September 7-10, 2023 - Ancaster, ON

What's happening

We all know that Newfoundlands are an extremely versatile breed. They can move seamlessly between the show ring, the obedience ring and a lake. Here's your chance to see them do it all in one place!


The National Specialty is the main event for Conformation on Saturday but there are also four additional sets of points available in the Oakville Kennel Club all breed shows. Bring out your youngsters and your seasoned pros to compete in Sweeps as well!

Water Rescue

After a summer of training, what better place to earn your WRD title than the National Specialty! Taking place on the Thursday, our water testing is just 20 minutes from the conformation site so plan on getting wet and watching our favourite breed do what they do best. 


Come out and see that Newfs are more than just beauty! Our National Obedience trials will take place on Friday, September 8. As a working breed, they excel at Obedience and its beautiful to see the bond between handler and dog.
