The average live span of a Newfoundland dog is anywhere between 6-10 years. But some can live as long as 14-15 years. The life-span of a dog has many variables, such as; linage, how much the puppy/dog is exercised as a puppy/dog, weight and diet. To get the most things on your side, get a Newfoundland from a responsible and reputable breeder that does all health checks, feed your Newfie a high-quality grain-free dog food, keep your Newfie lean, do not over-exercise your dog; do as much low-stress exercise as possible, ie: swimming. As well as get your dog yearly or even bi-yearly check ups at a vet and do all necessary vaccinations for your area.
