Landseer: Personality, Health, Grooming
Country of Origin, History of the breed
Sir Edwin Henry Landseer
was a notable figure in 19th Century British
art. Landseer came to be the official name
for the breed of Newfoundland dogs that the
painter popularized in his paintings. The
origin of the Landseer stems back to Germany
and Switzerland. In the USA and Great Britain,
the Landseer is considered the same breed
as the Newfoundland.
However, the Fédération
Cynologique Internationale and people in some European
countries consider the Landseer as a breed totally
different from the Newfoundland. There is no appearance
of cross-breeding in Landseer’s dog; on the
contrary, he reveals all the characteristics of

A General Description of the Breed
The Landseer conveys the impression
of being a tall, powerful and well-balanced dog.
The white, wide muzzle is rather short and squared-off.
The small triangular ears are pendant. The small
eyes are dark brown. The nose is black. The feet
are webbed for better swimming. The tail hangs down.
The water-repellent long outer coat is flat, oily
and slightly wavy with a thick oily undercoat. Dogs
that live indoors, however, tend to lose their undercoats.
The top coat, with exception of
the head, is long, straight and dense, soft to the
touch. When brushed in the wrong way, it falls back
into place naturally. The main color of the coat
is a clear white with distinct black patches on
body and croup. Collar, chest, belly, legs and tail
are white. The head is black, with a white symmetrical
blaze. It has a slight roll in gait.
Male: 28 ½ -31 ½ inches (72-80 cm.)
Female: 26 ½-28 ½ inches (67-72 cm.).
Male: 130-150 pounds (59-68 kg)
Female: 100-120 pounds (45-54kg).
Temperament of the Breed
The Landseer possesses all the
qualities required to make a treasured pet. It is
of an extremely sweet disposition, courageous, intelligent,
patient, noble, calm, gentle, trustworthy, dignified
and peaceable. The Landseer is fiercely protective
of and devoted to its master and mild with guests
and other animals. Playful, sociable and loving,
specially with children, it makes a “natural
babysitter”. Makes decisions and acts quickly
and with admirable accuracy, specially when the
family is threatened. They may be slightly difficult
to train as their huge bodies move rather slowly.
They are very sensitive to the tone of their masters'
Better suited to outdoor or indoor lifestyle?
The Landseer is well suited to
apartment life. It craves for companionship and
gets terribly upset if left alone. They are relatively
inactive indoors and a small yard is sufficient
for them. They are sensitive to heat. So it's vital
to provide them with plenty of shade and cool water
in warm weather. These dogs prefer cool climates.
How active is the breed?
This breed prefers lazing around
the house and would be quite content to sleep away
for hours at a stretch. However, it's very important
to ensure that the dog gets its daily requirement
of exercise so that it doesn't get overweight. A
daily brisk walk should suffice. It also enjoys
playing, swimming and frolicking with its owner.
The coat of the Landseer is thick
and coarse, so daily brushing with a hard brush
is necessary. The undercoat is shed twice a year,
in the spring and fall. Frequent bathing will strip
away the coat's natural oils, so only dry shampoo
The Landseer is prone to hip dysplasia
(a malformed ball and socket in the hip joint) and
a hereditary heart disease called sub-aortic stenosis
(SAS). Breeders should have the puppy's hearts checked
by a veterinary cardiologist at 8-12 weeks of age.
