Aberforth Newfoundlands is a small Newfoundland breeder in Ontario. We are located outside the town of Gananoque, Ontario in the heart of the Thousand Islands where our dogs live with us as part of our family. Sasha fell in love with the Newfoundland dog at the age of 16 and owned her first Newfoundland in 2004 from Marcarpent Kennels.
We are a small Newfoundland breeder kennel starting out with a planned litter once a year. We breed dogs to produce healthy, long living Newfoundlands with excellent temperaments and good conformation.
Our Dogs live in our home with us as part of our family. “Its the dogs house, we just pay the mortgage”
Sasha is a Registered Veterinary Technologist and has worked in the Veterinary field since she was 16 years old. She currently manages an Emergency After Hours Veterinary Clinic and teaches part time at St. Lawrence College in the Veterinary Technology program. In her spare time she enjoys boating, kayaking and spending time with her dogs in and out of the water. Sasha and her husband Chris enjoy travelling and try to do so as often as their dogs allow them to.
Our puppies are all raised in our home and are exposed to many different stimuli throughout their time here. We ensure they are well rounded and have lots of time with kids, dogs, cats, noises and smells. Puppies are all started with house training around 2 weeks of age and then introduced to crate training around 6 weeks of age to help the transition to their new families.
