Alfie (kennel name and DOB unknown)

Alfie is a 7 year old black Newfie well loved by Cathy and Nick Wood. He was acquired as a re-home via welfare a few years ago. He has a perfect Newfie nature and really is the sweetest gentlest dog, very affectionate, reliable and steady, and has been described as an “old-fashioned gentleman”. He is also strong and extremely handsome, so really has it all!  He joined the Rother Valley Training Group two years ago and has passed level A,B,C in water tests and Beginners, Levels 1 and 2 in draught tests.

Bella is a lovely landseer, well loved by Cathy and Nick. She is full of enthusiasm for life and loves everything and everyone, and no one escapes a lick if within reach!  Bella loves swimming (including a quick dip in our pond if she gets a chance ) and as she smiles with her little teeth on show like a dolphin, we call her “dolphin dog”. She has taken to training with gusto, and passed A water test at age 6 months one day (minimum age entry 6 months), since which she has passed B and C water tests twice and also Beginners and Level 1 draught tests this season.
