At Hunterhill Kennel we take pride in our ladies. They have all been selected from stock that exemplifies the breed in terms of confirmation, that conceives dependably, that carries well, that births easily and that cares well for her pups. Beyond all this, though, we breed for the Newfoundland temperament. We want a dog who is affectionate, attentive, and sensitive to the needs of her family. The ladies in the breeding rotation are between two and six years old. They are generally bred once a year and are retired at six — or sometimes seven — years, after which time they take their place as meeters and greeters.
