Facebook - Special

Page heading from Facebook page Newfoundlands - The Truth and Nothing But The Truth

This Facebook page, entitled "Newfoundlands - The Truth and Nothing But The Truth", is separate from our main Club page. It contains information and advice for all Newfoundland owners and prospective Newfoundland owners.

Breeders For Life logo

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.
