The Covid-19 pandemic meant that events planned for the first half of 2021 had to be cancelled and now the Dog Of The Year competition planned for on 02 October 2021 has had to be postponed to 2022. The Working Tests (Water and Draught) in Jersey from 02 to 07 October are scheduled to go ahead.

Please see our Club Calendar page for details.


The Southern Newfoundland Club (SNC) was formed in 2008 and is registered with the Kennel Club and recognised as an official UK Breed Club.

The club aims to promote, protect and preserve the Newfoundland dog breed by the involvement of the Club and our growing membership in Working, Showing and Welfare activities.

We are particularly keen on encouraging participation and involvement by our junior members so we feature prominently their results and achievements on this site. New pictures, announcements and other features are added regularly ... so please visit often!
