    I have been playing around on some breed selection tools and I am curious about the leonberger. They are such adorable BIG fluff balls. Does anyone out here have any experience with these dogs?

    They are getting a lot of press lately. They seem to be a very nice-mannered large dog (that isn't supposed to drool). I've seen more and more of them at the shows recently. There is a big four day show coming up in Cleveland OH from Dec 16-19. There should be some there. The show schedule should be published after entries close. You can check this link: for more information.

    There was a breeder when I used to work at the vet office who would bring in their Leonbergers. The big male's name was Atlas and he was a real calm, gentle giant. I remember his feet looked like bear claws though! I remember the owner saying the dogs' favorite past time was lying in front of the fireplace.
