Be careful... That's where I started. Then began to seek out owners, followed by breeders, two years later, I'm in the pet store answering the multiple "what kind of dog is that? He's a what?... I don't mind it at all, just will not bring Reese to the store when I have a schedule to keep. He loves the attention too.

Added: My Leo breeder used to breed and own Goldens (seems many have a history with Goldens). Her definition of a Leo is an XXL Golden Retriever on Valium...

What a gorgeous pup Reese is. I love Leonbergers. There is a house on one of our walking routes that as 2 of them, a male and a female, massive, beautiful dogs.

Hope Bogey is having fun with his soon to be bigger, younger brother.

2 weeks since having Reese home. A few differences when compared to Goldens.

Leo's are very talkative. When happy, sad, alerting, confused, or playful. He always has something to say.

Water, get a drink and anything left in the bowl is meant to be played with. Never save your water for later... Someone will come refill it!

Lovers: Pick me up and carry me around (as long as you are physically capable), your Leo pup is happy to be on you as long as they are not over heating.

Playing: Is rather calm and clumsy as pups. Considering Reese's paw are the same size as Bogeys but 1/2 the weight I guess that is to be expected. He will run and hop some but nothing like the energy of a GR pup.

Mouthy: Reese will get mouthy with Bogey, but never with people (with the exception of hair), he will not mouth to hand play much, and when he does, it's extremely soft and cautious.

Horrible on leash first attempt to walk... Great on the second try and all since.

About to go get out the dremel and treats and see how he does with the nails.
