Landseer Newfoundlands

The Special 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. 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 soft, dense, and can have 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 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. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1886.

Neurological Stimulation of Pups

We implement the program 3 days after birth. The process requires handling the puppies one at a time while performing a series of five exercises, none of which occur naturally during the early period of life. By doing this, the Newfy pups benefit in the following ways:

1.     Improved cardio vascular performance (heart rate)

2.     Stronger heart beats

3.     Stronger adrenal glands

4.     More tolerance to stress and

5.     Greater resistance to disease.  

In tests of learning, stimulated pups were found to be more active and were more exploratory than their non-stimulated littermates over which they were dominant in competitive situations.

Secondary effects were also noted regarding test performance. In simple problem-solving tests using detours in a maze, the non-stimulated pups became extremely aroused, whined a great deal, and made many errors.

Their stimulated littermates were less disturbed or upset by test conditions, and when comparisons were made, the stimulated littermates were calmer in the test environment, made fewer errors and were only occasionally distressed.

I would like to thank Terri and Brad for providing our family with such a wonderful Bernese Mountain Dog pup. From our first email to tour meeting at the time of delivery, everything went perfectly. Terri picked out the pup I had described to her! He's such a wonderful addition to our family. Thank you again for raising him in the right way right from birth! Sue Hodson, IN

My experience with Terri and Brad was nothing less than great! Terri was always there ready to answer any questions, and I had many. My husband and I drove to KY to pick up our new puppy. All the puppies were in great shape and had been raised with lots of love. I would highly recommend Terri and Brad, she breeds these beautiful dogs because she loves them and to me, that's what a good breeder is all about. Trish Green, OH

I have many more references if needed.
