About the authors:
Bettina and Annina Salmelin started with Newfoundlands in 2003 by importing a
Newfoundland bitch puppy from Finland to Belgium. They started showing at
conformation, obedience and water rescue later that same year, and to date have
successfully shown and competed in conformation, water rescue, obedience, rally
obedience and draft work in 14 countries all around Europe. Bettina and Annina
have organized grooming days and international water rescue camps in Finland and
the United States (Oregon and Michigan). In addition, Bettina has trained and
lectured at water rescue camps in Finland, Estonia and New Zealand. Bettina and
Annina have judged at obedience tests in the United Kingdom and are qualified UK
Kennel Club obedience judges, and an APDT (Association for Pet Dog Trainers)
rally obedience judges since 2011. Bettina has also qualified to be a Good
Canine Citizen Bronze level judge.
Bettina and Annina started breeding
Newfoundlands especially for their working qualities in 2005 under the prefix
Working extensively and intensively with their own dogs, they have produced dogs
that are being trained as official K-9 lifeguards, service - and therapy dogs.
Some of their dogs are being shown successfully at conformation and others live
with other breeders. Their dogs are sourced for their working qualities and have
been exported to many countries such as USA, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany
Bettina’s special interest for water rescue has allowed her to performed a
stimulated helicopter water rescue exercise with two of her own-bred dogs with
the Italian Water Rescue Dog School (SICS) in 2010, complete the Belgian
Lifesaving Federation certification for an official K-9 lifeguard team with two
of her Newfoundlands in 2011 and become an International Lifesaving Federation
K9 Water Rescue Team instructor in 2012. Bettina is currently working her
Newfoundlands in the United Kingdom whilst pursuing a university degree in
veterinary studies. Annina has completed a Biology Masters degree in the UK and
is studying towards her Veterinary Physiotherapy degree. She is actively working
with her Newfoundland and Pug.
Their dogs have received a lot of media attention all around the world. They
have been filmed for TV series and news casts, along with features in several
newspaper articles and dog magazines. Bettina’s research articles have been
published in several dog magazines and books since 2006. In 2009 she co-wrote a
Newfoundland breed book in Finnish with M. Mantyla. "Training a Newfoundland for
Water Rescue" - book was compiled by Annina and Bettina Salmelin to fullfill the
evergrowing demand for a thorough training guide for water rescue dogs.
