The Poop Scoop on Large Dogs: Top 5 Dog Breeds with the Biggest Backyard Surprises

Ahoy, fellow dog enthusiasts! Today, we venture into an often overlooked, yet undeniably fascinating topic: the monumental mounds left behind by our big doggies. If you’ve ever wondered, which colossal canine leaves the most colossal… contributions, you’re in for a treat (though perhaps not the edible kind…)

  1. The Saint Bernard: Snowy Mountains of… Poop?
    Size Rating: 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

Historically rescuing folks stranded in the Swiss Alps, Saint Bernards bring us more than just a barrel of brandy around their necks. These gentle giants, weighing up to 180 lbs., unsurprisingly leave behind sizable souvenirs. Perfect for those who believe bigger is indeed better!

  1. The Great Dane: Grandeur in Every Way
    Size Rating: 🐾🐾🐾🐾

Often dubbed the “Apollo of Dogs,” Great Danes tower over most of their canine counterparts. These lanky lovelies, although not as hefty as a Saint Bernard, still manage to deposit dung that’s sure to make you double-take.

  1. The Mastiff: Might and Mounds
    Size Rating: 🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

English, Tibetan, or Bullmastiffs, they all share the distinct honor of being heavyweights in the dog world. Weighing anywhere from 100 to 230 lbs., these dogs can certainly rival the Saint Bernard’s backyard bounty.

  1. Newfoundland: From the Sea to Your Lawn
    Size Rating: 🐾🐾🐾🐾

While known for their water rescue capabilities, Newfoundlands bring more than just wet fur into your home. Their hearty diets to support their large frames also lead to a hearty helping of… well, you know.

  1. Irish Wolfhound: Poop with a Touch of Elegance
    Size Rating: 🐾🐾🐾🐾

Don’t let their regal and wiry appearance fool you. Irish Wolfhounds are gentle giants with roots dating back to antiquity. They can create yard sculptures that might make you consider erecting a “Do Not Touch” sign.

  1. Bonus: The Alaskan Malamute & Siberian Husky
    Size Rating: 🐾🐾🐾

While not quite as big as the aforementioned breeds, these sledding sensations eat a protein-rich diet to fuel their active lifestyles. That translates to poop piles that pack a punch, outdoing some dogs of similar size.

While it’s a playful and slightly cheeky comparison, the size and frequency of your dog’s waste can be an indicator of their overall health. Changes in their “output” can be a sign of dietary issues or other health concerns. Always consult with your veterinarian about what’s “normal” for your specific breed.

Remember, owning a big dog comes with big responsibilities – and that includes managing their rather impressive amount of waste. If you are looking for someone to pawn off that responsibility on, sign up for your first pet removal service today!
