Leonbergers have a medium to long, water-resistant, double coat on the body and short fine hair on the muzzle and front of limbs. The outer coat is medium-soft to coarse and lies flat. It is straight, with some generalized wave permitted. Mature males carry a mane, which extends over neck and chest.
Leonbergers are calm and quiet dogs, but they are not lethargic.
They are active dogs outside and require more exercise than just a walk
These dogs require brushing and combing two times a week. They do not require trimming. They do not drool.
The Leonberger is a giant dog breed, whose name derives from the city of Leonberg in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. According to legend, the Leonberger was ostensibly bred as a "symbolic dog" that would mimic the lion in the town coat of arms.
