The Leonberger, also known as Leanonberger, is a handsome, large dog that originated in Germany. It has a lion-like mane that contributes to its striking and powerful appearance. Although they look impressive, they are known for being a real "Gentle Giant" which has even earned them a nickname. Although these dogs make good family pets and love being part of a family, Leonbergers are not the best choice for first time owners as they need to be trained by people who are familiar with this type of large and impressive dog.
