LCA Membership List

This email list is a place to discuss and share information that directly relates to the Leonberger Club of America, and will be restricted to items specifically related to the LCA.  Members can subscribe on the Members section of the website.

The LeoList

The Leolist began in the Spring of 1995 with ten hardy Leo folks who couldn’t go one night without talking about their wonderful canine companions. Since that time it has grown to over 800 members worldwide. This is a place to engage in friendly conversation about your favorite topic—Leos, of course–and to share experiences and ask questions. Chances are someone somewhere has an answer.

This Leolist is devoted to the discussion of Leonberger dogs. We welcome all enthusiasts, prospective owners, breeders or anyone else with an interest in this topic. Absolutely anything that has anything to do with Leonbergers may be discussed here, such as health issues, training, brags, friendly chat, etc. Information to participate in the Leolist.
