Leonberger Question

I am thinking of getting a Leo, and have fallen in love with the breed. I haven't owned a dog larger then a golden retriever before and was wondering, if you fenced in a yard how high and what substance would be needed? Also, how much can I expect to spend on dog food in a given month?

Leonbergers want to be with you, unless you leave them unattended they won't hop the fence in our experience. Our 2 Leos eat a 24 lb. bag of blue buffalo salmon in about a week.

Wow, so they don't eat a lot at all, good to know. I am fully looking forward to a dog that stays with me all the time as I miss that bond and companionship. Someone would be home at least most of the day but I will have to go to work and a fenced in yard would be ideal for the unsupervised potty runs or when I need to run an errand. What height, depth, and substance would be good to keep a Leo in the yard? I'm also thinking of the Leo's safety as I live in an area where rather large coyotes have been seen, so a line/tether would not be safe for any dog.
