Newfoundland Rescue, 4 September 2021

Discover what it’s like to be rescued ‘at sea’ by a 70kg hero - a Newfoundland Rescue Dog.

You will be suited up, taken out into the water by boat and then asked to jump in. But don’t worry, it won’t be long before the Newfoundland dogs show off their amazing water-rescue skills and tow you safely back to dry land.
