Adult leos need about 525-625 grams of dried food a day in two meals. This depends a lot on the brand you use. Leos are average in their training ability. They are not stubborn, but will always consider their responses to your directions rather than responding immediately. That's because they were bred to protect without direct supervision.

Actually, Leonbergers were bred for two things, to be a family companion and to resemble a lion. They're bred from st bernards, new foundlands, and great pyrenees. One characteristic was paid attation to though, a slection for non-droolers. I spoke with a Pyr breeder who was head of his akc...chapter? He fed 1-2 cups of food per dog of a high quality organic/holistic dog food. Leonbergers are sensitive to emotions and people oriented and not nippy or mouthy. Good luck and check out dogs101 who covered this wonderful breed on animalplanet.com
