Newfoundlands Today The Newfoundland, known as the gentle giant of the dog world, combines a large, powerful physique with a mild, docile character. Originally used by fishermen to tow out heavy nets, the Newfie is as much at home in the water as on land, and there are tales of brave Newfoundlands rescuing survivors from shipwrecks. The breed was also used for draught work, and still performs this task in Newfoundland and Labrador. In this highly comprehensive Book of the Breed, the authors examine the origins of the breed and its development as a highly-prized working dog. The Breed Standard is analyzed in detail, and there is advice on training the show dog, the working dog, and the companion dog. Diet, exercise and grooming requirements are outlined, and there is guidance on breeding Newfoundlands, including breeding for the brown and the Landseer colours. Illustrated with more than 150 top-quality colour and black-and-white photographs.
