More details about the Landseer

Landseer: Origins and history

Developed in the north of Canada, the Landseer is an off-shoot of the Newfoundland, and probably has bits of St. Bernard, English Mastiff, and Great Pyrenees about her as well as the extinct, indigenous Newfoundland dog, the St. John’s. She is named for Sir Edwin Landseer, who painted her in 1838 (which is to say he made a portrait of her, not that he’s the one that added the white spots to her coat).

FCI classification of the Landseer

  • Group 2 - Pinscher and Schnauzer - Molossoid and Swiss Mountain and Cattledogs

  • Section 2 : Molossian type

Training a Landseer

Although she is very kind and affectionate, she has a very strong temperament that sometimes makes education complicated, especially if too brutal and inappropriate methods are used.

Landseer: Purchase price

We do not have enough data to set and average price, but you can expect to pay upwards of £1000 for a well-bred puppy. Looking after a dog of this size typically costs between £140 and £220 a month, including food, medical/insurance, and incidental expenses.
