Newfoundland Dogs originated in Canada in 1886 where the climate varies in different parts of Canada from hot dry summers to humid summers and moderate springs and cold winters, some areas reach below freezing temperatures. Newfoundland Dogs were used as water rescue dogs and for hauling fish nets to shore and pulling carts of the day's catch to the market for the Canadian Fisherman. In the beginning the role of Newfoundland Dogs were to rescue people from drowning in the water, hauling their fish to the shore and for pulling carts of their day's catch to the market among the Fisherman of Canada. Newfoundland Dogs are natural born swimmers and have partially webbed feet. Newfoundland Dogs have the strength to save a grown man from drowning. Newfoundland Dogs are massive dogs and very powerful and strong which made them a great fit for the role of water rescue dogs among the Fisherman.

In the late 1800's when Newfoundland Dogs were working on boats with the Canadian Fisherman they were probably known to eat fish or any birds that may of landed on the boat or whatever table scraps their owners fed them in order to survive. Today, Newfoundland Dogs are known to make excellent family companions and wonderful guard dogs. Newfoundland Dogs are one of the world's most beloved breeds. Newfoundland Dogs are so patient and sweet-tempered that they have been called "Nanny Dogs" for kids. Newfoundland Dogs are moderately active, they only require 30 minutes of exercise daily in order to stay happy and healthy. Newfoundland Dogs may not have to search out food as often as they had to in the past because now their owners will feed them dog food. Newfoundland Dogs may not need the same amount of food as they once did when they were working for fisherman. Now, that they are known as family companions they don't require as much food because they are not as active.
