Newfoundland Grooming and Breed Care

Newfoundland Temperament

A sweet natured, calm, and loyal dog, the Newfoundland is an excellent choice for a family pet, suiting both inexperienced and experienced dog owners. These giant dogs are docile and mild manners, carrying themselves with dignity and offering plenty of love, devotion, and affection. This is a very intelligent and responsive breed, and training should not prove too difficult. The Newfoundland is a dog that is eager to please his owner, although males may be a little more stubborn than females. Too large to fare well as an apartment dog, this breed enjoys space in which to play and exercise, and should be provided with a large, secured, and safe area. He loves water, and will be happy to go for a swim at any time. Regular walks are recommended in order to help this gentle giant keep fit.

 

The Newfoundland is a very friendly and sociable breed, but some lines can be dominant or overly timid, and therefore early socialization is required. The Newfoundland thrives on affection and attention from his owners, and is not the dog for you if you do not have the time to commit to a pet. These dogs do drool a lot, and this is something to consider when thinking about taking on this breed. The Newfoundland gets along very well with children, and will also get along with other pets, although some can be aggressive with same sex dogs. This sweet natured and patient dog will also welcome strangers. However, he can still make an effective watchdog simply because of his bark and his size.

Newfoundland Appearance

The Newfoundland is a giant dog with a very robust and sturdy build, and a handsome face. These dogs have an alert and intelligent expression. His coat is coarse, dense, and flat, and has an oily feel, as it is water resistant. He also has distinctive webbed feet. The coloring of the Newfoundland is commonly black or white with black patches. Some may be brown or gray, but this is far less common. The weight of the Newfoundland is around 100-130 pounds for females, and around 125-150 pounds for males. The height of these dogs is around 26-28 inches for females, and 28-33 inches for males.

Newfoundland Grooming

Although the coat of the Newfoundland only needs to be brushed a couple of times a week for the most part, he will need to be brushed on a daily basis at times when he is shedding more heavily. This is a dog that sheds all year round, but in the spring and autumn he sheds profusely. Because of his heavy shedding he is not the best choice of allergy sufferers.

Newfoundland Health Problems and Life Expectancy

As with most other giant breeds, the life expectancy of the Newfoundland is far shorter than that of smaller dogs, and these dogs live to around ten years of age. There are a number of problems associated with this breed, and this includes bloat, SAS, entropion, thyroid problems, ectropion, OCD, HD, heart problems, allergies, skin conditions, and heatstroke in humid or hot conditions. The parents of the Newfoundland puppy should have OFA certificates.

Newfoundland History

The Newfoundland originates from Canada, and was developed to work with fishermen, as well as to help deliver lifelines in shipwreck emergencies. These dogs have been known to save drowning victims, and have become popular household pets.
