Yes, Newfoundlands like other dogs. Newfoundlands have a gentle, friendly demeanor that makes them good companions for your family and other dogs.
However, sometimes Newfoundlands forget how big they are and can play too roughly with smaller dogs or younger children. Adult males can weigh up to 150 pounds, so they can easily knock over other dogs or young children. If a Newfoundland does knock down another dog or child, it isn’t because the dog is being aggressive, it is because your Newfoundland is being too friendly and playful.
The good news is you can train your Newfoundland to play more appropriately around other dogs and children so they don’t cause any harm to anyone.
