Height and Weight 54-62 cm in height and 25-34 Kg in weight. Males are larger than females and at the top end of the size ranges.

Living Conditions Ideally suited to life in the country but also do well in towns so long as they have access to a secure garden and get plenty of exercise.

Exercise Requirements An active breed which needs lots of walking everyday to maintain a fit and healthily state. Sometimes they have a tendency to become lazy and if allowed will become couch potatoes and soon become overweight. This should be avoided by providing the much needed exercise.

Grooming The short thick coat just needs a good brush once a week to remove dead hair and skin. An all year round heavy moulting breed.

Famous Examples
