The world’s tallest living dog is a great dane named Freddy who lives in Essex, UK with his owner, Claire Stoneman, and his sister, Fleur. This humongous pup stands approximately 3’4.75 tall on all fours, but is 7’6 on his hind legs!

That’s about the same height as some of the tallest NBA basketball players! He was measured in Leigh-on-Sea by the Guiness Book of World Records in 2016, and has held the title ever since. 

His predecessor, Zeus (also a great dane), was actually taller than Freddy by about four inches, putting him at 3’8 on all fours and 7’3 on his hind legs making Zeus the tallest dog ever recorded. Zeus lived in Ostego, Michigan with his owner, Denise Doorlag and her family. He was measured on October 4, 2011 and held the world record from 2012-2013.

We at DoggieLawn know that no matter if you’re the tallest dog ever recorded or the smallest, every pup should have an indoor dog potty solution- just in case. Having the world’s biggest dog means many big bathroom breaks and sometimes pee pads just won’t cut it- especially in the early stages of housebreaking

Never fear, we’ve got a pet potty solution for your gargantuan canine! Our XL DoggieLawn is made from real grass grown on a farm in the Sunshine state and measures a whopping 48” x 24”, the perfect size for your world record-breaking pooch.

When you choose DoggieLawn as your big puppy’s indoor pet potty, it will protect your home from even bigger messes like permanently stained and smelly floors because fresh grass acts as a natural odor neutralizer! Even better, our dog grass is multi-use, low maintenance, and biodegradable- unlike fake grass or wee wee pads. 

We know that big dogs are a lot of work, so let us take a load off your hands so you can spend more quality time with your pup and less time cleaning up messes.
