Do Great Danes Like Cats?
Thinking to adopt a Great Dane and need to know if Great Dane Dogs like cats or how do you introduce a Great Dane to a cat in the house?
Well, Great Dane Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of dog breeds that are good with cats.
There are dog individuals as well as there are feline individuals - yet what concerning those people who enjoy both? Can we have a cat and a dog in our household, or are they absolutely mortal opponents?
Rest assured, dogs and felines can become the best of friends, or at the very least learn to peacefully exist side-by-side. If you already have a pet cat in your home and are wanting to add a pet dog, choosing the right breed will certainly go a long way towards a harmonious relationship.
Specific breed groups are most likely to get along with cats than others. For instance, the Toy Group includes breeds that are caring and also sociable. They were bred to be friends and also lap warmers.
Members of the Sporting Group are friendly as well as outgoing. These happy-go-lucky pet dogs are delighted to make friends with any person they meet, including pet cats.
On the other hand, the perky Terriers were established to search and eliminate vermin. A fast-moving pet cat could set off those spirited predatory instincts. And also the sighthounds of the Hound Group are hardwired for a chase. No pet cat will appreciate being the target of that sort of attention.
Lastly, members of the Herding Group have a strong wish to herd anything that moves, including their owner and kids. Some cats could find this bothersome to endure.
Keep in mind that these are generalizations. The majority of dog breeds can live comfortably with a feline if they are trained well and socialized as young puppies.
