppy. Which means Roxie’s toys, leashes, collars, and bowls aren’t going to cut it.
So what do I need at the very least?

Right now, we are still paying off some credit card debt.
No, we don’t have credit card debt because we are irresponsible newlyweds. It’s because when we first got married, we had crappy, minimum wage jobs. But we had to still eat! So we lived on a budget (and continue to do so) so that we could live on as little as possible. Unfortunately, by the time we got better-paying jobs, we had racked up a few thousand dollars in debt.
We are happy to say that we are in the final stretch and almost 100% debt free!
If you look around the internet, there are countless lists of things you must have for your dog. “Make sure you have food, bowls, a collar, leash”.
But giant dogs are special (if you haven’t gathered already from the things I write around here) and have “special needs”. If you’re beginning to think about adopting a Great Dane or a Mastiff, read this list. It may open up your eyes to issues you haven’t though about before.
For example: how do you plan on picking up your tiny horse’s massive poops?
Read on, friends.
