  • Care

    The Landseer’s double coat is generally easy to maintain, and a once-weekly brush with a pin brush for the body and comb for the feathering, behind the ears, and the tail should be plenty. All dogs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, and the Landseer is no exception. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health.

    As with any dog, it’s important to monitor the amount of food and treats that you give your Landseer, especially since some dogs are prone to gaining weight as they age. Your veterinarian is always a good source to help provide you with appropriate nutrition and feeding guidelines.

  • Disorders

    Always visit a professional veterinarian if you believe your dog may have health issues.
