Water Rescue

Watching a Newfoundland pull a boat to shore or save a human life or two will take your breath away. Though many Newfs are naturally gifted, developing and perfecting water rescue skills takes a village. And OWNC is a great village with members who love spending days on the water working with our Newfs.

We help each other prepare for all levels of Water Rescue and we hold Water Tests in the fall where we test our skills and work on earning these titles:

  • WD (Water Dog)
  • Water Rescue Dog (WRD)
  • WRDX (Water Rescue Dog Excellent)
