New Members Welcome
If you would like to become a member of the Newfoundland Club, please download complete and return our application form.
New members should be proposed and seconded by existing members but if you don't know any existing members but would still like to join, please email our Membership Secretary, Linn Kleinman.
Our BREEDERS FOR LIFE scheme is designed to provide a quality assurance mark for prospective Newfoundland puppy purchasers that the breeders follow the very best practices in their breeding program.
It is hoped that the scheme web site will be found by those searching the Internet for Newfoundland puppies and provide the essential information about Health Testing for our breeding stock and encourage people to be discriminating when selecting a breeder.
There are criteria for becoming a Breeder For Life member, such as three consecutive years and current membership of one or more of the UK Newfoundland Breed Clubs but breeders or stud dog owners do not necessarily have to be Newfoundland Club members - see the Scheme Requirements page for details.
We cordially invite suitably qualified breeders to join the scheme - an Application Form can be downloaded here.
Scheme memebers will have a public profile page on the web site and will be able to advertise their litters too.
We are always looking for new homes suitable for dogs taken into our care. If you need to rehome your Newfoundland or would like to give a forever home to a Newfoundland, please contact one of our Welfare Co-ordinators;

Info and insights for prospective owners
Newfoundlands can be wonderful companions and as puppies are adorable. However, it is important to know what owning a Newfoundland entails so we have produced a couple of guides which contain lots of useful information and advice. We encourage you to download and read them carefully.
