Giant Breed Dogs: To drool or not to drool

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

My husband and I currently have two dogs (a standard dachshund that is 14 years and a border collie/great Pyrenees puppy). We would like to eventually get a larger breed dog like a Bernese Mountain Dog or a Newfoundland. My husband has concerns about the amount of drooling that these large breed dogs do. We are looking for some drooling advice. Please let us know what type of giant breed dog you have and how much drooling it actually does. For example, little drooling occasionally or massive amounts continually. Thank you for your help!!

I do know Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs (a very extra large short haired version of the Berner) are considered a dry mouth breed. I'm not sure about Berners though. I know myself at some point in my life would love to own a GSMD!

Newfies are NOT a dry mouth breed by any stretch of the imagination! Drool, drool, drool! A lot of it, all the time.

None of your Mastiffs (English Mastiffs, Dogue de Bordeaux, Bullmastiff, Neo Mastiffs, ect.) are dry mouth breeds either! Again, a lot all the time. We hand out drool rags at the door, consider getting slimed before getting out of the door normal, and put time aside at least once a week to wipe the walls and ceiling of drool! big laugh

Good luck, my friend!

We've had several Danes and Mastiffs and all drool. Some more then others but it's still there. With dogs that size some drool is going to happen.

As the above poster said, if you want an anti-drool dog, stay far from the sweet mastiffs. I grew up with 2 and you flood with the amount of drool. My friend has a newfie and it drools also. Not as bad as the mastiff but still pretty bad. My German Shepard doesn't drool that often, only after a (really) long drink.

Bernese Mountain Dogs are a dry mouthed breed - they do not drool (except when you have a tasty treat in your hand)laugh out loud. Newfs drool a lot, and you will need to keep a drool cloth near by at all times.
