Wilbears - Jason and Mel West

Somerset based Newfoundland Breeders



We first fell in love with the breed in 2012, we were finally entrusted with our first girl 'Willow' in 2014. We actively show and work both our girls successfully, both enjoying the show ring and water.

We bred our first litter in January 2018, with the purpose of keeping a puppy from our own line, this litter gave us 'Barley Bear'. Health tests and temperament was and is of up most importance for us when breeding and choosing a sire. We breed infrequently and when we are ready for a new member to our family.

Our 'Willow' is now a fully assessed Therapy Dog, having done several months of visits to a hospital geriatric ward, and currently working with children with Special Educational Needs. When she is 'off duty' she is enjoying newfie-style low impact agility.

Our dogs live in and rule our house and are affectionally known as 'our girls'. We have regular contact with all our puppy parents who are all now friends for life. We will always be there to offer lifelong advice and support.
