Leonberger

General Description

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.

Character and Temperament

 Leonbergers are calm and quiet dogs, but they are not lethargic.

Exercise

They are active dogs outside and require more exercise than just a walk

Grooming

These dogs require brushing and combing two times a week. They do not require trimming. They do not drool.

Origin

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.
