Newfound Friends

Newfoundland dogs have been the St. Bernards of the sea for hundreds of years and now they are helping to make lifesaving fun for the next generation of lifeguards. Each week a group of magnificent 14 stone Newfoundlands, the canine members of the Newfound Friends Society, arrive at a lake in the Cotswold’s to hone their lifesaving skills along with their human lifeguard companions. The dogs are so enthusiastic about the training that it certainly rubs off on the young trainees. These incredible dogs raise money for Children’s charities with their daring displays. They’ve appeared on Blue Peter, GMTV, Countryfile, ITV and the One Show.
