Landseer Breed Maintenance
The Landseer sports a double-layer coat consisting of a soft, insulating undercoat protected by a harsher outer layer of short to medium-length fur. While the coat of a Landseer ECT dog is somewhat thinner than the coat of the Newfoundland, it still requires a significant time commitment to keep this canine’s coat clean and healthy. This breed does best with somewhat frequent bathing, typically a bath every four to eight weeks, and brushing should occur at least every other day in order to prevent any mats from forming and to remove any dirt and debris from the coat. This dog is also prone to shedding more heavily during the change of seasons and may require daily brushing during those times. Care of the teeth and nails is also a necessity; the teeth can be brushed a few times a week and the nails trimmed monthly.
