Description

About the Breed

The Newfoundland is an enormous, powerful working dog with heavy bones and dignified bearing. The Newfie, a sweet and gentle companion, is well-known for being a loyal and patient ‘nanny dog’ for children.
The Newfoundland head is large and majestic. Its expression is soft and heartfelt. The outer coat is coarse and flat. The outer jacket is a combination of black and brown colours. According to the Newfie breed standard, a sweet temperament is the essential characteristic of the breed. Their love for children is a sign of the Newfoundland sterling character. They are gentle and trusting, and they respond well to gentle guidance. This noble breed is one of the giant dogs in the world, so it’s not easy to get a pet that can outweigh you.

Health

Responsible breeders ensure that their stocks are checked for conditions like elbow and hip dysplasias, heart disease, cystinuria, and cardiac disease. These can lead to stones in the urinary tract. Like all dogs with drop ears, Newfs’ ears should be examined regularly for signs and symptoms of infection.

Grooming

A Newfoundland’s thick coat demands that it be brushed at least once per week. Thorough brushing can remove dead hair with a slicker and long-toothed brush. This will prevent the formation of mats. These sessions will be repeated daily during shedding season, which usually occurs twice per year. However, spayed and neutered Newfs shed all year and may need to be brushed several times per week. Overly long nails can cause pain and structural problems in all breeds.

Training

The Newfoundland dog is intelligent, outgoing, curious, and curious. It is never shy, timid, skittish or aggressive. Every Newfoundland puppy needs to be able to communicate with humans every day. Puppy training classes and early socialization are essential to help your Newfoundland become a well-adjusted and well-mannered pet. Water training should begin at the age of four months for puppies who will be introduced to water. They are easy to train and eager to please. They are affectionate and trusting and will respond to gentle guidance. However, they won’t take harsh corrections or training methods.

Nutrition

With your veterinarian’s approval, high-quality dog food should be available for Newfoundland, whether commercially produced or homemade. Any dog’s age should be considered. Some dogs can become overweight quickly, so be aware of your dog’s calorie intake and weight. Although treats can be a valuable aid in training, too many treats can lead to obesity. Find out which foods are safe for dogs and which ones are not. If you have concerns about your dog’s diet or weight, talk to your vet. Bloat is a potentially life-threatening condition in which the stomach twists and distorts. Experts aren’t sure what causes bloat, but they know that small, frequent meals and moderate exercise can help to reduce it.
