Native American Newfie Breed Maintenance
There is not much information available regarding the maintenance of the Native American Newfie, though we can look at the breeds that make up the hybrid to get an idea of the maintenance requirements. The Native American Indian Dog will not require much maintenance despite his fluffy coat. Occasional brushing will be important; during times of heavier shedding brushing will need to occur more often. The Native American Indian Dog will rarely require a bath and is considered hypoallergenic. The Newfoundland will require brushing several times per week with a hard brush in order to avoid having his fur become matted. The Newfoundland is a heavy shedder, particularly during the spring. It is recommended that the Newfoundland not be bathed often so that the natural oils of his coat are not removed. When drinking the breed tends to be messy and will drool quite a bit; having a towel handy to wipe him up will be helpful. The parent breeds will create offspring with moderate coat care needs; brushing on a weekly basis and the use of a shedding tool will make the process easier.
