Bred with Pride for Health, Temperament and Breed Standard


Hello, and welcome to our website!

Lanfear Newfoundlands is a small Canadian Kennel Club (CKC) registered breeder kennel located in rural Manitoba, Canada. We live on a large acreage where all our newfs are raised and kept in our home as cherished members of the family. We are passionate about the breed and love to chat newfs - if you ever have any questions don't hesitate to contact us!

Our breeding program focuses on:



All dogs used in our breeding program will have:

- OFA hips and elbows rated by board-certified radiologists

Eyes checked multiple times by a board-certified ophthalmologist

Hearts checked by a board-certified cardiologist

- Patellas checked by a veterinarian

- DNA tested for cystinuria

- be overall healthy with no major or concerning health issues with either parent (eg., allergies, cruciate tears, bloat, etc)

Puppies will be echo-dopplered by a veterinarian with advanced training in ultrasonography around 9-10 weeks prior to going to new homes.

We breed newfoundland dogs for their iconic sweet and lovable disposition. Our newfoundlands are easygoing, affectionate and very social with humans. We do not breed dogs with undesirable traits such as timidness or aggression.




Our objective is to safeguard the distinctive qualities of the Newfoundland breed. With every carefully planned breeding, we strive to identify and enhance these sought-after attributes, aiming to create robust and healthy representatives that embody the true essence of a Newfoundland in both appearance and behavior.


Why "Lanfear"?

When we got our first newf, we already had a cat named Elayne from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. In keeping with the theme, we picked "Lanfear" which translates to "Daughter of the Night" so we officially registered her as Jalynn's Daughter of the Night. She marked the beginning of our life-changing journey. In her honor, we chose to name our kennel after her, ensuring her name lives on as an integral part of our legacy.
