The Performance Dog
The Landseer ECT is a robust and powerful working dog breed.
The LECT exhibits above average intelligence, is an independent thinker, moderate to high energy level and has an excellent sense of smell making them well suited for various performance exercises and trials to include Obedience, Rally, Agility, Draft and Nose work. With few exceptions the LECT are lovers of water and are excellent swimmers and excellent candidates for various water exercises and trials. They have a natural instinct for water rescue and even Dock Diving.
Some LECTs have what is referred to as hunting instinct or prey drive. There could be ways to use this as an advantage in games with your dog such as chasing a ball , Lure Coursing, FCAT or even Barn Hunt. These dogs are very powerful and a two legged human is not a match if an LECT wants to take ﬂight in a chase, so training in obedience and excitement control is essential.
