The Leonberger is a heroic dog, born lifeguard, best friend, and companion. It is difficult to find a pet endowed with as many positive qualities as this huge furry dog.
1 Noble and powerful, a good Leonberger is calm and steady, yet bolder and more athletic than most giant breeds.
2 The Leonberger enjoys swimming, tracking, agility, therapy work, pulling a cart or sled, and weight pulling -- all productive outlets for his energy.
3 The breed was bred in the name of the glory of the city of Leonberg, on the coat of arms of which a lion was depicted.
