How often do you let your Newf be a nanny? Newfs will be nannies. All you have to do is let them. They need no training.  

When Virginia, our daughter, was six, we entered Kati in a draft test sponsored by the Bear Mountain Newf Club. Consie handled Kati in the test and, during the out-of-sight down; I hid so as not to distract Kati but watched her unbeknownst. Virginia played loudly with other kids in a wooded area behind the ring used for basic control. Clearly, Kati could hear Virginia and she was concerned. I watched Kati turn her head this way and that, looking for Consie or me. Finally, when she concluded that neither Consie nor I were paying proper attention to Virginia, she sat up, turned around, and watched Virginia until Consie returned. There was nanny work to be done and she did it.
