Newfoundland - Guide to Newfoundlands

Description: Newfoundlands are strong, heavy coated, large working dogs well known for their sweet and gentle disposition. Most agree the breed originated in Newfoundland, although its ancestry is up for debate. Some believe he descended from the Great Pyrenees or perhaps from dogs indigenous to the island and big black Viking bear dogs. It's also said the Newfoundland may be related to the Labrador Retriever.

The Newfoundland is a true working dog. His tasks include pulling nets for fishermen and hauling loads as a pack horse. They were and still are used as a lifeguard because of their size, great strength, lung capacity and excellent swimming ability.

Height: The average height for an adult Newfoundland male is 28 inches (71.1 cm) and the average height for an adult female is 26 inches (66 cm)

Newfoundlands are obedient, devoted and eager to please its master. They are courageous and will protect their family. All those who pose no threat to the family are warmly welcomed by a Newfoundland. Obedience training should be introduced early - two months of age is considered ideal. Training should be done in a calm, confident, consistent and positive manner. Newfoundlands are very intelligent. This breed loves to be outdoors and love to swim (have webbed feet). Newfoundlands are active and enjoy to frolic and take daily walks.

Health Concerns: Newfoundlands are prone to hip / elbow dysplasia and hereditary heart disease called sub-aortic stenosis (SAS) which can cause sudden death at a yo...
