NEWF FEST will be returning for the 3rd year running at Rother Valley Country Park, Sheffield! We will be holding all of your favourites including introductions to working (water, draught & scent work), fun have a go activities, a dog show, grooming seminar, low impact agility, stalls and there's much more to be announced. The event is a good opportunity to meet other Newfoundland owners and learn more about the breed, however as usual the fun day is open to all breeds, we've had everything from Cocker Spaniels to Leonbergers! Every year it gets bigger and better. We will also be hosting certified water tests levels A - E.

Limited on site camping is available - please visit for details.

RVWN Christmas Meal

The RVWN Christmas meal was held on 2nd December and an enjoyable evening was had by all. It's been a very busy year for us with becoming an independent group, we've also had a very full on schedule for the majority of the year holding & attending numerous working events and not forgetting Newf Fest, so it was a welcome break to celebrate together.

We had the opportunity to thank David Pugsley for his 30+ years of support by gratefully presenting him with his certificate of honorary membership.

We also recognised the dogs & handlers working achievements throughout the year - a full breakdown of winners can be found on our new Trophies & Awards page. A big congratulations goes to all of the winners this year.

More photos from the event can be found in our gallery.

Again -thank you everyone for your support and hard work this year, here's to 2024!

Autumn Draught Tests

We will be holding our first draught test of the year at Sherwood Forest on Sunday 5th November. The test will be held under the Northern Newfoundland Club & includes beginners to level 4.
