About Horner Newfoundland Puppies | Newfoundland Breeder
Get ready to fall in love with these gentle giants. In 1998, I decided to purchase my first purebred dog. After much consideration and reviewing a dog breed book, I purchased a Newfoundland puppy for my wife’s birthday. We have never regretted that decision. We live on 21 acres in rural Wilmington, Ohio where the dogs have room to play, eat, sleep, and have beautiful puppies. Our dogs live with us forever, and the pups are an added bonus. I strive to produce the perfect Newfoundland puppies. I follow AKC standards to the best of my ability. The following colors are AKC standard; black, brown, gray and white with black markings.
We also have english bulldog puppies for sale, so make sure to see those available puppies!
AKC Newfoundland Puppy Breed Information
Keeping your Newfoundland puppy well-groomed and healthy is easy. Check your dog’s ears weekly to remove debris and keep them free of infection. Daily brushing is a good bonding experience and enhances the shine of your Newfoundland’s luxurious coat. We have professional grooming done in the spring. The dogs love it! All that hot, heavy, hair gone for the warmer months. Give your Newfie access to drinking water continually until 2 hours before bedtime. Water buckets can be clipped to your pup’s kennel. They drink lots of water. Feed them a quality, premium dog food. Feed them breakfast. Dinner should be late afternoon, or as soon as you get home from work. Being a cold-weather dog, Newfoundland puppies should be taught kenneling in the coolest area of your home. Kenneling aids in housebreaking, teaches control, and provides a safe haven for your pup. Your pup’s kennel should be placed prior to bringing your pup home. Kenneling should not be used for punishment. Teaching kenneling preserves your home and your relationship with your pup. It’s not a good idea to leave an unsupervised pup loose in your home. We prefer fenced yards or farms for our pups. Exercise requirements can be met with walks and creative ideas you come up with, if you don’t have a fence. Swimming is natural for these guys. Be careful to rinse off your pup, paying attention to cleaning and drying inside the ears.
To preserve your puppy’s hips and elbows do NOT allow jumping off decks, pick-up truck beds, your bed or any other raised surface. Their bones are soft until 2 years of age and can be damaged by jumping off higher ground. To avoid complications we recommend NO STAIR use.
Jumping, chewing, cute, little pups create jumping, chewing, 150-pound dogs. Gentle corrections with one word commands and use of their name consistently work great for us. “Good girl, Punkin.” “ No, Baehr!” We socialize our dogs with kids, other dogs, and walk them on a leash. The more we can safely expose our dogs to, the better. For instance, who will watch your dog when you vacation without him? Does your pup know this person? Newfoundlands are great with kids and other pets, but they are not canine babysitters. Finally, please love your pups throughout their lives.
