What is the life span of a Newfoundland dog in the wild?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Naturally, large dogs live for shorter periods of time than small dogs. This is because large dogs have more joint problems and heart troubles.

The average Newfoundland can live to be about 10-12 years old.

An 'outdoor' Newfie (participates regularly in water rescue, outdoor activities, lives mostly outdoors) can live to be about 9-11 years old, because of more stress on their joints.

A well-cared-for and loved Newfie can live to be about 14-15 years old. Treat him like you would treat your family--he IS part of your family. Newfoundlands are amazing, gentle, peaceful and sweet dogs. They make wonderful guardians and are gentle with children.

How do you play hockey better?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Hi I am not sure if you mean personally or as a team or ...? From the team approach, it has been said that "hockey is the most collaborative of sports". Meaning that - more than any other sport- a team that cooperates can beat a more skilled opponent that is not playing as a team.

But if you mean personally, in the middle of a game - it is all about effort. Effort beats skill. Effort beats size. Effort beats experience, luck, team politics, and bad officiating.
