The Leonberger, originally from Germany, is a breed that was bred by the mating of St. Bernard, Newfoundland, and Pyrenean Mastiff. This dog is of a luxurious kind, tall, muscular and strong. This wise and sensitive dog with a kind expression is a good rescuer, with its webbed toes and excellent swimming ability.
The breed is loyal, intelligent, easy to train, and very affectionate towards children. This is a great family dog and can also be a great working farm dog. Leonberger is very fond of water.
In general, when Leonberger finds itself in a new environment, due to fear and intense tension, it is very afraid of any loud noises. Therefore, it is best to immediately place the dog in the kennel or close it in the room so that it goes through the adaptation period.
