Welcome to the Northern Newfoundland Club...
2018 Open Show
The Northern Newfoundland Club held an excellent Open show on August 4th. There was a brilliant atmosphere, good sportsmanship, a
great sense of fun and enjoyment among exhibitors, committee and dogs.
The show was laid out on Friday by the NNC Show team Rose Evans, Stella Baxter, Margaret Cox, Jacqui Woodhall and Jill Barker with help from our President Mr John Evans. We laid out the show indoors rather than use the outside rings since another hot day was forecast on Saturday and so we opted to keep the dogs inside where it was cooler.
Thanks so much to our judge Mr Paul Dodd who had a large real quality entry to go over. He was wearing his judge’s hat rather than carrying his camera but of course all the dogs knew him and were delighted to see him. Lots of licks, kisses and general fun were the order of the day. Both the dogs and Paul seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves. We were delighted to award Paul with a fabulous engraved crystal trophy.
A huge thank you to our photographer Bethan Hughes who had a hectic day covering both shows. You can see her photos on the NNC Facebook page, on the Club website and in Bodrhonyn, her internet photo gallery.
John Evans our Club President and John Lloyd our Chairman took charge as ring stewards and ensured the classes ran smoothly. Our table stewards, Rose Evans and Stella Baxter were busy all day keeping the results on track while the rest of the show team Jacqui Woodhall and Jill Barker were ensuring the show ran smoothly.
We had two great raffles – the Main Raffle tickets were sold by Jo Beston and we took a brilliant total of £157. Our second raffle of a fantastic hamper was donated by Stella Baxter and raised £295, a brilliant result. Stella’s doggy cake was presented to the BIS winner and doggy donuts (for dogs, not people!) were also snapped up. Thanks to everyone who donated a wonderful range of prizes.
Thanks to Karen and Steve Hietschold who were in charge of a wonderful range of gleaming trophies while our new Welfare coordinator Michelle Jenkins presided over a great range of merchandise on the Welfare stand which raised over £270 . We have an extensive range of NNC Welfare sweatshirts, hoodies, bibs, blankets, fridge magnets, key rings, and other NNC merchandise for sale which are very popular. Sandra Brookes also sold a range of home crafted newfie gifts, including a beautiful varnished wood table with newfie design which was auctioned for £55 for Welfare. Natalie Arkell and her daughter Isabella also raised £29 for Welfare by selling liver cake and drew the winning hamper ticket so thank you Isabella for all your efforts.
NNC judging started 30 minutes before the Newfoundland Club show, judged by Willie Dobbin Jnr, which ran parallel with ours. We began with Dogs while the NC judged Bitches first. The classes ran very smoothly with exhibitors showing in both shows with minimal waiting times. Everyone worked in harmony and everything went like clockwork.
Major Results were as follows: Grand Best in Show was the climax of the day when the Best in Show from both shows competed for overall winner. Because this is a special award the beaten dog rule applies which means it does not matter if one of these Best in Show dogs was beaten by another dog in the other show. The same male won Best Dog in Both shows and ultimately was awarded top honours by the GBIS judge Ron Chadwick.

The email for welfare also remains the sam;: the address being - email@example.com as this has been transferred to Michelle.

Welfare Still Needs Your Help!
As you know the Northern Newfoundland Club Welfare believes that we all have a responsibility to rescue dogs in need; to educate the public about the desirability of adopting Newfoundlands as companions and family pets in the home.
None of this would be possible without the generous donations of money that we receive, and therefore we are appealling to you all to help by making a donation to NNC Welfare.
To find out more about the work and some of the costs involved, click the link below.
Our members and visitors to this our Club website are vitally important to our fund raising efforts therefore we have decided to raise the profile of Welfare by including below a new Welfare Paypal donation facility. We would be most grateful for any donation, however small.
Club Open Show
The NNC Open Show run in conjunction with the NC was judged by Mr Paul Dodd; We had an excellent entry of dogs, their was a very friendly atmosphere and the show was a great success.
Some results and photos are online, remaining results, critques and photos will follow as soon as possible.

The primary purpose of this web site is to put potential Newfoundland puppy buyers in touch with reputable and recognised breeders by steering them away from general online puppy sites (e.g. Epupz, etc).
