About Big Arm Newfoundlands

Our lifetime love and admiration for the

Newfoundland breed is the inspiration behind Big Arm Newfoundlands, where our goal is to preserve the magnificent breed by offering them to families that feel the same way. That’s why we founded  Big Arm Newfoundlands, located in Big Arm, Montana. Here, our dogs, horses and children are all part of the family, and when you bring home a puppy you become a part of ours. 

At Big Arm Newfies, we strive to provide loyal, affectionate, and obedient lifetime pets. To achieve this, we implement a holistic puppy care approach. This practice ensures you will be receive an intelligent, happy, and well-rounded little buddy with the adoption of a puppy. 

The Big Arm Approach

to producing the best newfies



We believe a puppies' infancy significantly molds their personalities, behaviors, and therefore future. In order to ensure the best companion possible, we implement:  ​

  • Sound stimulation.

  • Socialization with other dogs.

  • Early Nuerological Stimulation (ENS).

  • Bathing, grooming, and nail care.

  • Positive and loving interactions (touch and kisses are encouraged) with people of all ages.

  • Basic manners ("No" biting or chewing)

  • Household desensitization.



Preparation is key to a successful home-to-home transition and a happy pup, so we provide all we can to make the it go as smoothly as possible. This means our puppies go home with a:​

  • Leash.

  • Collar.

  • Training kit (bells for door, clicker, treat pouch).

  • Baggie of puppy food (we use Purina Pro Plan large breed).

  • Toy.

  • Coffee cup.

  • Vaccine and deworming record.

  • 1 year genetic health guarantee.

  • Neuter or spay contract required, must have proof by 24 months.

  • Scent Blanket.

  • Treats.



We want to our puppies to find the best family fit, so we strategically filter families accordingly. Although this system may seem harsh, we feel it is beneficial for both dog and owner. That said, once a puppy application is approved we are happy accept buyers and encourage them to get to know the puppies, allowing them to choose which one fits their wants and needs best. In an effort to protect our puppies from parvovirus, we offer meet-and-greets via FaceTime or Zoom.
