From the Newfoundland breed page:

These true gentle giants combine the brawn of a Great Pyrenees with the sweet and laid-back personality of a Labrador. Patient, loving and fun, Newfoundlands blend perfectly with the household. They get along famously with the most vivacious and active children, and they are very polite around new people.

Is the Newfoundland really the calmest dog out there? Well, this finding is based on the "disposition" information that you provide when you set up your dog's profile and let us know about some of the characteristics of your pooch. So that means that we have a LOT of breed-specific information from the people who know about dogs best: YOU.

We also have data that shows how you rate your dog when it comes to intelligence, energy, playfulness and friendliness, so we'll be bringing out some of those stats in the future as well!

Have a Newfoundland and want to boast? OR - what do YOU think is the calmest dog breed? Let us know in the comments!

Calm and chilled out woofs,
