Great Danes typically have a purchase price of $800. Although they’re big dogs, these gentle giants are relatively easy to groom, with average costs totaling $48.

These dogs are also predisposed to myriad pricey health concerns, such as stomach conditions and even cardiomyopathy, giving them a shorter expected life span of 7 to 10 years. This also makes Great Danes one of the most expensive dog breeds to own—average health costs can run to $7,100 and beyond.
