Welcome to Lynn Kay Kennels 

Our family would like to welcome you to our website.​​​​​ Hello, my name is Linda Ward and I am the owner of Lynn Kay Kennels located in the countryside near Davison, Michigan.  I have almost 40 years of experience breeding Newfie Pups.  Our Newfoundland Pups are a big part of our family with many happy memories with all the ones we have enjoyed over the years.  We raise high quality newfie puppies with excellent health and temperament. Our puppies are bred with love and care to avoid birth defects and any other health complications.  We take great pride and joy to each puppy that is placed from each litter.  All of our puppies are treated like family before they become a member of yours.  These little babies are so used to being held, touched and talked to on a daily basis until they are placed in their new home. They are just the sweetiest things and we fall in love with each and every litter we have at Lynn Kay Kennels. We just love them to death and it’s just one of the reasons why we have continued to breed for all these years.  Each puppy is seen by our licensed veterinarian to ensure they are healthy and ready to go before they are shipped or picked up by their owners.  

Home of the Newfies ...

We have a wide variety selection of females and males to choose from. I have five kids and they all have newfies in their homes that we raise and breed together. Our family is now three generations of raising these beautiful gentle giants.  We have many references that you can read from previous customers if you are interested and some listed on our testimonial page for your review.​​​  
 
​​​​​​​​Our newfies come in Black, Brown, Gray, Fawn, Landseers and Black & White with any variation.  You will see all colors throughout the site from all the dogs we have owned and sold to our customers. They have dry mouths, tight eyes, large heads with lots of wrinkles. Some individuals on the web will say there is no such thing as a dry mouth newfie, but that just means they have never seen on or own one. When you visit us you will see how our dogs actually do have a dry mouth.   All of our dogs come with a one year 100% guarantee to ensure your complete protection and satisfaction.  We also guarantee their hearts for life.  
 
​Enjoy looking around the site and if you have any questions please feel free to contact us at anytime.   Customer satisfaction is our top priority.  ​​​​​​​​All our dogs are AKC-registered with a FULL registration. We feel it is important to explore, learn, and talk to our former customers and friends all throughout the US and Canada. Most breeders do not offer full registration, but we feel it's your right if you are paying for a registered dog.  Please feel free to call or email us to learn more about our Newfoundland puppies we currently have and up coming litters available.  Keep in mind, we require no deposit until the litter is born, but all paid deposits are moved up to the top of the waiting list for every litter that is born.  We accept $100 deposits by sending a check or paying by paypal on the site and this deposit is good for life.  Please review the contact page for details.

One of the things that stand out about the Newfoundland is their size, sweet temperament and nature.  They are often called a Newfy, Newfie and Newf and are considered a “working dog”.  Newfoundlands are known for being loving gentle giants.  They make great family companions and are wonderful around children. They are very social and playful, especially where there is water and kids.  Although Newfies are big dogs, they are very trainable, highly intelligent, eager to please and very sensitive when you raise your voice which makes them a great fit for any owner.  They are in tune with their owners and helps when training is consistent, calm and enforced with positive rewards and praise.  

These dogs can adapt to apartment living but would require walks so that they are given enough exercise and attention.  Much better suited for larger homes which give them the space and room to roam.  Surprisingly, they do well in just about any climate.  We have shipped our puppies all over the United States and Canada.  As with all dogs they can be sensitive to heat so we like to shave our dogs during the summer so that they are cooler in the higher temperature areas.  

Newfies have a double coat.  The undercoat is water resistant while the outer coat is coarse and full.  Our dogs tend to shed heavily once a year as the seasons change, but sometimes it might be twice a year.  In general, it’s nice to brush them weekly to keep their coat clean and nice and fluffy. They only require an occasional bath if they have been swimming or have gotten real dirty out playing in the mud. 
Additionally, you will need to care for their nails, ears and teeth.  If their nails get too long it can make their movement uncomfortable and or painful to walk. Monthly trimming is usually recommended. The ears are more prone to trapping dirt, debris and moisture which can lead to ear infections.  You will want to make sure and check their ears weekly to ensure they are dry and clean.  We tend to use peroxide or alcohol whips for cleaning.  Finally, dental care for your dog’s teeth is one of the most common health issues which can be prevented by brushing their teeth or using an enzyme toothpaste weekly can help prevent painful dental disease.  You can even help your effort by talking with your veterinarian on dental hygiene chews and a dental diet.  It’s very important that you get your new Newfoundland puppy used to having their mouth, paws and ears handled in the early stages of development which will make grooming a much easier experience as they grow.  This is also a nice bonding experience that both you and your dog will enjoy.
