Large Dog Breeds
Large dog breeds have a height ranging from approximately 50 to 69 cm (18 to 27 inches) at the withers.

Large breed puppies grow faster than medium or small-sized dogs in the first months of their life. The way they are fed and the quality of their diet are of the utmost importance to ensure correct bone development. See also: Giant dog breeds

Large dog breeds include police dogs, guard dogs, flock guards, hunting dogs, hounds and two terriers.
