General Appearance

Well balanced, impresses with strength and great activity. Massive bone throughout, but not giving heavy inactive appearance. Noble, majestic and powerful.


Large draught and water dog, with natural life-saving instinct, and devoted companion.

Exceptionally gentle, docile nature.

Head and Skull
Head broad and massive, occipital bone well developed, no decided stop, muzzle short, clean cut and rather square, covered with short fine hair.

Small, dark brown, rather deeply set, not showing haw, set rather wide apart.

Small, set well back, square with skull, lying close to head, covered with short hair without fringe.

Soft and well covered by lips. Scissor bite preferred, i.e. upper teeth closely overlapping lower teeth and set square to the jaws, but pincer tolerated.

Strong, well set on shoulders.

Legs perfectly straight, well-muscled, elbows fitting close to sides, well let down.

Well ribbed, back broad with level topline, strong muscular loins. Chest deep, fairly broad.

Very well built and strong. Slackness of loins and cow-hocks most undesirable. Dewclaws should be removed.

Large, webbed, and well shaped. Splayed or turned out feet most undesirable.

Moderate length, reaching a little below hock. Fair thickness well covered with hair, but not forming a flag. When standing hangs down-wards with slight curve at end. Tails with a kink or curled over back are most undesirable.

Gait / Movement
Free, slight rolling gait. When in motion slight toe-in at front acceptable.

Double, flat and dense, of coarse texture and oily nature, water-resistant. When brushed wrong way it falls back into place naturally.
Fore legs well feathered. Body well covered but chest hair not forming a frill. Hind legs slightly feathered.

Only permitted colours are: -

Black: dull jet black may be tinged with bronze. Splash of white on the chest, toes and tip of tail acceptable.

Brown: can be chocolate or bronze. In all other respects follow black except for colour. Splash of white on the chest, toes and tip of tail acceptable.

Landseer: white and black markings only. For preference black head with narrow blaze, evenly marked saddle, black rump extending to tail. Beauty in markings to be taken greatly into consideration. Ticking undesirable.

Average height at the shoulder: dogs 71 cms (28 ins); bitches 66 cms (26 ins). Average weight: dogs 64-69 kgs (140-150 lbs); bitches 50-54.5 kgs (110-120 lbs).

While size and weight are important it is essential that symmetry is maintained.

Any departure from the foregoing points should be considered a fault and the seriousness with which the fault should be regarded should be in exact proportion to its degree.

Note: Male animals should have two apparently normal testicles fully descended into the scrotum.
