One of the most popular Giant breeds in the whole world, the Great Dane is truly an awe-inspiring canine breed. Standing tall at an average height of 28-34 inches (at the whither), this extra-large dog is widely loved not only for his built or strength but he's most admired for his kind and gentle personality. Yes, that's right, this dog may appear to be a bit intimidating but he's far from a ferocious animal. Danes are extremely friendly and affectionate in nature and they are awesome with not only their human parents, but with smaller kids, other animals (dogs and cats), and even strangers or new people.

In India, the demand for Great Danes is on a continuous rise for many years now. People are realizing that this pooch can be a great addition to their homes. Some might say that Danes are too big in size, but they are fairly adaptable in nature and they are decently apartment-friendly as well. They have an above average tolerance to hot weather conditions too which means they can thrive in a country like India that is known for its high temperatures and sunny weather. But one thing which may not be in the favor of Danes is that they are a bit pricey to both bring home and then maintain properly. But if that’s not an issue, then these pooches are known to make excellent pets for most people out there.

Given below is the average price list of the Great Dane puppies which are available in India in various variations.

  • Great Dane Puppy price (Basic): ₹30,000 to ₹45,000
  • Great Dane Puppy price (KCI registered): ₹45,000 to ₹60,000
  • Great Dane Puppy price (Show Quality): ₹60,000 to ₹1,00,000

Now if you want to get this giant dog from a breeder, then you should only try to get it from a trusted and reputed breeder. Many breeders in India are just looking to earn some extra bucks and they don’t care that much about the overall quality of the pup and are just selling the canines at unreasonable prices. But, contrary to that, there are some breeders who will not only provide you a fit and healthy pooch but will also share important information and details with you regarding the pup that you are interested in, like any health-related concerns and information about its sire and dam et cetera. Hence, it is very important for both the pup and its soon-to-be human parent that one should get the dog that s/he desires only from a trustworthy source.

Factors Affecting the Great Dane Price in India

Now there are various factors that can affect the original Great Dane price in India. These factors are as follows:


There are three different price categories for a Great Dane dog (in India): Basic, KCI Registered and Show Quality.

  • Basic category includes all those dogs and puppies that are not registered to any kennel club including KCI. A basic Great Dane puppy can cost anywhere around ₹30,000.
  • KCI is short for Kennel Club of India and if a dog belongs to KCI Registered category, then it means you will get a canine whose quality is up to the mark. You will also be able to participate in KCI dog shows if your canine is registered and also you will get a KCI registration certificate.
  • A Show Quality dog means that the canine is closest to the ideal as mentioned in the Breed Standards. If you are not planning to participate in dog shows with your pooch, then it does not matter all that much whether you buy a Show Quality dog or a normal Pet Quality one.

Physical Attributes and Characteristics

As Great Danes are available in quite a few colors and patterns, the average Great Dane dog price can easily get influenced due to these physical attributes. The most common colors (& patterns) in which a Great Dane is found are Black, Brindle, Fawn, Harlequin, Mantle, Merle, Black & White et cetera and based on the rarity of these colors, the Great Dane price can get affected.

Age & Gender

Young dogs or puppies are generally sold at a higher price as compared to older or fully grown pooches. Also, female canines, sometimes, cost a bit less when compared to their male counterparts. And this is how age and gender of a dog influence its overall cost.

Pure or Mix Breed

The cost of a purebred Great Dane is higher than the mixed-breed as there are lesser chances for a purebred puppy to develop hereditary health problems as compared to the one that is mixed-breed.

Availability and Location

A canine that is bought from a nearby breeder will probably cost a bit less as compared to if the same dog is purchased from a breeder that is situated at a far-away location. This is due to the addition of extra charges (shipping, traveling etc.) into the original price of the pooch.

Also, breeds that are a bit rare and are not that easily available in a region will cost a bit more as compared to those breeds that have an awesome availability. Great Danes have a mediocre availability in India, hence their price is also a bit high as compared to those breeds which are very easily available such as Labradors and Golden Retrievers.

Reputed Breeder

It is also a well-known fact that those breeders who are reputed and famous in a particular region are known to sell dogs and other animals at a bit of higher price as compared to those breeders who are not so popular and well-known like them. This again affects the overall price of a dog in that region.

Miscellaneous Factors

  • Champion Bloodline: If a dog belongs to a champion bloodline, meaning any of its predecessors (forefathers) were given the title of Champion in an official dog event, then its price can also go fairly high.
  • Microchip: The price of a dog can also increase if it has been microchipped by the KCI. The extremely small pet microchip helps in providing a permanent ID for your pet.
