The Newfoundland Club

Promoting the working abilities of Newfoundlands

A working test in progress

There are many active and enthusiastic groups around the UK involved in both water and draught work training of Newfoundlands and there is much to be said for joining one of these groups if you want to have fun and train in working disciplines - these are links to some of them.

Please note that these groups and clubs are independent of The Newfoundland Club and whilst we work closely with several of them they are not under our jurisdiction or control.

If you know of any working groups/clubs which we haven't included or spot any broken/out-of-date links, please let us know by emailing
