Great Danes usually get Canine acne when they are young like mine did. They also bloat if you let them run around after dinner, so it's best to wait an hour before letting them run loose. And then the normal one for most dogs is hip dysplasia, but if neither of the parents had it, then the puppies most likely won't get it either.

Great Danes are prone to hip dysplasia, bloat, heart disease, tumors, and tail injuries. Always make sure to wait at least an hour after it eats before vigorous exercise.

Gastric Torsion is a health concern for any large breed dog. My vet said it is better for them to eat throughout the day and not to gorge itself in fewer feedings. I lost a female Great Dane at 4 1/2 years to torsion which was strange that it happened in the middle of the night. It usually happens after the eat and are very active. I will try to be more careful with my new 12 week Dane puppy.
