welcome suzi-Q and mom!!!  enjoy the baby stage it wont last long!!

i have been feeding orijen 6 fish to ozzy for about a year now and his coat and health is amazing. my girl has been weaned and always on it. she also has the most amazing coat!!

orijen foods are all life stages. all formulas are quite close in analysis.  my newf breeder actually prefers the pupply or puppy large over the adult due to more taurine. 6 fish even better. the formulas can actually be switched around for change in flavor for the dog.  oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TUCKER!!!

i had to laugh when you mentioned the naughty newf stories. i bet it would be tame compared to a naughty lab thread!!  but having said that you do sound like your lifestyle would suite a lab more so than a newf. newf puppies in my opinion are just the cutest ever, but the  puppy stage is so short compared to the life of your pet, so its best to think long range than how cute a puppy is. best of luck in your search and i hope you find the best pet ever!!!

congrats!!!  they looks so great in their pics!!!

Ruffian would go into her kennel rather than wearing her panties, LOL.

i wish I had a suggestion for you though, perhaps a bathing suit, it would work sorta like a onesy.
now that is a very unique idea!!

i think you saying you are having trouble getting close to him says alot!! you have a big goofy newfy that seriously
NEEDS training.  i have honestly been there with my ozzy. it took me 3 year and many collars before i broke down and took a few classes and had him fitted with a prong.  WELL I had a BRAND NEW DOG!! i think a class could help you also, it did me. even just to learn how to be the one in charge.  you are getting some very good advice from everyone, best of luck!!

my thoughts, newfs are like no other dog!! but i am a little partial. they are so worth the wait!!  i am not a lab person but they are very high energy dogs.  i agree with others.  sit down and take a breath and really decide if you want a newf or are just wanting a pup of any kind. there are alot of breeders out there and it may take a little time to get a newf, but if that is what you mind was set on you may be disappointed with a lab.  best of luck with your search!!

i have to say i have been extremely lucky!! although ozzy now 4  was and still is very active for a newf he has really not wreaked anything. my little girl stevie 1, we have only had for 4 months did get into the toilet and newspapers when we first got her, now is extremely good. we can leave food out on the counter for hours and they will not touch it. i love to hear the stories though!! best of luck!!!LOL!

i believe that a landseer is a white dog with black markings, shere an irish spotted is black with white marking. or so i have been told.

persoannly if i had any allergy problems i would definatly switch to a grain free food. there are many that have single proteins. sometimes chicken is a problem also. i think you may find that fish as in food is different than adding fish oil to the food. it may be worth a try. potatoes being better than rice for allergies(i think of rice as a grain??) lots of lamb based food add taurine but i would check the labels. i have no allergy issues but feed both mine orijen and both have such amazing health skin and coats.

i have 2 newfs. one has a shorter coat but is amazingly think and so very shiny. my older boy oz does have more length to his especially in his feathers but it is no where as thick or glorious as his little sister. both eat the same but from different breeders?  i think genetics play a major part once you take into consideration diet. ozzys coat has improved 100% since feeding grain free though. mine almost never itch, is there something there maybe??
