As your puppy’s breeders, we are here for you throughout your puppy’s lifetime. We strive to present physically and mentally sound Leonbergers. To insure a wonderful relationship for you and your pup, we ask that you follow these requirements:
Come to Ohio to receive your puppy. We do not ship pups by cargo and wish to meet each owner personally. If you are flying, check that your airline will allow the puppy in a Sherpa bag in the cabin with you. We are located near both Akron-Canton and Cleveland Hopkins airports.
A fenced yard is recommended as Leonbergers need room to stretch out and run a bit each day. Long walks will not satisfy their need to exercise growing muscles. Please monitor their activity, especially with other dogs or children, to prevent injury.
Puppy socialization began with a variety of people and children at our home. The pups are house raised among normal household noise. You must continue to socialize your pup away from your home for at least a year. A good rule is a new experience each day. Expose him/her to a variety of sights and sounds that he will have in his every day adult life.
You must enroll your Leo in an obedience training program within the first months of ownership. Do not wait until he’s tipping the scales at 80 pounds. Puppy Kindergartens are good socializing experiences, but do not qualify as an obedience program. You are encouraged to continue your dog’s education beyond one session. Leonbergers grow quickly, so it is important to have your pup well socialized and under your control.
