If you have enough space to hold a large dog that is as smart as cuddly, Newfoundland is a great choice.



Newfoundland is massive and powerful dog, but very gentle in nature. They are calm, sociable, generous, intelligent and brave. They are also very affectionate to their master and learn very quickly, without too much effort. Never reacts nervously.

They are very attached to their owner and the house and they find it difficult changing owners. They love children and are extremely gentle with them. Newfoundland likes farm animals and is friendly towards them and often invites them to play.


Taking into account their gentle nature, Newfoundland are quite sensitive and therefore training should not be aggressive, but easy. Never yell at him or punish him, as this will not achieve anything. These dogs react on a positive incentive, since they love to indulgeits owner, but you must have a firm stand.

Newfoundland can be trained as a professional rescue dog, especially in water, or use for therapeutic purposes.
