From the Inside Flap
Newfoundlands Today The Newfoundland, known as the gentle giant of the dog world, combines a large, powerful physique with a mild, docile character. Originally used by fishermen to tow out heavy nets, the Newfie is as much at home in the water as on land, and there are tales of brave Newfoundlands rescuing survivors from shipwrecks. The breed was also used for draught work, and still performs this task in Newfoundland and Labrador. In this highly comprehensive Book of the Breed, the authors examine the origins of the breed and its development as a highly-prized working dog. The Breed Standard is analyzed in detail, and there is advice on training the show dog, the working dog, and the companion dog. Diet, exercise and grooming requirements are outlined, and there is guidance on breeding Newfoundlands, including breeding for the brown and the Landseer colours. Illustrated with more than 150 top-quality colour and black-and-white photographs.
About the Author
Hedd and Del Richards first became interested in the Newfoundland in 1979. Since then, their Sheridel kennel has exhibited all three colours with considerable success. They have owned or bred a total of ten UK Champions including the present breed record holder, Ch. Ir. Ch. Sheridel Crawford. Both are Championship show judges of the breed, and are qualified to judge Level I Draught Tests. Their dogs also compete in Water Tests on an occasional basis. Hedd and Del have both been members of the British Newfoundland Club for a number of years. Hedd is currently the Chairman, and has served on the Health and Longevity sub-committee. He has arranged many seminars and educational events to promote responsible ownership and competent judging. When they are not attending shows, Hedd and Del's favourite hobby is hiking across the Welsh Mountains, accompanied by their beloved dogs.
