Getting A Newfoundland Dog

newfoundland dogI’m a dog person. I grew up with dogs and had one as an adult, and now that I have an established family, I want one: I miss having a dog around.

I’m set on getting a Newfoundland Dog. I never had a Newfoundland Dog but I’ve always wanted one: they’re big, gentle, intelligent creatures that will knock you over when they show their affection.

Here are the steps I’m doing to look into getting a Newfoundland dog:

  • Find out how much Newfoundland dog breeders charge.
  • Find and research local Newfoundland dog breeders.
  • See if there are any local Newfoundland dog rescue centers, including checking the SPCA.
  • Visit Newfoundland dog breeders in the relative area (New Brunsiwick, Nova Scotia, PEI, and Quebec. Yes, I’m willing to travel to other provinces).
  • Find out the waiting time for a pup from the breeder.
  • Get a Newfoundland puppy.
  • Train the puppy.

I already know a lot about the breed; I’ve been researching this for years.

I’ll be posting my progress, updating this post with links to the new posts. The first step being looking into how much they cost.

    • Yes, they shed buckets, but they don’t lose single hairs. The tend to lose big chucks of fur, and they don’t do it all year. If you’re someplace warm, it’s probably a good idea to shear them when it gets hot. That’s what we do- but only if they get really uncomfortably hot or if their coat gets very matted.
      We have two of them at the moment, they’re really terrific dogs. We don’t keep them as indoor dogs, because they’re gigantic, so they have a separate shed.

  2. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
