Giant dog breeds

When it comes to dogs, do you firmly believe in “the bigger, the better”? Some of our largest dog breeds certainly have the biggest hearts and friendliest personalities. As there are no universally agreed-upon criteria for categorising a dog breed as “giant”, we’ve selected those with significantly greater height, weight and/or body structure than most dogs!

To make it easy for you, we have put together a list of the most popular giant dog breeds in Australia. Learn more about their history, temperament, common breed diseases and conditions and lots of other interesting facts to guide you to choose the right giant-sized dog for you and your family!
