The Leonberger is a large, muscular, and elegant dog with a balanced rectangular build and is distinguished by a black mask and double coat. Mature males carry a lion-like mane on the neck and chest. For its size, the Leonberger is light on its feet and graceful in action. A dog or a bitch should be easily distinguishable as such. The Leonberger must always be shown naturally, with no alterations of coat, except for neatening of feet.
Coat colors are lion-yellow, golden to red-brown and all combinations thereof, each with a black mask. Sand-colored (cream, pale yellow) is acceptable.
The temperament of the Leonberger is a distinguishing characteristic. Self-assured and calm with a steady, playful demeanor, willing to please, and possessing a good capacity for learning, the Leonberger has a marked friendliness toward children. He does not show fear, shyness, or aggression toward people or other dogs.
The Leonberger requires average exercise, a daily walk is just fine for them. They tend to be very agile, despite their large size. They are easily trained and once socialized, get along well with other dogs.
