Leonbergers are generally healthy dogs, but they’re susceptible to hip dysplasia and eye disease. If it’s possible, find out about the health of your pup’s parents. Leos also have very healthy appetites and are prone to weight gain.
Their double coats require at least a weekly brushing, but daily brushing will keep their shedding even more under control. They shed a bit year-round and more intensely twice a year. When they blow their coats, it’s even heavier.
