In general, representatives of this breed are a little phlegmatic. Sometimes it seems that the patience of an animal is limitless, especially when you observe with what heroism it withstands annoying childish molestation and leprosy. Your heirs can turn the house upside down and arrange protracted concerts, from which eardrums burst – all this chaos will not cause the dog the slightest discomfort. However, such a universal calm is demonstrated only in a narrow family circle. Although Leonberger does not feel hostility towards strangers, he is unlikely to climb into friendship with them.
Leonberger’s relationships with other animals are quite good. They do not spoil the life of cats and do not chase garbage rats with such zeal, as if their whole life depends on this prey. As for other dogs, shaggy giants are unlikely to provoke someone to a fight. On the other hand, a lot depends on the level of education of the pet. However, even the most obedient and meek “Leon”, on occasion, will easily repulse a presumptuous provocateur.
Leonberger needs constant contact with people, although it is difficult to guess from the appearance of the dog. Sometimes it seems that these fluffy “lumps” only know what to withdraw into themselves and indulge in passive contemplation of what is happening around them. Don’t believe this misleading impression: Leonberger is an extremely sociable and sociable guy who will gladly trade an afternoon rest on a mattress for your company.
