Tallest Dogs 2024: Here are the 12 loftiest breeds of adorable dog - and their average heights ๐Ÿ•

With demand for dog continuing to rocket in the aftermath of the pandemic, here are the breeds to choose if you want a pet that will tower over most other canines.

If youโ€™ve been thinking about getting a new dog then youโ€™re not alone โ€“ Kennel Club figures show that the number of people looking for puppies has surged to record levels in recent years.

But with 221 different breeds of pedigree dog to choose from, thereโ€™s plenty of thinking to do before you select your familyโ€™s latest four-legged addition โ€“ whether you want a hypoallergenic dog, family-friendly dog, or crossbreed.

Thereโ€™s even academic guidance to seek out, with Psychologist Stanley Corenโ€™s book โ€˜The Intelligence of Dogsโ€™ ranking breeds by instincts, obedience, and the ability to adapt.

Of course, dogs come in all shapes and sizes, so the amount of room you have at your disposal and the amount of time you have to exercise your pet will be just two of the factors to take into concern when youโ€™re thinking about how big โ€“ or small โ€“ a dog to get.

These are the 12 tallest dogs in the world, according to the American Kennel Club.
