  • He originated on the island of Newfoundland, Canada
  • He was originally used by fisherman to catch fish that escaped from the net, and then as a retriever used for hunting

Personality and Behavior

  • He's kind, even-tempered, friendly, and gentle
  • He's boisterous when young
  • He's highly intelligent and learns things very quickly!
  • He loves to participate in all family activities making him the perfect family dog
  • He's very eager to please you

  • He loves to swim
  • He's excellent with children
  • He isn't noisy but will occasionally bark

Training

  • He's one of the easiest of all breeds to train because he learns so quickly. (There's only a few of these super-fast learning breeds--and he's one of them!)

Shedding

  • He sheds quite a bit of hair. You'll find some hair stuck to your clothes, couch and carpets.

Grooming / Maintenance

  • His short coat only needs to be brushed occasionally. However, because it sheds you may find yourself brushing it once a week, or more, to minimize the hair in your home (what you remove with a brush doesn't end up on the couch!).
