Newfoundlands usually have sweet temperaments, which make them perfect for families. However, you will also need to make sure your Newfoundland gets the exercise they need on a daily basis. Newfoundlands are intelligent dogs and are easily trained.
The Newfoundland is a large-sized dog that belongs to the working dog group. An adult female Newfoundland can weigh between 100 and 120 pounds, males 130 and 150. The average adult height of a Newfoundland ranges from 26 to 28 inches.
The Newfoundland is an active dog breed that requires daily exercise. Although they appear to be a calm easy-going dog, Newfoundlands also crave daily exercise and thrive most with owners who lead active lifestyles. Newfoundlands are strong dogs, making them well-suited for water rescue or guarding.
The Newfoundland is a medium-haired dog, which requires regular grooming. We recommend that you brush your Newfoundland dog at least once a week. However, please keep in mind that your Newfoundland puppy or dog will shed more from their undercoats in the spring and fall. During these periods, you might have to brush as much as once a day to keep the shedding under control.
