Powder Ridge Newfoundlands
It all starts with a dream.
Power Ridge Newfoundlands is a small kennel nestled on 7 acres of fenced in pasture land in the Maryland countryside outside of Gaithersburg. We currently live with Six Newfoundlands. The guy's enjoy the ability to roam the pastures, woods and play in the stream located on our property. Our Newfs are part of our family and live in our house with us. They have free roam of the house, eat with us and sleep where every they feel like. Our dogs often vacation with us down at the Outer Banks.
We purchased our first Newfoundland from St. Alban's Newfoundlands (Avalanche) back in 1995 and our second Newfoundland from Toad Hall (Toad Hall Dreams of a Blizzard (Lizzy)) the same year. We showed Avalanche to his championship and a CDX in obedience he also achieved a Sr. water title. At the same time, we were busy showing and training Lizzy. Lizzy went on to become out first VN. Over the years we have added Newfoundlands from Bear N Mind Kennels and Old Bay Newfoundlands.
After more than 15 years of being owned by Newfoundlands, showing in breed, obedience and working events, we decided to take the next step and breed our first litter. Having put in many years of research into the health and welfare of our breed. We only wish to enhance our breed. It is time to give something back to the breed if we possibly can. In 2011 with the help of our mentors Kathy Hamilton, Cindy and John Flowers from Old Bay Newfoundlands and so many other people we've met over the years we are very thrilled that we got the opportunity of breeding Allie to such a great dog as Lincoln. The Allie/Lincoln breeding produce 7 beautiful puppies. Three of them have gone on to earn AKC championships, and now working towards the Grand Championship title and one have earned a water rescue title.
