Landseers are large, strong and harmoniously structured dogs. Their legs, especially of dogs, are longer than those of the Newfoundland breed. They walk lightly and energetically on their muscular legs.

The Landseer is a dog with an outstanding temperament, good, courageous, generous and intelligent. It is also a patient dog, mild with guests, and obsequious with its master. He is noble, calm, gentle, loyal and trustworthy with a sweet temperament. Dignified and peaceable. Very devoted. Good and brave. Intelligent enough to act on his own when needed. Protective, but tends to place himself between the intruder and his family rather than bark or growl. Landseer's can recognize a dangerous situation and will generally act if the family is threatened.

Will do okay in an apartment if sufficiently exercised. They are relatively inactive indoors and a small yard is sufficient. They are sensitive to heat: provide them plenty of shade and cool water in warmer weather. These dogs prefer cool climates.

Newfoundland is not a welcoming island. Summers are short and stormy, and in the long and frosty winters, daylight lasts for only a few hours. The fearless and determined first settlers of the island, who may have been the Vikings, or French, Spanish, Dutch or English sailors who somehow managed to make it through to the cliffs on the edge of the island, stayed only for a short while. Eventually, it was a handful of Beothuk Indians who decided to settle on the island for good in the late-15th century, when the English claimed title to the island.
Prone to hip dysplasia. Do not let a Landseer get fat. Also prone to a hereditary heart disease called sub-aortic stenosis (SAS). Breeders should have puppy's hearts checked by a veterinary cardiologist at 8-12 weeks of age.
