*While water rescue has typically been limited to Newfoundlands and they are the only breed currently able to test through the Newfoundland dog club (athough this may be opening up to other breeds in the not too distant future when these become CKC recognized titles) we thought that this would be a cool sport to work in for any medium to large breed of dogs – even small dogs are welcome.
